Thankful Thursday!

I don't even know if I could tell you how thankful I am that today is Thursday.  The day did start out just a little rough, but we coffee'd through that.  I am so glad that I get to share some lovely things with you that I am super thankful for. 

1. Sunday is my birthday!!!  34 years ago Sunday, my Momma bore me from her womb.  I am so thankful that God used her to deliver me into this world and that she and my father, cared for me and taught me and set me free to unleash my craziness self on the world.

2. With that in mind I am thankful for early birthday presents!!!!!! Which will make up the rest of my Thankful Thursday list...

A.   A membership to The Detroit Institute of Art.  I am looking forward to wandering around and taking in all  the beautiful arts and maybe even catching a film or two!

B. A gift card to amazon.com where I purchased not only Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs from Video On Demand that we've been watching on the Roku, but also a subscription to Midwest Living, some music, and some sundries for the kitchen. 


C. Finally a fore mentioned music has a song that I have wanted for ages!  It's from the movie Shag and I love the scene on the dock and have wanted the tune from it for the longest time, but it's not on the soundtrack and then the movie was bought from Doubletree by MGM and the music was changed in it.  Which was so terribly disappointing, but alas, I have the song and it will be shipped to me in a matter of days! (If you happen to read the reviews of this movie, you will see, that most everyone is upset by this soundtrack change)

3.  I wanted to let you all know that I am terribly thankful for all of you, my blog readers!  I really enjoy writing for you.  If there is ever anything that you have a question about or that you would like for me to write about, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or drop me an email sometime.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
