Hope everyone has a great thanksgiving. I'm not cooking this year we are going out for dinner. I'm kind of looking forward to it.
The other news is that I joined match dot com. So I have been busy weeding through the crazies to get to the couple that I have been emailing and went out with for coffee. So far no one special but I will keep you posted on the stories and what happens.
Also yesterday was a good day. Go my paper work for the house to be in my name, sent it in for homesteading, got the paper work notarized to get Joe's miles, got a couple packages in the mail, got my 2009 taxes finally (have to pay) and got another check in the mail.
OHHH and the big thing is that Jennifer won dancing with the stars.
Please I'm begging you please log on to ABC.com and register to vote or call and use your votes to get Jennifer Grey or Kyle to win DWTS. If bristol wins that could be a disaster, just think last week some guy in Wisconsin shot his tv after she made it to the finals imagine what will happen if she wins.
Yesterday my friend Trisha came up from Mankato and we were going to go to the movie but it was so nice out we just went running around. Really we went to lunch that lead to taking photos. I thought it would be fun to have a photo in an alley - however there was a car coming when we were taking photos. It didn't turn around either plus I had my car parked in the alley too. I ended up having to back up down the alley into a drive so the people could get by. So much for our photo shoot.
Sunday I made these crispy treats that are vegan. I wasn't sure what they were going to taste like but they are very very good. Plus they are healthy and only a couple ingredients.
Whole grain crispy brown rice cereal, Brown rice syrup, peanut butter, vegan chocolate chips.
Also my new business week magazine had a big article on CEO's and other powerful people that are vegans. Steve Wynn, Mort Zuckerman, Russell Simmons, and Bill Clinton to name a few. They also mentioned most of them have eaten at the restaurant candle 79 that I ate at in NYC last May. That was so good I ate there twice in one trip.
the recipe says to make sure they cool before you add the chocolate chips - I thought I did but they still melted. Oh well they were good.
I went out twice this week and both times were crazy. I will try to make this short; as the stories are long so hopefully they will make sense.
Tuesday I went out to Crave – west end for happy hour. Long story short is that this guy came up to me and insulted my chopstick skills, tried to look at in my shopping bag (had work out clothes in) and then asked me to go out with him to McDonalds to get cheeseburgers to fatten me up…. I told him I was a vegetarian and walked away. Seriouly you are going to take me to Mc Donalds!
Thursday night I went out to a women’s business expo them went to dinner at Barrio in downtown Minneapolis. We sat next two interesting tables. On small table had 3 ladies that had no clue that there was anyone else in the restaurants. The one lady kept leaning back and coming close to sticking her hair in our food.
The other table had 3 guys and a girl that had been drinking for a while. It turns out the very drunk guy was French. He was totally out of control and wild, unlike any French person I have ever seen. So I was having fun talking to this strange man, I was using some French and little French gestures that I knew would get him going. Then he introduced the other guy as being from Belgium. Well I stopped him right there…I said you will not be ripping on Belgium! Then the guy that was born in Belgium and I chatted for a while. He was interesting. Mean while the French man was dancing and kissing both my friend and I on the cheek…the waiter was trying to control him and his friends finally took him home. I don’t think I have laughed that hard in a while.
I secretly think Joe had a hand in that evening. How could I be seated next to a crazy French man and a Belgium in Minneapolis?
Then I came home after a couple hours out to Ana being sick all over the house the poor girl it was coming out of both ends and she was just shaking like a leaf. Today she is much better but I don’t know what was going on when I was home I just know it took me a long time to clean every room and rug in the house.
Hope everyone go out to vote yesterday. I voted so I can voice my opinion. The tea party is crazy and not sure what is going to happen...not sure about the new speaker of the house...and not sure who our next Governor is going to be.
Also why is Bristol still on dancing with the stars???
One thing I know for sure is that Tarryl Clark need someone to work on her image...meaning hair, clothes and make-up. I'm sorry but that is all part of the way to get votes I don't want anyone looking like that to speak for me.
Speaking of that I went last Friday with my nephew to visit colleges in Minneapolis. We went to Augsburg. Well what a piece of crap that place is not to mention the VP of admissions had on way too short of jeans and they were very wrinkled or very creased. They were talking about basically living your best life thing and finding your passion. I guess that did not include a mirror or iron.
That is all for today...Oh Francoise I'm glad you didn't get stuck in France I was worried about you.
It is getting to be that time of the year for warm drinks. This tea I got in Scotland this summer...it was so cold they were offering sample of it warm. I haven't tried since then so I don't know if it was good cause I was in Scotland and freezing or it actually is. I will keep you posted on it though.
Hot Chocolate made with rice milk-it was my last of the mix from Belgium.
We (my late husband and I) moved to California in December 2008 from Brussels, Belgium. Orginally we are from Minnesota.
I have 7 year old papillion-chihuahua mix named Foxy and in January I add a new puppy mill rescue that is 5 years old named Ana. She has taken up alot of my time.
My Husband was killed in July 2009 now this is the story of what is happening day to day as a young widow trying to find fun and friends again.
