Random Thoughts

1.

Yee haw! The Pioneer Woman gets her own TV show!

Where have I been and why have I not heard about this?  Just saw the commercial on Food Network and I cannot wait until August 25th, 10:30 AM!!!!


The USC student-turned-cowgirl-turned-Internet and publishing sensation is also the subject of a big screen adaptation of her life on the range, with Reese Witherspoon set to play her.  How cool is that?


2.

I love Red Box!   Reserve online and minutes later a $1.00 (unbelievable) movie is in my hands.  Bye bye $4.69 for 5 nights, late charges blah, blah, blah.  Tonight it's Soul Surfer!!


3.

I discovered these crackers while on vacation and the flavor is wonderful.  Japanese Style Rice Cracker.....soy, salt, seaweed, paprika.....Yum!  I bought an extra bag to bring home and dread eating the last one......



That's all for now....have a great weekend all!

So good to have you back online!! Welcome home - your trip looks like it was A.MA.ZING. Thought of you the other day when I made a PW recipe. Cooked up her meatloaf and some mashed taters. It was so yummy!

Seaweed snacks and a movie! sounds good to me!

I didn't know about The Pioneer Woman getting her own show and a movie. That's fantastic.

Hope your day is great. Tammy

I can't wait for #1! I'll definitely be watching.

And I just rented Soul Surfer tonight, too, from Redbox. Great minds think alike :)

(P.S. Everything is fine - I hope to get back to blogging soon!)

I am SO EXCITED about Ree's show! I am marking my calendar now so I will NOT get busy and miss it! She is SOOOO MUCH FUN!

I'm probably going to have rotten tomatoes thrown at me for saying this, but I am not a fan of Ree's
"Add a can or two of soup" style of cooking. I'm hoping the FN will have developed healthier recipes for her to demonstrate.

This snack sounds yummy! Soy is a healthy snack
