Garden Update

I planted my garden almost 2 weeks ago and so far everything but my peppers is beginning to come up. I have broccoli, spinach, asparagus, snow peas, red onions, chives, cucumbers, and tomatoes. Hopefully in the next few days we will see the hot peppers and bell peppers make an appearance.

Have you seen the Eggies advertised on tv? For those who might not have seen them, they are the plastic containers that you crack an egg in to and it will produce a perfectly boiled egg. Well, I decided I wanted to try them. Unfortunately, they were not as easy to use as they appeared.

First, you have to crack an egg and get it to pour in to an opening the size of a quarter. If you don't do it just right, the egg ends up on the counter instead of inside the Eggie. Second, you have to oil the inside of the Eggie so the boiled egg will come out easy when cooked. That does work, but when the egg cooks, the oil gives the egg white a very rubbery texture.

All in all, it took twice as long to make boiled eggs using the Eggie and they didn't taste as good.

Monopoly Hotels

I have found a new game for my iPhone called Monopoly Hotels. It is very addictive. You buy and build hotels just like the board game. You earn your money from the rent and from money that falls from the sky. I even have hubby hooked.

Time Flies

I didn't realize how long it has been since I blogged. It seems like time is flying by these days. So here is a quick catch up since my last blog.

We spent Superbowl Sunday at a friend house. We made enough food to feed an army. We had ribs, steaks, queso, sweet potato, and jalapeƱo poppers. We all gather at his house and then we all chip in to do the cooking. It is always a blast.

Then on Tuesday, I was rear ended on my way home from work. The guy who hit me was going about 60, so I have spent the last several days recovering from the accident. I was very lucky and only received a large bump on the head. Now I just need to see what they are going to do with my poor car, which didn't fare quite as well.
