Good news, the basement supporting post project has begun!

On Sunday we had some friends over for dinner and after dessert we decided to go down in the basement and take turns with the hammer drill.  What??!!  Well what do you do on a Sunday night?

On the menu:

  • Chicken Cacciatore

  • Roasted orange veggies (butternut squash and sweet potatoes)

  • Salad with roasted beets, goat cheese and walnuts

  • Shortbread cookies with whipped cream

AND a trip to the basement to hammer through concrete.  Woo-hoo! Forget Wii dancing, you need a basement dinner party

Oh and did I mention that while the boys left to go and pick up some donated sheet rock, we girls decided to crank up the tunes and hang a disco ball in the kitchen.  Don't worry, it's still there. The sunlight hits it and it flashes all these dots all over the kitchen that really confuse my cat.  I do think everyone should have one.  My kitchen may be ugly, but hey, now it really rocks!!
