'Tis the season!!

Last week we spent lots of time in the city visiting the Kurz-Cosgrove family while they vacationed in San Francisco. We ate at lots of yummy restaurants and went on some beautiful hikes. As you can see the weather was crisp and clear (thats the view of downtown SF from our BART station in Oakland)

View of the Pacific Ocean from the Marin Headlands on Thanksgiving. What a great way to walk off the first round of the buffet. We had an early feast at the Cliff House restaurant. The views were absolutely breathtaking. It was definitely a California Turkey Day watching surfers while we ate our stuffing and mashed potatoes (and french toast)
We finished off the afternoon with a spectacular west coast sunset and then ate some more of course....

This week I was chosen for jury duty. The bad news is I cant go to work (aka no paycheck), the good news is I get to do my civic duty and be home early enough to make yummy dinners. Tonight we had oatmeal stout (homebrew!!) braised short ribs with horseradish mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts.

Joe didn't like any of it as you can tell...

Since the ribs spent 3 hours in the oven and Joe got held up at work, I blasted Christmas music and got crafty :) Thus our Christmas tree was born. Its made out of a cardboard box and decorated with cut up toilet paper rolls.
