Tired of Pumpkin Pie?

Apple and pumpkin pie

My favorite Food Network chef is Ina Garten better known as Barefoot Contessa. Ina’s meals are not always low-calorie, but you can believe they’re definitely worth tasting. In the following video, Ina prepares a Pumpkin Banana Mousse Tart – this is an alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday.

Run Out of Birthday Gift Ideas for Your Spouse?

Birthday Gift Ideas

Today is my wonderful husband’s birthday.  We have been married for ten beautiful years. Anyone who’s been married that long – knows that marriage takes work.  We don’t always agree on everything; but we do agree that we will at times disagree.   I have a short list of gift ideas below:

Watch – but he never pays attention to time, because he’s always running late.  I always said, “You’ll be late to your own funeral”. Time is of no essence.

Tool set – never uses tools, he’s too busy working and would rather call a repair man to make necessary home repairs.

Cologne – I’ve purchased for him the likes of Cartier’s “Declaration” and Gucci’s “Guilty Intense”, but he rarely remembers to spray them on, so the pretty cologne bottles just sit there.  If I were not a woman, I would spray some on every now and then.  They smell really good.  No kidding.

Since I don’t think he’ll do anything with the gifts listed above, I’ve decided to surprise him with a wonderful dinner at his favorite restaurant.  Lone Star Steakhouse, yes this is where he truly feels like he’s king.  Men + meat + potatoes + beer = Great combo and definitely puts a smile on his face.  Lone Star it is!

What are Your Plans for the Upcoming Holidays?

I would love to spend the upcoming Holidays in New York.  I hear New York is most beautiful during the month of December.  What about you?  If you’re already in New York, where else would you like to visit?

Holiday Travel Plans

This holiday season we are hoping gas prices go down, so that we can take a road trip to New York.  My son has been wanting to visit the Big Apple for a long time now.  So, we are hoping the Winter is not so harsh this year in New York.  But, that may be wishful thinking.
