the snow is back...and our besties 25th wedding anniversary!

after a mild month and almost no snow in february...we woke up to this this morning:

oh well - what can you expect? it is march after all!

supper the other night was pork chops marinated in soya, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and fresh ginger and garlic. it marinated all day and then i made sauce with the leftover marinade. deelish. also jambaloney's favourite shish-kebabs.

with the left-over pork i made a stirfry for dinner the next day. another delicious meal as jambaloney makes the best rice known to man! this rice is half and half jasmine and basmati. he adds a little almond oil and that is what makes the rice super deelish!

tomorrow night was supposed to be our besties 25th wedding anniversary party. their daughter called us at xmas time to invite us. then a few weeks ago at the valentine's dance, i am out smoking with  one half of my besties, the male half, and he says "so you guys will be at the party right?". and i say "what party". and he says "c'mon kymber. we know about the party". then the other half of the besties, the female one says "you guys better be coming to the party!". i tried again - "what party?" i asked. she said - "oh you know we know about the party. you guys better come! i already got your wine".

so i guess they have known all along - bahahahahah! their daughter managed to book their favourite band so it was gonna be a real hoot. but since we are expecting a blizzard on saturday, during the day and night, they have changed the party to tonight. it is snacks and sweets from 7-9 and then the dance starts. it will be a great time and i am sure our female besty will wear us out ragged. i dance with her to the more modern songs and jambaloney dances with her to the more 70ish songs. you should see them dancing to the long version of "paradise by the dashboard light". it's hysterical. they sing e-v-e-r-y single lyric to each other, pointing at each other and dancing. i should videotape them one day. they play that song at every dance and they dance to it every time!

at one dance, jambaloney was in the bathroom when that song came on. our besty banged on the bathroom door and then just went in and got him. all of the rest of us were killing ourselves laughing! he said he barely got zipped before she was dragging him on the floor - bahahahah!

so jam is in town getting fresh-made baguettes so i can make my smoked meat sandwiches that the men here love. i already have my "diabetes in a pan" dessert made and am just waiting for it to cool before adding dark and white chocolate drizzle to it. this stuff is deadly and i wouldn't touch it with a 10-ft pole but jambaloney and a few of our friends really enjoy it.

now it's time to go figure out what i'm wearing. it should be a real blast tonight and we are all looking forward to it.

hope you all will have a fantastic weekend. we'll be dying tomorrow so a blizzard isn't a bad thing. we'll climb on our chairs and watch some movies, moan and groan about how many times our besty made us dance, moan and groan about how sore we are and hopefully make a couple of chia frescas and some soup.

some days it's hard being us. bahahahahaahah!


  1. Better watch that smoking; it'll stunt your growth!

  2. Sounds like you have your weekend all planned. Enjoy :) Life is for living, after all.

    P.S. I hate you - s'not fair, I also want some snow...

  3. Love dancing & hate/love the soreness the next day. Reminds me how many muscles don't get used on a regular basis. Have fun at the party!

  4. Sweet Kymber,

    What's better than good food, friends, dancing, and a 25th Anniversary? Bed the next day....LOL
    Have fun, don't do anything I wouldn't do :P:P
    Hugs and love to you both.

  5. Even with the snow it looks lovely! I am craving shishkabobs now~~ I think I'll plan them for beginning of next week!!
    You crack me up as usual...
    Your sunny NM short friend

  6. I suspect your more sore from the laughing than the dancing :)! Have fun shaking those tail feathers!!
