New Diet Tip - It really Works!

Great Diet Tip:
Clean your fridge!
You will be so disgusted by the things you find, that it will put you off from eating.
Slight problem with this, is that most of the things that dissolve into a biology experiment are generally good for you. Peppers for example and bags of salad that escape their jail by becoming like snail trail or stuff that babies and old people drool.

If you really want to go for an eight pound diet loss - try this. Open a can of beef broth (low sodium of course) - do not open the lid fully - only a little.
Then place upside down in the fridge, at the back and on the top shelf.
Now leave and forget for five weeks.
When you pull out the salad boxes at the bottom, you will discover the 9th Wonder of The World - The Broth Frozen Pool. Its pretty beautiful with blobs of stuff it has captured upon its journey down.
Kind of like the volcano at Pompeii, whose hot lava made statues out of people.

Cleaning it up is pretty bad, especially when your fridge door is against a…

Coq au Vin Recipe

In my adventurous days, Coq au Vin, equaled a fun position in the back of a car on a Saturday night.
Now it just means, cooking.
So here are some handy steps to add to your favorite recipe.

1)   Purchasing tin foil roasting pans for a one time use, are a great way of cutting down on clean up and solving limited storage space.
2)   Some of these pans come complete with plastic lids. It's fun to think -  "plastic lid on a roasting pan is a great idea, because I am using this pan for Coq au Vin and it requires a lid."
3)   Once placed inside the oven and you're checking the dish, it is not a good idea to say "wow, look at that, the lid must have fallen off."
4)   If you do think that, you may wish to look for the plastic lid, rather than presume that it is content to sun bath.
5)   Once food is out of oven, it should not be of great surprise that the taste is not exactly as one may expect.
6)   A few hours later, it is a joy to stare at the splattered, artist…

Joining Twitter

Oh no I didn't! Well, I didn't mean to. It just happened. I am not guilty of going in with intention.
They convinced me, teased me and tempted me. It's obvious they all attended a Dale Carnegie Sales Course, because I joined.
Was it a business course? Do you know me?
Was it a gym? Are you delirious?
Was it a cooking class? Are you stupid?

I joined Twitter. As mentioned, I did not mean to.

My talented friend, Jen Smith, www.moresinglethannuns.com, is now twitting. Is it twit or tweet?
So I went on, to see what she was writing about. Oops, did I say writing? I mean twitting.
I find that to read, I have to follow her. This scares me, the term "following" her. I know what they mean. Couldn't they find another word though? "Following" immediately conjures dark alleys in my mind and I don't like it!

So then to read..I mean to follow. I have to join (log on for the younger readers) and become a twit myself.

Two hours later I have laughed at Steve Mart…
