Fabulous Friday Funnies

Happy Friday Everyone! Hope you have had a good week! I found a cute funny for today. For anyone who's ever owned a pet, I'm sure you can relate to this one some level.
I went into the kitchen after carrying the groceries in, to put them away. On the floor was a bread wrapper without any bread in it, and it looked like it had been sliced open with a knife. My trusty pet was laying beside it with her tail wagging and her paw on the empty carcass of the bread wrapper. I am not sure exactly how quickly she wolfed down that loaf of bread, but it had to have been a record.

Camping Cooking Bacon & Eggs in a Paper Bag

Camping Cooking Bacon & Eggs in a Paper Bag. What an idea! I figured with summer and camping going on, I would post some tricks or hints for camping.
I may have to try this, just to see how it works. It does make sense, but when we go camping we generally have skillets and such, but I have a couple of friends who love to go backpacking alone. This is something that might work great for that. Let me know your thoughts!

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Happy Krazy Klassy Kitchen Monday folks! I was looking at some kitchens and found some that were titled as "Rustic". This caught my eye and I spent some serious time looking through the different kitchens. I'm not sure how these appeal to you all, but I love them. I'm a country girl and simple works real well for me, however, some of these are really "Klassy!" Let's take a look at the first one.
I can just smell the hot chocolate and see the snow swirling outside of the beautiful kitchen. I love the stone are where the stove is inset. That is marvelous! There seems to be good counter space, and plenty of storage with the island. I like the accents of the wood beams in the ceiling, however, I'm not real fond of the lighting that they have in the kitchen. I would most certainly change that up. Let me know your thoughts.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Good Morning All. I have a lovely pic for today's Klassy Kitchen. I really enjoy the contrast between the white, or perhaps ivory cabinets with the black stove and the black in the clock on the wall. Very nice.
I like that the kitchen seems to have a good amount of storage space. I do like the rounded cabinets on the end as well as those on the island. I would prefer a different flooring then what they have. I would be concerned that this flooring would show dirt and scuffing do to the color of it. I think a nice wood floor would accent it will. I'm not a real fan of the light fixture either. It does not look like there would be enough lighting in the kitchen to see well.  However, all in all, a very nice one.

Italian Cooking Tips & Tricks with Chef Cristian Feher

Ahhh who doesn't love Italian? Here are some great tips for Italian cooking. The second tip is one that I have seen several times, but still a good one! As for the first tip, I have always done what he does, but never realized why my mother in law (Italian) would have me do that.
I cook with fresh garlic now, but didn't for years because the ex-husband didn't like garlic. This is pretty comical considering his mom was Italian. Enjoy the tips and have a great day!

5 Things to Know About Ants in the Kitchen--News Wednesday

5 Things to Know About Ants in the Kitchen is our news article for today. Interestingly enough, I cannot stand ants. Something about them attacking me on my potty chair when I was little, it's all a trauma blur. Considering that this is one of the times of the year that people tend to have to fight ants in their kitchens, I thought the article would be a good read!
One point of this article I was completely not aware of at all! I know that ants can be attracted to sugary things such as the kids' spilled soda or koolaid. Been there, done that! However, I didn't realize that some ants are attracted to grease. If you want to read the article yourself, you can click the link here.
