uncle beal turned 26 last week and our super fun, super yummy tradition of mom and sister's birthday lunch lived on strong at tucano's (thanks mom!)
uncle beal used to be a very private person...not anymore! something about turning 26 made her take a dare to swing her saucy b-day present from catie up in the air around her head for $20...sheesh! so much for privacy!
and last but not least, i've found a new past time while jon is out of town for weddings. i'm currently addicted to "top chef". i found this amazing thing called amazon unbox where i can download an episode for $1.99. i can watch the current season for free...and i have...all 5 episodes. and this weekend i watched all of season 3. during the finale i got really hungry and decided to go downstais for a midnight snack. i didn't realize until i started cooking the extent to which i am addicted to this show. it's manifesting itself in really strange ways...p.s. i made this meal at 11:32 last night. it's egg in a nest with potatoes i cooked like risotto (pouring in the broth until it cooks down and pouring in some more until the potatoes are tender) garnished with diced tomatoes, italian parsley, extra virgin olive oil and fresh ground pepper. i'm officially weird.
