what the damn!

I have seriously been fiening Rice Krispie Treats for two weeks! I walked to 7 Eleven last week to buy my ingreds. but to my astonishment, they do not sell marsh-a-mallos! Nor do they sell Rice Krispies!!!
WTH???
So I came home and found about 15 hard marshmallows and some remaining rice krispies to concoct my treat. Needless to say I didn't have the same gratification as I would have if they were quite fresh.
I am just in an anti grocery store mood this month. I'd rather eat out every day then go to the market at this point.

Moving on,,, I found marshmallows @ Target Greatland yesterday but again - no krispies!!! So I make another trip - to the market I go to get the main ingredient.

Now I am ready to make my snack! All gooey yuimminess ready to be inhaled...

But alas, I still came up empty handed. (Read On)
I made it in my nice pyrex dish in the microwave.

This is what happened as Snap Krackle & Pop screamed:

Okay it's not really a secret *at least to my family* how addicted I was for years to The SIMS. I still miss playing the game. But due to a poor quality PC,memory,hd (I know, all fixable items),e tc. I have not been able to play and drown myself in their nonsense. whimper**

SO anyway, I delight myself and get my SIMS fix by watching SIMS based remakes of celebrity videos. begin here:

One comment:In one video remake, Beyonce done replaced Kelly & Michelle with chilren from da playground! Apparently they come package with eyeliner and hootchie dances pre-installed.

But I think these are neat. Perhaps only if you are a SIMS aficionado

In recent studies - it is predicted that seafood will be scarce come year 2048. What do they think I will eat if there's no seafood?
recycle people; contaminate less: Metro more! Don't make me starve : (

best & worst

Out of a total of 371 cities ranked by the FBI in June 06 - Amherst, NY was ranked 2nd least dangerous city & Buffalo, NY ranked among the worst coming in @ #340 !!!
Atlanta came in @ #355, DC came in @ #353. Compton,CA - Camden,NJ - Flint,MI - Detroit & St.Louis came in as the 5 most dangerous cities.
hmmm... I was going 2 head 2 ATL next but maybe it's safer to be a soccer mommy in Amherst (not that I'm a mommy yet or into soccer & minivans!!!

Please Taste Italy For Me...

Right now I would love to hop a plane and head to Italy and end the Month of October with fireworks & vino!
Being that this is not a feasible option (at least not this weekend) I will have to insert substitutions instead. So I found this recipe in the progress of my searching for flights and hotels in Italy.
Lush Pears & Vino = Yum!




Pere da Lucca

As Italians love to eat only seasonal fresh produce, it is always wonderful to see how creatively they utilize what comes from the trees and ground of their garden. We know that Autumn produces abundantly for our primi and secondi piatti, but what shall we have for desert, dear? Aahh...may we suggest La Pere da Lucca?

This is an Autumn dish which may easily put people in their grave happily. Yes, "a dish to die for." Pears cooked in red table wine, served cool with fresh whipped cream.

Ingredients:

Peeled pears
Bottle of cheap red wine
Sugar and cinnamon
Whip cream

Peel your pears (and make sure you pick ripe ones), as many as you want. Throw them in a pot, cover with red wine and cook until they are soft, Throw into the pot some sugar, cloves and cinnamon - as much as you want. Turn the pears so that all sides get equal treatment. By the time the pears are finally soft you will have boiled the wine mixture down to a wonderful thickened sauce for later use. Let this whole thing cool before eating. Serve with fresh whipped cream on the side (don't you even think about that Cool Whip or that canned crap!). Spoon a little of the sauce over the pears when serving.

Now you are ready to die.



I thought of (e:Paul) (e:Matt) & (e:Terry) & their grand harvest of Pears courtesy of the pretty trees in the rear garden.
