Tuesday Tips

Found some good tips. Its almost time for the snow so lets be ready! :)
The best advice for driving in bad winter weather is not to drive at all, if you can avoid it.
Don't go out until the snow plows and sanding trucks have had a chance to do their work, and allow yourself extra time to reach your destination.
If you must drive in snowy conditions, make sure your car is prepared, and that you know how to handle road conditions.
It's helpful to practice winter driving techniques in a snowy, open parking lot, so you're familiar with how your car handles. Consult your owner's manual for tips specific to your vehicle.
Driving safely on icy roads
Decrease your speed and leave yourself plenty of room to stop. You should allow at least three times more space than usual between you and the car in front of you.
Brake gently to avoid skidding. If your wheels start to lock up, ease off the brake.
Turn on your lights to increase your visibility to other motorists.
Keep your lights and windshield clean.
Use low gears to keep traction, especially on hills.
Don't use cruise control or overdrive on icy roads.
Be especially careful on bridges, overpasses and infrequently traveled roads, which will freeze first. Even at temperatures above freezing, if the conditions are wet, you might encounter ice in shady areas or on exposed roadways like bridges.
Don't pass snow plows and sanding trucks. The drivers have limited visibility, and you're likely to find the road in front of them worse than the road behind.
Don't assume your vehicle can handle all conditions. Even four-wheel and front-wheel drive vehicles can encounter trouble on winter roads.
If your rear wheels skid...

Take your foot off the accelerator.
Steer in the direction you want the front wheels to go. If your rear wheels are sliding left, steer left. If they're sliding right, steer right.
If your rear wheels start sliding the other way as you recover, ease the steering wheel toward that side. You might have to steer left and right a few times to get your vehicle completely under control.
If you have standard brakes, pump them gently.
If you have anti-lock brakes (ABS), do not pump the brakes. Apply steady pressure to the brakes. You will feel the brakes pulse — this is normal.
If your front wheels skid...

Take your foot off the gas and shift to neutral, but don't try to steer immediately.
As the wheels skid sideways, they will slow the vehicle and traction will return. As it does, steer in the direction you want to go. Then put the transmission in "drive" or release the clutch, and accelerate gently.
If you get stuck...

Do not spin your wheels. This will only dig you in deeper.
Turn your wheels from side to side a few times to push snow out of the way.
Use a light touch on the gas, to ease your car out.
Use a shovel to clear snow away from the wheels and the underside of the car.
Pour sand, kitty litter, gravel or salt in the path of the wheels, to help get traction.
Try rocking the vehicle. (Check your owner's manual first — it can damage the transmission on some vehicles.) Shift from forward to reverse, and back again. Each time you're in gear, give a light touch on the gas until the vehicle gets going.
Essential SuppliesBe prepared with a "survival kit" that should always remain in the car. Replenish after use. Essential supplies include:

Working flashlight and extra batteries
Reflective triangles and brightly-colored cloth
First aid kit
Exterior windshield cleaner
Ice scraper and snow brush
Wooden stick matches in a waterproof container
Scissors and string/cord
Non-perishable, high-energy foods like unsalted canned nuts, dried fruits, and hard candy.
Safe driving this snowy season! :)

Today is my 1st Thanksgiving that I am making. :)

I was a little nervous having to worry about what to make or how to make it that its actually going pretty good.
The turkey is all nice and brown, The mashed potatoes are cheesy, garlicly and creamy to the taste, and the rest is left to be opened when Dave and the kids come home from his Pops house from their Thanksgiving. I was so excited about this Thanksgiving then when he left this morning I keep thinking to myself I should be there with him.......but then another part of me says..I wish he would have just stayed here since it was our first thanksgiving together. I dont know. I am enjoying myself with being able to do this all by myself dont know if that sounds weird. Miss my babies right now.

Twas the night before Thanksgiving:
'Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't sleep... I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep. The leftovers beckoned...the dark meat and white, but I fought the temptation with all of my might. Tossing and turning with anticipation, the thought of a snack became infatuation. So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door and gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore. I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes, stuffing with gravy, green beans and tomatoes. I felt myself swelling so plump and so round, till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground. I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky with a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees... Happy eating to all -- pass the cranberries, please.
Hope you enjoyed :)

Whats cooking Wednesday!

