Happy Birthday Joe!

This photo of Joe’s head was one I shot when we were first dating, I used it on the first birthday card I made for him. The following year, I used it again and after that, it became tradition.

Turkey Pot Pie

I’m always looking for new ways to use up the leftover turkey from our holiday meal. I’ve made crepes, tetrazzini, and large vats of soup – but a pot pie felt like the ticket since I had an excess of vegetables in the fridge and wanted to add a new post-Thanksgiving dish to my bag of tricks!

Wouldn’t it be great?! Imagine all of the kids choking on your exhaust while they were trying to keep up on their pathetic bicycles! You would be the coolest kid in town! The SECRET was inside a $2 pamphlet!

Now you have to figure out a way to explain to Dad why you have to destroy the lawn mower and your bike you got last Christmas IN ORDER to build a GO-KART or SPEED-BIKE. The pamphlet did not contain that secret.
