WARNING-GRAPHIC!

This seemed kind of funny at first, but then it made me sad! Fremont St in Las Vegas, last week. So many naked men (mostly old and/or over weight), taking pictures in hopes to get money from the crowd. The night before I was on the strip watching high rollers throw down $100k for a single bet, then I go down the road a bit to see this. If nothing else, it makes me realize how fortunate I am to have the life that I have. Please, do NOT take your young children anywhere near Las Vegas, not ok!

Yes, I have a pistachio obsession… now, to the recipe!

I was really quite bored the other day and wanted to try and create a recipe out of anything I had in the cupboards – and all I had other than the standard cake ingredients is raspberries, strawberries, and pistachios. At first I was a little dubious as to what this combination may taste like, but my theory then turned into how can it taste bad?! Fruit and nutty is always a good combination, and with these fruits starting to come in to their prime season soon I thought it was worth a try!

I have tried this recipe with just strawberry coulis, just raspberry and a combination – all taste absolutely yum so its completely up to you! One thing I do find however is if the fruit isn’t quite in season then the taste might not come through…

Before & After

Yuck! I hated the set up of my closet. It hasn’t been working for me for years, but finally I decided to spend the weekend re-doing it.

wpid-20150313_211840.jpg
Ugly!
wpid-20150313_211819.jpg
Wow! I doubled the space in the closet! Painting the inside of the closet makes me feel clean! Although you can’t see the paint job, I know it’s nice and pretty behind all of my clothes :-)

wpid-20150315_180334.jpg
We had to pull everything out of the closet-everything.
wpid-20150314_103821.jpg
Lots of time, but only cost about $50.00 The paint ate up most of that budget. A couple shelving supports and an additional dowel.

I don’t have a “honey-do” list, but I do have a “daddy-do” list, haha! My dad is always so eager to help me with my crazy projects that I have going on!

Total time spent, about 10 hours.

Cucumber & Avocado Sandwich with a Cream Cheese & Dill Spread

wpid-20150311_174202.jpg
Many non-vegetarian people people that we veggie people don’t like food. Or sometimes they think that we don’t eat yummy & fantastic things, so wrong…..

wpid-20150311_174113.jpg
Spread the cream cheese/dill spread.

wpid-20150311_174122.jpg
Add thinly sliced fresh, crisp cucumber slices. A sprinkle of black pepper and salt, to taste.

wpid-20150311_174126.jpg
Layer on top the slightly firm avo’s. It can be a bit messy, so I don’t cut the sandwich.

wpid-20150311_174801.jpg
EAT!

Cream Cheese Spread:
1 tub of whipped cream cheese
1/2 tsp dill
wpid-20150311_174742.jpg
Put both in a bowl and mix well. Then it’s ready to spread!

You could also add sprouts or lettuce :-)

What do women REALLY want?

~Yesterday I received a phone call from a single friend of mine who began complaining about the dating scene, “What do women really want in a man?” he said, “It seems as though they only care about two things; a guy who has a magnetic personality and who earns a ton of money, doesn’t my intelligence count for anything?” he asked?

I tried to explain to him that younger women (and men) definitely might display a tendency toward looking for qualities in a mate that might be on the more ‘superficial’ side….but as we mature we learn that there are more important qualities that matter when it comes to choosing a significant other.

Yet even as I write that last paragraph….I find myself wondering how many of us actually do grow ‘more mature’ in the area of choosing a mate as we get older. After…