Lets see what can I post this week....
My homemade Popcorn chicken bites.
2 or 3 packs of Bonless skinless chicken tenders
2 Eggs
Breadcrumbs (Italian)
Salt (can use Garlic salt for more flavor)
Put oil into a frying pan and put on med heat. Meanwhile cut up the tenders into little bite size pieces. Beat your egg and put the chicken pieces into the egg, then coat them in the breadcrumbs. Put in the pan and flip when the chicken is as brown as you want it. They should be down and if you rip them open they should be moist in the inside and crunchy on the outside. A great side for this is mac and cheese :) Very quick if you want something in a hurry. ENJOY :)

Tuesday Tips

Here is another day of "Tuesday Tips"
I know alot of us love to take pics, I myself love to, so here are some tips on how to make fall pics the best!
For the best fall colors use a slow film speed (ASA 100 or 200 speed film). These provide the best color density of the print films, and also allow you to make crisper enlargements.
If the day is overcast, however, you will need to use a faster speed film (ASA 400 or 800) to allow for the lack of light. If you're looking for professional quality photos, use slide film (Fuji Velvia ASA 50 is recommended by many professional photographers) and a tripod
Don't try to capture everything you see. Pick out something which is interesting or has some visual appeal (a tree, rock, split-rail fence, building, covered bridge, etc.) and frame your picture with it in the foreground (off to one side, not centered). This will add great depth to your photo and provide the beautiful fall foliage with a framework. Panoramas are great, but film never seems to do them justice. Instead try to make each picture tell a story
Early morning and late afternoon provide the most interesting light for fall photos. The interplay of shadow and light can provide interesting depth in your photos. Bright sun is just fine too - shooting into the sun so that trees or leaves are backlit can really make those fall colors glow! Watch out for situations where you have too much light, however. If you frame a picture with too much bright sky, or too much sunlight streaming between fall leaves, that might fool the camera's meter, leaving the rest of your picture too dark and lacking in brilliant color. If you find yourself in this situation, just get in a little closer and cut out some of that extra light. Focus on a section of leaves against a rock wall, for example, rather than the entire tree.
If your fall day is overcast, don't despair - grey days have a way of allowing fall colors to pop out! Just make sure you don't allow your camera to get wet.
If you have a camera which accepts filters, an inexpensive polarizing filter can do wonders for cutting glare on bright days and capture brighter colors in the leaves and sky. An enhancing or intensifying filter is another accessory which will help you get bold photos, particularly when shooting the warm-toned fall colors of yellow, orange and red.
Include visually opposing colors in your photo for dramatic contrasts and more intense color. A bright orange tree will look even brighter when photographed next to a bluish-green evergreen.
Don't be afraid of windy days or rushing streams when taking fall photographs. If you've got a camera with adjustable shutter speeds, try putting it on a tripod and set your shutter speed for 1/2 second or longer - have fun experimenting. This can create a neat blurred effect with water or moving leaves
Early morning is one of the best times to capture the color of fall reflected in a pond or lake as the water is usually still and the light is coming in at a low angle. Try to put something small in the foreground of your photo and focus on that - this will leave the reflection leaving more soft and misty.
Hope these are some helpful tips for you. I will take in to doing this next year :) Have a good fall day.

Thanks Linda

Well there are alot of people that I am Thankful for but I would like to point out particularly. My sister, Linda. She has been there for me my whole life good and bad no matter what the situation is and has never turned her back on me. I appreciate everything she does for me and Thank god she is my big sister.
Here is a poem for you:
Thank you

You've always been there, making sure I was o.k.
The one that helped me be, the kind of person I am today.
I'll never be able to repay you, for all that you have done for me.
Knowing that I'd need someone, when I'd fall and scrape my knee.
You are my big sister, one that I admire most.
I will always be thankful, having a sister like you makes me boast.
Not to mention those times, when boys were boys.
And you were always the first one, to help me regain my poise.
You understand me, like only a sister can.
And when I'm upset and not talking, you always just give me your hand.
You're married, and your life is complete.
But I will always come to you, whenever I feel defeat.
So this is my attempt, at thanking you for what you've done.
Because in my book you'll always be, my Big sister, number one!
Thanks for being there for me!

