Rested and Really?

Good morning! It actually is a good morning and shhhhh it's Monday. It is a beautiful day outside and it is going to get into the 80s today which is our normal for this time of year. The temps here have definitely been below normal until now.

Had a restful weekend. I did not go to lunch with my family on Saturday. It was just too stressful for me to deal with and my sinuses were going crazy all weekend so it was just as well. I cleaned, napped and read on Saturday for the most part. Eating was good. Did not go overboard.  Sunday I did some shopping (returns) and also visited with my friends D & K. They have Yorkshire terriers and this is one of the babies from the last litter. She was the runt and her name is Ruby. She was super squirmy so it took me forever to get a picture and this is the best of them. The momma is preggers again and I am considering getting one of the puppies. I want a girl. I need to come up with a good name... hmmm...

Have you seen the commercials for the As Seen on TV? Yes, I am one of "those" people who fall for their shpeels. I don't always buy them but they always seem to pique my interest. The Orgreenic Kitchenware was my latest purchase. They claim that you don't need to use oil, butter or grease to cook with it. This is from their website:

As you saw on TV, Orgreenic lets you cook healthy food safely and quickly! Because of its super hard, durable all natural ceramic coating, Orgreenic sears in the juices and flavor of your food without releasing toxic gases. And, you don't need to add high calorie oils and butter! Best of all, absolutely nothing sticks to it! Just run the sauté pan under water and it wipes clean!

I tried it for the first time yesterday. I made some sunny side up eggs and it actually worked just like they said it would! They slide right out with no scraping and they were done perfectly. I was pleasantly surprised! One of the cool benefits of this pan is that it can go from the stove top to the oven so you can bake, broil, braise, fry, steam and saute in the same pan. Can't beat that huh? I will try other things in it and let you know how it holds up. Do you ever buy the As Seen on TV items? Until next time...


  1. Hi Katie,

    Awww...what a cute little Yorkie. She looks to be very small. I've never seen the program you mentioned in your post. The Orgreenic Kitchenware sounds interesting. What a good thing for those of us trying to cut fat and calories!

  2. I think Paco's best friend is a Yorkie - man, that little dog can JUMP! She's a cute spaz, lol. A puppy would be fun to have, though!

  3. We had a Cairn named Candy Queen. I loved that dog.

    I have see the Orgeenic commercials and I was like hmmmm..... I was skeptical about the rocks. I may think about it though. I really want pans I can put in the oven though.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
