I don't know which one, but I'm left speechless when it comes to the games those who want to be President are playing in the two main parties. Am I only just now mature enough to be aware of the games? Or is there a whole new set being played? It seems to me that both major candidates are trying their darndest to be as much like the other one as possible! Obama basically picked McCain to be his running mate, and McCain is pandering so much to women who want change, but not from a black man, that he ought to be embarrassed. I'm disgusted.

That was what Mr. Cavehair's boss exclaimed after popping not just any ordinary bacon wrapped-cheese-stuffed-jalapeno. My camera is broken and its really too bad, because not only did these things taste amazing, they really turned out pretty attractive too.
I'm going to tell you my secret to these awesome little party-poppers...roll them in brown sugar!
Split your jalepeno in half up to the cap, but don't separate the halves, clean out the seeds and veins. Stuff each WHOLE jalapeno with 1/3 of a mozzerela cheese stick. Wrap each jalapeno in one slice of THIN sliced bacon ( it wraps better than thick...trust me on this) and then roll each bacon wrapped jalapeno in brown sugar. Place on a wire rack over a foil lined baking sheet. Bake in a 450 oven until sugar has begun to caramelize and the bacon is crisp. Then roll the jalapenos over, turn on the broiler and finish the second side under the broiler for a couple of minutes. ( if you turn and then bake until the second side is caramelized, I'm certain the jalapeno will be overcooked and mushy inside). These are a great treat to take to a cookout or other casual party. Enjoy!

Not even the Yak bit could beat one woman's "elbow deep in boogers" story.

Who will it be? Somebody, who shall remain nameless, got roped into "performing" tonight at the ward "Last Comic Standing" party. The prize for winning is 2 stand-by(e!) roundtrip tickets anywhere Southwest Airlines flies, so wish that person some good mojo!

To all of my friends with an excellent sense of humor and appreciation for satire, you MUST read the SeriouslySoBlessed blog linked on the right hand of this page. I think we have ALL read blogs just like this! ( And even perhaps been guilty of such horrors from time to time)

In preparing for the girls' arrival and wanting them to be able to have some liberty and not be stuck at home all day, I started looking for some bikes this past Spring. I was successful and purchased one for 30 dollars and got another for Free from FreeCycle.
The one I purchased has been the favorite bike of every one in the family. It rides well and has a really fun, retro style. As it should! I just discovered that the classic Kelly Green Schwinn was manufactured in 1973...That is an OLD bike...lol
Perhaps I'll have Annie take a picture of it tomorrow.

Yes, Gabriel, it is. *putting hand down now, and feeling ashamed*
( Now if only I could convince him that hissing, spitting, kicking and screaming was also only for animals!)

This is the most excited Kindergartener I've ever met. He got up, got dressed and told me he didn't want breakfast because he "sure can't be late for the first day of Kindergarten!" (He did eat breakfast by the way) We waited for the school bus, which didn't come, and finally took him to school in the car...he wasn't very happy about that, but its ok, we had planned to meet him at the school anyways, there was no way I was putting him on the bus and waving goodbye.
Once we got to school he couldn't wait to get out on the playground and ran off with some big boys to play kickball. I'm not sure he was supposed to do that, I think he was supposed to stay on the kindergarten playground, oh well. After a few minutes he came up to me and saidm "Mom, when are you leaving?" Make sure and read that with the proper inflection imagined. That was not a concerned "Mom when are you leaving because I don't want you to leave me alone in this strange place with all these new people", that was a "Mom, when are you leaving, 'cuz your crampin' my style" kind of question. When it was time to line up, he was first in line and very patient waiting for all the other kids to get there. Happy 1st Day to Gabe.

This past Friday we decided to mix it up a bit and try something new. We went for Korean BBQ and that was fun. The Beef was really delicious and so was the soup. The fishcake, shredded radish, tofu, and bean sprouts were really great too. I tried to order Kimchi, but the waitress wouldn't let me. She actually said" no, not for you, not for first time...too hot, no, no, not this time"...ok...so I can't order Kimchi? I wanted to try it! So eventually she did bring a small bowl to let us try it and I have to say I'm glad I didn't order a whole serving of it. It wasn't gross, but it wasn't really good either. We had so much fun, but JP wouldnt' let me take a picture. too bad, next time!
