Fly by the seat of our pants

>> Sunday, October 23, 2011

Saturday as planned, three friends jumped into the car for a girlfriends day. NO not Door County, NO we passed the Cedarburg exit....because Chicago (IKEA) became an even better idea. Yes, that's us, fly by the seat of our pants girls.


Chili outside, the warm Fall inside

>> Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Had dinner with Jim and Kathy Sunday night. Kathy made the MOST delicious chili.
Served true Wisconsin style over elbow macaroni!

Inviting home, good chili, good friends, recipe for a good evening.

Before dinner we had driven the country roads to visit a few produce stands and see the Fall colors.
We found the leaf colors had already peaked and were becoming dull and blowing away. It happens all too fast.
Wisconsin Gardener had an episode discussing the preservation of the leaves and branches in liquid floor wax.
It dries fast and the leaves keep a nice sheen.
 So here we are, enjoying our Fall just a little longer!!!

Doughnut Flowchart

>> Sunday, October 2, 2011

Since we are all human, healthy eating habits have holes, we call those holes, doughnuts.

Let me show you the way, MaryAnn style.
Start first by seeking out a Boston Cream Doughnut

Is it available?
Yes                                                                                No
Eat the Boston Cream Doughnut                                      Seek out a Chocolate
                                                                                            Sour Cream Doughnut

Is it available?
Yes                                                                                     No
Eat the Sour Cream Doughnut                                       Seek out a chocolate frosted
                                                                              cake donut

Don asked me for a laminated shopping guide (wallet sized). Of course, I am happy to do it and am right on it.
