China needs more things to do

Apparently a big trend on a social networking site in China is to post pictures of your dog in pantyhose.  Poor dogs. Even I have standards about what I will put on animals for my amusement.

For Like Ever

I have been looking for the perfect recipe program for years. I hate having all the paper and links can be taken down, so I keep trying out program after program. After many trial and major errors I think I may have finally found the one that works well for me since it can save information from the web, take pictures of recipes you have around the house, or simple write down the notes. It's called Evernote and there are multiple ways to tag each item for easy searching and it just is so easy that any other way just seems complicated in comparison. It's become my new favorite app for my iPad, my go to on my computer and a way for me to not drag around any one's business card (you can just snap a picture and it saves the information).  You can share your notes/recipes via social media, email or a special URL (click here for a delicious Rosemary-Rosé drink recipe) and it is a multitasker in that it does way more then just collect recipes. I have been using it for months now and I can't stop using it which I think that is a pretty good sign of a good program. Check it out, it's free and that is just one of the best parts.



And yes I know it's been around for awhile, but sometimes I take my time to really make sure that I like a program.

Must

This week actually makes last week look super awesome, but the good news is it's Friday so hopefully the weekend will be looking up and people will suck a little less. I am still in the process of cleaning out my closet (yes, really) and the eBay updates have been daily. I decided to go through my closet again and found even more things that need to go. At least this leads me to the bright spot of the week that I have a little extra cash to spend on shoes clothes books booze. Yay.

Here is to a fantastic, relaxing weekend.

Wallbanger

I have been meaning to read this book for awhile since I loved the Redhead series by Alice Clayton (and can't wait for the third book to come out in December) and I wish I hadn't waited so long. What it comes down to is if you are looking to move past 50 Shades of Grey into a more entertaining, well written book, but still a little smuttiness you need to read this book. Simply fun reading.

Febreze Stick and Refresh

The other day I was putting something in the kitchen garbage and once it was opened it stunk so bad that the BF declared it smelled like a diaper. Ugh. So I went and bought the Febreze stick and refresh. I actually bought two. One for the kitchen garbage and one for the curb garbage container. Not only does it work like a charm, but now the air smells like the ocean breeze and not a dirty diaper.

Perfect Summer Sandal

The last few weeks have been amazing here in SoCal and have me looking for my annual summer sandal that I live in around the house and running errands. I think that I have found it at Nordstrom and for $49.95 it is the perfect price as well. Perfect basic.

Facebook Home

In case you didn't know Facebook came out with a phone thingy, sort of and stuff. You can read the review of the information here, but really I just want my iPhone Facebook app to work. Possible?



Rehab Addict

It's like my dream job, but without the headache and the actual work. This is a fantastic "reality" show that chronicles Nicole Curtis in her adventures in rehabbing old homes to their former glory. Nothing quite gives you that fantastic feeling like discovering an amazing floor or hidden gem behind a false wall.

What a Tart!



I was recently going through some of my favorite food blogs to help me get some new ideas for meatless Monday since the BF and I are making an effort to really improve our health. I would have no problem eating like this all the time if it was just me, but to keep the BF interested I need to try new things to keep him into it. Needless to say I was super excited when I found this French Onion Tart. As a lover of French onion soup this seemed like a perfect Monday night dinner for both of us. I happened to have all the ingredients on hand and not only is it simple, but paired with a salad and soup it is a perfect dinner.

I didn't make any changes, but I did use the mushroom broth to keep it veg and made sure that I really cooked down the onions to make it easier to eat with a fork. The only thing I would recommend that you make sure you do is to pre-bake the crust or you risk a dough like crust. Needless to say it turned out delicious and is a fantastic meatless Monday meal or would even be a perfect tart for brunch.
