    Your first job?

    Like most young girls, babysitting. At 15 I worked behind the counter at a bakery just a block from my house. I think I only lasted about 2 weeks, LOL. Next was in a donut shop (I couldn't stand to eat or smell donuts once I left after several months). I then worked in the deli section of a liquor store for several months. I make EXCELLENT samiches (Wendy can vouch for that, lol).
  5. Bread pudding needs to be moist...not soggy and not dry...and have some great flacor I love japanese sticky rice with teriyaki sauce mixed with it.
  6. I had never tried bread pudding til about 10 years ago and.....I LOVED it! Bread pudding shouldn't be "soggy" though. Bread pudding is basically french toast, just in a different arrangement, if you will.
  7. Some would say rice is not a dessert, however, there's rice pudding as well as some asian rice desserts. I like my rice as....rice....not in pudding, LOL.
  8. Ok...that definitely is EWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!
  9. I posted the following on my Facebook and am getting a decent response, so I thought I might post it here and see what happens, lol. You know that "odd" combination of items that you eat that others wrinkle their nose at or say "EWWWWWWWW", yet you think it tastes great? What is that something you eat that is just the "oddest" combination (in most other's eyes, lol)? One of mine is a piece of cold chicken fried steak on a biscuit with grape or blackberry jelly...a salty/sweet thang
  10. Thank you guys, I really appreciate it It's still so hard to fathom and I've cried all night just thinking about it all I came across a quote that sounded just right: “Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.â€
  11. I've read the news of the passing away of a concert buddy I've known for several years now. He had a heart attack after the Y&T NYE show. I had spoken and hugged him before the show began. I'm stunned and saddened with tears streaming down my face. I would always see him at the Night Ranger shows and in October he gave me a drumstick that he caught (Kelly Keagy's) cuz he knew how much I love that band. He was the biggest Y&T fan. Can't believe he's gone..... Steven, your wings have now taken you to heaven.....RIP my buddy, aka Mighty Proud Eagle.... The pic is of him with John Nymann and John's wife, Steven is in the middle.
  12. So many things have changed in our family over the years, however the one tradition that has kept going throughout it all is that the kids would be able to open up one gift on Christmas Eve..which was new pj's, so that we'd have something nice to wear to bed and to be in for pics come Christmas morning. We have kept that tradition going with my niece and nephew I was always excited to get new pj's.....
  13. Since I've only been on this board for a couple of months, I'm not sure if this topic/thread has ever come up. All that talk about stuffing/dressing got me to thinking that it would be cool to share some some recipes with everyone. I have several recipes, but I'll start out with two appetizers. Texas Caviar (Feel free to omit anything or increase/decrease anything): 1 red bell pepper diced 1 green bell pepper diced 1 orange bell pepper diced 1 yellow bell pepper diced 1 can blackeyed peas (drained) 1 small can diced chiles 1 can corn (drained) 6-8 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced Thinly sliced green tops of scallions 1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped 1 bottle zesty italian dressing Put all in a bowl, pour the Italian dressing (I get mine from the dollar store as it's just being used as a marinade) over the mixture and stir so all is coated. Let sit in fridge for at least 4 hours (or overnight). Put mixture in a colander and drain. Serve with a thicker tortilla chip. ** I’ve personally added black beans (rinsed and drained), more corn, combo of petite diced tomatoes (drained) and fresh tomatoes and I like a lot of cilantro. I personally omit the red and green bell peppers as I don’t like their flavor. It's a refreshing change from the usual chips and ranch or onion dips, as well as chips and salsa. I like putting some in a salad, you could put over an omelet, etc. Olive Dip 2 8oz pkgs cream cheese, softened 1 small can chopped black olives 1 1/2 to 2 Tablespoons "Cavender's Greek Seasoning" (you MUST use this brand! see pic) In a bowl, mix cream cheese and olives. Add Greek Seasoning, start with 1 1/2 Tablespoons and taste, add more, a little at time til the taste is good for you. The taste can get too salty if too much seasoning is used. **I don't like olives but I do eat this as there's no "olivey" taste...trust me! It tastes great on just about any type of cracker and it's especially yummy on those little mini toasts
  14. In a casserole dish, that way you get both crispy on top and soft and moist underneath. My sister makes our Mom's recipe, a simple sage dressing (onions, celery, butter, salt, pepper, sage, bread crumbs, cream of mushroom soup and chicken or veggie broth to moisten). My sister tried a different stuffing one year (Martha Stewart's cornbread with cranberries) and we all told her to never do that again,
  15. Great news! Hang in there and stay positive.

  17. James, you are so right! We had visited with a friend of ours who lives in Columbus just a couple days before heading to Cleveland. I was born in Washington Court House, which is about 40 minutes southwest of Columbus.
  18. I knew that but Wendy kept calling it the Founder's Room so I've had that stuck in my head, LOL.
  19. Can I just say what a BLAST I had in Cleveland???!!! But what the hell is up with all the roadkill on the Ohio roads AND "Left Lane Ends" signs in the freeway, I mean Interstate??? LOL Wendy and I met such wonderful people - David (NOT "Dave", lol), Steve, Tim from WI and of course, Danny. What a GREAT group of guys! Steve picked an excellent place for us to meet up the first night - Melt. Tim set us up in the Founder's room at the House of Blues the second night. Tim and I went to see Starz at the Beachland Ballroom the third night, but we had dinner at the Fireside Grill with several other Starz fans. Got to meet Jim Bonfanti there, as he was playing in a band there that night. What a thrill! I absolutely loved the tree lined streets, and many of the trees were starting to turn to their fall colors. We don't get much of that here in the San Francisco Bay Area. If it weren't for the weather in Cleveland, I could probably live there I've gone ahead and posted a link to several of my pics (I hope it works). http://s110.photobucket.com/albums/n82/TartanBo/Cleveland%20Rocks/ Thanks to everyone who made our time in Cleveland a BLAST. Love you guys!!!
  20. I'm home, I'm tired, I'm happy to see my babies (two cats)! I had an absolute blast while in Cleveland! Danny Sidoti was gracious enough to let Wendy and me stay at his place, the downside was that Danny had to work the entire time so we didn't get enough Danny time We met David Hutson and Steve Potocin (OMG he cracked us up!) and Tim Hilbert. I got to spend some extra time with Tim as he and I went to see Starz on Saturday night. Danny, David, Steve and Tim.....what a GREAT bunch of guys I will get my pics together in the coming days... One last thing....CLEVELAND ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!
