More food!

Yes! My friend and neighbor Joe is a manager of a Panera lucky am I?? He gave me a loaf of cinnamon/raisin bread!
I toasted a slice and put on a little lot actually... and I was in heaven!

Lately I've been into taking pictures of food. Maybe because after I cook something it looks so delicious that I want to remember it, or I'm proud of it and want to share, or maybe I'm just losing my mind..that could be it!
This is a recipe I got a from my friend Arlene years and years ago when I was working at Realty One. The flavors are amazing!
Bread dough with sage sausage, basil, and chopped parsley.

Baked to perfection!

Here's the recipe:
Preheat oven to 375
1 lb. Bob Evans Sage Sausage
1 lb. frozen bread loaf (or use Pilsbury French Bread in a can)
1 egg lightly beaten
1 TBLS chopped basil or 1 tsp. dried
2 TBLS chopped parsley
1 C shredded mozzarella cheese (I'm going to try 1 1/2 cups next time)
2 TBLS evoo
Grease baking sheet (I used a Pampered Chef browning stone). Brown sausage-drain. Pat dough into 12x9 rectangle on prepared sheet. Combine sausage w/egg, basil and parsley. Spread on dough. Leave 1/2" border. Sprinkle with cheese. Roll up jelly-roll fashion. Tuck ends under and place seam side down on center of baking sheet. Brush loaf lightly w/evoo. Bake 40 minutes until loaf is light brown. Cool on wire rack.  Enjoy!

Halloween Spider Web mini album

Well, I bought this blank mini album last year at Scrapfest and finally decided to do something with it. I really love how it turned out. Since Logan and Emmy moved here last year, I think I'm going to add a layout each year with everyone dressed in their Halloween garb!

Parking Citation!

I found these awesome parking citations at Pier One a couple of months ago. Today I'm at Toys R Us and some STUPID person who should not even be allowed to own a dog, left a black lab sitting in the front seat with the sun beaming through the windshield and it was 82 outside! HELLOOOOO???? This was the perfect opportunity for me to bust out my citations and underline a few choice words! I love these things!

In Training

I finished a layout of Paul today. This was based on a sketch at SketchSavvy. Journaling reads: I admire this man! Watching him train for his 1st marathon gave me a whole new feeling of admiration! 2/1/09.

My baby girl Jenn!

She's not a baby anymore :(
Jenn and her boyfriend Toby, going to a friends' wedding.

I Heart Elton!

Paul & I went to see Elton John in concert on Thursday night! What an awesome show! I love him...and have since the early 70's when I lived in California. My friends and I would sit on the beach and listen to songs from his "Madman Across the Water" album (yes, they were called albums back then)! He played quite a few songs from that along with some other greatest hits...I just had goose bumps the whole time!! I wish I had brought my camera since at the beginning I heard announced not to use flash..that means you CAN take pictures. So, I landed up using my cell phone :(

First day of SCHOOL!

Logan started kindergarten this year. I can't believe how time flies!!

So, this is not Logan's teacher. Funny thing though, his teacher is a daughter-in-law of a lady I worked with for almost 15 years at the real estate office. This is such a small town we live in!

Emmy is in the Leap's Program (pre-school). The same one Logan was in last year.
