OMGosh you guys

OMGosh you guys I had the most fun at work today!! The bench tech loaded Windows 7 on a Vista computer. I got to do the speech recognition on it!! Took about 45 minutes to get it all set up! So now I can put the head set w/microphone on & talk to the computer & does what I say with NO mouse Or keyboard! It's freaking awesome! I lost it when it said to say "change this thing" I whipped off the headset & there's Susan cracking up behind me!! LOL best thing is it only listens to me! Susan tried to say a few things but it messed up on her & the tech tried too & nothing! tee hee

I did our taxes on Turbo Tax yesterday, but it will not let me e-file?? Going to have to find out why??

DH worked at the temp place today delivering wicker furniture. He got a nice wicker couch & chair the people were going to throw out?? It's really beautiful!! I'll try & get pictures tomorrow!

I didn't hear from Kellogg's, so called them on Friday. They said it was just not mixed in product. They are sending me a coupon for a free box. I have to call them with the product codes today, I didn't have them on me at work!

Then our kitchen sink clogged up??
Ughhhhhhhhhh we have worked on the stupid plumbing & are not able to get to the clog. I have crawled under my house & ewwwwwwwwww I got to in the middle & started to panic LOL I's a scaredy cat!!! So no kitchen sink for me yet boo hoo plus one of the pipes was cracked so we replaced that & it still leaks lol DH & I had a few choice words for each other!! Yes Dear!!! So have to call a plumber in. I want to switch the pipes under the sink to PVC. We had the P-trap replaced 2 years ago?? I think it should last longer?? No??

Than I found this: Moda Bake Shop
Scroll down to Basket of Turnovers. Is that not too cute!!
Here's what I did with some scraps, was fun next time I'm going to try the half squares too!! I also made it bigger for a baby quilt instead of a wall hanging.

Had a busy day yesterday I put a pork loin in the crock pot, made Harley's food, than fixed breakfast. Went to church, took a nap & made curtains for my living room finally!! I had bought a roll of fabric at a yard sale for 5 bucks. So I got 2 long curtains for the slider & 2 short like toppers. Store bought toppers get lost in that window cause it's huge!! I still have to hem one long one. I also got white poster paper & cut it to fit in my one bedroom window. Neighbor's kitchen door is lined up right there & he's not something I wanna look at ewwwwww plus they have a light from the power company that glares in!

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Baking spray (cooking spray with flour)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda and salt
2 sticks unsalted butter -- (1 cup) softened
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 Tbsp grated lemon zest
1/4 cup lemon juice
4 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt -- stirred to loosen
Sugar Glaze
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice

Heat oven to 325°F. You'll need a 10-cup decorative tube pan or a 12-cup Bundt pan coated with baking spray. In medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder and soda, and salt.

2. In a large bowl beat butter, sugar, lemon zest and juice with mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time until blended. With mixer on low, alternately beat in flour mixture and buttermilk until batter is smooth. Scrape into prepared pan; level top with spatula.

3. Bake 55 to 65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on wire rack 5 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, make the sugar glaze: Whisk glaze ingredients in a small bowl just until combined (sugar will not be totally dissolved). Invert cake from pan onto rack; place rack over a baking sheet. Brush glaze all over hot cake until absorbed (sugar crystals will be evident). Cool completely. Transfer cake to a serving plate and cover. Let cake rest several hours, or overnight, before serving. Store cake covered at room temperature up to 4 days. Cut into thin slices to serve.

Tip: Use lime zest and juice for a zesty alternative
