I think the cold meds are getting to me. I was in the kitchen this week making Pork Wellington for Earl’s belated Valentine’s dinner when I channeled Beyoncé. If you don’t know who Beyoncé is she is a popular pop/R&B singer. She is tall, amazingly beautiful and African American. She can shake her body in
Did you ever watch the Jetsons as a kid (or adult)? It was a fascinating cartoon about life in the future. (Okay, maybe fascinating is stretching it but it truly was awesome Saturday morning entertainment when it was in syndication during the 1970’s.) Just in case you lived in a cave or had a mom who
I think I told you once that I worked as a bench chemist in a small lab in Illinois. (I do have my degree so don’t try this at home!) A lot of my time was spent starting a reaction in the morning and then waiting for the right moments to add more ingredients chemicals.
Like most people, I have goals. Some of them are simple…like clean the bathroom closet. Some of them are a bit more complex…like take a vacation in Italy. Some of my goals involve my husband. (Um, I’m not going to share that one!) Some of them are completely independent of him…like taking particular cooking classes
Do you ever have a thought in your head that is REALLY random? I mean, there is nooooo reason whatsoever for this thought, it just pops in your head. This thought is so random that you spend countless minutes, maybe even hours, thinking about this particular topic. Yankee Doodle. Yep, that was my thought the other
I treat holidays like “opposite days.” Most people get the urge to jump in the kitchen during the holidays. They cook more dinners than they would normally and they bake cookies like a Keebler Elf. (Is it politically correct to still call them elves?) Me, on the other hand, gets really lazy about cooking. I
Meatballs. Did you ever see that movie from 1979? I wasn’t feeling well the other day and it was on one of the “classic” movie channels. (I always feel old when movies I grew up with end up on the classic channels.) I couldn’t resist cuddling up in my woobie and watching the whole thing.
There is nothing more exciting in a small town than the opening of a new restaurant. (If you read the headlines on our front page you will realize the truth in that statement!) It can be anything from a small independent sandwich shop to a larger franchise coming to the area. If it involves new
For whatever reason, I’ve had a really hard time focusing my thoughts today. Actually, to say I’ve had thoughts is an exaggeration; my mind has been blank. I just feel so dull. Dull, you say? Yep, like I have no personality. Whoops, there I go again, living the life of a Brady Bunch character. (Cue
August is almost here and that means one thing to a lot of people….vacation. Fortunately for me, a lot of my friends consider coming to my house a vacation! (If you ever have seen my house, you would realize William Shatner couldn’t get them a great deal anywhere better so they had to come here.)
