The Best Marinade Ever!

Do you like to cook? It is one of my favorite things to do.  I love cooking on the weekends when we're not rushing in a million different directions. I can try new recipes. I like marinading meat overnight before putting it on the grill. By soaking in a marinade over a long period of time, the meat becomes infused with the flavors. This only happens when it is allowed to soak. If I only put the meat in the marinade for a few minutes, I won't taste a hint of flavor once it's cooked. The marinade will more than likely burn [...]

Why rest?

Have you ever played a musical instrument? I took piano lessons when I was in junior high (now that's telling my age).

Do you need new lenses?

Do you ever just have one of those days? You know, where everything seems to be going wrong.  Today was the day. I woke up to a torrential downpour outside and the temperatures were substantially cooler than the past few days.  I'm a spring/summer girl.  I'd already gotten used to the nice short sleeve weather and sunshine, even though it had only been a few days.  How does the song go? "Some days are diamonds, some days are stones..." I woke my daughter up and ventured downstairs to take care of the dog.  As I was placing the dog's bowl before her [...]
