The week end turned out pleasant enough, Saturday the winds were totally outrageous, so I did a bunch of errands and things around the house that kept me from being blown away outside. All the blooms on my pear trees were blown completely off and are now standing naked in my backyard, how awkward! Sunday was spent doing some much needed yard work and tending to my future garden in progress. It got up to 70 degrees and this morning I see some sunburn on my nose, cheeks and forehead, guess I’ll need to buy a hat for my gardening ventures, in order to protect my face this summer.
Saturday afternoon a friend from work came by, we had dinner, a few drinks, some laughs and then went on my computer for a time being. He is a whiz online and always shows me the most interesting and enlightening things when he comes over and we spend some time online.
We ended up talking about and checking out different webhosting options. We referenced the site of Webhostinggeeks.com, a site that offers independent web hosting reviews and ratings of the ten top web hosts available. I wasn’t surprised to see Go Daddy on their list as the largest web hosting, while Yahoo came in as the most reliable of them all.
All ten rated hosts offer cheap professional web hosting, with their services available for $10 and under per month. They all offer one free domain, along with a 30 day money back guarantee. A valuable resource before making the important decision of committing to a web hosting company for your web hosting needs. It’s all good!

While on the subject of yummy foods, I have to tell you that the cheese and mushroom stuffed chicken that I made last night (under protest, mind you) turned out really great. I don’t normally like anything to do with mushrooms, although I have found a few recipes that I have been able to stomach along the way. So when my mother sent me the recipe that she found online for this cheese and mushroom stuffed chicken on the Sargento Foods website, I wasn’t all that excited about trying it. Now that I have tried it, now I have to confess to my mother that she was right, something that I don’t enjoy doing, but alas I must.
I have always enjoyed the cheeses made by Sargento and their italian cheese really makes a difference in this recipe. I do believe that the strong taste of the italian cheese helps mask the taste of the fresh mushrooms that are included in this stuffed chicken recipe. I think that I will check out their website as well and see if there is something else there to offer that I might be able to cook up and serve one night. Eating the same old same old gets tiresome doesn’t it?

Back in the day when I was a little girl my mother would buy cans of Reddi Whip whipped cream. We would have a dessert after almost every dinner because my dad loved dessert. We always saved room for dessert! We used Reddi Whip on a lot of the desserts.Sometimes dessert was as simple as a little cup of Breyer’s ice cream. Mom would squirt some Reddi Whip on top and put a maraschino cherry or little sugar sprinkles on it. At least once a week we would have some kind of pie and once a week we would have some kind of cake. In between those we might have Jello with Reddi Whip squirted on top.
My favorite these days is warm ginger bread topped off with good old Reddi Whip!

Today my sister is celebrating her 40th birthday. I wish she could spend the day doing everything fun and nice for herself to pamper her body and relax the mind. Wouldn’t that be a nice way to start the next year of your life?
But she doesn’t have that luxury, what with the economic times we are all in plus the fact that her hubby was hurt in a car wreck and can’t work until he recovers. So it was off to work she goes, and her dinner plans include Chinese take out that she picks up on her way home from work. So at least she doesn’t have to cook.
Sis – I love you and hope you manage to have a happy day on your 40th birthday!
Happy Birthday Sis!

I can’t imagine not being able to eat popcorn. I have a dear friend that I just found out is suffering from some type of bowel issues, I think it is called Diverticulitis and she is no longer able to eat many things, popcorn being on the top of the list. What a drag I’m sure that will be for her.
Me, on the other hand, can eat all the popcorn I want. I love popcorn and enjoy all the different types that have been coming out on the market these past several years. I have found two favorite places to buy popcorn online, where they always have a great selection of popcorn, you can mix and match and create your own samplers, even have gift baskets that are yummy. I’ve told many a people about this website and have never heard a bad word about any of their orders. I have even provided the link for both of them as a hint for many gift giving suggestions for myself and others! I mean lets face it Christmas isn’t the only time of the year that gift giving is in order, so this is a perfect gift for any of the numerous other gift giving occasions that go on all year long.
