Rainy Day


No, it wasn’t rainy today, but it was last week.  I took this picture last Monday when I walked to Whole Foods after my job interview had been postponed.  At first I thought it was going to be too rainy to walk over there, but it wasn’t bad at all, because my umbrella kept me dry.  There were lots of people out that day, using their umbrellas, which surprised me.  It seems like the rain would have kept them in.

I spent an hour (two?) in Whole Foods, which is the longest I’ve spent in one before.  I looked at everything, and I mean everything.  It was fantastic.  Then I bought ingredients for a Mexican fiesta and headed back home.

It was rainy and gloomy outside, yet very beautiful.  It smelled like spring… like rain drops and lilacs.  It just seemed so perfect out, I had to snap a picture.

I wish today would have been as lovely, but it wasn’t.  Today was the first bad day I’ve had in Chicago.  A bad day at work ruins your whole day, unfortunately.  I’m in a funk and there’s no coming out of it.  I’m hoping for better days there in the future.  I think I have to develop a tougher shell if I’m going to make it in Chicago, and not let things bother me so much.

I’m feeling homesick, too.  I miss my mom, dad and sisters something fierce.

So anyway, I was going to write about my first Cubs game, but I’m not feeling it.  I think I’ll just bake some brownies, drink some chardonnay, and throw myself a little pity party.

I hope your day was better than mine!…

Growing a Garden and a Family Too

How to Plan a Garden to Feed a Family

One of the best ways to combine both gardening and parenting tasks effectively is to develop or improve those time-management skills and by all means, put them to use. Keep everything as organized as possible, from garden and household chores to family activities and events. Designate specific days for certain tasks. For instance, clean the house on Friday, hang out with the kids on Saturday, and weed the garden on Sunday. Regardless of what the kids think, you’re not a superhero. It’s perfectly ok to enlist the help of others, especially your fellow family members. Have the older kids pitch in to help the younger ones. Take turns rotating household and gardening chores. Encourage teamwork. For those of you that dislike a particular chore, such as washing dishes, perhaps someone else in the house doesn’t mind. Swap out these types of chores with those that others in the house don’t like to make productivity faster and easier, and perhaps more fun. Use your creativity to make these things fun. For instance, reward the kids for a job well done. Take them out for ice-cream. Give the little ones flashy stickers.

Make family time fun time by spending time together outdoors. In fact, why not consider gardening together. Grow a vegetable garden. Nothing brings a family together quite like a good, healthy meal, especially one made with freshly grown vegetables from your family’s garden. You can design your garden to suit the needs of your family or adapt an existing garden to your family’s lifestyle and interests. For instance, provide a place for the kids to play, the dog to lounge, and so on. Involve the kids. Consider letting them grow a garden of their own. They love to play in dirt anyway. This also gives you the opportunity to share one of your favorite pastimes with them and teach them all about connecting with nature. Let them choose their own plants and design their own garden space. If you have younger children and don’t have anyone to occupy their time while you’re in the garden, there are a few things you could try. For instance, keep the play area near the garden so the kids stay within easy view. Take advantage of nap time. Work on gardening chores while the kids are sleeping. This also works for household tasks as well, provided they’re quiet. Bring the play pen outdoors. This helped me greatly when my kids were small. Not only do they stay inbounds while you work in the garden, but they can also enjoy the outdoors with you. Just be sure to keep them in the shade.

Finding time to enjoy your favorite pastime while making time for your family doesn’t need to be a frustrating experience. All it takes is a little creativity to combine your responsibilities into fun-filled family activities. The memories you cultivate will last a lifetime!…

5 Ways to Garden Together as a Family - FineGardening

Gardening with Your Preschooler

5 Ways to Garden Together as a Family - FineGardening

Preschoolers are busy soaking up information, processing it, and applying it to their daily lives and most love being outside and playing in the dirt. So, why not spend a little time gardening with them? It is a great learning opportunity and does not require a ton of knowledge. A child’s wonder never ceases when it comes to nature and given just a little bit of information, they will take off and learn more than you would ever imagine. Gardening with your preschooler teaches them about where their food comes from and how it is created. It shows them the importance of the soil, sun, and water. And most importantly, they get to play in the dirt and spend quality time with you! Here are some tips for successfully gardening with your preschooler.

