Christmas 2010

I can't believe Christmas is next week, this month has flown by. I feel like Thanksgiving was last weekend.

This will be me and Ryan's first Christmas "home." We are on the every other year plan Kimball/Meador. This year is Meador year, and I am glad it worked out this way because this means we get to have our first Christmas (of being homeowners) in our new house. Our first Christmas as a married couple happened to be on our honeymoon. It was a special Christmas, even though we were away we still got a little mini tree to put up in the place we were staying.
We didn't have any decorations so we cut out snowflakes from newspapers, this will be a continued tradition for our tree year after year.
On the 15th we celebrated our anniversary, Happy Anniversary Ryan!

Kimball Kitchen: Chicken Parmesan

Tonight we made chicken parmesan with homemade marinara sauce courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis.

It turned out really good! I love the homemade sauce and fresh herbs, they really make the difference. Our one complaint is the recipe didn't call for the chicken to be breaded. Ryan and I both agree the chicken needs to be breaded, after all the chrunchy texture is the best part. Next time.

Giving Thanks...

For family, friends, and food!
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. Tom and Annette flew in from California. The time went by way too fast. We managed to squeeze in a visit to the Boulder Contemporary Art Museum, a trip to the Denver Aquarium, lunch with extended family, movies, decorated the Christmas tree, black Friday shopping, and of course Thanksgiving dinner. I hope all of you had a Happy Thanksgiving!
