teejay, I think you meant that kilt comment for ann. lol Besides, I've seen the photo shopped pick of the guys in kilts sitting next to the Queen. lol As for the white stuff, at least you didn't get too much. Bet your plow drivers and the graders are out in force. :)

rj, Married to your work and someone else...you just want to be a bigamist. lol That sugar free cake sounds good. :)

Hump Day!!!!!!!!!!!

Spouses Day?!? If a person is married to their work, can they legally get married? hahaha

Ann, I had my first experience with a sugar free cake last Friday in honor of a work retiree. They brought in two cakes..ie one sugar free for diabetics and the like. It had strawberries in the icing.....I am a convert now...it didn't hurt that I had Blue Bell Strawberries and Vanilla to put on top it. I had to play two extra tennis matches to make up for it.

Mad, they didn't get better until recently.

TJ, that is way too much caffeine for me. It kills my natural high!!! lol

Well....it's been an interesting 24 - 36 hours.... I was stuck at home all day yesterday with wind an snow howling. Ended up with over 20 inches at my place. Enough already! Snow predicted for Friday 6+ inches and again for Sunday night into Monday again 6+ inches.

DG, I would be sure to sit appropriately for you (whatever you might want).... Being a true Scot myself, who knows you know what you may see... I would add, turnabout is fair play.

Ann, peanut brittle, I had some at Christmas time, someone, unknown who, brought it to a Christmas party. yummy. Chocolate cake, another treat, have you ever heard of Wacky Cake, it's chocolate and uses baking powder and oil and vinegar I think, you mix the flour and chocolate in a 9 X 9 pan and then make three hole where you add the other stuff, mix and bake, very moist and unique chocolate cake.

RE: Caffeine, tea in the morning at breakfast, Red Rose, usually two bags, then during the day, sometime, coffee, occasionally tea, rarely soda (pop for you mid westerners and coke for those of you from Texas), Pepsi or Pepsi MAX if anything, occasionally iced tea and in the summer, when I can get it, iced coffee.......

Almost to the Hump in the work road.

Dirt, I know right. I fight the system from the second the alarm clock beeps on Monday Mornings. I like tea, but Decaf Reg or Green Tea for me.

Mad, I had literally seen spoons stand up in the old days. The MRE packed ones aren't as bad now as they use to be.

Ann, glad you caught that. Mad and I like physical contact any way we get it...hahahahahahhahahahaha PS, I had some Nutter Butter's and a big glass of milk last night.

Irish coffee is good, peanut butter is one of life's staples, like the spun honey/peanut butter waffle sandwich idea.

I love limes in my gin and tonic Ann....

Did any of you celebrate Robert Burns Day yesterday (Sunday 1/25)? I did, wore my kilt and everything, had a vegetarian "haggis" quite yummy, and a stew with beef and sausage and 'tatoes and onions. And probably too much whiskey, good time though had by all!

Welcome Carleey!

Weather report for Maine, nice today until late tonight then a blizzard, could be record setting so you probably won't see me tomorrow, and Wednesday is questionable... we are looking at up to 2 feet of snow where I live! YIKES!!!
Oh well, we'll survive, we've done this before!

MadDog, Wish it was 65 here. lol

teejay, Lobster has got to be one of the most delicious foods. If our winters don't kill the deer ticks, I don't think yours will. :(

Hi ECase.

rj, MadDog already knows that I hate him. Years of promises of unshipped or lost warm air in the dead of winter is the reason. ;)

Ann!?!? I am surprised at you, New England Chowder is white and creamy.... That Manhattan crap is the red stuff!

Living in New England all my life I have been blessed with a vast assortment of readily available seafood. Fried clams, scallops, oysters, shrimp, seafood chowder, clam chowda, lobster stew, lobster rolls, boiled lobster, broiled lobster, stuffed lobster, lobster thermidor, lobster bisque, lobster mac & cheese, stuffed shrimp, stuffed haddock, sole, flounder, hake........ the list goes on and on.... Probably have seafood at least once if not twice a week.

Enough talk about the warm weather, here in Maine we are running normal temperatures, but the snow is nearly non-existent. Not good for our ski and snowmobile tourism. There is snow in the mountains and up north, but here in the capital and along the coast down south, bare ground all over... Maybe with some really cold temps we can kill off the deer tick population and reduce the incidents of Lyme disease. Let's hope. Heating oil is down to $2.59 more than a dollar a gallon less than last year..nice.

Hey DG, I have played the Hunt the Haggis game for years...They didn't have it this year which was deeply disappointing to a hunter and gather like myself! LOL Now as far as collecting the various bits and pieces, butchers here in Maine can usually gt what I need. Also, check out the article I referenced earlier, you'll never eat haggis again....

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/seasonal-food-and-drink/11350985/Can-you-stomach-making-your-own-haggis.html

Ann, Buttercrunch, sounds good to me!

Popcorn is good, I still have an old electric popcorn maker which I got when I went to college, uses oil and has a thing to melt the butter while the popcorn pops and the lid serves as the serving bowl. The lid is plastic and cracked but duct tape holds it together just fine. Don't like Nutter'Butters....

Popcorn, one of my favorite junk foods. :)

MadDog, s***ing again here. At least it's still warm. :)

teejay, I've had a couple of things from Stonewall Kitchen, pretty good stuff. First, you have to eat only all beef hot dogs, not the mystery chicken and pork ones. lol And where are you going to get a sheep's stomach to cook the Haggis in? Harrods doesn't carry it. ;) Oh look what you started...Hunt the Haggis seems like they're looking for a new web site to host their haggis hunt. Hopefully they'll find one, it sounds like fun. :)

Sorry i missed the Fig Newtons, I love them. Recently got into Stonewall Kitchen's Fig and Ginger spread....highly recommended, available online and for me, it's a Maine based company. I haven't had anything from them that is bad... Check them out.

DG I have both German and Czech heritage as well as Scots and English, so i enjoy a variety of "international" cuisine. Recently read an article about making that famous Scot's dish, Haggis, pretty interesting, other people were commenting on it being gross and disgusting, but I told them to consider the sausage and hot dogs they eat, same contents, just fancier and you don't actually KNOW how they are made. Sometimes not knowing is better... LOL

Planning on celebrating Robert Burns Day on this coming Sunday, the 25th. Not sure if we will have haggis or not, I also love steak and kidney pie....