Make Your Plan. The most important thing to remember is that you will probably end up doing the most work on your garden, so plan accordingly. You’ll want to pick easy to grow plants but also something the child will be interested in growing and later eating. Sunflowers are fairly easy, fast growing, and beautiful. Peas and beans come in many varieties and are bush or climbing. Tomatoes are hard to start from seed but a purchased plant tends to be fairly hardy and produces many fruits. Also, take into consideration any size constraints. Some plants grow well in containers and would be ideal for growing on a small deck or patio. Other plants, such as strawberries, can be grown in hanging baskets. Contact your local garden center for help picking out which plants will grow best in your area as well as for ideal planting times.

Stick to the Basics. Preschoolers, although interested and excited by everything, still have a limited attention span, so the details are not that important in the beginning. They really just need the basics to start and will most certainly follow up with hundreds of questions. Start very generally by explaining how the seed needs soil, water, and sun to make it healthy and help to grow big and strong, just like we do.

As you see the various wildlife while working with your plants, you can explain how each has a connection to the plants. Some animals are helpful, while others can be harmful. Bees collect pollen from the flowers on the plant to help pollinate and produce the fruits and vegetables that you eat. Spiders eat some of the bugs that would otherwise eat your plant. Worms help enrich the soil. At every turn, there will be an opportunity to teach your preschooler. But, do not be concerned about getting to every detail. Children at this age are so full of questions, that they will determine the path of the conversation with their questions and observations.

Be Flexible and Have Fun! The experience may not go as perfectly and smoothly as you had in mind so try to just go with the flow. Do not be afraid to fail. The plants may not grow and if that’s the case you can try again, try something different, or if nothing else, take them to a local farmer’s market or pick-your-own farm. They can learn just as well by seeing the local producers with their fresh fruits and veggies or by picking their own blueberries. Failure to grow your own plants can be a lesson in how much work and knowledge it can take to put food on the table.

Cater the experience to your preschooler’s interests. My son usually ends up digging a hole nearby in search of buried treasure, while I do the weeding and pruning. But, he loves picking the vegetables, sometimes before they are really ready, watering, and looking for the first hint of green making its way out of the soil. We plant all kinds of stuff and I let him participate in the parts that interest him. Preschoolers learn much more when the experience is fun and they will be just as excited to grow, pick, and eat one fruit or vegetable as they would be with a whole garden.…

Create and upload quality content

Now that you have set up your marketing network by linking your account to social media, it is time to start uploading quality content. Instagram is a harsh environment; you have to invest one hundred percent of your time and effort to succeed. Quality content on Instagram means that you have to pay attention to details. You have to make photos of excellent quality, and you have to learn about editing.

 

When you acquire these skills, start uploading business-related pictures. The visual aspect is the most important parameter of good marketing on Instagram. You present your business with these pictures, be sure they’re top-quality.

Hells Kitchen

Last night I had a monthly dinner for The Little Black Dress Club and we headed to Hells Kitchen in Minneapolis for some music, drinks and dinner. I love going to the dinners for the The Little Black Dress Club because I always meet new people, last night I knew four of the six and it was so great meeting Rita and Laura. Everyone has such an interesting story and we always have a wide variety of ages. We had from 25 to 60 at dinner and we had great conversation and were laughing almost the whole night. We even had a few people come up to us and ask us what we were doing to have so much fun.

I had a Foxy Fosse martini that has ginger infused vodka and a basil lemonade, it was delicious. It had that nice bite of ginger but the basil lemonade was not too sweet, it would be great during the summer.

For my entree I had the Ham and Pear Crisp which Hell’s Kitchen is famous for, 4 of us ended up getting the same thing and we all loved it.

Here is the group from last night- Laura, Christine, Michelle, me, Rita and Kristina. Such a great group of ladies…

Swap out these types of chores with those that others in the house don’t like to make productivity faster and easier, and perhaps more fun. Use your creativity to make these things fun. For instance, reward the kids for a job well done. Take them out for ice-cream. Give the little ones flashy stickers.

Make family time fun time by spending time together outdoors. In fact, why not consider gardening together. Grow a vegetable garden. Nothing brings a family together quite like a good, healthy meal, especially one made with freshly grown vegetables from your family’s garden. You can design your garden to suit the needs of your family or adapt an existing garden to your family’s lifestyle and interests. For instance, provide a place for the kids to play, the dog to lounge, and so on. Involve the kids. Consider letting them grow a garden of their own. They love to play in dirt anyway. This also gives you the opportunity to share one of your favorite pastimes with them and teach them all about connecting with nature. Let them choose their own plants and design their own garden space. If you have younger children and don’t have anyone to occupy their time while you’re in the garden, there are a few things you could try. For instance, keep the play area near the garden so the kids stay within easy view. Take advantage of nap time. Work on gardening chores while the kids are sleeping. This also works for household tasks as well, provided they’re quiet. Bring the play pen outdoors. This helped me greatly when my kids were small. Not only do they stay inbounds while you work in the garden, but they can also enjoy the outdoors with you. Just be sure to keep them in the shade.

