Happy Halloween!

What better way to celebrate than with a big co-ed bachelor party for Cheesefries' best friend and soon-to-be groom in St Louis' Central West End?  We had rooms at the Chase and a gaggle of friends to drink and carouse with.  We saw a lot of Snookis, a lot more Chilean miners (even a "sexy" miner), and even a very slutty skunk.

Joe Dirt and Chunk.


Double Dare.

Ruh roh.  There's no passing out in baseball!

Bud Light and Golden Wheat

Drink up!

Happy Halloween from Mr and Mrs Cheesefries!

Love is...

When he saves you the last three of his favorite candy, just because he know you like to sneak the pink ones.

Lately Tucker Bear has been the whiniest dog ever in the evenings.  He's a vocal little guy to begin with, but for the last week, he's developed the habit of sitting just out of reach and cryyyyyyyyyyyying.  We can temporarily appease him with rawhides smeared with peanut butter or trips outside to the backyard, but the quiet doesn't last long.  Until tonight - I figured it out.

Schmuckers just wanted to be in my lap.  And then he did the full body "tuckered out" flop that earned him his name as a baby-dog.

Peace has commenced.

Cake Mix Cookies

For as long as I have known my friend, Beth, we have called her Bones.  And for as long as we have called her Bones, she has been baking super yummy cookies.  She has a few specialties, in fact, but my personal favorite are these cookies.  I won't go so far as to say we invite her to parties in hopes that she'll bring them, but it certainly doesn't hurt her chances.  Just kidding, Bonesy .... we invite you for the salsa dip, of course. :)

Cake Mix Cookies
1 box cake mix (any variety, I prefer yellow)
2 eggs
1/2 C vegetable oil
Chocolate chunks (or nuts, raisins, coconut, candy, or anything else you like inside a cookie)

    Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Using a teaspoon, drop spoonfuls of batter on an un-greased cookie sheet, two inches apart.  Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

    Better double these, they go fast.

    Well, one month and a day.

    Love you, Kenny!
