I am reading lots of cooking blogs recently and I've decided to start making one new recipe a week. Last week I saw this recipe for empanadas and I was already going to make my favorite Cuban dish that night, so I substituted the recipes meat with my yummy picadillo meat and made some pretty good empanadas! The dough was cream cheese based, need I say more? Check it out!

Divine Intervention

Tuesday night we went out to dinner with some friends. We had looked up a place called Texas BBQ on the Zagat website. It had a score over 20 so we thought that we couldn't be bad. We were wrong. We did a drive by and saw that no one was in the parking lot (first sign) and then noticed that the place was rated a C. NASTY!

We were in the ghetto and decided to stop and eat at the first place where it didn't look like we would get shot.

Our friend Matt later that night said that it was divine intervention because the food we ended up with was so much better than it would've been at Texas BBQ.

Okay, as you all know we named our baby Andrew. I am very happy with the name and I think it fits him. There are two nick names for someone named Andrew (Andy and Drew). When he was born we didn't care what he was called but I've since changed my mind. I've tried calling him Andy and I didn't like it, I've heard other people call him Andy and I wasn't a fan. It's not the name that I don't like but it's calling him that name that I don't like. Am I making sense? After getting to know him for the last month I have come to the conclusion that he is a Drew. So, the big news flash is that we have decided that he should be called Andrew or Drew. Please, no more Andy!

In other Andrew news:

He stayed home with daddy yesterday while I went back to work :( But I am happy to report that he was a very good boy! It was the first time he was given the bottle and he took it like a champ! Now Nick and I can actually think about going on a date alone!

Halloween Pictures! (Alyssa)

A big thanks to Samuel for letting us use his costume! After I put Drew in this I called Nick in the room and I thought he was going to pee his pants he was laughing so hard!

Happy Election Day!

I know I may sound weird but I love to vote! I enjoy the whole political process and I love that I live in a country where my voice matters. Whenever election day comes around I am reminded of how lucky I was to be born into this free country. I am so thankful that my mom and grandma sacrificed so much and came here to be free. I am thankful for the soldiers that have died and that are fighting for us to keep that same freedom right now. I hope that everyone goes out today and exercises their right to vote and be a part of this wonderful process. No matter what the turn out of the election today we still live in the greatest country on earth and should all feel very grateful.
