I Tried a Cherimoya!  Sweet!
Published on Tuesday, March 3, 2009 by This week's adventure eating involved a strange little fruit called a cherimoya, or "custard apple."  Last weekend I found myself near a Harris Teeter with an hour on my hands before having to pick up my daughter.  In search of White Chocolate Peanut butter (yet to be found!), I began my trek through this eclectic grocery store.  That is where I found the cher...
It’s a Man’s World!
Published on Saturday, February 28, 2009 by   I have been browsing through a 1962 book of household hints, and realized quickly that it is a man's world.  Or at least it used to be.  If you are a man, you will thoroughly enjoy these book quotes.  If you are a woman, well....  Hubby has uses for the vacuum cleaner too... the car, the workshop, etc. Men are often ashamed of women who use no lips...
Flying Toilets!
Published on Friday, February 27, 2009 by This was my first view coming into work today.  Three portable toilets flying through the air.  One would hope they checked for occupancy before sending them sailing.  And pity the poor guy who drives underneath them! Today is going to be a GOOD DAY.  After all, I saw flying toilets! ...
Easy Recipe for Pho Soup – Pho-Abulous!
Published on Monday, February 23, 2009 by How many times have you seen Tony Bourdain on "No Reservations" eat noodle soup for breakfast - and completely rave about it?  I would say about a million for me.  (Love that guy!)   A year ago I was on the road and saw a restaurant named, "Pho '79."  Pho!  That is THE soup Tony eats!  So I moved my bravery switch up a notch and stopped in.  And thank goodnes...
Flippin’ Girl Scout Cookies!
Published on Monday, February 23, 2009 by No, not tossing cookies... FLIPPING cookies!  I know, I know... just read on.  We have a "new guy" at work who just turned 21 last week.  He is the baby of us all, lovingly nicknamed "Runt" by one of my co-workers.  As you probably know, it is Girl Scout Cookie time, so I brought my daughter's form in to work.  People were asking for it, honest!  So Runt g...
CONTEST: Win a Target Gift Card
Published on Saturday, February 14, 2009 by I came across this box of tea in a local market.  It is just screaming for a caption contest, don't you think?  Please post your caption in a comment.  This caption contest runs until the end of February.  The judging is extremely scientific.  I will read the captions to my teenage boys and make a note of how hard they laugh.  The best caption wins a $30...
Mother Nature’s Surprise
Published on Thursday, February 12, 2009 by Today we had up to 40 mph winds.  My only worry was how seriously huge my hair was getting by the end of the day.  But when I got home, I found there was a bit more to think about.  Let's see.  Insurance. Deductible. I could never afford to replace a shed. Cutting up a tree.  DEDUCTIBLE...  Did I mention cutting up a tree? Hmmm, and about the giant HOLE going t...
New Soft Drink in India
Published on Thursday, February 12, 2009 by [caption id="" align="alignleft" width="269" caption="Mooove Over, I Gotta Go!"][/caption] You just can't make this stuff up.  A new drink is in the works in India. The good news?  It contains no toxins, will be tasty, and won't even taste like urine!  You guessed it.  Well, maybe not.  The new soft drink is made out of cow urine.  And healthful herbs, of ...
Asian Market, Part 2
Published on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 by I promised more pictures of the International Market, so here is the first.  Walking into a place like this makes you realize how little we know about the many fruits and vegetables that are grown around the world.  Take a peek at the banana flowers in the picture.  These were bigger than my hand and very fat.  I looked up banana flower preparation on the int...
Asian Market Adventure
Published on Friday, February 6, 2009 by If you have an Asian market near you, I highly recommend you visit it with a little money in your pocket... and with an open mind.  Yesterday my mother and I went to a new "Fresh Market - International Grocery" that recently opened just a few miles away.  When I walked through the doors, I heard the angels singing.  Never in my life have I seen such an amazing sel...
