An Extended Zesty-In Law Party

by zesty on December 22, 2009 · 7 comments

Happy Monday Tuesday!  It looks like my post for Monday didn’t get published due to a word press issue and I just found out this morning.  So sorry about that…

Just a little recap on the move in date.  We are not fully moved in to the new house as of yet as we encountered a couple of hiccups on Friday.  As you know we have been storing our belongings in a 54 foot trailer for the last 6 months.  It seems to be the case that the trailer either leaked or allowed moisture to form due to the combination of warm and cold temperatures which caused a lot of our belongs to have mildew/mold on them.

Our furniture, beds and some other pieces seem to be the worst along with some boxes of books etc so we are getting Chem Dry in tomorrow morning to attempt to “fix” the issues.  Chem dry is a local company that uses all natural products to get rid of nasty odors and “mold/mildew”.  We will know more tomorrow on how things progress.

If things go well – I hope we can move in on Wednesday night.  We were able to go to a tree farm and pick out the tree yesterday and try to keep our spirits up.  Another event to keep our spirits up was our annual – extended gift opening celebration (which means a tonne of food) and some Christmas presents.  I snapped a lot of pictures just not sure how many turned out.  I will share some with you in a second.

There were a lot of amazing dishes – a few of which I may go into detail later in the week.

Well I am off work today to go back to the house and continue to unpack and prep the house.  The painter is coming in today to paint the railing and do a few final touch ups around the house.  Have a great Tuesday and I will update you tomorrow.  3 Days until Christmas – Can you believe it?

Take care

My interest is definitely piqued… I’d love to read more about some of these dishes! The salad with strawberries, goat cheese (?) and pecans looks especially delicious, as does what I assume is bread pudding.

Happy Holidays!

@Lauren – You are correct with all your assumptions! And yes they were all delicious. You will get a closer look at the bread pudding later this week.

Oh, that sucks about your storage trailer Zesty! I can only imagine how frustrating that would be, especially so close to Christmas. I’m sure you just want to move all your stuff in, get it set up, and have a relaxing Christmas Day in your new house. Hope it all works out!
