The food network thing replays a few times this week. Just do a program search for Outrageous Foods.
We saw part of the show last night. What outrageous food did your place feature? We saw some giant burger/sandwich thing with a pork chop and then some "inside-out" burger. Either of those you guys?

We've had our share of bad luck beginning the first of the year with DH's scooter breaking down, and couldn't be fixed for two months while the part shipped slow boat from England. Had to buy a different scooter in the meantime, and make minor repairs & updates to that. Including a rear tire.

Then we were going to get new tires for both our vehicles with the tax return money. Of course, we couldn't file our return until Feb 15th (we itemize) and of course the first car had a flat that couldn't be repaired until about Jan 25th. Luckily the budget was doing okay that month and we had the $580 for those tires. Then around Feb. 6th the other car got a flat tire. You guessed it, unrepairable. Luckily we could wait a few days until payday with that car and pay the $625 for those tires. So that makes 9 tires. Oh wait, we had to replace a tire on the original scooter in January because a 3" screw was embedded in it. So we've bought 10 new tires in the last 4 months.


Then the dryer broke. But DH dug in and fixed it. Yay!! Only about a $30 repair. But if he didn't put the shoes in the dryer like I've told him countless times in the past, it probably wouldn't have happened. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) Just sayin'.

His mom got sick, unexpectadly, and the assisted living facilty was going through a bout of the flu all over, so everyone attributed her being sick to the flu. Unfortunately, two hospital trips later, and an exploratory surgery it was discovered her appendix had burst and perforated her intestine. She went to live with Jesus 3 days after her surgery. There was nothing more they could have done at that point. It's been really tough on my husband, his 3 sisters and his dad. We all miss her so much still.

Then his cell phone broke, and we had to get a new one. Then the new one arrived in the mail,and that one stopped working 3 days after we received it. The new one is working fine now, and we're on day #2. WOOT!

Last night on his way home a warning light lit up on the new scooter we just purchased. Luckily it was a standard, change the belt at 16000 miles light. That was one of the things that we did when we first purchased the scooter. Whew that crisis averted.

Please think good thoughts for my DH as he has someone looking to buy the old scooter after work today. Please let this man buy the scooter.

But why originally came to this thread. I stopped at a garage sale after picking my son up from an overnight campout at our church, and found a Dooney and Bourke purse with wallet, and only paid $5!!! WOOT!! Ebay here I come!!

Funny thing I saw today......

I was checking out at Walgreens today and the lady in front of me starts shouting, "She just got in her trunk!" "That lady just shut herself in her trunk!" We all look out the window and it is pouring rain. She points at a caddy parked across the lot from the door. The cashiers are all debating if they should contact the police, people are speculating that perhaps she is mentally ill. The rain slows down and the store manager goes out to the car. Up pops the trunk. A senior citizen pops out of the caddy and the manager helps her into the store.

She comes in explaining to him that she just had her hair done and was not going to get it wet in that downpour. She opened the trunk to look for her umbrella when the rain really started coming hard. The umbrella was not in her trunk and she just decided to wait it out in the trunk.

Went to the website and perused the goodies-------told DH next Sunday is our anniversary and my birthday----told him that's where he was taking me for our anniversary dinner, I gotta have one of those ribeye sandwiches!!!!!!!! Then I saw the hours..........POOP!!!!! Closed on Sunday Frown
Well, I should know June 1 if I have to have ear surgery again--if there's enough nerve function left in my ear to replace the implant and regain hearing. I was adamant that if I have surgery again--WE ARE GOING to DM so I can have a sandwich!!

Graduation was flawless (abiet LONG) I remained composed until my son brought me 2 white roses and kissed me in front of God and Everyone........Then the waterworks started. We are not having his reception until next weekend, it's quite a drive from our area to our cabin where we are hosting the reception, didn't want a bunch of folks who'd been drinking having to travel 30 miles through a decent size town to get down there, so we opted to wait a week and have a better turnout. Kid was really ok with that, he was able to go do his thing with his friends.

We hit a few receptions, then met my in-laws for drinks at the local tavern that gramma and grampa used to own, it's a historical site, and a family tradition to go have a burger and a beer once a week or so (2nd time this week for us) MIL really bummed about gramma passing, got a couple beers in her and reminisced, by the time we left, she was in lots better spirits, thinking positively and actually celebrating gramma's life, not dwelling on her death. I guess with my point of view--many of you know that I am a nurse, been in long term care for many moons--that gramma prayed daily to "go home" and she left this earth on her own terms. I have sat with many grammas and grampas and moms and dads while they've passed, held the hands of those who are alone, and I can only describe it as the ultimate peace that one can achieve. It is devastating to those they leave behind, but it the most rewarding thing I have found about LTC, knowing that the suffering and pain is gone. I've cried many tears for the suffering of the sick and/or elderly and cried for the loss of the companionship they've provided, as you actually love most of the people you help care for, but they are finally at peace with all. Then is a time for celebration of the lives and legacies of these great souls and their time on earth.........

I didn't come on to be a downer again tonight, but I have so many feelings and thoughts just flowing and DH went to bed and fell asleep very quickly (Confused too much beer?) and I just wanted to vent.........

On a side note, anyone else notice the snarkiness of some of the folks on the board lately? I'm wondering if we are having a group menopause phase, cuz some of the posts are argumentative just for arguments sake.........Or am I just overly emotional this week?? I'm pretty thick skinned, I'd hate to be a newbie on the receiving end of those comments.......I don't anticipate some of them sticking around long if it doesn't calm down.

Anyway, it's late, I'm gonna try to hit the sack, but with my mind roaming, doubtful it will work for awhile. Tomorrow we go to the cabin to spring clean, mow and spruce it up for the grad reception, expecting about 200 people. Sure hope the weather improves, it's 45degrees here today, overcast, rain started about midnight.........Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)
I am making brisket for sandwiches, decided to serve the BBQ sauce on the side so folks who don't care for/can't eat it will be able to enjoy a sandwich or just a slice of meat or 2 (or 3) I think I have enough brisket to feed about 350 people, but I am one who worries about running out of food!! I'd rather have left-overs instead of run out.........Any of you wonderful cooks here have a "to die for" recipe for brisket? I generally just roast it slow with salt and pepper, but a GF gave me a recipe using Lawry's marinade and seasoned salt--Teriyaki marinade--and I'm not so sure about that one. I am personally not fond of teriyaki....I can it eat, but not my fav. After the meat is cooked, I want to keep it in my big electric roaster and I'd like it to stay moist and tender while the crowd comes and goes.....

George--what'd you have for supper tonight? MsG? MFH? BTW MFH, the bologna sandwich sounded awesome the other night--dad used to make those for me when I was little and we loved them!! Haven't had one in years......thanks for prodding my memories!!hug

You are gonna be sorry you asked what I ate today.

I have been busy moving a lady's blog from blogger to Wordpress...she bought her own domain and I was hired to set it all up for her so I have been working from the time I got up til just a few minutes ago.
Didn't have time to cook so I had 4 deviled eggs and 2 cans of potted meat with saltine crackers!


ETA: by the way, that was a fried bologna sandwich like my Daddy used to make

When we were at the tavern tonight, I was going to have one of grammy's favorite sandwiches--a grilled braunschweiger sandwich with a slice of onion, mayo and a dab of mustard--they were out of braunschweiger Frown

Sounds like something one of the residents @ work would do. If you even get near her hair when dressing her, she will swat at you....hard.
