New Years Entertaining

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. In the few days it will be 2013 meaning 2 things: New Years Eve parties and resolutions. Here are some of the ideas I have for food and décor for a party if you are throwing one (by next year this time I will be in my own place thank God) or even for snacks before you go out on the town from Kraft food and Pinterest.

Thoughtful Thursday

Hello peeps,

Given everything that has happened in the last week I though I would do some lighter/funny cards from

Funny JELL-O Ecard: Let's eat like the world is ending, and then diet if it doesn't.

If at first you don't succeed, then maybe you should do it the way I told you to in the beginning.

Funny JELL-O Ecard: Let's party like there's no tomorrow, and call in sick if there is one.

I know I am getting old when my friends start having kids on purpose.

I am currently in the planning stages of a hangover.

Thank goodness its almost the weekend. Laters......

The last couple of days, I have been trying to figure out what route God wants me to go with my life. There has been a lot of soul-searching and "Come to Jesus" meeting with myself. With this blog there has been times that I wonder if anyone is even reading it. I do want to thank two people: Tyler and Ashley for letting me know that there are at least two people who think what I have to say is somewhat interesting. There, I am done with my mine petty party. I know it's a day late and all but here are the quotes for the week:
Inspirational inspirational-quotes

Beautiful and Inspirational Quotes, just for you <3

Keep you head up...

Always room for improvement.

... ignore things.

After all that soul-searching I am officially a "college student" again. Going to school has become my career at this point. When all is said and done though I am going to end up doing something that I am interested in: combining my love of food and health. Anywho, everyone have a good weekend and until next time: Laters.....

Readings for December

I have been reading why more than I did this time last year. Maybe that's because I have too much time on my hands with not having a job and nothing really to do. Anywho, there are a couple of books that I have started to read this month. I just finished The Best Advice I Ever Got by Katie Couric and here are some of the new books that I have to read:

Everyone enjoy your hump day. Laters.......

What I made: November edition

We are now in the month of December but I finally figured out how to get my pictures I took to actually show up on the blog. So, here are a few of the things that I made for Thanksgiving:    

Three Cheese Corn Casserole:
This was the first time I ever made this but I will be making it again. I am considering adding meat in it next time.

Vegan Stuffing:
My older sister and my brother-in-law came into town from California this year. She has become a hardcore Vegan since last Thanksgiving. I decided to try to make stuffing with no animal byproducts in it. It actually turned out really good and was really moist. I broke two bags of whole wheat rolls, a pan of cornbread (used what in it instead of meal), a box and a half of organic vegetable broth, sage, celery, onion, salt and pepper.

Mini Brie pastries:
I know everyone who has ever been to a dinner party or a wine tasting had had the brie wrapped in the crescent dough or puff pastry. I bought a Président Brie log and two crescent rolls. I rolled out the dough and cut the log into slices, placing the slices on top of the squares that I cut.

I then bake them in the oven at 375 degrees for 8-11 minutes.
I then cut some apple slices and paired the mini brie pastries with the apples (and wine of course).

There was a sweet potato pie I made but, me and the crust were at war and the crust won. I took a picture of it but in all honesty I am to embarrassed to show it to anyone outside my family.

That is was I made over those couple of days. I plan on making a cake and some other things in the next month so until tomorrow, Laters....
