Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 12


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Hard to believe that our journey has brought us into day 12 already.  Time really does fly when you are having fun.

I really do hope that you have enjoyed the journey so far.

Lets stop first and see what snack our first visit is preparing so that we can at least eat as we travel.

http://rantingchef.com/author/rantingchef/ When someone is not guest blogging or he is not doing a competition, he is reviewing products for the kitchen here.  This was one of the first blogs that I began to follow.  I have even had the privilege to be able to be a guest blogger this past fall.  It was such fun.

Today he is whipping up with a tutorial a dish of http://rantingchef.com/2013/05/19/so-much-for-cooking-classes/

Green Beans with Caramelized Onions and Almonds

Now that we have our food lets travel on to our next stop:

http://fingerprintwriting.wordpress.com/

Totally pack a bag lunch before you visit this site as you are really going to be there for a while.  Elaine writes about her life and happenings in it that are real.  You are aware from the first line in each article that they are written from the heart and genuine.  I only hope you enjoy as much as I have.

Next stop since you are back now:

http://vosperdruiter.wordpress.com/ Getting a view from a Pastor of a Church, now I really hope that perhaps you at least packed a snack or two and perhaps a second bag lunch.  There is also a lot of great reading here.

Our next stop is at http://herapereira.com/ Who not only has poetry and several interesting blogs of her own but a few reblogs of interest.

Our last stop of the day since I really do need to get back to my house guest and stop being rude is:

http://womenwhothinktoomuch.wordpress.com/ If that site does not keep you busy till tomorrow, nothing will.    She has categories with subcategories that I think have subcategories. LOL

She is one busy gal.

Till tomorrow signing out,

Daily Prompt: Going List-Y


Daily Prompt: The Satisfaction of a List

Who doesn’t love a list? So write one! Top five slices of pizza in your town, ten reasons disco will never die, the three secrets to happiness — go silly or go deep, just go list-y.

lists

Why do we make lists?  What type of lists do we make?  Are they to keep us organized, help us to remember or just something to doodle when in a meeting?

I decided to explore the different types of lists that people make.  Here are my findings.

The Ever Famous Summer Bucket List…(Kids are out of school for break, have limited time to get it done in short time)

bucket list

 

Then I began to think about what do we use list for besides…

wine list on menu

 

Menus in Restaurants

top ten spices eating right listReading articles

schedule

Making Appointments

party guest list

Having a party or wedding

notebook lists

Taking notes or inventory

cleaning list

Cleaning Lists

wish

Hmmm

store joke

grocery

We make this so we do not impulse shop

do it

Ah the Honey Do List…

list

Now it is time for me to make my list like the prompt said…

I need to decide which list to start with first…
Perhaps I need a list for my lists
Should they all be neatly lined on the fridge?
Do I line them up by importance?
What deems the list more important?
My fridge has a Honey Do and Grocery…
Both are forgotten by hubby…
If I could eat in a corn free restaurant, I would love a menu
I don’t drink, so I do not need a wine list.
I am a little old to start a bucket list
Today is day off from A-Z Challenge
Tomorrow I do the Letter M
That really is a list of sorts, yet broken down by day
It does not feel like a list that is in a list.
I guess you could easily say that my lists have lists.

Daily Prompt: Pressing On to Share The Love


pad2013 (1)

Daily Prompt: Press It

Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved in the past week, and tell us why they’re worth reading.

The very first one that comes to mind is a post by a regular that I read and it was really a great Poem that she wrote.

http://theseeker57.wordpress.com/2013/04/10/on-children-april-2013-monthly-peace/

The poem was very touching, well written and the message was one that was well worth a reblog.

The next one that comes to mind is a mom who shows her love of children through her blog…every step of the way.  She also shows her love of crafts on the blog.  Her latest blog was on her second child’s first hair cut.  http://momoftwosalums.com/2013/04/10/my-baby-boy-had-his-first-haircut/
 Through her writings, you can tell her overflowing love of her family.

The next must read is going to two bloggers actually because when I am hungry, I always go to these two sites to see what they or their guest bloggers are cooking for the day.  They never disappoint me and always have something great to offer:

http://rantingchef.com/author/rantingchef/  When he is not giving you a great recipe he is giving you a diced competition of four great blogging chefs who are competing with a recipe.

http://maggiesonebuttkitchen.com This gal is all about cooking and blogs or has guest blogs daily about food.