Finding time to enjoy your favorite pastime while making time for your family doesn’t need to be a frustrating experience. All it takes is a little creativity to combine your responsibilities into fun-filled family activities. The memories you cultivate will last a lifetime!…

There Is Money To Be Had In Those Old Duck Decoys
December 7, 2020

Using a decoy while hunting is a idea that has been around for an extremely long time. But in the 1800s what we know think of as being a decoy began to become more popular as the need to earn a living became a driving factor for a huge number of people and many of them turned to hunting to provide that income. For their hunting to be successful the hunters needed every advantage they could have and so was born what we know think of as Old duck decoys.

Many of the first decoys made were very simple in their construction. Many were nothing more than crudely carved hunks of wood with a head like attachment that had been painted in dull colors. The wood needed to be dull because ducks were found to be almost suspicious of anything too brightly colored in the water when they flew over or came into land.

Although decoys were produced in large numbers in the 1800s and posted out across the country, a just as large quantity of decoys were hand produced by the hunters that used them themselves. Decoys are used to bring the ducks into land near the edges of bodies of water, making them easier to aim at. Although shooting was the most effective method, the use of bows and arrows was also an efficient method of shooting. However using a bow needed the ducks to be nearer to the hunter.

Many of the old decoys made from the traditional wood were broken or sold for horribly small sums of wood when decoys produced from plastic started to become more popular. Because they were made from wood, the old fashioned decoys were a lot heavier and were hard to carry around in the bigger numbers that were often required.

Decoys can be linked to geographical area by the manner in which they have been carved and with the species of ducks they have been produced to represent. In harder times when hunters were forced through lack of funds to carve their own, they often copied the decoys that were already in use in their area or tried to mimic the birds they had first hand knowledge of from their own hunting experiences.

As old duck decoys become harder to find, especially those made from traditional wood, they have started to become more valuable. Those that exhibit quality craftsmanship only add to their potential value. A decoy that has been made to have a hollow body is also quite valuable as these were considered to be a challenge to make although they were very popular with hunters. A decoy in reasonable condition with a good amount of age to it is becoming harder to come across and this only adds to the value even more. Because decoys have become collectible many decoys are being kept in families and handed down from one generation to the next.

For some, decoys that have been constructed from white cedar are thought to be some of the better decoys to have. White cedar is a wood that has been found to last a good length of time and floats better in the water. The wood does not deteriorate as quickly as some other woods and when painted, it keeps its paint extremely well.

My Mother's Flower Garden
December 1, 2020

My spade cuts deep in dirt,
A narrow swath of adventure,
Turning up wet, juicy worms,
Plump with soil, squiggling
Quickly back into the dark, rich loam.

With shovel in hand,
I turn the clumps of sod,
Shake grass free of dirt.
And toss it aside, as,
With straight edges and curves

I create a monument to
My mother’s love of all
Growing things, tenderly
Transplanting her daffodils
Deep in the warm, waiting earth,

Warm like she was, prepared to shield,
Nurture the potential beauty in these bulbs
The way she shielded, nurtured, fed
The potential she saw in all of us.

She, like “Mother Earth” herself,
Was a most amazing teacher.
With wisdom, seemingly beyond
Her tender years, she schooled us

In forgiveness, generosity of spirit,
In “loving others as ourselves,” in
Golden words from the “Good Book”
And how to pray from the heart.

Caring, giving, loving hands,
Those same loving hands
That turned and tilled the soil,
Touched us with kindness, with pride.

Her arms, those same arms
That joyfully tended her flowers,
Those tender arms enfolded us, her
Hugs a haven for many of life’s hurts.

Mom’s shoulders could bear
The weight of the world,
Of many worlds, and often did,
Her tears a balm for those we wept.

She seldom told a fairy tale.
Her favorite stories were family tales.
But her gift for story telling
Fed my love of written words.

With smiles, imagination and sweat
She could lay a path to beauty, and
This was her legacy, her gift to me as
I make a nest of dirt for another bulb.

How to Teach Children about Internet Safety
July 26, 2020

Internet and device security threats regardless of age. Children users are vulnerable to cyber attacks. Therefore, it is important for parents to chat with their children, about the safety of surfing the internet.

The purpose of this guide is to invite adults, especially parents, to play a greater role in supervising and protecting your children, younger siblings or nieces when surfing the internet, especially when using social media (social media).

