Still Snow

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

We still have snow outside. It’s so interesting because some yards have melted, but ours continues to be white. When I went for a walk, I noticed some yards still had a foot of snow on either side of their sidewalk. The year of never-ending snow.

Support our Wounded Troops

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

I’ve been watching tv for about an hour each afternoon while I stretch my back. I usually watch a cooking show and today it was Emeril Live.

Emeril’s entire show was a support to the US troops. He had a cooking contest with the military. The marine that won talked about a cookbook that had his steak recipe. All proceeds from A Salute to Steak go to the care of wounded marines. So far they have raised over $400,000 with their goal being $500,000.

I immediately googled wounded warrior center recipe book to find that cookbook. (I couldn’t remember the exact name) I ordered a copy and I encourage you to order a copy, too! I don’t promote charities much on this blog, but this is a way to help take care of men & women who are serving us around the country…without charging taxes. That’s my way of paying the bills.

Go get your copy right now at Command of the Grill: A Salute to Steak and know the profits go to helping wounded soldiers.

ps. If you think $10 is expensive for this recipe book, consider it a donation to a great cause.

pps. Let your kids pitch in for a family copy and you are modeling “charity” for them.

ppps. The steak recipe Emeril cooked on his show looked delicious. I plan to cook it once I get my cookbook.

What did you have for Valentine’s dinner? We had stuffed filet (with bleu cheese) and roasted potatoes (with walnuts, garlic & green onions) and heart-shaped biscuits. Gentry made the biscuits while I worked on the rest of dinner.

Lots of Snow

Thursday, February 7th, 2008

More snow has fallen in Moscow, Idaho since 1993…at least that’s what we were told. Here’s our backyard after the snow last night. Notice how high the snow is compared to our backyard fence and the chairs. It just kept falling & falling!

Before Thursday’s snow, here’s how much snow was on our branches!
