While in Baltimore, we went to my Dad's favorite place to watch football games, find a wide selection of great beer and delicious oysters is hands down, Nicks Seafood. They are located a few blocks away from my dads place which is awesome, and with great beer prices, how can you say no?

Notice the size of these beers - absolutely insane.

Prepping for Thanksgiving

After a 4 hour trip from Logan to Newark to BWI, I was excited when Dad said he wanted to get Bloody Marys this morning to start the thanksgiving prepping off right!

Bloody Marys - MD Style - Gotta love the old bay:

Then we headed to Cross Street Market to pick up the Oysters. Dad got a little excited and ordered 50 oysters, aka 70 lbs to grill on thanksgiving:

So last night it was my turn to cook - sorry for the several weeks that I have missed. After being in the laundry mat and reading through a People's magazine, I found a great recipe for a vegetable lasagna by Julianne Moore. The picture looked good and the recipe looked easy, so why not?

It was extremely easy, delicious and I am definitely planning on making it again!

If you cant read the ingredients:
12 sheets of pasta
2 large zucchinni - chopped
1 bunch of asparagus - sliced
4 tbsp of olive oil
2 cups of shredded mozerella
1/2 cup of parmesean cheese
15 oz of ricotta cheese
1 egg
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1 clove garlic
6 cups marinara

Preheat the oven at 350
1. Heat olive oil and garlic in a skillet
2. Throw in all the veggies
3. Mix the ricotta, egg and Parmesan cheese
4. Line the bottom of a baking dish with marinara sauce
5. Add a layer of 3 uncooked sheets of pasta, ricotta cheese, and veggies - repeat again
6. Add another layer of pasta, marinara sauce and throw on all the mozzarella cheese
7. Bake in the oven for 45 min - and your done!

Jcrew - you have let me down

I purchased this sweater from jcrew the other day and wore it out on Saturday night.

When I got home, 5 of the beads had fallen off! I have to say, I did talk myself into buying this fabulous sweater because it was a little on the pricey side. I did take it back to jcrew and they graciously gave me a new one, but its inevitable - the beads will fall off again. So...what should I get with my $150?
