Leftovers I took home from a recent restaurant meal. See how I have protected the fries from the spaghetti "juice" with a napkin barrier?
I love a side order of french fries with italian food. I love the fries with the tomato sauce. I especially like fries with a meatball parm sub!
I was glad to see the announcement of Amazon's new Kindle Fire (which actually looks really cool) at a price of $199. It is ABOUT TIME these "tablety" thingys got cheaper. I would really like an iPad but for Pete's sake, I can buy a LAPTOP COMPUTER for the price of the iPad. Ridiculous!!
I know right now everyone is all "poo poo" on Netflix, but we just tried it for the first time and I LOVE IT! I don't watch a lot of tv and I love the idea of actually getting to choose what I want to watch when I actually sit down to watch tv. I know some people complain about there not being enough streaming choices, but I've watched so few newer tv shows, there's plenty for me. Not to mention hundreds of episodes of the Dick Van Dyke show, Cheers and Monk which alone could keep me entertained for months. And Hoarders! :-P
Speaking of that, since we don't watch a lot of tv, we are seriously thinking of ditching our satellite tv, which is a little scary, but I think we have the cheapest Directv package (that they advertise - there are "secret" cheaper plans you can get if you call to cancel - I HATE that) and it's pretty expensive compared to $7.99/mo for Netflix. (This is a pretty interesting website: Ditch Cable Today) Here's the thing though - right now we stream it on one tv through the Wii (and can watch it on our computers of course). But if we want to stream it on another tv, what do we choose? A Smart/Google tv? Blu-Ray player? Roku box? Head...about...to...explode!!! (Opinions on this greatly appreciated!!)
You know, I think the only way to prepare butternut squash and have it actually taste good it to load it with butter and/or sugar and/or cheese. Which sorta defeats the "healthful" reasons for eating it in the first place. Just not a real tasty vegetable if you ask me. I'm giving up on that one for now. Unless one of you can convince me otherwise. Oh and ixnay on utternutbay quashbay oupsay. My peeps don't like that either.
I have boycotted mowing the lawn until the humidity goes away. I don't care how long it gets, I'll deal with it when it's cooler. I have reached my "sweating" quota for the year. Plus you know, we never got that reprieve in August when the lawn usually burns out for a few weeks - it rained too darn much this summer and if anything, it grew extra!!! I'm still mad about that.
I hate water chestnuts. It's like eating slices of styrofoam.
