food and family news

'tis the season for winter squash...

and pumpkin gnocchi.
No actual photos of the finished meal, but imagine, if you will, oven roasted squash, carrots and sweet potato served with  sage-brown-butter sauce drizzled gnocchi.

Yep, I saved the best for last.
We are now a dog family.
A family of 2 parents, 2 kids, 2 pets (Jose the cat and a dog) and 2 fish.
She is the "top" dog.

Her birth name is Dottie.
She responds to Dot.
Delia calls her Dottie.
John would prefer Deuce.
We have an Aunt Dottie.
As for the official name...stay tuned.
Oh, and yes we are a wee bit crazy.
