w-g Oscar Contest 2012

My annual Oscar Contest is now open! If you pick the most correct answers, you'll win the big prize: The Monkey with the Dragon Tattoo. Yes, I made Lisbeth Salander Monkey. She has piercings; she has a Macbook; she has a golf club; and she has the titular tattoo. I think this is the most work I've ever put into a single monkey! (She's also the first one that's probably Not Safe for Work, given the slogan on her T-shirt.) And remember, in the event of a tie, the person that entered earlier wins. So don't wait too long! Read on for more photos, or go here to enter. [more...]

Slow Cooker Coq au VinDinner Tonight: Slow Cooker Coq au Vin
This was a new recipe for us! The Snook made it up in the crockpot in the morning before work. He left out the flour to make it low-carb. We had it with some cauliflower mash. It was a really nice dish to come home to, and it made plenty of leftovers. Highly recommended!