Start early

Children are now growing up in the online world. Take your time to introduce the basics of privacy and security so they understand and differentiate between what is safe and what is not.

Stay in control

Naturally, children have a high curiosity and will try many things as they get older. You can download applications or activate features that function as Parental Control on smartphones, tablets, laptops, and internet connections.

This method can filter and block inappropriate content, while controlling how much time children spend while surfing online.

Give limits

Remind children of the time they can spend surfing online, including exploring websites, playing in various applications, playing games, and exchanging messages.

Basically, ‘don’t do anything online that you don’t do yourself’. It’s important to remind children that anyone can see our social media profiles, post content that is difficult to delete, and leave a digital footprint.

Be positive

The internet is a complete resource for children to learn. Encourage children to discuss what websites they like to access, and what activities they do there.

Realistic

Understand that sometimes children accidentally open inappropriate content and they can report it directly to you.

Make a deal

Choose the right time to convey the message and the rules that you make. The first day children get a smartphone or tablet, is the most appropriate moment to provide guidance on online activities that they can do.

Responsible

The responsibility of adults and parents is to protect children, including protection in the online world. When your child is old enough, make sure you stay friends and follow his social media. Surely there will be rejection in the beginning. But, make this one of the requirements so they can get internet access.

Consistent

Follow the agreed rules. That is, no one can open a smartphone, laptop or tablet, including not allowed to send electronic messages while having breakfast or dinner together. Or if forced to do it, explain to children, some rules can be applied differently to adults.…

The Perfect 3
June 20, 2020

Pitch Perfect 3 | Own & Watch Pitch Perfect 3 | Universal Pictures

I hope you don’t have plans this Saturday afternoon.  Barbecue?  Going to the lake?  Birthday party?  Cancel it.

You can party at home while watching The Perfect 3 on Cooking Channel.  The host is Kelsey Nixon, the guest star is me.

The show airs this Saturday, May 26, at 2:30 PM Eastern. I think I’m only on for a few minutes towards the end of the show. I won a recipe contest a few months ago to appear on the show with Kelsey and make my winning recipe – Golden Finocchio Sausage White Pizza.

It’s a really good pizza!  I wish I had some right now.  The pizza dough is made from bread flour, whole wheat flour and cornmeal; the cornmeal makes the crust nice and crispy.  This is a white pizza recipe, so I used ricotta and mozzarella cheese for the toppings, along with Italian sausage, baby golden tomatoes, caramelized fennel & onions, lemon zest and fresh basil.

You must watch the show so you know all of the secrets of this great pizza.  Come on, it’ll be fun.  You can invite your friends over, have some pizza, have some wine, and watch me be dorky on television.  I wish I had a web cam so I could watch it with my folks back home.  Hmm maybe I could order one and have it shipped before Saturday…

This show was a lot more relaxed than Ultimate Recipe Showdown.  There was no competition, interviews, or $25,000 on the line.  Cooking Channel flew me to New York City for a day to film.  The studio wasn’t in Chelsea Market where Food Network and Cooking Channel is located; it was a smaller studio located in lower Manhattan.

I relaxed in the green room and chatted with the producers and Kelsey for a little while. Kelsey is very sweet and down to earth. I actually met her a few years ago on another trip to New York City. True story, I just went back and read that post, and the picture of Eric with pulled pork in his mouth made me lol.

Anyway, Kelsey remembered me from that trip and asked about my blog!  I was flattered.  She’s a busy woman with several shows and food gigs.  She’s also very tiny.  She’s the shortest, smallest, cutest little woman that you ever did see.

This is a picture of me admiring her.

I was pretty nervous about the filming, but it all went smoothly.  And fast!  We really only filmed for a few minutes and… we didn’t actually make my pizza.  The Cooking Channel test kitchen had already prepared the pizza and measured out the ingredients for us to assemble another one on camera.
Before I knew it, it was all over and time to go home. The show was easy, relaxed, and a lot of fun. Thank you to Cooking Channel for picking my recipe in their contest!

Speaking of Cooking Channel, I now get to watch it in Chicago!  My TV is always on Cooking Channel – I love it.  There’s always something on that I want to watch.  I love watching Nigella, Giada, Kelsey, T Flo, Laura Calder, Debi Mazar & Gabriele Corcos, Unique Sweets & Eats, and my friend Brigitte Nguyen.  There’s only one show/host I don’t care for, and if you watch Cooking Channel, I bet you know who.

What’s your favorite show on Cooking Channel?…

Bin Wine Bar
June 16, 2020

BIN1301 DC - HomeI wanted to give Jenna and Beka their compliments in a separate post. But I also wanted to give Bin Wine War its props. Bin has only been open a few months and I knew we wanted to try it for happy hour. Bin is female owned and focuses on small plates and a unique wine list.

