Okay, a few days ago I showed you a recipe that sounded incredible.Two recipes, in fact, Ree Drummond's Rib Eye Steak w/ Onion and Bleu Cheese and her Monkey Bread.Since I had to go food shopping yesterday and the rib-eyes were both on sale and cut just right (I prefer thin to thick), I went ahead and bought them, bought the onions, heavy cream and cheese.Oh.

Clearing out the tab

I've got some deadlines to meet and a project I'd like to get started, so I need to stop futzing around, reading news and blogs and get to it. Here is what's been cluttering up my tab-bar for the last day or so - it's a bit of a jumble, sorry:Malta, shamelessly cribbed from CrescatBeautiful Malta!

Prejean; cautionary tale for Christians – UPDATED

The word of the week is "crazy" – UPDATED

UPDATE: Please note, I had a copy of the projected deficit chart which you can see here included with this piece, but it apparently violated my photohost's terms of use.So the Journolist or whoever it is who co-ordinates the narratives for the Mainstream Media, seem to have settled on the word "crazy," and "insane," to describe people who are not "moderates," like them.If you do not like this chart and think something should be done about it, you are "crazy"From the LA Times: … [Read more...]

Obama & Dems: Put your dreams away…UPDATED

My husband works for a company that is trying to sell their product to places like Lowe's and Home Depot.I hear Obama say "BUILDING SPRAWL STOPS NOW!" and I think, there go 800,000 jobs. And along with those jobs, probably another 100,000 jobs in retail and business technologies.And there goes an awful lot of tax revenue. How we are supposed to pay for this beast of a bill without taxable earnings is something the great "I Won" - who can't say a positive word about industry, … [Read more...]
