With gerg in recovery mode, we've been spending a lot of time "taking it easy" per his doctor's orders.

So we've been watching movies (Little Miss Sunshine, Spirited Away, Fearless Freaks), playing on the computer, and eating in.

Last night I made a carmelized onion and gorgonzola fritatta for dinner. gerg's hunger hasn't been excellent, and I know the smell of sauteed onions whets his appetite. The fritatta was tasty.

Then came dessert!!

My favorite part was dessert: I'm calling it the Martha's Zin Love. First, I baked some Sweet Martha's oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies (you can buy the cookie dough at Lund's), topped the warm cookies with Dark Chocolate Zin ice cream from Izzy's, swirled some Potion #9 over the top from Legacy Chocolates, and sprinkled just a bit of chopped peanuts, butterscotch chips and flaked coconut over the top.

While we were licking our plates clean, I noted that Martha's Zin Love combines items from three great sweet-stations in the Twin Cities.

The house is relatively clean, we're caught up on mail, and gerg is recovering. That's progress from last week.

Looking forward to a visit from the Flanagans this weekend and the first day of the Winter Carnival! I hope to get out on Saturday catch some of the ice carving action.
