Prom Night

Junior/Senior Prom was last night.
Emily has some great memories.
And she looked so cute.  ;)

I didn't think I should post pictures of her friends, even though I am pretty sure there will be hundreds of photos uploaded to Facebook....when those tired friends wake up.

My sister hosted the group photo session at her house.
(I haven't seen any of those pictures yet).

We hosted the meal at our house.
Emily was the hostess at one of the tables...

and my niece was hostess at the other table.
The Troll table decorations are an ongoing joke.  :)

It has been a full week of family around here....
which makes for a full week of cooking and laundry.
Sorry it has been rather quiet in this spot lately.

Friendie's Vegan Sandwich

He asked for a 'Burger King'.
(Which is just a hamburger in a bun)

I didn't have the burger, just the bun.

So he told me he would have a sandwich.
I asked him what he wanted in his bun to make it a sandwich....
he said bread.
So I put Pumpernickle Rye bread in his bun.

He smiled and ate the whole thing.

How is that for a Vegan sandwich!   :)

Bicycle Basket Love

I ordered myself a bicycle basket.
I love it!

It is a Peterboro Basket.
I ordered it online.

And like most online purchases,
I am now blessed with weekly advertisements.

Before I kindly 'unsubscribe', I thought I would pass on a really great basket sale on to you....
just in case you want to have a cool bike basket like me.  ;)

I ordered the biggest bicycle basket and the funky little attachment that you can see in this keep the basket from bouncing around.  I decided on the cherry colored stain....

because I thought it complimented the bike seat. :)

Bicycle baskets are on sale now!
Plus get 15% off any baskets with this code
(good until 4/24/12)

Down The Vegan Road

It all began last week.
Our friend (Oncologist) had been on a Vegan diet for 2 weeks.
He stumbled upon a documentary on Netflix.
He ordered the DVD and sent it home with my (mocking) husband.
My husband (Family Medicine Physician), watched it.
The next day my husband informed me he would also be following a Vegan diet.

I made him oatmeal.
(added almonds, dates, dried cranberries and coconut....served with Almond milk)

We are talking about a man who loves meat....and eggs....and dairy!
What was in that DVD that could make him take such 'drastic' measures?

I decided I needed to find out for myself.
I watched it.
It makes a lot of sense.

So I will prepare some Vegan foods for him/us.
Sister, on the other hand, said she isn't ready to give up her bacon.  :)

Vegan recipes greatly appreciated.

I'm Still Here

I know I have been rather quiet lately.
I don't have much to blog about.
Days like today put me in a slump.
The forecast is predicting snow tonight.
Maybe I am depressed.

No...I am not depressed.
Yesterday was warm and sunny.
 I did a little 'retail therapy'.
Maybe I did buy a few too many green plants....
and then again....
maybe not!  :)

I will charge up my camera batteries and pull myself up by the seat of my pants...
and you will hear more from me this week.
I promise.

Birthday Gifting

Happy Birthday to my Twin Sister

A few weeks back we bought 5 rather wimpy looking blueberry plants.
They were marked down to $4 each.
They are thriving.
Why didn't we buy more???
