Umm, an unusual Valentines day gift – a heart shaped car!

Ya know that old question – what do you get for the person who has everything?  Wellll,  you know we’d come up with something – and that something is the heart shaped car from Danacol.  True, it may be a little over the top, but we do like to show you the outrageous.   Check it out:

Now, it’s true – if my sweetie comes rolling up in this number as my Valentines day gift, I just might look at him a little crosswise.  But hey, it’s hard to shop for a gal who has everything right?

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Well, you know how they say misery loves company right?  I’m finding that to be especially true today since this past weekend of culinary indulgences have left me a few pounds heavier when I stepped on the scale this morning.  In honor of this misery, I figured I’d try to sabotage you all as well by providing a yummy, sweet, calorie laden temptation so that you all can share my feelings of over-indulgence.  I’m not sharing this recipe so that you can make a dozen and eat only one – oooh nooo, that is not the point of this exercise.  If you make them you’ve got to eat lots and lots of them (similar to how I behaved when I had fried chicken, fried fish, pizza, strawberry tart and a burger all in the same day – and no, I wasn’t at a buffet restaurant).  Sooo, while I sweat it out over multiple aerobics tapes this week I’ll be thinking about all of you enjoying sweet treats like this one.  Have one for me – I’m in dessert detox this week!

Mmm, Sweets! – Raspberry Tiramisu Recipe

I am now in desperate need of dessert.  I was innocently minding my own business, browsing the ‘net when I should be working on a project, and I happened to come across this Rapsberry Tiramisu recipe.  Just look at it – wouldn’t it catch your attention too?

I wasn’t even looking for sweets.  (I was however looking at food, as usual!)  And in my defense, let me also say that raspberry isn’t even one of my favorite fruits, but I’m gonna make this one for dessert this evening if I can wait that long.  Then next time I may try to sub out the raspberries for strawberries, yummmm.  So, why don’t you give this one a try and let me know what you think.  Got your own wonderful tiramisu recipe that you’d like to share?  Post it here so we can all try it out as well!  Happy snacking everyone.

Now That’s Funny

Hey all, just wanted to share a little something funny that I read recently.  According to the source this is an actual ad that was posted to Craigslist, however, I will leave it up to you whether or not you think that’s true.  Anyway, hope it brings a smile to your face as it did to mine!

To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown  Savannah  night before last.
Date: 2009-05-27, 1 :43 a.m.  E.S.T.
I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend’s purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.
 First, I’d like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn’t expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket.. The even ing was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason.. My girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head … isn’t it?!
 I know it probably wasn’t fun walking back to wherever you’d come from with that brown sludge in your pants. I’m sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again].
 After I called your mother or “Momma” as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you’d done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, — on your credit card.. The guy with the big motor home took 150 gallons and was extremely grateful!
 I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go’s, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]
 I then threw your wallet into the big pink “pimp mobile” that was parked at the curb … after I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver’s side of the car.
 Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for a little over a day now, so what ‘s going on with that? Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA’s office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target..
 The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).
  ;In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you .. but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you’ve chosen to pursue in life. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky.Have a good day!
Thoughtfully yours,

Vegetable Noodle Soup


Mmmm, with this cold snap we’re suffering through doesn’t a nice warm bowl of veg soup sound great?  Does to me – along with anything else that’ll keep me warm, like hot chocolate, chili, coffee – well, you get what I’m saying!  I know I shouldn’t really complain about the cold,  living in Florida now – this is certainly nothing like what I grew up with all my life in Buffalo (can we say lake effect snow people?) but I can’t help but feel just a wee bit cheated, since the reason why I moved here in the first place was to avoid real cold.  I’m used to fake cold now, but this weather is taking me back to my roots!  Oh well, I’ll whip up a nice batch of this soup and daydream about the summertime!  Check out the recipe here:
