2012 is the year of THE COOK...right?

For Christmas I got a wonderful mixer.
It is A-MAH-ZING.  I have not made too many outrageous foods:

  • Pizza Dough
  • Soft Wheat Pretzles
  • Cake (or sumsing) Napoleon quote
  • Sugar cookie yummy!!  I got this recipe from Pinterest.

This year I am hoping to become a better cook.  Maybe I will blog about it...maybe I will not.
Here are some recipes that I hope to try this week.

Maybe you will read how they go, maybe you will not. (Sometimes I wish my blog would write itself.)

Cookery and Love,

While watching the news this morning there was a person on who did not spend any extra money for one month!! As in did not buy any clothes, eat out, Starbucks, etc. I think I am going to take that challenge for November!! Crazy, right?? Christmas shopping is done in November. Most importantly Starbucks NEEDS to be drank in these chilly months!! I think I can do it, well at least I am going to try....

Okay I am already moving the start date up to tomorrow because the idea of not having my Christmas shopping done is looming. This challenge starts tomorrow and will end November 24th!!

Here goes nothing :)

Chicago Trip...this is for you....oh yeah and my savings account...

Don't ever let me...

...wear a swim suit cover up, sans swimsuit when I am 60.  At work today I wanted to gouge my eyes out, it was not okay.  I may be scarred for life.

Oh thankful none of you were there.

Afraid of sleeping tonight,

Fair Time!

Last Friday I worked a both at our county fair.  It was the Right to Life booth.  

Now I have helped my friend Val work the both for the past couple of years, this year something was different, something was very different. 


The fair had so many dairy and beef cows this year that they took over the tented area to the north of our commercial could see and SMELL cows from where we sat.  So of course the smell of country has made me want a pair of cowboy boots...I have researched and found a pair!  Let me know if you want to buy them for me :)  

After our booth time was up, we wondered the fair...hope you enjoy the following pictures :)
I also watched Cassie do barrels, made me want cowboy boots even more!!

Blessings and Boots,

Imma Bird Watcher....

I am not this biggest fan of birds, so you may be asking your self why I was taking pictures of them.
Flipping sweet pictures too, I almost wet myself when they turned out this good!!

But then I told myself, "Casi, you are 26 not 76."
and then I did not pee myself.

Anywho, I am dog sitting and the dog will not relieve herself, she misses her misses.  So I bring her to my fenced in back yard to run around, thus the movement makes her relieve herself. (sorry) But she whines and yips if I go in the house.  Thus I sat outside for two hours with my camera and took about 400 photos of birds and poochies. 

Here is non-relieving Shadow dog.

My precious pooch, Harley!

Hope you are all having a splendid start to your weekend!!

I am sitting the LaPorte Library.
It is so cold I have peed three times.
In the toilet, not my pants.
The lady who gives me the potty key probably thinks I have the runs.
But that is not the case, it is the cold.
The cold is also causing my freshly shaven leg hairs to grow back.
Your welcome.

Casi :)

Pop it, Lock it, Poka Dot it!

Bakerella ella ella a a a. amen.

I am currently obsessed with these super amazing treats.  Please take some time, or all day to peruse her site!

Side note: My space bar is acting super weird.

Main note: Bakerella has a wonderful Cake Pop book with step by step directions and pictures to boot!

Here is my finished product and first attempt at making the cake balls.

I wanted to start out small and move on up to making the cooler cake pops.
This was a lot of fun and actually relaxing!  
Unfortunately my candy coating of choice was off-brand and coated very thinly. 
For dark cake mix I would def use a dark candy coating as well!!

Also, they are so little you do not realize how many you have consumed so be-careful!
 My next attempt is going to be the flower pops..YIKES ;) I'll keep you all posted!
