Im Back in the Eworld FINALLLLLLY!!!!! :)

Posted Saturday, February 06, 2010

Hi Sweets! I have been offline (except via my phone) for the last 4 months and OMG!!! I thought I was gonna DIE! But as of 2 days ago I'm back online with a brand new laptop and Im so Excited!! Ive been up until 2am almost every morning playing and catching up!

So! lets see...whats new here - we have been buried under snow for the last 2 months - we just had a new storm roll through on Friday and there is another coming on Tuesday - sheesh! They have taken 2 days of the kids spring break (((UGH)))) I hate it when they do that! I wish they would just let them make it up on Saturday or take it off their summer break. We are actually going on vacation this year!

I've become completely addicted to the movie Julie and Julia. I rented it 3 times then bought it when I got paid and its pretty much been going non stop on my dvd for weeks. I just put the settings on repeat. The kids know it- line for line! LOL! So Roman - the 8 year old - says to me last week "mom, if butter is so bad for you how did Julia live to be 92 and Paul 94?" :) So I had to think for a second b/c im the one preaching to not eat so much butter - but what I realized is that we dont eat butter - we eat margerine - which is only a couple of molecules away from being plastic. So I've started a new 'real food' campaign in my house - no more rubber or plastic food!

And in that spirit I thought I'd share one of the real recipes that my kids LOVE they would absolutely eat it 7 days a week! I've been making it for 10 years and its the best broccoli and cheese on the planet - no plastic butter or rubber cheese - its all real and all in the microwave! DE-LISH!

Ingredients: 2 bags broccoli Florettes
1 stick butter
1 large bag colby/jack cheese

-put 1 bag of broccoli into a casserole dish/slice butter up on top of it/ then add the 2nd bag of broccoli on top
-cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 10 minutes/let set for 2 minutes when finished
-drain water from broccoli(very important)
-toss in 3/4 bag of cheese - mix it in well then top with the remaining 1/4 bag of cheese
-re-cover with the plastic wrap and microwave another 10 minutes
(it will be super hot when its finished to let is set for a couple minutes)

By the way...if there are any Julie and Julia fans in the house - I found the recipe for the delicious looking bruchetta that Julie fixes for herself and Eric the night she decides to actually start a blog. You can see the recipe here!

AND I just bought Julia Childs book 'My life in France' last weekend and so far it's a GREAT read!

...and just for fun - and Valentines Day...look at thes adorable hearts I've been making! I doing homemade Valentines this year and these little cuties will be the front! If you crochet - this is for you - they take less than 2 minutes to create! Ive made all size and with all types of yarn!

Greeting for the day!!

I am new to this spot. I found loads of useful information here. I would also like to contribute some thing for this community. I would like to share some [url=]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you need to know how to lose 10 lb in a week, you are believably not seeing for a standard diet and exercise plan. You can lose weight with a regular diet and work out plan, However this involves a lot of time doing intensive cardio works out and sticking with a strict diet. Here I will outline the exact steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a week.

1. Stay away from all deep-fried nutrients for the week
2. Drink an 8oz glass of grapefruit with breakfast each day. (this speeds up your metabolism)
3. Consume average portions (stop taking when you are full)
4. Instead of eating 3 large a meals a day, eat 5-6 smaller meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Do not eat anything after 9pm. When you eat that late your body does not burn off the calories.
6. Get plenty of sleep every night. Not having enough rest has been proved to be a major factor to the body putting up excess fat.
7. Utilise a body/colon cleanse for the 7 days. This will get rid of excessive weight stored around the tummy area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that cause you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I suggest you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is tested to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those people who need to burn fat quickly, avoid alcoholic beverage.

You recognize, people always manufacture comments when anything is predicted to happen in 2012, like “obviously that is if the age is hush here.” You do realize that the Mayans prognosticate the creation will end on Dec. 21 (or 23rd)? So in all distinct possibility if anything is affluent to take place in 2012 there is only the slimmest possibility that the everybody hand down have ended before it happens.
