Dwarf Lemon Tree

I absolutely LOVE Gurneys, & these Dwark Lemon Trees are the cutest! They have a couple different Dwark Citrus trees available, & are not expensive. I use lemons for everything, & this little guy would be a good addition. Plus, they smell awesome! Here's the link!

Cravin' SUSHI!!

Mmm.. I usually can only get Jakey to go to Zen House once a year, on my birthday. And I'll usually try something new. Last year was Tempura-Battered Squid! (It was super delish, BTW!)So, now if I can get Therese to find something she likes there, I can get more sushi-dates! See you for sushi!

BWW Sauce Recipes!!

Since I've discovered Buffalo Wild Wings, I've become a woman OBSESSED!! SUCH yummy food, and more TV's than a Sony Store!! AND, I found the copycat recipes for the sauces! (YAYY!!)

Laughing at You - BAHAHAHAHA!!

Ok, who DIDN'T hear about Facebook becoming a paid site starting in July?? (whatta crock!) I'm laughing at all the ppl who joined the group, cause it's probably another virus! So, here's the rest of the story..

Applebee's Spinach Appetizer 'Za.. YUMM!!

This is my Dad & I's favorite appetizer at Applebee's- Sooo creamy, & Delish! It wasn't on the menu for awhile, so I HAD to find the recipe! And now you can try it too, my lovelies!!

Applebee's Spinach Appetizer Pizza (copycat)

6 whole pita breads ( I seem to remember them being on a tortilla, though!)
1 package (10 oz. size) frozen spinach
1/3 cup yeast
1 medium onion
6 plum tomatoes
1 package (8 oz. size) fresh mushrooms
4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon each: basil, parsley, cayenne pepper
(I'd also add some chopped artichokes!)
1/2 cup milk, more if needed
4 tablespoons flour

Thaw spinach completely, press out all water. Heat milk in saucepan, when hot but not boiling stir in flour. Stir until sauce begins to thicken, turn heat down. Add yeast and spinach. Stir constantly until thick and gooey, only about 3-4 min. In separate pan, sauté onion, garlic, until onion is tender. Stir in tomatoes, mushrooms, and spices. Sauté until just done. Preheat oven to 425°. Using a very sharp bread kni fe, split each pita bread so that you have two round flat pieces instead of one thick one. Place each piece of bread on a cookie sheet or pizza pan. Spread spinach sauce over each. Top with tomato mixture, being careful to avoid the juice. Bake for 5 to 7 min. Watch closely so that the edges of the pita don't burn. Makes a nice crunchy crust.

Donate My Dress

Ok, I am a SUCKER for a good cause, & I came across this the other day- Whatta GREAT idea!! Who doesn't have a closet with a no-longer-worn special occassion dress in it?? I know I do! This gives other girls the chance to feel like a Princess for the night! I'm thinking of maybe hosting an event after the wedding!

Mrs. O'Leary-Cronquist vs the Job

So, after the wedding, I'm planning on possibly looking to pick up another part-time job. I'm still at Four Seasons, but their 'legal process' is moving soo slow. Maybe Avon again, that was fun. I know that I'm absolutely NOT interested in serving food, or cleaning rooms. I already serve food at Seasons, and I REFUSE to do Housekeeping again! Blech! Hoping I can find Front Desk, Customer Service-type job- That's my forte anyways, so I'll stick with that! AND, I'm still selling on eBay, but that's on hold because my PayPal may have been hacked into.. again! Also looking to pick up a couple more photo shoots.

And my school is on hold too.(I'm working on my Degree in Marketing). Between planning the wedding, summer (no excuse there LOL!), and not having enough hours at work, I'm a bit behind :( Wheeeew! Been a busy girl- let's add more BAHAHA!

Keep your ears open for me!
Talk soon-
