birthday card

A card I made for Glenda, a co-workers birthday.  I used some peel-offs from Magenta, some patterned paper and some pretty yarn.

Movie Review-Leap Year

This movie is about a woman's boyfriend who is going to Dublin Ireland for a convention.  She thought he was going to propose to her before he left but instead gave her some diamond earrings.  There is a tale that says on the one day of leap year in February it is acceptable for a woman to propose to a man.  She decided to go to Ireland to propose.  She has all kinds of problems getting there via plane, boat etc. and employs a handsome Irishman to drive her to Dublin.  It was quite an adventure to get there and she becomes attracted to him.  I think that Amy Adams is a great actress, I love watching her face and I am always a sucker for romance.  See what you think.

Movie Review-Marmaduke

We had recorded this movie because HBO gave a free weekend.  It was a lighthearted comedy, and as I say you can't go wrong with animals that talk and dance.  Marmadukes family had moved to California and he was trying to fit in the best he could being a big and tall dog.  They would go to a dog park where they had the dog cool guys, nerdy dogs, silly dogs, dogs that exaggerate.  He got into the "cool" crowd but it just went to his head.  He had a party while the family was away and they tore up the house.  It had a fun ending.  We got lots of laughs and it's great to watch with boys-no matter what-farts are always funny. 

Take a look:

Such the Colors

I put this salad together so that we can pack it in our lunches each day.  Adding that purple cabbage gives it such a pleasing look.  I used my salad spinner so that it would stay nice and dry.  Put some chicken on it and something crunchy-I used tortilla strips and its quite tasty and healthy.

I love potato soup.  The Pampered Chef chopper works great on potatoes and gives it a decorative edge too.

Boil the potatoes with some salt and a few chicken bouillon cubes.

Make a nice white sauce to add and you have some soup to take for lunch during the week along with the salad. 
As Mr. Food says......Oh so good!