So that is my recommendations for the day…I have many more on my wall if you check that I actually recommend daily as I read them.

Now I am off to my A-Z challenge…I am on the Letter J so I am still going strong.

Daily Prompt: Crash Diet on an island


Daily Prompt: Five a Day

You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick?

Since I had no ideas on this post I decided to consult an expert in the field.  http://ezinearticles.com/?Top-Five:-Survival-Food&id=5033883 according to this article the top five foods should be:

Here are five major food groups that can help you survive while awaiting rescue operations to find you:

1 – Meats and proteins must be priority on your list. There is no issue with spoiling since these foods are now canned. Make sure to check the expiration dates. The later the expiration dates, the better.

You can also store up on loads of beef jerky. Unlike other cold cuts, this does not require refrigeration and are vacuum sealed for longer shelf life. You can also store meat items that need to be cooked but be sure to cook it first before deciding on consuming the canned products. For these types of food that require cooking, you need to have a burner or any portable heating device.

2 – Energy bars, mixed nuts, beans and peanut butter are good sources of protein. Be sure to store some of these too.

3 – Fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of carbohydrates and other vitamins and minerals that you will need for survival. Canned fruits such as peaches, oranges and pineapples are good fruit choices and have long shelf lives. You can also store dried fruits. Aside from the fact that it can be eaten alone, they have high carbohydrate content and can be kept for six to nine months.

4 – Whole grains such as crackers, bread sticks, rice and cereals are good choices for survival foods. You may also want to consider storing an amount of brown rice because of the extra fiber that it contains and the B vitamins that it supplies the body. Unfortunately it doesn’t last longer than white rice so if you’re looking for whole grains that have a variety of flavors, store granola bars.

5 – Water is the most essential fluid to have. Make sure that there’s enough supply of bottled water that you can drink. Each person shall have a gallon’s share of water per day in order to avoid shortage. Separate drinking water from water that will be used for cleaning and hygiene purposes. Aside from water, fruit juices, coffee, powdered milk and tea must also be stored. Other food items include candy bars, chewing gums, condiments specifically salt to preserve foods and pepper to add flavour to your main meals, honey and other types of sweeteners. These food types can help divert your palate from the usual taste that you might grow tired of while waiting to be found by rescue operations.

I never realized that there were so many articles on this subject till I started this posting wow…

http://www.livestrong.com/article/371448-5-basic-food-ingredients-for-survival/

fotolia_3258227_XS

There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing foods for your survival kit. Survival foods should be high in energy, easy to transport, require no refrigeration or cooking, and most importantly, provide necessary nutrients. Whether you’re packing survival foods for a hike, camping trip or your home emergency disaster kit, there are a few staples you should include.

Fats

One of the best ingredients for survival is fat. Fats are good for energy, and they also provide insulation under the skin from extreme temperatures. Fat provides needed energy — gram for gram, fat provides more energy than carbohydrates. Good portable sources of fat include sardines, peanut butter, nuts, dried coconut and certain food bars, such as Organic Raw Omega-3 food bar, which contains 13 grams of healthy fat.

Carbohydrates

The body gets energy from carbs by breaking them down into glucose to use for fuel. In most survival situations, you burn more calories and reach exhaustion faster than normal. Carbohydrates provide readily accessible fuel for physical performance. Quick and easy sources of carbs include instant oatmeal, fruits and granola bars.

Protein

Protein is a very important nutrient for survival, but not just protein, but complete proteins, which contain all the essential amino acids — the building blocks of protein. Protein is needed to repair muscle tissue; the more active you are, as in a survival situation, the more protein you will need. Quick and easy protein sources include canned tuna, dehydrated meats, nuts and pemmican, a dried, concentrated mixture of protein and fat.

Water and Electrolytes

Water is one of the most important ingredients for survival; you can go weeks without food, but only a day or so without water. But drinking plain water, especially in extreme temperatures in which you might perspire more, can cause an electrolyte imbalance. Symptoms of an imbalance or deficiency include drowsiness, weakness, nausea, confusion and disorientation. Electrolytes help minimize these symptoms and prevent muscle cramps. Gatorade is a common choice, but takes up space in your survival kit or backpack. However, electrolyte tablets are very compact and easy to transport.

