I am still looking for new position, but not always like I should. I DO NOT want a job I don't like though. That temp position I had for a couple of months sucked.

I really have a lot to do around here, so I guess I should get up. I cooked breakfast this morning. Bacon and eggs.

I wish it were summer, it would be so much more fun to be off work in the freakin' summer!!!!!!!!!!! But NOOOOOoooo, my dumb butt takes the temp job and screws up a couple of really great months, and now I could be working while it is GOOD to be inside. humprh

Got George back to school yesterday.

We had a nice holiday, and the kids were out all week. Jake and his wife drove to New York to site see the day after Thanksgiving. I want to see New York just one time!!! I've seen pretty much everything else I have wanted to see except maybe Niagra falls.

I guess there is a lot I have't seen though.....................I wish I could take the kids to the Grand Canyon.

A man and a woman, who had never met before but were
both married to other people, found themselves assigned
to the same sleeping room on a Transcontinental train.
Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a
room, They were both very tired and fell asleep quickly...
he in the upper bunk and she in the lower.

At 1:00 AM, the man leaned over and gently woke the
woman saying, "Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would
you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second
blanket? I'm awfully cold."

"I have a better idea," she replied "Just for tonight, let's
pretend that we're married."

"Wow! That's a great idea!" he exclaimed.

"Good," she replied. "Get your own damn blanket!"

After a moment of silence, he farted.

I am so bored. I did nothing today. After making Emeril's Beef Wellington and about a million oatmeal and choc chip cookies yesterday, I was burned out.

I did take the girls to Busch Gardens for an hour after school before picking up Georgie from basketball practice. I pick up Jamila in 45 minutes

The New Martha Show

I am trying new things of course. I really need to get my butt up and restart the washer. This is my recreation time though.  Posted by Picasa
I mentioned before that I had lost a lot of weight, down from 213 and I got down to as low as 162. Now last time I checked I weighed 167. With all this cooking, I hope I can keep it down. I have decided to probably take the little girls to Busch after I pick them up and walk around the park a few times. It would be a nice walk and both Lee Lee and I need the excersize. It won't hurt Destiny either.

In the meantime, I am looking up the Martha Stewart website. I am so corny, I guess. It's a lot of fun though.

POOR MAN'S BEEF WELLINGTON (Recipe) @ Emeril's dot com I want to make this but without the mushrooms that I know my kids won't like. BUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuttttttttttttt, maybe if they can pick them out I could still do the recipe the way it is.

Cheeseburger Pie Recipe - Ground Beef Cheese Pie Recipe There's dinner, plus a salad of course.
Now I guess I am going to be the biggest provider of Food Network : Cooking, Recipe Collections, Entertaining, Wine & Drinks Videos : Food Network and stuff.

By the way, that banana bread didn't turn out too good yesterday, so my sister Paula is sending her Grandma's recipe. I am going to get up right this minute, lay out something for dinner and bake that pound cake. I have the recipe from Emeril's Pot Luck cookbook (which I probably posted about before). I have learn that baking and cooking are different. When you cook you can you a recipe or ideas from a recipe and do your own thing. When you bake, you are following a formula and you have to learn to do it the way the originator does it and make changes in flavors but not the basics.

That was my advice for the day.
Now here is Emeril's official site. Like anybody but me cares :)!
Spirit FM is my favorite radio station. You can listen live!!!

Wednesday, November 2 - Recipe - Ranched Red Potatoes Okay, this will be it. I can sub for the green onions.

I have some frozen corn that I can do straight up too.

Wish I had a Soma or two. Since I am not drinking yet again, I miss the buzz. I have to set an appt for Leroy with the doc and me too. Mine is just for getting my tiny (and I mean tiny) script for Soma, plus my crazy meds, etc.

Well I better start the washer and dryer and try to fold two loads before 2:30 when I have to leave and pick up Lee Lee. - Recipe - Red Potato Casserole Now this sounds good, but I don'twant to go by the store to get the cheese and fried onions. - Recipe - Banana Nut Bread With Bisquick This is the same recipe as indicated in the link below, but I have it in the oven right now :)! I also baked some cheese onion bread in my BreadBox bread maker. I am going to do ham steacks for dinner, but need to figure out what I am going to do with these russet potatoes.

I am either going to do Emeril's Lemon Pound cake later today or tomorrow. I am really enjoying being home, cooking and baking, even the cleaning. I have enrolled the girls' in girls scouts too!

Leroy loves all this shit of course. I think he stains his work shirts on purpose just to entertain me and to see if I can get whatever it is out. I have managed with everything except the ink!!!

Daniel's Digital Darkroom is a wonderful photography site done by my friend the "Blogger Boy". He taught me so much when I first started this blog and when I did my old web site that no longer exsists. His pictures are Amazing!!!!!
