Lunner was delicious if I do say so myself. :D
I tried one of the Jennie O oven ready turkeys this year and it turned out amazing, everyone raved about it. Everything else, ok except the dressing & giblet gravy, I made myself and if I do say so myself I did good.
I need my nap now. Courtney and Abner are still here and Eric and Abner are playing x-box, while mom and Mike went out to see some of his family that lives here in town. Emily is patiently waiting her turn to play the kung fu panda game after the boys are done.
Its been a really good day.
My co-worker Natalie, brought this today for us to snack on and its so good. I'm so making it tomorrow for a snack or maybe even tonight
Just leave a comment and you are entered, nice and easy.
The book is Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld and has lots of healthy simple recipes that include vegetable purees.
I have liked the copy I have and have made quite a few recipes in it that went over well with the entire family.
So just let me know.
OH YEAH I'LL DRAW THE WINNER THIS COMING WEDNESDAY!!
When getting toothpaste on your hands make sure to wash it all off thoroughly before attempting to put contacts in your eyes because it will burn badly and make you scream like a little girl and you won't be able to get the contact out of your eye fast enough.
You are welcome.
Eric and I took Emily to the county fair and we walked all over that place and she rode tons of rides. It really wore me out!
But I had funnel cake so that makes up for all the walking.
one of the best songs ever
if you pass this post without listening to the song you are just hurting yourself
The red felt is the little cheapy kind you find at wal-mart craft section in squares but the yellow part is the nice felt I bought at a fabric store, it was a little more but a nicer quality. Not the best but I thought it was kind of cute and Emi loved it. and she kept it in her hair all day.
How do some little kids come home at the end of the school day looking perfect? Neither of my ever have, they come home looking like they have played and played all day long with wild hair!
Here is my new hair. I haven't colored it yet again but if you click on the picture and look at it larger you can see the lighter streaks are the lavender purple streaks now. It may be hard to see though but I promise its there. Its a little shorter than last time but the lady didn't have a choice since the other guy butcherd it. I really like it.
My chin is broke out so bad that I'm seriously considering buying proactive for my face.
I'm so damn relieved right now I can't even tell you.
Thinking of going to a few thrift stores today but not sure I want to get out in the rain with the bad drivers. If I stay here though I'm pretty sure a nap will be in store for me because napping while its raining is wonderful.
I made Emily a cute little hair barrette last night and did the sewing by hand. I practiced the blanket stitch and I think I have it down now. It doesn't look perfect but its cute and Emily loved it when she saw it this morning so I fixed her hair with it. I made it with yellow and red felt and a button so it looks like a little flower. I'm going to try and make some more today or tonight.
Time: About 1 hour, plus 4 1/2 hours' resting
3 cups bread flour
1 ( 1/4 -ounce) packet instant yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Oil as needed
Combine flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups water and stir until blended; dough will be shaggy. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let dough rest about 4 hours at warm room temperature, about 70 degrees.
Lightly oil a work surface and place dough on it; fold it over on itself once or twice. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest 30 minutes more.
At least a half-hour before dough is ready, heat oven to 450 degrees. Put a 6- to 8-quart heavy covered pot (cast iron, enamel, Pyrex or ceramic) in oven as it heats. When dough is ready, carefully remove pot from oven. Slide your hand under dough and put it into pot, seam side up. Shake pan once or twice if dough is unevenly distributed; it will straighten out as it bakes.
Cover with lid and bake 30 minutes, then remove lid and bake another 15 to 30 minutes, until loaf is beautifully browned. Cool on a rack.

- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 5 teaspoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground coriander
- 1 cup half-and-half
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 jalapeño chile, seeded and diced
- 1 deep-dish frozen pie crust, thawed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Purée 1 cup corn kernels in a food processor. Add eggs, onion, flour, sugar, salt and coriander. Blend until onion is finely chopped. Add half-and-half and butter; process just until blended. Transfer to a large bowl.

