American TV

American TV Is amazing.  I don’t care if people say it’s trashy or wrong.  I love it.  Having been in the UK for 4 months now I’m really missing Bravo, Food Network, Cooking, ABC, NBC, TLC, and Style.  The list could go on and on and on. I haven’t even watched OWN yet!

Well we have found the answer.  I’m actually sitting in my living room in London watching Live with Regis & Kelly right now.  How you ask…..

SLINGBOX!

We set it up on a TV in NJ and we watch it though our computer.  Now you’re probably thinking “but it’s a 5 hour different so you aren’t going to stay awake until 1am just to watch primetime TV”.  Well that’s where DVR comes in.

We are happy campers now!  American TV in our London flat…GENIUS!

Rachael Ray’s on…gotta go.

Scottso Does London

We had another visitor 2 weeks ago, Scott.

That’s him at the Crypt of St. Martin.

Anyway, back to our weekend. We did a lot in 4 days.

He showed up with presents for us!!

Velveeta for Jon and paydays for me!!

First we went to Jon’s favorite Chinese restaurant near Baker Street for dinner on Thursday.

Then we went to Jon’s favorite dim sum restaurant in Chinatown for lunch on Friday.

I’m not sure if Scott isn’t enjoying himself, hates the Christmas Crown Jon got him or I just caught him at a bad moment.

After lunch we checked out the fountain at Trafalgar Square.

 

On Saturday the boys went to an Arsenal game while I cooked and baked for the Ugly Christmas Sweater party were were going to Saturday night.

How ugly are our sweaters?!  Scott definitely had the ugliest one there!

On Sunday we walked around London a little more.

Stopping at Westminster Abbey.

And Buckingham Palace.

We got dinner at another one of Jon’s favorite Thai restaurants (do you see a theme happening?!) and then Scott headed back to NY on Monday morning.

Such a great weekend!  I hope you enjoyed it Scott!

Of course I made a couple of changes.  I hate zucchini so I didn’t use that ingredient.  Instead I added kidney beans and corn.

 

The Ingredients.

The final product.

Looking for a 3rd pumpkin recipe as I type.  Any suggestions?
