Kelly the Culinarian: My Big Weekend

My Big Weekend

This weekend, I was left to my own devices. So I bought a wash machine.

It really wasn't that simple. When we got back from New Orleans, the machine would agitate, but not spin the clothes dry. So I paid a guy $90 to come over for 20 minutes and tell me it would cost $390 to fix. Instead, I took myself to the store and purchased a machine that was delivered that afternoon for the same price. Winning.

My sister then came over from Purdue and between the two of us, I think we did 10 loads of laundry. The machine might be cheap, but it works.

I made her my whole-wheat pizza and Alton Brown's perfect cookies. We then headed out to see Apollo 18. If you were considering it, let me save you $10: it is a terrible movie that left Katie and I laughing hysterically at completely inappropriate times. The end.

I met a high school friend for brunch Sunday at Walker Brother's Pancake House. The buttermilk pancakes here rock. My mom came over for dinner that day and I made spicy black bean burgers. I'll have to post this recipe sometime soon. They rock.

Finally, on Monday, I had a great 6.5-mile run as I taper for the Fort2Base Race. I picked up Tim from the airport with more freshly-baked Alton Brown Cookies. Alert the committee, my application for Wife of the Year is forthcoming.

Yay for Fort 2 Base! I'd suggest somewhere to meet but I'm beyond clueless!
