Just a few rambling thoughts and crafts from a mind that is full of both. I am talented in my mind but regularly run full throttle into the wall of procrastination. I have raised procrastination to an art form. A friend once told me I have a BS in BS and a minor in excuse making. If there is anyway to get out of doing my best, I will do my best to get out of it. Welcome to my saburban life. : ).. Lol.

Greek Quesadillas? Count me in!

I love Mediterranean dishes..
Greek Nachos..  Yum!
Greek Gyros.. Delicious!
Greek Salads..  Yes Please!

And now?
Greek Quesadillas...
Most definitely!

Been doing a cooking group with a couple
guys at work and we made these
doozies last week.

They were super easy to make
and turned out great!
Making me hungry today..

It's Onnnn Like Donkey Kong!

The KC Royals are back in town.
Opening Day was Sunday.
This is our crowd..
Our opponents?
The Mets.
The same Mets we beat to win the World Series.
Ha Ha!!
Today's game?
Our Royals get their World Series Rings.
I hope they have the ceremony
60' 6" from home plate.
Why is that?
I was right there with Moose.
Get 'em!!
Wanna throw close?
Fine!  No problem.
Throw at our head?
If we have a problem with it,
we can meet him 60' 6" away.
It's on like Donkey Kong.

I'm torn between wanting to torture him,
holding him down and shaving his
stupid "Thor" hairdo,
to wanting every Royals fan to don blond
wigs and raise one of these
"Thor Hammers" every time that "she"
is out on the field.
We've got your "hammer" right here Thor.

However, in the spirit of sportsmanship..
I hope that we just ignore this little
punk and act like, "Noah who?"

Either way?
It's on like Donkey Kong.
Enjoy your view of the ring ceremony
from the sidelines jerk!
: p..
It works.
Go Royals!!

Pudding Cheese? Minnow Cheese? Oooh.. Pimento Cheese.. Sheesh..

I love Pimento Cheese..
Love it on celery..
Love it on bread with lettuce..
Love it in general..
I hate the price of it in stores..
Little container..
BIG price..

We have some clients who work five
days a week that are sick to death
of lunch meat sandwiches..
I can't say I blame them at all..
I stepped up and decided to
start making them alternative lunches..

Yesterday I made Pimento Cheese..
One co-worker asked, "Pudding Cheese?"
while another person asked, "Minnow Cheese?"
Lol.  Yup..  Pudding and Minnows..
Yummy!  : )..

I found an easy little recipe online
from Martha Stewart, and it is
fantastic!  Soooo much
better than the gooey mess you get
in the stores, and soooo much
more for bang for your buck..

I will never have to buy store made
Pimento Cheese again..

My Blog's Promise..

I love Pinterest and Facebook..
They lead me to websites and recipes that
I normally wouldn't find on my own..
I follow a Facebook page called
"Delish" that definitely
has some delicious recipes on it..
Including this..
Looks sooo good!
It's Lemon Butter Garlic Shrimp with
Angel Hair Pasta and can be
found by clicking here..

Crazy Times For Sure!

It's been crazy here lately.
Crazy busy.
Crazy Crazy Crazy.
Royals Crazy for a while.
Go Royals!
After a fantastic playoff run,
our guys won the crown.
Kansas City and the surrounding
areas went Royally crazy.
How crazy you say?

Yup!  That crazy!
I grew up on the St. Louis Cardinal side of Missouri
but I missed getting to be IN the city when
our team won.  This time?  I was right there
in the thick of things!
Right here! 
Right behind these people..
Got to see Salvy riding by..
Had a phenomenal time!
It was crazy to be a part of something
so amazing and special!
They said there were 800,000 people there.
I think there were 800,000 at the Union Station
Royals Rally which is in the top pics..
I believe there were over 1 million
fans there that day - with plenty more along
the parade route.
Click HERE for the link to the GoPro camera
on Moustakis' truck that day.
Crazy I say.
Wore me out until today.
Go Royals!

Lovin' this song..

Finally - tonight is my last night at my current job.
I'm switching shifts with a co-worker so they can take their
kiddos trick or treating and to a chili cook off with family.
Got Game 4 going on with our Kansas City Royals
and the NY Mets.  After that first pitch last night?
I'm not a fan of Cinderfella.
Want to move KC off the plate?
Show us who you think is boss?
Throw the ball at our head and it's on like donkey kong.
Cinnabon better watch out.
There might be a Moose Stampede heading his way.
Got another group home job that starts early in the morning.
This one is only 3 miles from my house.  : )..
Sounds great to me!
Lets get this evening going!
Here's a little Selena Gomez to get it started.

Beware of things that shine..

After a frustrating stint at my last job,
I finally found another one that had better pay,
better benefits and better hours.
However, it's been like playing a wicked game of Twister.
I know my body parts and I know my colors,
however, it took a while to finally be able to put it all on the playing board.
Now?  Now they have added people with sharp, pointy sticks
to the mix, another long, hard, cranky, crabby week on the phones,
followed by what should be, another long, intensive
week of training.
Thinking about walking away and going back to my former
job that now has the evening shift positions open that I wanted..
Until then?  Let's enjoy something fun..
