Server Maintenance?

The sprinkler got left on. The basement filled up with water. Luckily I have the server 6 ft up. Right now I can't even get to it without mopping up water.

The best decision ever

Not buying this house on North behind the linor several years ago. It would have ruined our lives.

I hope I never see any part of my house in this condition.

Steves clam shack at the harbor

I think its the same guy from elmwood. The menu is pretty similar. We got Fanny bay oysters and steamed clams. I wish I took pics but my hands were full of delicious shell fish.

I ordered the Fanny bay and he tried to sell me into trying a variety. I said I am pretty sure I like the Fanny bay and he said they were the best but he likes to save them for himself ;) They were really good.

Etched in stone

Messing up type in stone seems so permanent. Especially if its a war monument and its the name of the country. Would you take it off your CV?

There is lard in the crust?!

Two hours before the party, where we planned on serving 5 quiches, we realized we only had pie crusts with lard and the whole thing was supposed to be vegetarian. Having been vegan for a long time I know how that can be a big deal so I ran out to pricerite to grab the ingredients as there was no time to go anywhere else.

That store is great if you want economy sized boxes of processed junk food but it was very hard to find the raw ingredients I needed. The only flour they have is Goya brand in the small bag. It is not organized with baking goods as sections like that don't exist. Instead its just with all of the other Goya products.

Anyways, I had never made crusts before but thanks to the kitchenaid it worked out great and I have it memorized now.

1 crust is:
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
5 1/3 tbsp butter
4-5 tbsp water

The Flour and salt get mixed. Add the butter and mix till it looks like crumbs. Then slowly add the water. Make a ball and roll it out.

Honestly, home economy classes from middle school paid off because it worked out great.

Pre wedding shower preparation

These strawberry, sugar cookie, whip creamed puffs based on a similar dessert at Globe Market came out so good. I could eat every freakin' one.

Buffalo Citybration Balloon Ride Canceled

We headed down to the outer harbor for the Buffalo Citybration balloon ride but there was no balloon due inclement weather. It would gave been cool if they had some sort of announcement on their website or twitter feed or a sign because we were totally confused looking for the balloon.

Luckily I had my phone with me and they had a contact number. After that we headed over to the observation deck at city hall and ate a bunch of food.

I hate beer bottles

We had to clean out the back hall for the wedding shower this weekend. Returning these bottles seems like a lot of work considering that I probably had around ten beers this entire year. and in the end it was worth like $10. Next time I am just putting them out for the homeless people.
