a new baby, an old couch, some food, my cute dog, and an interview

There is a new, (human, not dog), baby in our family! Yesterday my brother's daughter came in to the world. We will go and see them in Michigan sometime after all the grandparents have had their turn visiting.

In other less important news,


A final goodbye to the old couch. George bought this couch from a furniture store's discount room back in 1996. I have wanted to get rid of it for so long, because I can just imagine the millions of dust mites that live in there, that have been afflicting me for so many years. We're getting a leather couch delivered on Friday, my dream finally come true. The Buffalo City Mission came this morning & took the old couch away. I'm sure it will find a loving home, maybe one day retire and grace someone's front porch downtown.

COOKING WITH JENN



Want an easy meal? Here's my fried rice recipe: Take a bunch of veggies and chop them up really small, maybe include some small chopped up chicken. Cook it all in a pan with some oil & butter. After that looks good, toss in some rice. Stir it up, cook it for a while, and dinner is served.

...................................................

An even easier meal? Buy some of this Wolfgang Puck soup. This is the best canned soup I've ever tasted. Not just this flavor, but all of them. The tomato soup is probably my favorite.

Cute...


Ferocious!

Cute again.

BADOOZIE'S INTERVIEW WITH ME

BaDoozie: What kind of cereal is in your cupboards right now?

Me: The only box of cereal in my cupboard right now is a box of Health Valley real oat bran almond crunch, which George bought, and apparently decided he doesn't like it very much, because it's been there for a while. I need to go grocery shopping.

BaDoozie: If you could have a new car, what kind would you buy?

Me: I would buy a Mini Cooper, and an SUV, maybe a RAV4. If I had the money, I might change my mind... I don't have the money, so I don't really give it much thought.

BaDoozie: What brand of sunglasses do you prefer/wear

Me: Really cheap ones.

BaDoozie: Are you allergic to any foods?

Me: Not that I am aware of.

BaDoozie: What is something adventurous you would like to do?

Me: If I was brave enough, and had the opportunity, I would like to go hand gliding. If it is at all possible though, I'd rather start from the ground and slowly go up higher and higher, rather than leaping off of a cliff, but I don't think it can be done that way.


Want to be interviewed? Let me know.

excellent post...age....yeah

I'm going to try that soup. I used to make stir fry, but then I stopped cooking. Right now i'm eating peppermint ice cream from baskin robbins. i'm probably going to have diarrhea tomorrow.

I want to see a pic of your new leather couch, you'll like it, I'm sure

Emma Sometimes said...

Hurrah for new couches.

I can't wait for pics.

That rice looks good.

Cheap sunglasses are the best (I just bought cheapy ones a week ago)

Skippy's ferocious look is cracking me up. Is it fair your dog has whiter teeth than I do?

Seeker said...

I'll be looking for that couch pic, too.

Right now I'm hungry for some stir fry.

If your powers of suggestion work, I'll soon be eating stir fry on my new leather couch.

Uncle Joe said...

I like your new format with the comments/pics....very cool...

the previous inkblot looks like a puppy jumping on bart simpson's belly...

I feel fine,,,yes indeedy...

Ba Doozie said...

I looked for that soup today. Our Safeway only had the regular, not the organic, I tried it, it's OK, but I'll keep looking for the green can

Jenn said...

ba doozie, interesting, I didn't know they came in non-organic. I take back part of what I said. Today I had the minestrone and the beans were a little crunchy. So that one is not as good.

emma, he has whiter teeth than all of us here.

seeker, so how was your stir fry?

uncle joe, I think you have the most imaginative answer to the ink blot question... except maybe barbara, but she can't say what she saw... whatever it was!

Layla (aka Barbara) said...

Hey, congrats on your new niece! You can send the stale cereal to me, I like that kind

Aunt Jo said...

Mmmmm when is supper tomorrow??

That Skippy is a HAM!!

More baby details please!!!
