Save Pushing Daisies!

Please save my favorite show! I love this show. Its original and funny.

Please visit the petition.

Also see ljc fyi for some creative ways to send a message to ABC.

I think this is one of the best shows on television. I don't like reality or law/medical/jury shows either, they are all the same. Please help us save this show.

Let's Roll!

These are some crappy pictures, but I had to share. I tried something a little different with the Challah recipe from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I had some of the Challah dough in my fridge and saw a recipe on and saw how she made rolls and decided to try this method. LOVE IT! It was easy peasy.
And it made great rolls. I will be bringing this to our Thanksgiving Dinner this year. Its easy and makes spectacular rolls. Warm from the oven with butter, mmmmmmmmmm.

Are these not the best looking rolls?

Yes. Yes, they are.

All Hallow's Eve

We did the Halloween thing this year. Of course. But we did the "what's in the house" type of costume instead of the bought costume of earlier years.

The kid decided he wanted to be a Hobo this year and of course I have quite the resources for that! We found an old tweed jacket of mine from 15 years ago (still dusty from the closet; all the better). I sewed patches on the elbows from some old window treatments; and some old holey jeans, fingerless gloves, an old handkerchief, an old knitted hat, and some makeup work (dark eybrows and some dark eyeshadow for a 5 o'clock shadow). As you can see, he has his bindle. The kid ruled!

Way too much candy. It was either "Must give the Hobo more" or "Look at this great home-made costume, must give more candy". He totally scored! Now we have to eat all this candy (mostly chocolate).

As you can see, there are lots of empty candy wrappers, LOL.

Happy, All Hallow's Eve!
