Ann's quote of the night: "I can sew and tie off a button. That's a useful skill when I get married. Especially if he's big. 'Pop! Honey! I lost another button!' '*sigh* Oh, dear.'"
I wonder if she’s planning to marry the Incredible Hulk…?
For several months I've been setting of store security systems maybe half the time when passing through. The kids found this rather funny and started taking bets if the alarm would go off. (There was much cheering either way, which I'm sure looked pretty odd.) Recently, I took the plastic card holder out of my wallet for some reason and found one of those RFID tags wedged way in the back of its slot. So, if you buy someone a wallet for Christmas, be sure to tell them to take out the tag. Or, depending on your demeanor, make sure it's really stuffed in there...
Recently the kids and I ate at Red Robin. They were holding a contest where people would send in their ideas for a burger. The winning concept would then be featured on the menu. Since seeing that the kids and I have been experimenting with various burger options at home. We’ve made ham and cheese burgers where cubes of ham and cheese were stuffed into the middle of a patty, a Mexican burger for which I cannot recall the recipe, and Ann's Pizza Burger.
To replicate this, make patties (I use ground turkey, egg, bread crumbs, pasta sauce, and salt and pepper). Cook for a bit. Spread pizza sauce on top, add toppings, (I used diced tomatoes, some sliced ham cut up and fried for a bit, and onions), add a pinch of the Italian herb mix, then top with mozzarella cheese, (soy cheese for William). Broil to melt the cheese. I've never seen the kids eat dinner so fast.
My name is Karyl F. Stein and this is my website. I have several interests and this is a place to collect artifacts related to them. Family and friends may enjoy the blog entries. Perhaps my kids will someday wonder how I prepared a certain meal and look up the recipe here. Searches of the Internet for technical setup or configuration help may lead to one of my articles on networking or home automation. Others may wonder how they got to this site and quickly run away!
