Head on over to Java's place and join us.


1. How do you order your steak?
I order my steak medium, I use to do medium rare but medium is still pretty rare when you go out to eat. I had a delicious steak on Friday evening with a thick black olive paste on it at Mario's Place in Riverside, CA.

2. Are you superstitious about anything?
No I don't think I am.

3. Who is your best friend (not including your spouse)?
I can't answer that for sure. I have several.

4. When is the last time your wore a dress (for the guys...a suit)?
Oh my, it could be as long as almost 9 years ago at our daughters wedding.

5. Do you have any trips scheduled?
No, I think I did enough this year but hope to go maybe in February to see my dad in Florida and I think my brother will be visiting him from Wisconsin.


So I came across a recipe yesterday that I think you should try. Go over and visit my friend Tonja at Tonja's Gatherings for this recipe, it's a Paul Dean one. I was wondering what we would eat, was reading her blog and realized that I had all of these items! It was so easy and it tastes amazing so head on over & grab this potato soup crock pot recipe.

Have a great week.

I like wearing dresses, but find it quite hard to find any nice ones (that fit). During the summer months I usually wear them quite a bit though.

I like wearing dresses and still will often wear one to church even though its not the norm for most people anymore...too dressed up!

Have a nice week!

LynnMarie said...

I have 1 dress to my name to wear in the winter. I've lost too much weight and none of the others fit. I'm not in a hurry to go shopping for any right now because it's so cold here that I'm wearing pants right now. Have a great day.

I love dresses especially sun dresses. I never get dressed up much though. Hubby and I will do this like once a year, and go to a really nice restaurant.

I like to wear dresses in the summer, but in the winter, I'm too cold to wear dresses. ;-)

Christina Lee said...

I'm trying to imagine the olive paste!

Hilary said...

I can't imagine not wearing a dress for so long....

EmptyNester said...

Yummy, potato soup sounds just right for a cold day like today! Just what Hubs needs after working outside all day long!

Mary said...

You've really been on the go these past few months! I'm sure it'll be nice to "just breathe" and enjoy the holidays! :D

Oh Lord how I hate dresses, loved them when I was thinner. Something like looking like tent ... lol

You always have fun visitors & and trips :)

chele said...

I'm definitely a dress wearer and I never order steak when I go out. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!

Jo-anne (Blossy) said...

I'm with you on the steak. Medium to medium-rare for me :)
A trip to Florida sounds lovely!
Have a great week!

Carrie said...

I'm not superstitious either - just one more thing to worry about.

blueviolet said...

Anything in the crockpot suits my fancy!

You're so right about restaurants cooking it even more rare than ordered. That almost always happens.

Michelle said...

I previously ordered my steaks medium well until it came out too tough. Now I order it medium. My hubby likes it medium rare.

We went to Fl over Thanksgiving holiday. It was nice to see family and friends again.

Hope you have a wonderful week.

The soup sounds great, and you know how much I love my crockpot!

Amiko said...

Too bad that I am not used with western soup. Though, I like steak..^^

I used to eat spicy and tasty food. And when I eat my steak, I will add chili sauce.

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by.

Oh I love a good potato soup this time of year! With a loaf of fresh bread, yum :-)

I only wear dresses in the summer, when it's so hot even wearing underwear is a torture. I still wear them UNDER my dresses, LOL!

Enjoy the soupies!