Happy Survival

Hope this helps on your next adventure to ????

What would you request for your five foods?  Would love to hear from you about your thoughts.  Check back with Michelle during the day to see what other Daily Prompt Writers had to say.  I am to early this morning to catch their thoughts.

Daily Prompt: Comedy of Errors Making Pasta


Daily Prompt: Comedy of Errors (and bonus assignment!)

by michelle w. on February 27, 2013

Murphy’s Law says, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” Write about a time everything did — fiction encouraged here, too!

Bonus assignment: do you keep a notebook next to your bed? Good. Tomorrow morning, jot down the first thought you have upon waking, whether or not it’s coherent.

The one and only time that we have tried to make pasta, I forgot what pasta was all about the first time through and tried to make it with Gluten Free Flour.

Nice option to baking

Nice option to baking but not pasta making

The second time of trying we used regular flour and used a YouTube Video…I think he had a few too many glasses of wine… the pasta was way too thin and had holes.

The third attempt got us as far as making the dough from a recipe that my hubby’s friend gave him.  By then, my kitchen looked like a tornado had gone through it and the mess was incredible.

4354413748136Pdrying rackattachments ravioliclock tickingIt was late at night and we were both exhausted… I ended up just doing dishes with hubby’s assistance and going straight to bed.  Tossing the dough into the trash.

Perhaps another day I will try again…when I am feeling brave.

Perhaps I might even consider just leaving it to Barilla

Daily Prompt B+: What I did last Weekend?


Daily Prompt: B+

by michelle w. on February 23, 2013

Write about what you did last weekend as though you’re a music critic reviewing a new album.

Prelude:  Has a woman sitting at her desk asking herself what she really did last weekend.  It was only one week ago.

Track One:

Hubby goes to grocery store on post and has a panic attack before he finishes grocery list and hurries home with ribs (not on list) and half of the grocery list.  Not a great track here.  No happy dancing here.

Track Two:

Wife slowly puts away few groceries and finishes cleaning the house..Not an exciting track here at all.

Track Three:

Time to feed the animals again.  They eat three times a day in small portions. This track is a bit better.  At least a little better dancing.

Track Four:

Time to blog of course since Daily Prompt never takes a break.  This is definitely a better dance track while working.

Track Five:

This track is all about getting in a shipment from Tupperware and Scentsy that I had to inventory and stamp catalogs.  Not very exciting but very necessary since we were out of catalogs and only had Canadian Catalogs no USA ones. This track had a bonus track with it.

Track Six:

This is where Tammye Honey decided that she was hungry and made dinner.  A simple track but easy to follow.

Track Seven:

Short track of time to do the dishes.  Only wish I had a dishwasher.

Track Eight:

Time to relax and watch some tv while crocheting a light evening of quiet time snuggled in the bed with two dogs and a cat.

Hope this leaves you in a relaxed mode to be able to continue and read what other Daily Prompt Writers had to say on this subject:

Daily Prompt: My Most Satisfying Meal


Daily Prompt: Seconds!

by michelle w. on February 22, 2013

Describe the most satisfying meal you’ve ever eaten in glorious detail. 

This was a simple and easy dish to prepare I have even included where to find the recipe.

http://tammyehoney.wordpress.com/2012/05/18/bowties-and-shrimp-in-spinach-pesto-made-easy/

I have made this recipe several times with various fish and meats as substitutes for the shrimp and each time it is perfect.

I find my mouth watering as it is cooking.  I am so glad that it is a fast dish to make as I have a huge bowl of it right away.

There is something about this dish that calls you from the refrigerator and says “Come and get more”

Calendar and Items Clipped

I try to resist yet the sound of the dish keeps calling my name.  I have to stop what I am doing and go get another plate of it and warm it in the microwave and eat till I feel like I am going to burst.

I have to admit this is one dish that has this power over me.  There are not many dishes that can do this to me and make my mouth water just thinking about it.  This one does.

I can almost hear you thinking, there is nothing special about this dish, once you have eaten it you will think differently.

Thank you for reading and happy eating…

What is your favorite meal that makes you go back for seconds and makes you drool?  Would love to hear about it…

Let me know….
