Opening Day at Busch

Today is a very exciting day.  It involves many red convertibles with special hall of famers dressed in bright red blazers.  Clydesdales circling a special stadium.  A sea of red.  Smiling faces and rounds of applause.  Peanuts.  Pretzels.


This year, the Cardinals Museum is opening in Ballpark Village, which is also very exciting.  (kind-of hoping it works out that I can visit Easter weekend)

I love this article so much that came out about Yadi during Spring Training:
Molina also wants to win for Cardinals fans. He made it a point to mention that when he cited the factors that motivate him to give his best ... and to be the best. And the fans were a reason he signed a five-year, $75 million contract that runs through 2017.Molina surely could have cashed in for more money by taking his name, and all-around game, to the free agent market.“Maybe, but you want to be at a place where you can be happy with your family,” Molina said. “And every time I play a game in St. Louis, I’m happy. The last 10 years have been truly amazing. The way the fans treat me, even when I was a young player, doing bad, they treated me right. I mean, just for that I decided to stay here.“For me it’s nothing better than being a Cardinal and being in that city. For me it’s as special as it can be. I am having fun there. I love the organization, the team that we have, and the effort they put in every year to try to win. The fans show up for every game, and give you all of the support you could ask for. I don’t think there’s any place like this.”

In other news, my new co-workers found out about my Cardinals obsession last week at the conference (apparently I can't keep my mouth shut for one week).  Lucky for me, they're all Sox fans.  When I said I am a Cardinals fan after they asked, they just said a relieved, "oh." Rather than the negative comments I have started receiving.  So that's nice. Especially considering, I am using my Cardinals mug at the office.

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…

Week Notes

The teenagers from Parkland are giving me so much hope.  So much hope.  I think this is the first time I've read a political news article and smiled since Nov. 8, 2016.

Is the Tide commercial making anyone else cry during the Olympics?

As someone who's not generally a TV fan, how is it possible for me to get so involved, so quickly, in every sport?  Which by the way I know nothing about.

Anyone ever try Door Dash.  I'm not big on delivery services in general, but after a bad experience with Grub Hub we gave Door Dash a try and we are fans.

When a friend recommends a happy hour place, you go.  So Thursday morning a friend told me about Mangia Italiano.  Thursday happy hour Mike & I were there.


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…
