Back to Blogging!

Boy I did not realize I have been so busy in life that I have gone a whole month and a few days without blogging. I am a very bad girl. I really am trying to stay off the computer at night so I can walk with hubby and talk with him too. But tonight he has a meeting so I can do my thing while watching Dancing with the Stars. Boy do I love this show. I am so hoping that one of the girls win. I do think Gilles is hot but Cherly has enough trophies it is time to have new blood win the mirror ball. I personally want to see Melissa win. I love Tony and he is so deserving. This is the first time he has had a partner get him to the finale. Well we only have 20 minutes and we will know the winner. Let me know if your favorite one. Have a great night and remember we all are Stars in our own way.

Well last night I got my son Arby's for dinner. He got the Regular Beef N Cheddar sandwich wrapped in there foil. Well he decided to wait to eat them at home. We walk in the door he goes to the microwave and throws the sandwich, wrapper and all into the microwave. Two seconds later my daughter is screaming FIRE! Yes the apple does not fall far from the tree. Now my son has caught the microwave on fire. Boy do wrappers go up in flame fast. LOL. We will definitely be eating out not taking out food. LOL. Have a great day.

Thank God for my Hubby!

I cannot cook. It is a known fact. I have caused one oven fire from chicken nuggets, one microwave fire from frozen biscuits and a Styrofoam plate and now I have succeeded in catching a George Foreman on fire. I officially turn my kitchen over to who ever wants it. LOL. Last night as I was trying to cook a burger on the Foreman I notice smoke. I assume that it is the grease from the burger and no big deal. Well hubby comes in the kitchen and says do you realize the Foreman is on fire. WHAT? He walks over to the counter and notices that I was cooking the cord instead of the burger. LOL. Thank God he caught it when he did or we would have had no kitchen or house left. I guess the George will continue to work for the next time hubby wants to use it. But I will not be using it or any other appliance in my kitchen. As my sign over my oven reads. Kitchen closed this chicks gone to Walmart. Of course it needs to read Kitchen closed this chicks at a restaurant. LOL. Happy Cooking and Eating to All of You! I am off to McDonald's LOL.

What is Wrong with our Weather?

Just like this picture I don't know how to dress either due to our crazy weather. Warm one day, freezing the next, rainy the next then so windy I feel like I will be picked up and blown away. LOL. MD had the motto "If you don't like the weather stay a day it will be different." I think SC will have to adopt this motto too because I really thought I lived in the South but outside definitely feels more like MD where we are from. This is the coldest winter I have ever experienced here and we have been in Charleston since 1997. I really worry about this Hurricane season. If you go back in history to when Charleston has had hurricanes the winter has been brutal and had snow. Let's see 1989 Hugo they had snow that January. 1999 Floyd we had snow in January. This was the first snow my kids ever saw. But we where not this cold in 1999. We still were wearing shorts in March. Now 2009 we had snow in January and February will this be the year? Mind you snow here means a flake or too. But 1989 it actually stayed on the ground. Some cities did get snow on the ground in February this year just not where we live. This year we have had a few shorts wearing days but not very many and this is April. I do think our blood thins living here due to the humidity so anything under 70 seems to be cold to someone living here over 3 years. LOL. I look forward to warm weather that stays warm. This year our pool is not even opening to May last year it was April. Shows what a difference a year makes. I guess we will be singing Wind, Wind go away please don't come another day! LOL.

Perfectly Frank's

Our friends took us yesterday to a really cute restaurant right off Main Street in Summerville at 119 West Doty Avenue called Perfectly Frank's. This is a hot dog joint that also sells Hamburgers and Tacos. The hot dogs have some really great names and come with toppings I would not have thought of. Such as the Frank Morgan which has mac and cheese, or how about a Frankie Avalon which has homemade creamy slaw. I had the Frank that was a hot dog with mustard, I know boring, but that is me. Now my son had the Benjamin Franklin with there homemade chili and cheese sauce. The Anne Frank is a turkey dog with Swiss cheese, slaw and spicy mustard. Excellent french fries with sea salt and vinegar, yummy and great prices. The Frank cost 1.95 and is huge hot dog. Note to peanut allergies they do fry in 100 percent peanut oil. So if you are in Summerville and craving a dog go check out Perfectly Frank's.
