Mushroom Flavored Pasta

See that cat back there in the picture?  His name is Bill.  Bill E. Goat to be precise.  My sister and I took him to the vet the first time so we got to pick his name.

Everyone else calls him Bucky.

Whatever you want to call him, he's a good cat.  And by good, I mean he hangs around a lot hoping that you give him some food.
By cat standards, that's being 'nice.'

But I can't really blame him.  He gets absolutely zero variety in his diet.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all exactly the same.  The only thing special are his treats each night, which are actually just 4 or 5 pieces of a different type of kibble.

Humans have tons of variety in our diets.  We can even have different flavored pasta if we want.  I rarely eat the same thing for 2 meals in a week.  If I were a cat, I'd probably beg too.

October 13 | Glamping was fun, but I think I'll stick with real camping.

Happy Hour: The Brindle

Hey guys!  Guess what?!  Today, Call Me Fudge turns 3!

This is my 483rd post and I'd like to be able to say that a lot has changed around these parts, but in all honesty, it really hasn't.
I still ramble about nothing.  I still share recipes with you.  I still sometimes take blurry, dark, poorly composed photos (like these!).  Most importantly, I am still grateful for every single person that stops by to read my humble words.

Thank you for your support for the past 3 years - I'll keep writing if you keep coming :)

Layered Taco Dip

Hey guys, guess what?!

I'm married!

That's a really weird thought.  After being someone's girlfriend for almost 10 years, 'wife' might be a hard word to get out for a while.

Austin and I have lived together for years already.  We literally graduated from college together...oh, and high school.  I'd say we know each other pretty well.
I've always wondered what it's like for people who get married so soon after meeting.  Or for people who don't live together first.  They probably have to figure everything out that first night or week or month.

I'm glad I don't have to do that right now.  The wedding was stressful enough :)

For example, I know that Austin hates olives and refried beans.  I also know that he's allergic to avocados.  So, I know that this app is not going to be his favorite.

Doesn't mean I can't make it anyway - so glad we're already past that stage of doing everything for each other ;)

Happy Hour: Elderflower Manhattan

The other night, Austin and I went to a barbecue at a friend's house and it was all pretty ordinary.  The burgers and brats weren't too crazy, the beer wasn't noteworthy, the company was good, but not weird.

Then we went into the basement.  Then we went into the sub-basement.
...And we found a speakeasy!

A legitimate prohibition-era speakeasy.  A 1920s homemade bar, ceiling supports made out of airplane parts, a hidden door. The whole, extraordinary thing!

The type of abnormal experience that makes you want to dress up in period-specific costumes, drink a strong cocktail and just generally pretend like you're friends with Gatsby.

Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Glaze

Ok, I might pretend that I'm not into the whole pumpkin craze, but...

I'm a liar.

Basically, that's it.  I actually love pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bars and even those candy corn that are shaped like pumpkins.
I've only had roasted pumpkin seeds once but those were addicting too!

Sorry, I'm such a liar.  I'll make it up to you with this pumpkin bread dripping with cream cheese glaze.  How's that?  Let's not mention my misguided posts of the past, k?
