Beef Sausage Rolls

It has been a very busy past 2 weeks for me hence I wasn’t able to write at all. Wow, last night I saw in the news Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance.  It was a shocker, to say the least.  And I felt a twinge of sadness for her.  My family used to watch Hannah Montana …

‘Tis the Season anyway!

OK so here I am, heavy with beef stroganoff for lunch finished with a piece of that chocolate beehive and cafe au lait, fighting the urge to answer the call of my bed and pillow.  It sure is difficult to ignore this lethargic moment seeing that Deefa is right here curled up on my lap …

It’s 12.12.12 and all you can think of are CHOCOLATE BEEHIVES???

I have finally succumbed to my wish to have my own blogsite.  Duh, almost everyone is blogging about this and about that and I thought, hmmm, I know I did it before (‘cept I got pretty busy doing other things) so well… why not again?  I know I am not really a writer, but I …
