This week we headed to Boise to visit with my Uncle and his family. We went on a three-week excursion with him and his boys this summer when we drove cross-country, making stops along the way to visit Dovy’s father and grandmother. We loved visiting with them! We helped with some projects around their house – I tuned my second piano! (Dovy helped to repair it.) A lot of us contracted colds, though, them and us, so between that and a really bad snowstorm that made it impossible to drive back earlier in the week, we stayed until yesterday. We made a lot of cheesecake, went shopping, saw Megamind, and ate at a pizza joint. (I told Mark it wouldn’t be a “Mark-visit” without pizza!)
Aunt Angie had a lot cream cheese left in her fridge,
so we decided to eat it.
Here is the Marble Luxury.
Angie was hanging laundry.
I came out of the guest room to find every
kitchen chair with a piece of clothing and a funny
hanger attached to it.
This was Anjali’s endearing and adorable idea of
putting away the laundry.
This one I made for a party on New Year’s Eve.
However, Angie was so sick, the party was postponed.
Thus, more cheesecake for us!
This is a chocolate cheesecake, topped with a layer of chocolate,
another layer of caramel, and pecans (only on a quarter of it because
Dovy and I are nut-lovers but everyone else wasn’t a fan). More chocolate chips
and drizzled caramel and chocolate again – Turtle Cheesecake, aka El Diablo.
Mark and Dovy smoking their “smokies!”
Dovy is dressed in Mark’s clothes so they could do
some repair work on the house.
I told them they looked similar in Mark’s clothes.
