Hi Everyone!

It’s the day after Thanksgiving. How do you feel?

  • Do you feel like you can’t move fast?
  • jpg_heart-ready-for-battle
  • Do you feel like you are ready to rock n’ roll?
  • Do you feel like walking around the mall? Just walk, not shopping.
  • If you went to the mall, did you have to walk 3 miles from where you parked?See the source image
  • After walking around the mall, doing some window shopping, were you hungry?
  • Whatever you are going today, make sure you take advantage of everything going on around you.

    • People laughing
    • Smells of delicious foods in the court
    • Meeting friends as you are walking around
    • Seeing the holidays through children eyes. Their expressions make you feel like a kid again.

Hello Culinary Herbs!

vintage gardenHi Everyone!

If you love to cook, I’m sure you use specific herbs for each of your recipes.

Spaghetti, meatballs, lasagna, pasta fagioli. What would you use?

How about thyme sprigs, rosemary sprigs, bay leaf.
rosemary-sprigSprigs you say? Yes “sprigs”. You toss in the sprigs, once they cook down, remove the “sprigs”.
Delicious!

Daily Prompt: Grainy

wind-chimesGrainy

Hi Everyone!

Grainy to me is when someone offers you a treat they just took out of the oven, and…..

  • NINS: Want to try my new treats? They just came out of the oven,
  • png_Cookie-vector-clip-art-imageME: Let me try one, they smell delicious! Took one bite and thought I was eating bird food, it was so grainy.
  • NINS: Would you like something to drink with it?
  • ME: As I’m trying to get my bite to one side of my mouth to speak. Yes! Yes! Yes! Coffee, tea, milk, what ever is close to me.tea cup pot
  • NINS: So how do you like them?
  • ME: Just give me a moment.
  • ME: My moment is over and what do I say????
  • NINS: Come on! Come on! You drank about a quart of ice tea.
  • Gourmet-Dog-BiscuitsME: Well not bad at first. Then something “grainy” started growing in my mouth.
  • NINS: Really! Are you sure it’s just not you?
  • ME: Did you try one? If not, I suggest you try one before passing anymore out.
  • NINS: You are always so critical of what I bake. Here goes taking a bite.
  • ME: Then all of a sudden a ton of grains came flying out of NINS mouth. She took a drink of my ice tea, (good thing she made a gallon of it), tried to talk and she couldn’t. I ran to get her more ice tea and she was finally able to say something.
  • jpg_bird_01_canaryNINS: Thank you for saving my life and saving me from embarrassment if I passed them out at my party. I could just see all this “grainy” stuff flying through the air.
