This and that and a bit o pimping

Well, hubby turned 40 monday! Wow, a new numbers bracket...this officially makes him 2 years older than i am. He always argues that he's only a year but there is clearly a 2 year digit between years we were born and for almost 6 months of the year he is 2 years HAH!

Work has been eh. Not busy but still slightly steady enough to make some money but and still have some time off to get holiday stuff done. Had a late no show last night though. Drive me crazy when they do not even take the time to call...just rude!

Been making a lot of soap and it has been selling well at the spa. Fun! What is funny is hubby and daughter have as much fun seeing how the designs or soaps turn out as i do. (so cute!)

My Ideas

I do not cook with too many real recipe's. But for sweet potato we use it more than regular potato.

1. slice potato as if it were french fry style. layer with onion and mushroom, sprinkle with salt, pepper,paprika, garlic (really any of your favorites) drizzle with balsamic and olive oil and wrap in foil. Grill or bake till tender....yum!

2. we also use the turkey chopped, leftover veggies, cranberries and mix into the leftover gravy. mash leftover sweet potato (and reg potato if left) and top. Sprinkle with cheese and stuffing if desired and bake. Turkey day leftovers shephards pie.

3. chopped turkey bite size, celery, onion , chopped pecan and chopped cranberries.Mix with salt, pepper, tarragon and mayo...makes the best sandwiches!

Pimp: Got ideas for cranberries or sweet potato?

Halloween Spooks!

Hi there...rain rain rain! Daughter and her boyfriend were a bit nervous about driving in today. That and the fact that the road heading home is closed at the moment and they do not know for sure how long it will be closd for due to natural gas line repairs and the rain... they will make it taking it easy. (actually the rain has let up a bit for their drive, nervous mom i know!!)

Did ya vote??

K, i know i am not alone but i am SO done with the election. The political slander of commercials from all candidates for both local and presidential is just disgusting and i am done with it. If these candidates pooled the money they waste on these commercials, just think of the good that could be done with it! Lol, K off my soapbox now.

Halloween was good but...where the heck were the trick or treaters?? Hubby bought so much candy and even with passing out 3 pieces per person we have 4 gallon sized bags in the freezer leftover. Oh well, the ones that showed up were having fun. Will try to get up pics later of daughter and her friends.


Not only is there a contest but this is a great site! If you knit and are ever curious about all the books out there check this site out. It will help you decide if the book is worth your time, has what you are looking for, etc....

and a knitiversary of sorts:
be sure to check the blog out, very nice and personable!
