To Die for: Honda Crosstour

30 Aug

2010 Honda Crosstour at the 2010 Canadian Inte...

I went car shopping the other day….well actually car browsing.  I have never wanted a new car until recently when my car is almost paid off 😦

I came across the new Honda Crosstour.  Photos really don’t do it justice.  It is really nice and a luxury version of the Accord. It is very spacious and a bit bigger than a small SUV like a Tribute or Escape but it is still smaller than a real full sized SUV.  It doesn’t have 3 rows but it could fit 3 carseats if you picked them strategically, Britax Regent and other larger carseats in multiples probably won’t work but depending on the ages of your children you could fit a booster, one large carseat like a Britax Marathon and an infant carrier which most smaller SUVs don’t allow for.

The drawback of this vehicle is the price….starts at about $30,000.  Another funny tidbit about this car, it reminds me of the “Edward Cullen” volvo. LOL

Anyone knows someone who has one?

Anti-Gay Baton Rouge Granite Co. in Stone Age « RJW Blog

30 Aug

A friend of mine tipped me off to this article about a local Louisiana retailer in Baton Rouge refusing service to an openly gay couple.  This sort of story should open the eyes of any business owner that plans to commit such descrimiation to its customers.

Business owners need to remember that a customer is a customer and I wonder how this business would be boycotted if the owner refused on the basis of race, religious affliliation, gender or any other unchangeable trait possessed by a person which has no bearing on their purchase.

I ask that you retweet this article, share it on facebook and any other social media outlet you may use.

Potato Soup Recipe

27 Aug

I had my wisdom teeth out this week so we made potato soup so that I could actually eat a substantial meal.  This recipe is a variation on a Paula Dean recipe and it is DELICIOUS!

1/2 stick of butter
1 small onion diced
2 tbsp flour
8 russet potatoes peeled and chopped into chunks
2 chuck bouillion cubes
4 1/2 cups milk
1 cup half and half
6 slices or turkey bacon
Pepper
Salt
Garlic Powder
Cheddar Cheese for Garnish
Green onions for garnish

Saute bacon in pot and remove.  Add butter to bacon drippings until melted.  Sweat the onions in the bacon drippings and butter mixture until translucent.  Add in the flour and cook for 1 minute until combined.  Add in the milk, potatoes and chicken bouillion cubes and bring to a boil.  Once the soup boils turn it down to a simmer and let cook until potatoes are tender.  Mash some of hte potatoes with the back of the spoon.Add in the 1/2 and 1/2.

Garnish with cheese, bacon and green onions.

If you use skim milk, fat free 1/2 and 1/2 and light cheese it will be 6 points per cup without bacon.

Emjoy!

Wisdom Teeth Extractions = Crazy amount of Prescriptions

25 Aug

So I am having my wisdom teeth taken out tomorrow, all 4 of them.  This is something that I have been putting off and dreading since college.  I finally decided to do it becuase they have been KILLING me.

I was absolutely alarmed by how many prescrtiptions I had to pick up today.  My kitchen cabinet looks like a pharmacy! I have never had to really take medication other than simple antibiotics so this is out of the ordinary for me.

Wish me luck!