Tuesday Tips

Enjoy the holidays while staying healthy with these tips
moderation is key. Enjoy the foods you want in moderation. Avoid overeating by choosing a small amount of your favorite foods. This way you can enjoy many dishes, and you won’t feel uncomfortably full later on.
don’t come with an empty stomach. Going to a celebration on an empty stomach will lead you to eating whatever is in front of you. You will also eat more quickly, leaving you feeling full and uncomfortable for the rest of the evening. Instead, eat something light before you go, and you’ll likely be more sensible about what you do eat, and you’ll enjoy it more.
don’t focus on the food. Whatever the occasion, remember the reason you are celebrating. Although food is a part of the celebration, it should not be the main focus. Spend time with your family and friends, and get to know others instead of getting to know the setup of the buffet.
be selective. Don’t spend your calories and fat grams on foods you don’t love. Instead, select the foods you know you enjoy or those that are special to the holiday season.
limit your alcohol intake. Although alcoholic beverages may be low in fat, they can be very high in calories. Alcohol also lowers your inhibitions and may cause you to eat more than you had planned. If you do drink, be aware of how much you consume and how it will affect your eating.
ask for support. Share your goals and new healthy lifestyle with your family and friends. If you know the host or hostess, ask for their support and suggest some healthy food choices. You might even suggest planning an activity that doesn’t involve food, such as taking a walk or building a snowman.
Dont stress out so much but enjoy the holidays with family and friends celebrating the time when Jesus was born!

Friday Funny

Here we go with Funny Friday :) Hope you get some laughs :)
1. Why didn't the turkey want any lunch?
He was already stuffed!
hahahahhahah lol
2. Why do pilgrims pants keep falling down?
Because their belt buckles are on their hats!
3. Why can't you take a turkey to church?
Because they use Fowl language
4. Why do turkeys always go "gobble, gobble"?
Because they never learned good table manners!
Thought this was funny it does have some Rated X Language:
The day before Thanksgiving a little boy heard his mom and dad fighting. The husband said to his wife, "You stupid bitch, you have floppy tits." She wasn't about to be outdone and said, "Well you have a crooked dicks, you bastard."
Well, the little boy heard every word they said. After they were done fighting, he went up to the mom and asked her what bitches and bastards were. She told him that they were people. Then he asked what crooked dicks and floppy tits were. She told him that they were coats and hats. The little boy accepted both answers and went on his way.
The next day, they were getting ready for a huge feast with friends and family. The little boy went up stairs where his dad was shaving. The dad cut himself and said, "Shit!"
Well once again, the boy started asking questions and asked what 'shit' was. The father told him that it was "shaving cream."
The boy accepted this answer and went downstairs where his mom was stuffing a turkey. When the mom cut herself with a knife, she said "F*ck!" The boy once again asked what 'f*ck' was. She told him that it was "stuffing".
About that time, the door bell rang. When the little boy went to answer the door, it was his grandparents. Upon opening the door, the little boy said: "Hi bitches and bastards. Let me take your crooked dicks and floppy tits for you. Dad's upstairs putting shit on his face and mom's in the kitchen f*cking the turkey."
LOL well hope you enjoyed :)

Whats cooking Wednesday :)

Here are recipes for fall :)
Bake at
Apple Pie

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
1/2 cup cold solid vegetable shortening
Ice water
4 1/2 pounds Golden Delicious apples
1 large lemon, juiced
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons milk

Make the Dough: In a food processor, pulse 2 1/2 cups of the flour with the salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Add 8 tablespoons of the butter and the shortening; pulse until the mixture resembles small peas. Add 1/3 cup of ice water and pulse until evenly moistened. Squeeze some of the mixture with your hand; it should come together. If it crumbles, add 1 tablespoon of ice water and pulse again.
Turn the dough out onto a work surface and gently press with the heel of your hand, then gather into a ball with a few quick strokes. Divide in half and form into disks. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or for up to 2 days.
On a lightly floured surface, roll 1 disk into a 13-inch round 1/8 inch thick. Fit the round into a 9-inch glass pie plate and trim the overhang to 1/2 inch. Refrigerate the pie shell. Roll out the second disk into a 12-inch round 1/8 inch thick; transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Meanwhile, Make the Filling: Peel, halve and core the apples, then cut into 3/4-inch wedges and toss with the lemon juice in a large bowl. In a 12-inch skillet, melt the remaining 8 tablespoons of butter over low heat; stir in the brown sugar. Add the apples and turn to coat. Increase the heat to high and cook, turning occasionally, until most of the wedges are tender but not mushy, 15 minutes. Do not overcook.
Immediately scoop the apples and their juices onto a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle the
remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of flour and the cinnamon over them and toss until the flour disappears. Place the baking sheet on a wire rack and let the apples cool to room temperature, 40 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Arrange the apples in the pie shell; drizzle the juices over them. Moisten the pie rim with a wet pastry brush. Center the top crust over the apples and press the rim to seal. Using scissors, trim the top crust to a 1/2-inch overhang, then fold it under and crimp. Dissolve the remaining 1 teaspoon of sugar in the milk and lightly brush the top of the pie. Pierce several holes in the
top of the pie with a fork.
Bake the pie for 25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. If the crust begins to brown too quickly, cover the rim with foil. Reduce the heat to 375 degrees F and bake for 20 minutes longer, or until you can hear the apple pie filling bubbling.
Transfer the apple pie to a wire rack and let cool for at least 1 hour before cutting into wedges and serving.
Yield: 8 servings

