The Fourty

I'm attempting something to kick up my awesome. I don't have a lot of awesome going on... but there will be some awesome if it kills me. I'm grabbing 40 recipes just a whim short of 'at random' and cooking them. I feel a bit cheap, because I'm just stealing them off food porn sites that a hundred other people have tried... I should be making up my own, but right now I don't have the wherewithal to handle it.

To be noted I will be making something similar or inspired by or exactly the recipes listed.

  1. Lavender Brigadeiro from Patricia Scarpin at Technicolor Kitchen
  2. Soy-glazed Flank Steak by The Bitten Word
  3. Red Bean Spinach Soup by Jessie at EatStudy
  4. Pasta with Summer Squash, Sausage, and Goat Cheese over at Use Real Butter (A name I highly support)
  5. Homemade Pita Bread and Hummus at Savouring Time in the Kitchen
  6. Taste the Sun... Then Play In It Fruit Salad at Healthy. Happy. Life.
  7. A perfected BLT inspired by Lick My Balsamic
  8. Spring Yogurt as made by One Particular Kitchen
  9. Mozzarella scratch made inspired by Kristen
  10. Hard cheese inspired by the rennet instructions I bought for the cheese that Kristen inspired
  11. Fried Cheese Curds inspired by squeaky cheese
  12. Roasted Red Peppers Stuffed with Quinoa and Feta with Balsamic reductions ~ Kristen
  13. Cheesy Grilled Pepper Poppers by a blog I've since forgotten :/
  14. Cream of Leek and Parsnip Soup posted on Ceramic Canvas
  15. Indian Cardamon Mava Cakes from my nemesis Tartlette
  16. Frothy Mint Lemonade over at Eat Make Read
  17. Quinoa with Summer Vegetables on Karina's Kitchen
  18. Pasta with Bacon Peas and Ricotta posted by Junglefrog Cooking
  19. Chocolate Ginger Cookie a Martha Stewart recipe baked at Food Gal by Carolyn
  20. Butter Mints inspired by a woman at a catering gig
There. The first 20. These are link intensive, more so than I should make them probably, but I'll post the next soon.

Man... I've left all my foodies high and dry lately. I'll see what I can do. Maybe blog my catering gigs.

I Got A Puppy! I Got A Puppy! I Got A Puppy! Hey Hey Hey Hey!

This morning dawned sadly, tossing and turning in my sleep with a tear evoking dream about my Carson. I woke breifly with tears in my eyes. I had been petting her. Spending time with her... and then it struck me that it was past. Too late to pet her silky neck flaps and tousle her ears. I miss her so much. She was a beautiful sweet kind mischievous friend and nothing can ever replace her.

I miss too though, having a dog at all. I'm not one to be stingy with doggy love, or to clam up with heartache forever. I'm prepared to give some love, maybe a puppy and maybe too a adopt-a-dog. I've been asking for weeks...

An hour or so later Mum woke me again, this time with a call. A call for puppies. Free labs had been advertized on the radio that morning. We drove out a little before noon. Three were already gone... and there was a really really handsome boy, but meet our girl.... (no name).
