Just Cannot Say Good-Bye

Step 1: Admit Problem, Step 3: Problem Solved

Now, this is not to say I am a hoarder, au contrairemon frère! Hello, my name is Sarah and I cannot throw away magazines.  I simply cannot get rid of magazines with an article or two that I find useful, or can use later on (which then gets forgotten because it is in the stack with all the other magazines). Sigh – I must simply come to accept that I am a work in progress…which i just read a great article about a few months back, now where did I put it?

Just Another Manic Monday

Well boys and girls, we had a wonderful weekend and made it through Monday; it is all downhill goodness from here!

Here is the nitty gritty news from today:

Obama: Yes we can! Bribe poor countries into taking our prisoners (so this is why we get up and go to work and pay our taxes – just incase you were wondering)

Is nice yes?

Is nice yes?

Now Hiring: I love beer, you love beer, These Guys make beer and jobs too!

Good for what Ales ya!

Weekend Update:

Cinnamon Rolls and Road Trips

Ok, so my cinnamon rolls did not look exactly like the original recipe , but they sure were tasty enough to pass the Hubby Seal of I Want More. Dough was made from a buttermilk biscuit recipe – savory, not sweet, which was a nice change from the usual sweet doughs and a good balance from the filling. All in all, they were easy to make and a success, and will take many more times to prefect the pretty factor.IMG_0918

Saturday Hubby and I decided to get out of town for a change of scenery, so we dropped the FoxMonster off with the grandparents, packed a cooler and headed off to Isle of Palms and Charleston. The water was warm and inviting (no swimmnig on this trip), the city as beautiful as always, the tourist as slow as always, and the food wonderful. We came away Red Sided Tourists, but it was so worth it. Check out a few of our favorite spots next time you find yourself in our part of the world.

Riddle Me This…

If limes have no seeds, then how do we get more limes?

Love a classic margarita like I do: sweet, sour, bitter, and savory? Then enjoy my Hubby’s Classic Recipe:

Makes About 4 Margaritas

Equipment Needed:

Reamer & Microplane & Pitcher & Wooden Spoon

Juice of 4 limes

200 ml Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila

100 ml Cointreau

 1/2 cup Lime infused Simple Syrup (1/2 cup water & 1/2 cup sugar with the zest of 1 large lime)

Stir together, add 3 ice cubes per glass, squeeze a slice of lime over ice and rub glass rim, pour margaritas and let the fiesta ensue!

Superpowers Activate!

So aliens are supposed to be highly intelligent, have huge bald heads, and wield all kinds of mental power. So what if we weakly humans were suddenly like Samson, and had superpowers of hair?

Which hair would reign supreme?

Mondays Are Always Confusing

Well we made it – day is done and the pennies have been earned. It can only get better from here. We are this much closer to Friday!!!

Head scratching observation of the day:

Why is it that 1 Arab American who was jailed in a foreign country was all over the news for a few weeks, with her family and the Secretary of Sate on TV arguing for her release, but for more than 2 months we have 2 Korean American women being held by another foreign country garnering no news coverage by the major medias (until today)?

I Eat, You Eat, We Eat

I love food: I love to buy food, cook food, make food, and eat food. I am aware of where my food comes from: real, live animals and plants. Animals that I could certainly make into family pets. It is out of my respect for our animals, our health and our food supply that I buy my products.

Interesting

Happen to be watching PBS’s American Experience tonight: Test Tube Babies. Did not know it a woman was the first to witness a successful human fertilization and it was a woman who pushed for the procedure to be done.

Never underestimate the power of a biological clock indeed!
