Happy Haunting!

Here are a couple recipes to warm your bones on this cold Halloween. I found this Chipotle Black Bean Chili in the October issue of Midwest Living. 

And this little number is for all the "mummies" out there...get it? Mummies? {so sorry} It's a Pumpkin Spice Martini from Shecan2cook at
It's sure to keep you nice and toasty!

Happy Haunting!

It's 5:00 Somewhere and a Surprise

Today is one of those perfect fall days. Sunny, breezy, 70ish. The perfect day for an Autumn beer. Yes, i know it'd the middle of the day, but it's a perfect beer day!

This is my lunch companion- Mr. Samuel Adams and his Octoberfest nectar

 These are my other lunch companions-waiting for a hand out {yeah, they all got a bit of pretzel}

The trees are just starting to come into their full Autumn splendor

                  Have you tried hard cider? It's delightful- great with something spicy like the black bean chill I'm making tonight!

This was the lovely surprise i came home to today! Nice, right? Yup, this morning this was a cute little fluffy owl minding it's business, perched sweetly on the staircase- now? Im not so sure. Can't quite put my finger on it, but something not quite the same. Hmmm...

Happy Wednesday!

On A Roll

I'm on a roll. No, literally, i'm rolling everything. Martha says rolled towels take up less space, and if Martha says it, it's probably true! It drove me crazy when my dish towels would bunch up in the drawer or worse, disappear behind the drawer!
So, i rolled 'em up. And.They.Stay.Put! Love it! I rolled the bath towels, the hand towels and the dog towels. I'm on a bit of a cleaning frenzy. No ones safe when i'm in this mood!
Do you know the Fly Lady? Hop on over to and get caught up in the clean {well, we're not catching up, we're jumping in!} I bought her duster {i feel so Downton Abby, dancing around with my duster!} and her purple rags, and i just have to say, amazing!
Do you get the cleaning bug?

Happy Tuesday!
