Welcome To Texas, You’re Pregnant

I never thought I'd say this, but I miss California. I miss the way you can go outside and not break into a sweat from the sheer heat and humidity, that is both oppressive and shocking - given that it's only the beginning of April. I miss our salads.

Oh the perspective a lunch date with a dead cow can give…

  I'm in Texas, and if there is one thing I have learned in my four days here, it's that the Texans like their meats. We don't eat meat very often in California. That's not entirely true, I serve a very meat-and-potatoes-with-vegetables kind of menu for most dinners; but we aren't talking Texas meat.

The Worst Part About California

Don't believe anything the tourist ads, or the hipsters with their million dollar trust funds, tell you. California has a lot of downsides.

For one, you no longer have much change to the seasons, which is sort of depressing.… Continue reading The Worst Part About California

Did Somebody Say Aebleskiver Asylum?

Okay, I didn't really have any aebleskivers; yet, of course. And I'm not in an asylum. But yesterday I started off my three day tour of this strange Danish town by sharing with everyone the story of how my husband sent me to Solvang, CA, on a little bit of a "mental health retreat" since… Continue reading Did Somebody Say Aebleskiver Asylum?