- 1 quart heavy cream
- 6 ears corn, uncooked
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1/2 pound pancetta, diced
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 2 cups diced fresh tomatoes or crushed canned tomatoes
- 2 quarts corn stock or chicken stock
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce
- 1 bunch fresh basil
- Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 bunch fresh basil
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, reduce the cream by half, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Remove from heat and set aside.
Using a box grater, scrape corn kernels from the cobs until most of the pulp is removed. Reserve the cobs.
To make the stock, fill a large pot with 2 quarts water and the cobs. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, to a soup pot add oil and melt butter over high heat. When butter sizzles, add the pancetta to render the fat; stir frequently and don't overcrisp. Stir in the onion and sweat until translucent. Add garlic and sauté briefly before adding corn. Stir for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes with juice and cook for 5 minutes. Pour in the corn stock and cream. Simmer and season with Worcestershire, Tabasco, salt and pepper. Add basil and steep for 5 minutes. Remove basil with a slotted spoon. Ladle soup into 6 soup bowls and serve hot.
Makes 6 servings.

I like how much they pay. :D
Since I was finally old enough to drive I used to love to drive to new places that were close by. Going in to the Big City, Houston, was always fun for me since we only live 30 minutes away or to Galveston since it was only about 30 minutes the other way, we are right in the middle. So like I said I loved driving to new places I would hear about that were close by. And I had my cool 69 camaro that I adored to do that in.
I remember one time Dacia, Billy, and myself decided to drive to Galveston one day because we had heard about the old mans face on the side of the building story (rock I actually googled for "old man on side of building + galveston, tx" and it was actually the first image popped up!! How cool is that? )))) Anyway.
So we go to Galveston and the building is UTMB's buldings to see this for ourselves. We actually didn't tell our parents where we were going because my mom would have lost her mind and Dacia never really told her parents where she was going and Billy was just always with me at that time since he couldn't drive yet. So off we went on an adventure!
We finally arrive on the back side of the island to where we knew the buildings were and found a place to park my car. At that time, probably 86/87 there was a lot of construction going on and there was a fence around it but it was pretty much useless with it leaning/holes in it that were just able to walk in. So the three of us walked in strutting our stuff thinking how cool we were to be there when we see/hear a big, black vicious looking doberman is coming right at us. Not sure we heard him or saw him first all we knew was that we had to get the hell out of there before we were eaten by the dog. We get back to our car but by then the dog had lost interest in us so we waited a little bit and tried again since he wasn't anywhere in site.
We got back in and walked to the back of the building where the face was supposed to be and look up and there it is, as big as could be. I wish at the time I would thought to taken a picture but I didn't think of it then. The story we had always heard about "The Face" in Galveston was that of an old man who's property was taken from him to build the buildings for the hospital and it all ended up just being taken from him and he died shortly after that and had swore he would never leave his land, thus the picture on the building. Hey, we were teenagers so we didn't know better and its a better story than the one listed in the link above right? heh.
So the three of stood there for a few minutes, went alright well that was so now what do you want to do? And walked off.
I was pretty neat though and we can say we saw it. :D
But I like doing stuff like that. For prom we went on tours of the old homes Galveston and got to hear their stories. Courtney and I would go on adventures all the time. She likes to look through antique shops, funky stores, thrift stores like myself so we still do that. I like to find random festivals to stop at, large craft shows, farmers markets and just stop to see whats going on. We have taken random beach trips after work on some summer nights just to go enjoy the early evening ocean breezes. Or have driven in to Houston when I hear about specialty grocery stores that have all kinds of samples of food I had always wanted to try. New restaurants since we all love food so much. The wall of water in Houston. Carriage rides on the Galveston Strand or in downtown Houston on the night of prom.
Just all kinds of fun stuff I like to do and I'm sure I didn't even get even a page filled in up in the book I could write of all the fun stuff I like to do.
So tonight is a more boring adventure maybe, myself, the girls and Abner may be driving to Bedias, Texas to drop Courtney's car off at dad's tonight and then driving back. But along the way there is plenty of beautiful scenery and interesting things to look that it will be fun.
I'm so glad both girls like to go on adventures with me because its more fun with them
As much as I like to change purses around this would be ideal, and I have big purses so it would work great.
Speaking of bags, I bought myself a large tote bag from Target today to keep all of my work papers/snacks/ work cup in because I keep forgetting it all either at home or in the car. I also need a little change purse to just switch over and throw in my work tote.
Isn't that pretty? I love the style more than the colors and I see this chair all the time at the antique stores. I would love to have one for the house sitting in a corner with a lamp next to it to read in. It looks so comfy.
I have the most tasty coffee recipe that dad's girlfriend made for bunco last week so here it is....
You will love it, trust me.
Not feeling the whole work thing today. Would have rather stayed home in bed being useless but this always happens during pms.
So I guess I'll finish filing now which is my number one hated office job of all time.
Thanks again Tabby!
