Kluane Cooking Club

Or, in private circles, referred to as the KKK (Kluane Kooking Klub.)

(Racism is wrong, ok readers? In order for you to be allowed to be a smartass and refer to your club teasingly as a supremacist organization, you must have at least one ethnic other in the midst. In our case, that is me.)

(Plus, I'm pretty sure I was the one that first started calling us the KKK. I like alliteration.)

This post will show you how we got through the Cold Butt of Winter this time around. Given that this was my second year up here, the novelty of the inaugural first October snow, first minus thirty cold snap, first freezing of eyelashes upon leaving the house... it had worn off. 

Our good friend Laura came up with starting a supper club this Winter that would go beyond your typical potluck. We've got a bunch of foodies in our circle up here. We've also got a bunch of enthusiastic folks that realllllllly like to dress up. So, she harnessed our restless energy and proposed a monthly event where a couple would host a themed dinner, provide the main entree, the ambience and set the stage in terms of attire. The other couples would bring appies, sides and desserts that fit the food theme, and all would be well.

What follows will be our antics from the last few months...

So this is the post wherein I get a bit honest. 

I've been alluding to the fact that we had a pretty tough Winter-- though only those closest to us or who live in our town would know why. It wasn't really that I was tip-toeing around the subject. It is just in my nature to hold my privacy as sacred; to be cryptic on a public forum such as this.

A Belated Week in Pictures

I have all these ideas in my head of posts and I often wander around exclaiming: I should show them pictures of this! I should write about this!

And then Monday to Friday happens, the kids get all of me, my fiancé (I was told this past weekend that I can't refer to him as my boyfriend anymore; we're officially up a relationship-level!) gets the better part of my evenings, my thousand dollar mattress gets the rest.

So I have two long posts to share with you, full of images and words and punctuation, posts that will illustrate exactly what fun things we do to fill up our time around here..........

But they don't exist yet.

So this little post on 'A Week in Pictures' will have to suffice--- even if it took place two weeks ago.
