A few things Friday

  • Why are they constantly talking about Weiners on the news lately? At least class it up a little and speak of good things like Andouille.
  • On that note.....Ew. What is with all these politicians sleezing around on their wives. Yuck, politicians...never trust them!

  • If you've heard about the wild fires here in Arizona, it's so sad. One of the areas that is burning to the ground is the White Mountains area where we went camping a few months ago. It is seriously one of the most beautiful areas I've ever experienced. It saddens me thinking of all the beautiful landscape and animals that are dying right now!

  • Brownie points to anyone who gives me a good way to cook eggplant! Eggplant parmisan doesn't count. Not interested. It was on sale, I bought some. I did make some babagonoush (mmmmmm) - and want to use the others maybe on the grill?


  • The summer heat is drying out my daisies & petunias. I refer to Ms. Joan Baez singing "Where are all the flowers gone?".

  • I am excited to have a happy Friday today. I'm back to work tomorrow.....but today I will be going to spin class, meeting up with my Ryan in the afternoon to run some errands & do some shopping for decorating our office, and then having a little date night!

We get wildfires in southern B.C. every summer. It's just so darn hot and dry down here. There is always a fire ban on in July and August which kind of puts a damper on camping.

There were recently huge wildfires in Northern Alberta and a whole city burnt up - the police station, community hall, 600 or so people lost their homes. So sad.

Hope the wildfires go away soon. I hate natural disasters like that!

I know it is so sad esp since that area is such a beautiful area for our state.
Sounds like you have a wonderful Friday planned!

I hope you are enjoying your day off!

Good luck figuring out an eggplant recipe! I have never bought or done anything with an eggplant. :)

That is so sad about the wildfires. :(

Babagonoush?! YUM!! Sorry I can't help you with any eggplant recipes, the only thing I make with it is eggplant parm.

The wildfires are so sad! We were hoping to camp a little more this summer, but might not be able to with all the destruction. :( I'm happy that you get some lake time this summer and I'm super excited for you to meet little Charlie! :)

Those fires are awful! You're state is burning up and our state is flooding! Where's the balance? I love eggplant parm, but have not made many dishes with it. Did you check out Food Network? They always seem to be making something with it! I bet you are enjoying your tomato harvest! Can't wait to see you in just a few weeks!
