We lost.

Last night the Cardinals lost.  We are now down 3-1 in the series and it seems almost impossible that we will advance to the World Series.  Especially since their pitcher tonight killed us in Game 1.  Maybe they figured him out?  I have no idea.  We've been so hot and cold all season, I just wish we could be super hot right now, which we will need to be if we want to advance.

While, yes, we did lose, but I had a great time at the Cardinals bar.

*Lovely group of people.

*It's so nice/strange when my friend, Molly, introduces me to her St. Louis friends she says I'm from Ste. Gen.  Which I am.  But no one's ever heard of it.  These people have!
Here's how I usually introduce myself:
I'm from Missouri.  If they ask.
It's a small town called Ste. Genevieve sort-of close to St. Louis.  blank stares

*one of the girls claims she is an inexperienced Cardinals fan.  She is definitely a fan!  She's just learning the ins and outs.  After I corrected things she said a few times (maybe that was rude).  She just hit me up with questions & by the end of the game we were besties.

*i love being able to sit around and talk baseball without making sure I don't dive in to deep, in order to avoid boring whomever I'm talking with.  Typically I get on my baseball talk and slowly watch the eyes' of the person I'm talking with glaze over.  Not in this crowd!  They like the info and will throw some back at me.

*Such a good group of people.
One guy came in the room and asked why we can't turn on the Blackhawks game.  Everyone booed.  Then one guy in our group yelled, "There are a hundred bars with the blackhawks game on."  True.  That was the only one with the Cardinals game on all TVs and the speakers.

*They played a lot of Nelly ;)

*One of the girls dislikes the Giants so much.  Honestly, I don't have anything against them.  I dislike the Dodgers very, very much so there are some ulterior motives to beating them.  With the giants, I just really want to beat them.

*They had Schlafly Pumpkin Ale!!!!  One of the group bought a round and it was SO good!  We all cheersed and cheered.  
I'm hoping to hit up the Schlafly brewery tour Sunday after the marathon.
*My old co-worker friend is a big Giants fan and she usually shit talks the Cardinals during the game.  Then after the game, when, yes, the Giants won.  She sends the below and it made me feel better

You bet tonight I will be wearing all the Cardinals things possible and cheering for my team :)

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'…
