Ok. I'm not even into tentacled creatures, but this little octopus is absolutely adorable!!

Mm, cookies

Distracted and not able to read this one at the moment. Tips on how to shorten time in the kitchen, and at least one really awesome sounding recipe. ;)

German Chocolate Fudge Bites. OMG, sounds delish.



Took my dog out just now and was looking around at all the pretty frosty scenes - then happened to look across the road and saw the herd of elk!! So cool. Took some nicer pics on my digital camera, but don't have time for editing at the moment. But I do have a fuzzy cell phone pic to share. LOL.

They're so pretty in the frosty field with the sun hitting the trees behind them. Such a nice sight to see this morning. ^__^


LOL. This is so awesome!

Rodents may not be my favorite, but capybaras are pretty darn cute. ^__^


S'mores Brownies

Looks so good! And much easier to eat. My s'mores always fall apart on me. LOL.

Freezer meals

It is supposed to be 100 degrees F today, so I am hibernating in the house. lol. No cooking going to happen, but there are a couple of recipes that look really good and then a whole page dedicated to meals you can just throw in the freezer for the future. Absolutely awesome.

This one is marinades for chicken: throw the frozen chicken pieces in the marinade and freeze, and then they're automatically marinating when they're defrosting! Brilliant. lol.

Sounds delicious!

Impressive lion!

This is such the coolest thing! A photographer managed to capture a lioness who took on a crocodile so the pride and the cubs could cross safely. WOW!! So cool.


I'm pleasantly shocked to report that the connection with my desktop is being quite nice tonight! Got some albums uploaded to my itunes and have been able to surf DW & LJ rather peacefully. Going to go see if my luck holds out for Facebook, but it will probably not for that. LOL. We'll see. Getting caught up with LJ was more than I was hoping for, so it's been a good night that way. :P

Slow Cooker

We've not been very good about using our slow cooker on a regular basis. One tip that I just learned about is to put your veggies on top of the roast! That way it won't soak up all the grease and it should be amazing and steamed. Going to have to try that next time for sure.

This site was also recommended, so I'm going to have to check it out. The person recommending it said that it's a gluten-free site as well, FYI. :o)

You get back what you give away
So don't look back on yesterday
Wanna scream out, no more hiding
Don't be afraid of what's inside
Gonna tell ya you'll be alright
In the aftermath
