My Cup Runneth Over


As some of you may remember back in January I was nominated for a Stylish Blogger Award. Click the link if you want to read that post again – Stylish Blogger Award.

This last week I was nominated again. Not once. But twice.

Once by Barb Hopkins (@iamwritermom),  and once by Felisha Wild (@ChefFelisha.)

You may remember Barb. She was a Guest Blogger here at MTTD and shared her marvelous Ice Cream Deluxe Cake recipe with us. Click the link to get the recipe again. Thank you Barb for making my cup runneth over. Barb has a blog, but has temporarily suspended it, so I cannot link to it.

You may also remember Chef Felisha. I nominated her for a Stylish Blogger Award last January. You can visit her blog , OurDailySalt , by clicking the link. Thank you Felisha for making my cup runneth over, too.

I am both thankful and grateful for the honor and recognition and for the opportunity to pass it on.

At first I thought about not participating this time round. But upon further reflection I decided that would be like a slap in the fact to the two wonderful friends who so honored me. It would also be very selfish of me.

But more importantly I decided to participate in order to be able to spotlight some new bloggers who have really great and stylish blogs. It is a pleasure for me to introduce them to MTTD readers.

These are the rules for accepting a Stylish Blogger Award:


1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award. – done

2. Share 7 things about yourself. – done with new items

3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers. – done

4. Contact these blogger and tell them about the award! – done

Seven New Things About Me.

1. My favorite color is blue; I decorate my home in neutrals with bright splashes of color in turquoises, greens, and chartreuses.

2. I love 1950’s, 1960’s, and even 1970’s music. Oldies Rock!!!!

3. I love movies but seldom go any more because ticket prices are so expensive.

4. I love to go on long drives and just sightsee, especially in spring and fall. I often head out in a direction with no specific place in mind. Price of gasoline will soon end that enjoyable pastime for me. That is two (movies in #3) of the simple pleasures the recession has taken away from me.

5. My favorite forms of exercise are walking, gardening, and swimming. I do not participate in any formal exercise program.

6. I eat pretty much whatever I want; I just eat less of it and add in a few fruits and vegetables.

7. My favorite TV show is Burn Notice.

Featured Recipe    Homemade Peanut Butter

I have a video recipe for you today. And making this recipe is easy as A-B-C.

This is a great activity to do with your children. They will get a kick out of making and then eating peanut butter they just made.

I was going to make some myself and report on it here. But it would have cost me $6.00 for the peanuts. That’s more expensive than buying jarred Peanut Butter.

I did not have time to day to do any comparison shopping and try to find less expensive peanuts. But I am going to see what I can find next week and report back to you.

However, I think it would be worth the expense to have your children see just how easy this recipe is.

The video tells you everything you need and what to do. The video is less than 1 minute long.



Bon Appetit!!!!

Quote of the Day

People won’t care about how much you know until they know how much you care!
