Random Tuesday Thought and its a guest post!!!!

Ok so dave has been talking about starting his own blog but I told him to start by guesting on mine. Well because I love him, He is hot, also smart, funny and totally awesome. So here we go Welcome Dave to the world of blog with love.

Okay, so here's my Random Tuesday Thought. It's more like something random I saw today. I'm not sure if they do this where you're from, but around here, the shopping carts at the grocery stores are fitted with a "boot" on the back wheels to prevent people from taking them out of the parking lot. So anyway, while we were at a stoplight, we saw this poor, confused old lady desperately trying to push a cart full of her groceries out of the parking lot of Kroger and wondering why it wasn't moving. She was putting quite a bit of exertion into it and looked rather frustrated. I wanted to roll down the window and say "HEY LADY! YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT CART WITH YOU!!"

Poor lady probably lived just down the street and walked to the store for her groceries. But, if so, she probably would have had this problem before. Maybe she's new in town. How much would that suck. So here's to you confused old lady leaving Kroger. May your future shopping trips be less eventful!

Other random thoughts...

Last Monday Amelie was half asleep while Amy, my mom and I were talking and she was responding to some stuff we said. Among her babblings were:
"I'm not a drunk dude!" and "I'm a girl! Not a boy!"

Today, I attempted to play Wii Boxing with the girls. Amelie actually did better than Audrey.

I've had too much to drink at this point...so I'm done.

And that's my thought for the day, as Mort Crim would say. But unless you're from the Detroit area, you probably don't know who that is...

My heart is whole again!

He is home. Safe and sound. His mom left this evening. He is at the ship for the evening. Duty days are no fun. Man how I missed him. Now the real journey begins. Its so nice to be held again. I missed that.

We took him lunch on the ship it was nice to get to hang out. I wish I could have taken him home right away, but duty called. (lol, he had duty and had to stand watch on the ship.)

Always a gentleman he held my stuff on the ship and he bought me roses.

the girls and I made this awesome sign and hung it on the porch. I plan on using it for lots of stuff. Because we really do love our daddy around here. He rocks!!!
Waiting for him at the pier was really exciting. It was a little chilly since it was still early but it was really nice.

Savories on Sunday

Ok so I have figured out part of the picture problem. I now know that it is the new memory cards. I'll fiddle around with that later but for now enjoy the taste sensation I just cooked up.

I am calling this Tropically Tasty Curry

1 14 oz can Trader Joe's light coconut milk
1 28.2 oz can bionaturae organic crushed tomatoes
1 20 oz can crushed pineapple, drain as much liquid as possible
1 15.5 oz can organic great northern beans, drained and rinsed (I added these at the end for a little protein, but they added something special)
cumin seeds
turmeric I just eyeball the seasonings whatever looks right to me.
ground coriander
curry powder

1 good sized onion, sliced up (I didn't worry at all about the pieces being the same size)
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
4 yukon gold potatoes, cut into little sticks (you can cut the potatoes in whatever small shape you like)
A few good sized hand fulls of fresh green beans, cut in to bite size pieces
1 head of cauliflower, cut into bite size pieces
3 small yellow squash, sliced into rounds
oil, i used safflower

Put some oil in the bottom of the pan over low to medium heat, depending on if you are still cutting veggies or not. Add the onion, let it get translucent. THen add the cauliflower and potatoes, cook a few minutes. Add squash, garlic and beans. Add spices. Stir well. Add all the canned ingredients. Simmer until the veggies are to your desired texture i like mine to still have some crunch left in them. I plann on serving this with rice or quiona. I made it today to serve later in the week. Most of it will get frozen for later.