I got there a few minutes before Jenna and Beka arrived and spent some time perusing the wine list and small plates. I decided on a Makulu Pinotage from South Africa for a glass of wine. The pinotage was fruity but had a nice full flavor, I would order this again.

When the girls got there we opted on a cheese plate and a meat plate to share among the three of us

And we coudn’t forget dessert, and heavenly it was. 3 homemade butterscotch chocolate chip cookies and a HUGE truffle.

I will be visiting again shortly! We had good wine, great services and even better conversations.…

Investment Banking Adviser – Investment Banking
May 29, 2020

Those who are able to achieve higher yields on their investments typically don’t have a broker and don’t listen to the advice of a financial planner. After all, if either of them knew what they were talking about they wouldn’t be hustling others into allowing them to learn the trade game off of other people’s money.

The reality is the few that have gained a comprehension for seeking out and getting involved with trades that open the floodgates to massive profits use their own money and operate as part of a small, tight knit group. The members of this ‘group’ always have their feelers out like tentacles sucking up and analyzing potential transactions, immediately looking for strategic elements and immediately dumping 99% as they don’t meet the criteria.

Two major components that professional investors who use their own money and are able to consistently pick winning transactions are companies that are in merger and/or acquisition mode and companies that are seeking seed capital specifically to go public.

Let’s focus on the latter. Companies seeking seed capital to go public are often financially viable companies with modest liquidity but are taking on seed investors so that they can meet the SEC minimum criteria of having 40 investors on the books to qualify for going public. Investors that are able to, literally, make millions per transaction have a way of getting into these opportunities by connecting with consultants who take companies public.

If you are able to get involved with these consulting firms and if you have some capital to designate as a seed investor, you can literally be placed in 4,5 or even 6+ pre IPO investments per year. When you are one of the 40 investors in a pre public OTCBB corporation you are usually investing seed capital at a fraction of the future public price by way of DPO (Direct Public Offering). The difference between what you pay for the seed stock and what the company charges per share when public is the profit.

It isn’t at all out of the ordinary to buy seed stock at 50 cents and have that stock gain in value of $1.00 to $1.50 when the company goes public and yes, you just made 50 cents to $1.00 net profit on each share. The great thing is you can often invest as a seed investor with as little as $5,000 to $10,000. If you have more capital you can spread it out over multiple pre-IPO opportunities. Seek out the pre- public companies and make a fortune!

Common Themes
May 20, 2020

Over the past few days I have had a similar conversation with 4 different girlfriend; body image. All of the discussions have focused on being healthy and achieving goals. No matter where someone is in their fitness journey they all have some of the same fears- failure. It makes me sad to see so many people struggle with body image and feelings of insecurity. Being healthy can be really hard but it is attainable! I know everyone has the ability to get to their end goal.

At happy hour last night with my friend Adrianne, we spent about 30 minutes talking about being happy and healthy. I shared my philosophy of eating what I want when I want but in moderation. Fruits and veggies are things I love and want to eat but if  I want a serving of chips or chocolate  I have it. Nothing is off limits, ever. I fit it in and do my best to live a healthy life. To me, that healthy life means going to the gym, doing yoga, lifting weights, eating whole foods and having the occasional treat.

Size doesn’t matter, it is how you feel.  I have seen women in the blog world talk about how they feel “heavy” at an “average” weight.  Really? I just do not understand that mentality. I try really hard to not engage in negative body talk and to just live my life while being healthy.  I am the happiest  I have been in years in all aspects of my life! I feel healthy, I like the way I look and I love that I have been working out consistently for almost 10 years.

In order to keep on my healthy plan I got a great workout in this morning, 30 minutes and 5 miles on the elliptical and a pretty intense leg workout of

-Squats

-Leg Curls

-Leg Extension

-Leg Press

-Calf Raises

-Hamstring Curl

After my workout I grabbed the Smoothie of the Day Special at the gym. Today’s flavor was Raspberry Blueberry Ultimate Protein, pretty darn tasty.…

Mike got me a new watch and it arrived today, I am so excited to wear it! Quite a few links need to come out since I have pretty small wrists. This brings my watch collection up to 4, while Mike is at close to 20. It isn’t very often that a guy has such a excitement about watches, but that would be my husband.

I will give him credit for finding them very much on sale, he has good luck at Amazon and Overstock and never spends more than a few hundred dollars for some pretty well known names. Good bargain hunting skills!…
