Funeral Potatoes, record organization, playing bike mechanic…

So, I veganazied Funeral Potatoes the other night. Funeral Potatoes is a Mormon casserole that I guess they make for funerals. My friend Mox taught me out to make them but they are dairy overload lots of sour cream, cheese, milk and cream of mushroom soup. ugh. Not to mention the corn flakes on top which just sort of makes casseroles creepy.

I got to portabella mushroom soup, a half tub of better than cream cheese, a red onion, some vegan mozzerella and a ton of frozen hashbrowns. I get a certain perverse pleasure in veganizing things sometimes. It didn’t taste the greatest and let’s be honest? How can you really photograph a casserole and make it look awesome? But it was edible and filling.

hooray for casseroles.... and stuff.

hooray for casseroles.... and stuff.no, really horray for casseroles and stuff

Paul and I reorganized our records to fit into our EXPEDIT (the best record organizer ever!) Our records were getting out of hand with random stacks around the room left over from full moon nights and spontaneous DJ parties. We too the desk that the record player used to sit on upstairs so that Paul has something to put his new laptop on. Well, the desk sat in the middle of our dining room for awhile but we finally got it sorted. I like how it is now. It makes every thing seem closer to the ground. We also hooked Paul’s old computer up to a monitor so we have a computer that we can play the rest of the itunes network on. That’s pretty fun.

hooray for expedit!

Today I went over to spend some time with my sister. I stopped by the Flavour Spot and got two veggie sausage and maple waffels.  We did some catching up, I helped her in her garden and then we sawed off her handlebars. Good times! At one point she said “hey, will you twitter that we are playing bike mechanic just like we used to 20 years ago?” And it’s true! We totally used to play bike mechanic!

Then we went and got burritos! I’m still recovering from burrito coma. I replanted some of my seeds that I think didn’t make it through the massive rains we had while I was in Seattle a few weeks ago. I’m also compiling a mental list of things  I can have my sister do in my yard tomorrow when she comes over. There is lots of weeding and planting nasturtiums in my porch planter boxes.

Also, one of our longest housemates is moving onto more scholarly pursuits and housing so we are going to have an open room in our house come May. maybe you know somebody who is interested?

Paul has just figured out how Rugby works and is watching some match on his computer. He’s strangely fascinated by it. I’m going to go and see what the deal is.
