Long Lost Friends

My great friend Carolyn is coming to visit us this weekend. Carolyn is such a champ (and she writes a blog). For starters, she lived with me for two years and put up with my nonsense straight out of college. She’s even the basis of the story I tell at the beginning of the Lentils chapter in Love Your Leftovers.

After living together, she moved to Bulgaria to teach English for one year which turned into five years (I think). She’s an awesomely outgoing person and always fun. We haven’t seen each other in a few years and now that she is back in the US of A, she wanted to come visit and see what Denver’s about.

We are planning a few activities like a hike and maybe a beer tour, but mostly I think we’ll just catch up and probably laugh a lot.

10 Kabobs for Grilling – It’s Father’s Day this weekend (don’t forget) and what better way to celebrate than firing up the grill. Here’s a great roundup of some kabob ideas! (@ The Kitchn)

Perfect Slow Pour Coffee – I don’t have a chemex, but maybe I will someday. Maybe someday I’ll also have four minutes to pour water over coffee. If you do though, here the coffee tutorial for you! (@ Huffpost)

Summer Red Velvet Cake – Red velvet cake is definitely in my top three cakes, but this version is just above and beyond. Love the fruit layers! (@ White on Rice Couple)

Grilled Steak Salad – Another Father’s Day treat… this is the salad for those who don’t like salads! (@ Recipe Girl)

Have a great weekend everyone! If you need me, I’ll be hiking and possibly drinking beer(s).

PS. If you want to know what Carolyn and I are staring at in this photo, I have no idea. I think it’s possible that we are doing our best angry professional wrestler stare.

  1. I believe the night started out with Evans telling everyone the secret to taking great pics was not to look at the camera, and 1324 took it to the next level…which is why almost every picture from that night has us looking everywhere BUT at the camera.
