Odds and Ends

We have been anxiously awaiting our venue searching trip in Michigan this Memorial Day weekend but until that time Bryan and I had a mixed bag of things going on to keep us busy:

  • Took a float test in a City Park pool with Bryan for his rowing class (fully clothed in the water)
  • Picked up Ezell’s fried chicken and rolls for dinner afterwards…forgot the Faygo
  • Had Polly over for a much needed friend dinner (tried my hand again at the paprikash and spaetzle = delish)
  • Had our last play for the season at Seattle Rep; OutsideMullinger.  Phenomenal Irish romantic comedy followed by Yeti yogurt while walking in the rain!

    Last Seattle Rep play this season!

  • Took another break fromFareStart while Bryan made dinner for Billy, Valerie, Jeff and myself of a new to us recipe for chicken mole with lime cilantro rice.  Bryan tried this recipe from Blue Apron and it was relatively simple and super delicious:  https://www.blueapron.com/recipes/chicken-mole-with-green-rice
