Ever consider what pets must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul – chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we’re the greatest hunters on earth! ~~Anne Tyler


New additions…

May 22, 2011

Two new additions to my kitchen:

I can’t believe it took me so long to purchase a food processor!  I’ve been making my own almond meal and saving lots of $$.  🙂

The blender is just a replacement to a smoothie maker that kicked the bucket.  But this one (less than $20 at Wally World) has more power!

Chicken Legs…

May 20, 2011

My 4-year old and I recently bought our first rotisserie chicken from Costco.  The car smelled divine, the entire ride home.  All I could think about was eating that chicken; little did I know my daughter was having the same thoughts.  As soon as we walked through our door, my daughter asked, “When can we eat?  I’m starving for some of that chicken!”  I laughed and we both held our breaths as we opened the plastic lid.  To say we tore into the chicken would be an understatement.  🙂

The chicken was beyond tender.  My daughter grabbed one of the legs and the soft meat just pulled away from the bone.  After her first bite, with a dreamy look in her eyes, “Mama, it melts in my mouth like butter!”

We finished off both legs and thighs, and as I was closing the lid, to pop the rest in the fridge, I heard my little one utter, “I wish chickens had more legs!”

Dandelion Craft…

May 11, 2011

This is an arts & crafts resource from The Mailbox, a really awesome site for fun activities!


“These dandelion look-alikes confirm that spring has sprung!

To begin, cut three stems and several leaves from green paper.

Glue the cutouts to a 9” x 12” sheet of dark blue construction paper.

Next, glue a narrow strip of fringed, green paper to the lower edge of the project to resemble grass.

To make the fluffy dandelion heads, dot a circle of glue at the top of each stem; then pull tiny tufts from a cotton ball and press them into the glue.

If desired, glue a few tufts blowing in the breeze.”

That wonderful, magical animal…

Lisa Simpson:  “I’m going to become a vegetarian.”

Homer Simpson:  “Does that mean you’re not going to eat any pork?”

Lisa:  “Yes.”

Homer:  “Bacon?”

Lisa: “Yes, Dad.”

Homer:  “Ham?”

Lisa:  “Dad, all those meats come from the same animal.”

Homer:  “Right Lisa, some wonderful, magical animal!”

My thoughts exactly, Homer!  🙂