Pumpkin Pie

(frozen deep-dish) pie shells
1.5 cup(s)
(canned or fresh) pumpkin puree
1 cup(s)
heavy cream

.75 cup(s)
light brown sugar
.5 cup(s)
whole milk
2 large

1 large
egg yolk
1 tablespoon(s)
maple syrup
1 tablespoon(s)
pumpkin-pie spice
.5 teaspoon(s)

Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
Bake the remaining pie shell for 10 minutes and cool completely on a wire rack.
Stir the remaining ingredients together in a large bowl until smooth. Fill the baked pie shell.
Bake for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees F, and continue to bake until set--about 40 minutes.
Cool completely on a wire rack before serving. Trim away the crimped edge of the thawed pie shell and gently flatten with a rolling pin.
Cut out 15 1½-inch leaf shapes using mini cutters. Arrange on the sheet pan and bake until golden brown. Arrange around cooled pie.
Hope you enjoy them and try them out :)

Tuesday Tips

SO :) Linda thought up this idea of Tuesday tips..So here is mine it just a little one for one thing I found interesting.
1. If silver jewellery gets black apply toothpaste and rub it very well.
2. While whisking egg white, add a pinch of salt for quicker results.
3. Coffee will remain fresh longer in the refrigerator.
4. Get more juice from a citrus fruit by warming it slightly in the oven.
5. Potatoes soaked in salt water for 20 minutes will bake more rapidly.
6. Store curry leaves in silver foil, it will last as much as one month.
7. To prevent boiled potatoes from sticking to the grater, always apply little oil on the grater.
8. For clean storage of radish, remove their tops before putting in the refrigerator.
9. To get rid of the smell of eggs in the cakes, add one tablespoon honey to the cake batter while beating it as it will make the taste better, too!
10. If you want to keep any salad fresh for the evening party, first chill the bowl or tray in which you intend to serve your salad.
11. Use squeezed lemon to get rid of bad smells from fingers after peeling garlic or cleaning
12. To avoid milk from spilling, apply glycerine to the rim of vessel.
13. Before roasting a chicken store in the fridge for 24 hrs for richer flavour.
14. Never use metal containers, foil, or dishes with metal trim in the microwave.
15.To remove the odour from flask or thermos, rinse with curd+pinch of salt.
16. If you wax your ashtrays, ashes won't cling, odours won't linger and they can be wiped cleaned easily with a paper towel or disposable tissue.
17. Substitute of wine in recipes is grape juice.
18. If you keep your candles in the freezer they will last longer and drip less.
19. To prevent sticking of ice trays in the freezer, place a sheet of foil or wax paper under them. 20. If Glasses are stuck together, keep them in the fridge and they will separate easily the next day.
21. Citric fruit rinds will remove grease spots from oven tops.
22. If you want drip-free, long-burning candles, put them in the freezer overnight before burning them.
23. Pour leftover coffee in the soil of your plants. It acts as a good fertiliser.
24. Keep the refrigerator free of odours by placing a tsp. of soda bicarbonate in a corner of the fridge.
25. Oil stain may be removed by rubbing the area with a piece of lime dipped in salt.
26. To prevent bad odour in the refrigerator, dip cotton into vanilla essence and keep in the refrigerator.
27. Keep cutlets coated with breadcrumbs 1 hour in the refrigerator before frying. Take out the cutlets, hold in your palm and press lightly all sides. This way the breadcrumbs will stay put and won't mess up while frying. You will also have a crisy coating.
28. Roll each cucumber in a piece of newspaper while storing in refrigerator - this will remain fresh for a week.
29. Wash stale cabbage with salt, water and few ice cubes. This will regain its freshness and kill germs
Well I think thats it for now...:) Hope you find it interesting! :)

Movie Monday!

So now we have a Movie Monday today! :) The Last movie I watched was....

Princess Diaries

I love that movie I give it 2 thumbs up. I love how they make an ordinary girl find out that she is royalty and she has to find her way thru her fear of making speeches and standing up for herself in different situations....and some situations are like what we experience like when we find out who our friends really are. I myself always imagined myself as a princess when I was younger.
If you like this one you'll love the second one too when she finds a love.
