The doting wife of a dental student...

Yesterday was an awful day to be outside. Luckily it was Saturday, I didn't have to be anywhere, and Ben and I stayed holed up all day. He made me caramel buns for breakfast and he also made a delicious dinner. We spent the evening on the couch; he studied while I flipped through magazines and flipped between "White Christmas" and "Cupcake Wars." I don't know how the topic came up, but Ben wanted a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Being the loving wife I am, I hopped right up, found a recipe, and made one for him (and me too of course). What a lucky guy...

We went to Ben's Dental School Christmas party last night at the Embassy Suites downtown Lincoln. After eating and before the entertainment, we walked around the lobby area for a little bit. The multiple Christmas trees they decorated were classy. Ben's eyes caught their regular lighting, though--so he shouldn't have been surprised (or embarrassed) when I whipped out my camera.

Let's try this again

So the last roast I made was a little too dry. This time I used cream of mushroom soup, which made for a nice gravy. Plus, I had the day off, so the meat didn't cook quite as long. I thought we had potatoes at home. Apparently someone threw them out because they had too many eyes growing--so I made Parmesan couscous.
