~A few links for your enjoyment~

Susan Godfrey posted on a topic that really got me thinking: wardrobe planning. I don't spend a lot of money on clothing, as I buy most everything on sale or clearance. However, I have a lot of hits and misses in my closet. Susan wrote a list of things she's going to look for and buy/make in the next few years. I need to do the same thing!

Mrs. C posted a mom's dictionary recently, and I laughed out loud all the way through. It's hilarious, mostly because it's so true!

I love to try out new recipes, and one way I enjoy getting recipes is through my blogging friends! For some reason, it makes me feel closer to that person when I'm making something that they make too! :) Mrs. U posted a recipe for potato leek soup, and I'm telling you, it's delicious! I haven't ever used leeks before, so this gave me the opportunity. When I checked out, the cashier asked me what they were, because she'd never seen them before! LOL

I use leeks often now as a substitute for the bulb onions that the kids can't tolerate. We can use green onions too, but the big Walla Walla sweets are a no-go for them. :( very sad, we love onions here.

But anyway, leeks are low in salicylates so we can do them just fine.

Shouldn't your title be "a few leeks for your enjoyment" ??

Yesterday, I had to go to the bathroom & brought the paper in with me to read. I saw in it a good looking Mayonnaise Cake recipie that looked good. Hubby & I are diabetic so I figured I could convert it to diabetic by using the Splenda mixed with Domino Sugar blend. So instead of doing other stuff I needed to do I made the cake. we'll have it with dinner tonite. I told hubby he will be glad I read the paper now... :)

I love clothes, but I don't like to spend a lot of money on them either. I love to go to the thrift stores, I can get so many dresses for the price of one at a departmnet store---I was in a hurry one day and picked out this long black skirt, when I got home, I noticed it had a slit all the way up the leg..LOL--OOPS----I am going to sew it up, after it is sewed It will look lovely and it is so versatile I can wear so many different tops with it--and it has an elastic waste so it will grow with me, as the baby grows:)

I love potato leek soup, it is soooo yummy!!
When I was in Georgia, the cashier did not know what an avacado was..LOL
