My favorite two recipes that Jay and I have cooked most often is her Cream of Cheddar Soup and Lime Chicken Avocado Salad. Jay makes the salad and I cook the soup. I am unable to find these recipes on-line, but if you're interested in trying them feel free to e-mail me and I'll send it to you. I did find a link to one of the newest recipes I tried and it's really good if you like hot wings. It's the Buffalo Chicken Pot Pie she made on her show on CBS. This isn't one of the 30 minute meals since it actually has to bake for 30 minutes, but it is delicious. We also loved the Breaded Pork Chops with Sage Cream Gravy which made me realize how much patience it takes to make gravy at a high altitude.
I suppose I'm thinking more about food because this is the quiet time of year in Telluride with nothing much to do. During the "off-season" the gondola and many shops and restaurants are closed, and we are just waiting for the snow to melt so we can hike and get on the Jeep trails. This week Jay was in Greeley for training, so I spent my time cleaning out the kids rooms upstairs. I took lots of stuff to the free box in town and even more stuff to the trash (Sshhhh, don't tell the girls. They haven't even noticed anything missing.)
Maralee has had a fun week. She was happy that everyone in school liked her new haircut. Ms. Overly even sent me an e-mail telling me how cute her hair is and that it looks like Maralee grew 2 inches taller over spring break. Maralee also lost a tooth and my parents wanted a picture of her tooth missing, so here it is.
After we came back from our Oklahoma trip, we kept Ari and Kristen's guinea pig, Lou Lou. Maralee had so much fun with her and enjoyed watched her eating her vegetables and hopping around. Garrett is enjoying his new job at the movie theater. He usually gets one of us in for free and gives Savanna free pop and popcorn. Last night we finally got to see "Horton Hears a Who." Savanna is having a blast on her new skateboard and some of the girls at school are starting to be interested in skateboarding now.
Hugs to all of our family and friends!! If you want to visit us, come stay with us in the Shandoka penthouse. We promise you won't be disappointed. :)
