Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

What happens when it’s Friday night and you don’t feel like cooking, ordering pizza or going out and a bowl of cereal just won’t cut it? In our house when that happens we head straight to the garage and to the freezer.  There is where I try to keep microwavable meals and snacks specifically for those occasions and last Friday night it was Lean Pockets Pretzel Bread Sandwiches.

I am not a big proponent of frozen meals & snacks because of the excessive sodium some of them contain but these Lean Pockets brand sandwiches are only 250 calories with 650 mg of sodium which isn’t a lot compared to others that contain well over 1000 mg of sodium.

The Lean Pockets Sandwiches were filled with Spinach and 3  Cheeses, Fontina, Romano and reduced Fat Mozzarella.  I zapped one in the microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds in the crisping sleeve then cut it in half.  It didn’t seem like it had a lot of filling and could have had more spinach, but to my surprise it was quite good and hit the spot. The soft pretzel bread encased a flavorful mix of spinach and cheeses that paired well with my glass of Friday night wine!

Speaking of wine, I want to reintroduce my “play cousin” Cook E doe Face.  She is a down to earth YouTube Vlogger who will have you in stitches as you watch her create some delicious dishes and “knock you on your butt cocktails”.

Cook E de Face is from Philly and I fell in love with her atty-tud (Philly slang) from the very first video I watched.  In today’s world it is so easy to get caught up in the negativity but you know me, I like to keep it light.  Cook E doe Face has me laughing out loud and reminds me of my own New York cousins.  If it were left up to me she would definitely have a show on the Food or OWN Network!

Check out this recipe for Flatline Cocktail.

 

Have a fantastical day – Smooches!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

On Sunday hubby and I celebrated our 23rd Wedding Anniversary and had dinner at our favorite restaurant, Chesapeake Inn and Marina.  This lovely restaurant is located in Chesapeake City, Maryland on the waterfront and overlooks the C&D Canal.  We have enjoyed having our Anniversary dinner here for years not only because of it’s location which is only 10 mins from the house, but because it has the best seafood and the atmosphere is enjoyable.

Before leaving for the evening our son took a few pictures of us on the back deck.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

Chasing the Dream Entrepreneurship Camp sponsored by The Money School of Delaware provided youngsters between the ages of 9-13, an opportunity to learn the basics of starting a business.  Last Thursday they were given the tools and a venue to showcase what they had learned.

A miniature Marketplace was set up in Rodney Square in Wilmington where the campers had an opportunity to sell their products, which included body scrubs, hand crafted jewelry, sunglasses, candy, plants, lemonade, popcorn, metal sculptures even hourly math tutoring sessions.

These young entrepreneurs obviously also learned another very important lesson, the value of customer satisfaction.  They greeted each passerby with a smile and eagerly answered questions about their products.

There was a heavy downpour on and off during the day but that did not stop people from coming out to support.  There was a steady stream of customers as well as WDEL Radio personality, Amy Cherry and a 6ABC News cameraman.

I was truly impressed with not only the products these entrepreneurs had created, but how each of their personalities and positive attitudes showed brightly despite the dark clouds looming overhead.

Kudos to The Money School of Delaware for supporting the youth of today with their futures of tomorrow.

Hello Friends…I’m back and so did son and I – we went back to Cowgirl’s Creamery and it was definitely worth it.  I am not a big sweet-eater especially ice cream, but the thought of having Farm Fresh Hand Dipped Ice Cream for dessert was too hard to resist.  So much so that I ate my 2 scoops of Coconut ice cream as I was preparing dinner!

The cows were back in the barn at Emerson Farms but the goats were out at Cowgirl’s.
