Twitter has a new Follow button

Yes Twitter's new follow button is the same as it was before, except now, instead of clicking it then being redirected to twitter to follow the company or user, you just click it! So click it... click it good.

Oh yeah, follow me here on Blogger too, I'll start posting more often if you do.. oh wait that's not the greatest incentive.

Later this morning we are going to be piling 7 people into a large Chevy Suburban and driving to Florida for the week. Spring break for me has meant time to drive to Florida and see my mom. Of course I've always taken my kids with me, why wouldn't I?
This year is even more special as my fiance and her kids are coming with me! Dawn, Blonde Blogger, has not met my mom yet in real life but that is about to change. Previous trips to Florida have been fun and I love taking this annual trek but I think it will be even more special this year!
There are some things that are not going to be fun. Like listening to some of the kids fight and hearing my 4-year-old ask if we are there yet every half hour but I will cherish the time and enjoy it all the same.
It's 3:30 in the morning now so I'm going to try to get some sleep before the little one wakes me up in just a few hours.  Good night and have a pleasant tomorrow!

Android mobile blog

I thought I'd do this as a test. I downloaded the mobile application that allows me to post a blog from my phone. Typing isn't the easiest thing in the world, but with the smart keyboard I downloaded it does make it a bit easier.

I'm wondering how formatting the blog and uploading pictures will work. So..  to test it I will upload a silly picture as well. Start a new paragraph


And there.

This is a Google application called Androblogger available for android devices.

Summer Squash Lasagna

I improvised a lasagna made from summer squash, it turned out so good I just had to share it.


2 summer squash, thinly slice lengthwise
2 TBS Olive oil
3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts chopped to bite size chunks
1 medium size onion
2 cloves garlic
1 small jalapeno
1 package frozen spinach
2 cups marinara sauce
10 oz Ricotta cheese
Shredded mozerella cheese

Finely chop the onion, pepper and garlic, sautee in olive oil until onion & garlic begins to carmelize. Add cut up chicken and cook thouroughly. Cook spinach and add to chicken mixture.

In an oiled 9" X 13" pan layer the sliced summer squash. Layer the chicken and spinach mixture over the squash. Layer in the Ricotta cheese, sauce and mozeralla. Repeat layers again ending with mozerella on top, use an ample amount.

Cover and bake in 375 preheated oven for 50 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove, cool slightly and serve. Goes great with Garlic Texas Toast and a glass of red wine!

Follow Through Equals Money

So I've heard anyway.
I signed up as an affiliate with LeapFish.
2 reasons:
1. The first 1000 people that sign up as affiliates are entered into a contest to win a Macbook, and I love me my Macs!
2. I'm always looking for a new way to increase my income streams.

This is the search bar for LeapFish... use it!
Then go here to sign up as an affiliate and start making money with LeapFish.

How do you like them apples?

Someone said it looked like a picture. Very flattering! But not true.
Here is the replay of the drawing. The Facebook application graffiti is powered by intel and records every stroke of the drawing. Here it is:

No I am not asking you to hum us a few bars of that song you once knew.

Tonight I made humus from scratch and wanted to share the recipe.

As you may know humus is made from chickpeas.

  • Take a can of chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans. Rinse under a water flush
  • Put the peas in a blender or food-processor
  • Add 1/2 C. of lime or lemon juice (I used lime as I had no lemon)
  • Let it turn for a while. Until it is “creamy”
  • Add 1/2 C. olive oil
  • Let the mixer turn until the cream is “perfect”. While it turns:
  • Prepare four big garlic cloves (two cloves are enough for most people) I love garlic, I used 4
  • Stop the blender, crunch the garlic with a garlic-cruncher on top of humus, wait 2-3 min for garlic to “mature”, and mix again
  • Serve it cold!

    I used it as a spread on my talapia filet, delicious!
