(I am being crazy today-two posts! Be sure not to miss the other one) This year is a Leap Year and today, February 29th, is a Leap Day. It’s such an odd occurrence that I felt like I had to look it up and see what this thing was really all about. It’s funny how… Continue reading Extra day, Extra Post!
Variety is the spice of life, they say. Or is it? I just finished reading an article about the Caveman (Paleo) and the Mediterranean Diets. This, apparently, has become the new celebrity smack-down in the culinary world. Carbs are so 12 seconds ago, as are Atkins and a bevy of other eating “lifestyles”. Bacon has… Continue reading This, That or The Other
Everyone loves a sure thing. As much as some people say they love change, we all love the comforts of the familiar. That’s why you reach for the same coffee mug when you have a cabinet filled-to-overflowing with them, why you hunker down to your Grandma’s chicken soup when you are feeling ill or even… Continue reading Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winna!
Good morning! Last night I hunkered down and watched Hollywood’s most glamorous night. The Oscars-the pinnacle of a year’s worth of acting and filmmaking. All of the gowns (really? she wore THAT?)! The jewels! The pretty and very-tweaked-and-tucked people! And I did it in the most un-glamorous way possible. Who are YOU wearing? they asked….I… Continue reading And the Award should go to…
The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper. -Eden Phillpotts There was a substitute teacher when I was in high school who, as I think about it now, was really a crummy substitute teacher. He didn’t even attempt to take control of the class or teach anything that the… Continue reading Happy Accidents
Yes, great food can frost your day. A pair of jeans right out of the wash THAT FIT (sans Cirque de Soleil contortions) can also frost your day. A perfect cup of coffee (see yesterday’s post) can frost your day, too. But, I have to say, laughter takes top ranking as far as I am… Continue reading Your Seat in the Sky Awaits
Since I’ve been off for a few days, today is like a Monday to me. And what jumpstarts our Mondays like a good cup of Joe. Java. Cafe. Venti. Grande. With foam. Without. A dash of Madagascar cinnamon, anyone (a great request from Niles on Frasier)? As my friends and coffee-mates can attest to, I… Continue reading Venti Sin, please
Hi Everyone! Do not fear, I have not hit blog-brain and am running for the hills. I’m going to be taking a breather for a few days with some family members, but I will be returning with more posts on Wednesday. Maybe my little hiatus will result in some new food for thought for this… Continue reading Breather
My dear husband just announced that he will be making breakfast today. AND that he’s happy to run to the store to get some extras that we need. I tell you, if there’s one thing that I love, it’s when someone makes me breakfast. And runs to the store. There is a God. So, in the… Continue reading Sweet Weekends
When I have heard the words “lentil soup” in the past, only one word came to mind and that was “sludge”. Awful olivey-green-murky-brown-water sludge with some ominous lentils swimming around….in a bowl. Passed off as soup. Mind you, I love soup. Creamy soups, brothy soups, veggies, meats, noodles. Bring it on. It’s only pea soup… Continue reading Lentil Me Your Ears
