   BirdsNest posted on Health & Diet  I just had a delicious new onion...
Pink. It is a sweet onion. Kind of looks like a red onion but very delicious. I cut one up and cooked it with chicken legs in oven. Only other addition was S&P. The chicken was bland compared to the onion. I ate all of the onion.

   BirdsNest  The store must have gotten those by mistake because when I asked the produce people they had a blank look. Will probably never see them again. Maybe I will ask the manager next time I see him.

   BirdsNest  The onions would not sell at the original price so they deep discounted to move them out. They do not plan to bring them in anymore.

   BirdsNest posted on Suggested Viewing/Listening  So tell me, has anyone seen "The Departed"? With a goodly number of recognizable actors. A Scorcese film. Very bloody. I watched the whole movie. It was okay. A bit draggy in some areas. Accents seemed to switch on and off.

   BirdsNest posted on Blessings  This Thursday marked the one year anniversary of my beloved Hagar's passing. A rough week for sure. I spent the day in mostly silence asking friends to refrain from calling or texting me. I spoke only a few words to the lady at the funeral home when I went by to pay on my bill. Otherwise I just reflected on life and love. I am blessed with many friends.

   HopeandGlory  (Hugs Birdsnest ) I know this has been a hard year for you . . . I'm so glad that you have a lot of loyal friends to see you through this very difficult time.

   BirdsNest  Thanks Hope. Earlier that week I got a call from a lady that used to have our UPS route. She is retired but she saw a man in a local diner that had a ponytail that triggered a remembrance of Hagar and she was moved to phone me. Hagar was fond of her and she of him. Its times like that that grab my heart. Folks that get reminded of him and share......

   MeiDei  It's good for you to share/talk about him, part of the healing process. Sometimes we even learn something special from others that may surprise, delight or explain an unknown. I believe God provided the prompt & moved that lady to call you - & am glad she did. Consider it a blessing upon which more will be added to.

   StormCnter  The heartache of losing someone we love never goes away, but I have read that after the first year anniversary, it's a bit easier to face the important days in your life because it's no longer the "first without". I hope that is true for you. Precious memories are a solace, but you already know that.

   BirdsNest posted on Recipes  Yesterday I made 2 loaves of bread from recipes I got in my e-mail from bread machine diva. One was Banana Oat bread and the other was Raisin bread. I loved the raisin bread because it had lots of raisins in it and a touch of cinnamon. I have made another banana bread that was good, but this one was better. Half of each loaf is bagged to give away. I am a pushover for bread so I have to give most of it away to keep myself from eating too much of it.

colate-chip-double-bundt-cake.html


I don't think I want to make this a double decker cake, but a single Bundt cake would be delicious. I have had chocolate chips on the brain this week......I have several chocolate chip cookie recipes earmarked but I think a cake would be better. Easier to take one slice out of and gift the rest. Cookies would be too easy to hoard and eat and eat and eat.....

   BirdsNest  Made Hawaiian bread recipe into rolls last night. I will have to get someone else's take on them....I really couldn't taste them. I have the bulk of the bread to give away today. I still have half a loaf of Rasin bread left. I will probably give that to the chickens. I have gotten tired of eating it( Did I really just say that? ).

I don't see how you can go wrong with cream cheese frosting.

   BirdsNest  You could put cream cheese frosting on a hockey puck and it would be delicious.

   BirdsNest posted on Movies & Reviews  I got bored with reading books and rented two movies this week.
Jason Bourne a bit predictable with the chase scenes. Wondered why the 2 characters did not at least cover there heads while running from the bad guys, especially the female with long blond hair. Loved the ending though, wished he could have killed the bad guy twice.

Reacher with Tom Cruise....all of the Reacher books I have read were much more interesting than this movie. It was sort of bland. Maybe TC is getting too old to play the tough guy. I have not read this book but I will and I sure hope I like it better than the movie.

That said, is there anything out on home video that is worth watching?

   GO3  See my review of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back from Jan. 6. It was bland because it was basically a remake of Lethal Weapon 1.

   BirdsNest  I did remember someone from here commenting the movie was blah, but I was desperate for something to watch so I wasted $1.58 to rent it. Anyone seen the movie Pets?? I had seen some bits as trailers but don't know if they were the only cute/funny parts of the movie.

   StormCnter  You mean "The Secret Life of Pets"? I watched it while I ate my lunch one day a while back. It was cute.

   BirdsNest posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Bought some onion sets today. Will plant them at the appropriate time. If I wait too long they will dry out in WalMart because no one cares how live plants etc are treated. Maddening.

   BirdsNest posted on Health & Diet  Apple Cider Vinegar with "mother". Braggs is one, but pricey at $6.89 at our store for a qt. Found WalMart organic brand for $4.44 qt. I bought some because I want to make Fire Cider. Good for colds and flu. Takes 3 weeks to marinate the vegs(onion, garlic, fresh ginger ). If you have access to fresh Tumeric that's good too, but not here.

   BirdsNest  The fire cider will be ready in about 10 days but I tasted it yesterday. I like the taste. Once it is steeped I am supposed to strain out the solids and add cayenne and honey. I may skip the honey, as I said I already like the flavor.

   BirdsNest  Fire Cider finished. Tastes really good. Gave half to my friend who is an EMT and is always around sick people. I am making her a whole qt. just for her. One spoonful daily...anything to keep the cold or flu away.
