Hello Friends –

How’s the daylight saving time working out for you Day 2?  Adjusted to it all the way yet?  It takes me two or three days to adjust/embrace it all the way because I, for whatever reason, play this little game with myself — Well, it’s 12:00 but it’s really 11:00 or vice versa when the fall comes and we fall back.  Weird?  I don’t know – not to me anyway.  Anybody else play this Daylight Saving Game for a day or two?

By the way, I’m totally late to the proper name of Daylight Saving Time.  I’ve always referred to it as Daylight Savings Time.  Won’t anymore now that I know.

Collected these today for inspiration + information + fun + and recipes worthy of a looksy.


That will instantly be recognizable to “Boomers”.  There’s something bouncing around in my memory box right now wondering, Did I already put this in a previous episode months ago or were you just thinking about it, Cheryl?  Unsure – nonetheless, a fun walk down memory lane for those of us who know have earned the title of “Boomer”.  My favorite take-aways from the piece were Tang (was never a big Kool-Aid fan as a kid, but I sure loved Tang), Columbia House member (hand raised here!).  Carbon paper sets for a manual typewriter – yep, used them.
The entire list is a super blast from the past.

Well, I chose #5 because I it was really pretty and wasn’t a little foreboding to me like a couple of the other path choices.  (I’ve probably watched or worked on too many shows where paths like those were creepy – caution tape – stuff.  Ha.)  Not sure that I agree with the “personality traits” that my choice of a forest path reveals about me… but it was a fun little quiz thing.

Were just that — Clever and Humorous.  And, yes, while sitting in traffic I do enjoy spotting a license plate like one of these.

I agree with the writer of this article.  Yes, I’m familiar with Tomato Chicken Bullion and it’s a great add-in to many recipes.  And, no, I don’t read the long list of ingredients that some purists may poo-poo.  I think to myself, I’m only adding a little sprinkle and it’s been around FOREVER so I’m not gonna fret about it.
I do have a stellar, treasured recipe for authentic Mexican rice that is, as they say, off the charts GOOD.  It was given to me by a technician who worked with Peter and I for years and it’s his mom’s recipeHis nickname in the business is Bull – so I have titled it Bull’s mom’s rice recipe and I’ve made it a bazillion times.  And I’ve also made it for company and, without a doubt, I always get asked/begged for the recipe.  And,  yes, my first intro to Tomato Chicken Bullion.  I’ll share it in an upcoming episode — very soon.

As we’re all aware St. Patrick’s Day is just days away.  I discovered the first 3+1 recipes for consideration to prepare this year that may be a little – shall we saynon traditional but are outstanding!

Chipotle Chicken Quesadillas
As a giant fan of quesadillas, this particular recipe got my attention immediately when I read what one Commenter said, “Sweet Lord, these were amazing”.

Blueberry, Coconut Banana Bread
Look at how beautiful that loaf is.  An edible masterpiece.

Is a fan-tas-tic watch.  The choreography, number of talent involved and the period costumes.  A hands-down must watch!

Is an amusing read.  I, personally, do not recollect ever hearing the word Paraprosdokians – as in ever.  I had to do the Google thing to read a little about the word and then also did the Google thing to see if there was anything audio on how to pronounce it properly.  Found it!  You can listen to the pronunciation *here*

    Loved the CDK dancers, simply every inch of it. Thanks. Then there’s Daymaker calling our attention to forest paths. Beautiful paths are my great delight, well, all but paths as shown with stone steps. I find there’s some kind of HEALING going on – even if it’s a friends yard or my own simple paths. Hummmmm, I wonder if UTUBE has such great paths with birds singing and a few bunnies or two?

      Agree, Marty, the CDK Dancers were such a super talented, entertaining watch.

      And, yes, the forest paths were beautiful and cool. Betcha YouTube does have such a watch WITH birds singing and a few bunnies or two!

      Thank you. Have a grand day!

    Love the floral art opening Daymaker today.

    Ahh, Boomer memories. Remember all of them, down to a harvest gold and an avocado kitchen both of which I (shudder) had.

    Usually not a fan of bouillon in any form but the tomato chicken version sounds too promising not to try. I’ll look for it next time I shop.

    Enjoyed the Paraprosdokians – which term I’d never heard. Feel smarter for knowing 😉

    • Cheryl Clarson says:

      Hi Carol,

      I, too, enjoyed the Boomer memories/read. Total blast from the past grin from ear to ear. I recall we had the harvest gold oven in the wall (very modern at the time – for real – ha) in our childhood home.

      I’ll be anxious to hear if you give the tomato chicken bullion a shot and whether or not you like.

      The Paraprosdokians was a super fun read and learning the word was just as much fun for me as I, too, feel smarter for knowing. 🙂

      Thank you! Wishing you a fab day. Catch ya Wednesday.
