Palin & Me

Only one thing in common with Sarah.....
(well, beside being a wife, mother, grandmother,
love of the outdoors, no political views or affiliation)

Watch D


9 on ABC

Barbara Walter


“10 most Fasinating People”

Times magazine cover story about Sarah Palin:

Less well known was the Palin

who agitated for more access to the media

(other than KatieCouric), who was seen more than once

passed out on her hotel bed half-buried in

briefing books and index cards and whose

thriftiness when it came to her wardrobe was

so obvious that one senior strategist clucked of the Palins,

“These people shop at Dillards!”

Here is

another quote from the same time magazine aricle that

I found in the blog: SLATE

"There's another woman profiled in the Times

this week whose branding

sometimes contradicts itself and who

is described by

a fan-turned-staffer as "the most ordinary person."

This is of course, former Vice Presidential candidate, and potential

future Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Palin is very

far from ordinary, despite some of

her more relatable trappings

(a McCain strategist once said of Sarah and Todd,

"These people shop at Dillards!"

I bought my dress 3 weeks ago at Dillard's (before I saw this interview)

for a wedding of one of my co-workers. It is an Antonio Melani (size 4).

OK...e..nouff! :)

Holiday Happiness

This week I have been thinking a bit about Thanksgiving, Christmas
and wondering what magic will occur in the next several weeks.

I have a few recipes that I will attempt to cook, bake and freeze.
(hint...a variety of culinary methods of creating gastronomical delights.)

Here a few vintage ideas


It is amazing that Christmas is even on my mind,
the fact that it is just 6 weeks away...

I'm bringing out the cookbooks and will be
baking up some "sugar plum sweets"!

Believe It or NOT....

The Left-Handed Whopper:

Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of a new item to their menu: a "Left-Handed Whopper" specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans. According to the advertisement, the new whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper (lettuce, tomato, hamburger patty, etc.). However, the left-handed whopper had "all condiments rotated 180 degrees, thereby redistributing the weight of the sandwich so that the bulk of the condiments will skew to the left, thereby reducing the amount of lettuce and other toppings from spilling out the right side of the burger."

Jim Watkins, senior vice president for marketing at Burger King, was quoted as saying that the new sandwich was the "ultimate 'HAVE IT YOUR WAY' for our left-handed customers." The advertisement then noted that the left-handed Whopper would initially only be available in the United States, but that the company was "considering plans to roll it out to other countries with large left-handed populations." The following day Burger King issued a follow-up release revealing that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, "many others requested their own 'right handed' version."

Here are some funny Hamburger jokes..

How do you insult a hamburger patty?
Call it a meatball!
How do you make a cheeseburger sad?
Make it with blue cheese!

Bon appetite!

One of the cornerstones of cultural life in the tiny
country of Denmark is something Danes call

It has no exact English translation; the best
approximation is "cozy," or "socially comforting."
It refers to that feeling of being with close friends, having a sincere
conversation over food and drink, perhaps listening to good music.

I am going to SLC today to experience hygge.
Maybe I will post pic's tomorrow.
