Pineapple Jalapeño Guacamole

Pineapple Jalapeño Guacamole

I've come to the conclusion that I will never sleep in again.  My body has been on this schedule for too long and my internal alarm clock doesn't have an off switch.  I'm pretty torn up about this news as sleeping is my second favorite thing to do.  Eating is number one, of course.  
 
I should just be thankful for the extra awake time during the weekends.  Think of how productive I can be waking up before the sun.  Sadly, knowing myself like I do, I know this extra time will be spent laying in bed with coffee, Pinterest and the Food Network.   I enjoy my lazy Saturday mornings.  Don't judge me. 
 
I don't know if I've said this before, but my favorite food group is appetizers.  What?  That's not a food group?  Well, it is to me.  And it's my favorite.  I could go to a restaurant and just order starters.  I love them that much.  In fact, I ate some sort of dip that I threw together for dinner last night.  Don't try to tell me that you don't fill up on chips and salsa at Mexican restaurants.  See?  You like it too!
 
There is something about bite sized food or foods that you can spread onto a cracker or a chip and just pop into your mouth.  It's just easy and casual and maybe that's why I like it.  Casual is how I roll.  Sweat pants are considered casual, right?  
 
Anyway,  I made this particular guacamole for New Years Eve and ended up eating the rest of it for breakfast.  I must have dreamt about it. Told you I love appetizers.  It was the perfect combination of sweet and spicy and don't forget creamy.  It will be a great addition to that big football game coming up in a couple of weeks.  I don't know that I'll be watching.  I was expecting my team to be there.  They just can't get past the first round of the playoffs.  They're obviously cursed.  Man, I love avocados.  I wish I had one right now.   I think my lack of sleep is affecting my common sense right now so I'm just going to post this recipe.

It doesn't get much easer than that!

Everyone Can Use Coupons and Be an Extreme Couponer

This extreme couponing stuff is fun. Who knew? Seriously. When I watched those TLC Extreme Couponing videos in January, I was fascinated and overwhelmed and felt a little queasy about it all -- I really didn't think it looked like fun. The extreme coupon community is so friendly, helpful, encouraging and supportive that I find myself smiling every time I read their blogs and their forums. And it is definitely fun to buy 28 frozen food items and have the Target cashier hand you $15 in Target gift cards after already saving more than $30 on the purchase. That's not just fun, it's down right exciting. The most fun of all is teaching other people how to extreme coupon - and hearing their shopping trip success stories. Best. Feeling. Ever. (OK not ever, but you know what I mean.)   Read more >

OMG I Can't Wait to Be a GrandMother: How Can We Bring On Labor?

I made it to Hawaii and Johnny Mac Pippin's mom looks like she is very ready to bring him into the world -- but Johnny Mac Pippin is not showing any sign of moving. Well he's showing a lot of signs of moving, elbows and knees and feet banging around inside there -- but he's looking altogether too comfortable and I'm ready for him to come out and kick ME a little bit. So how the heck do we convince him that it's time? Are there any tricks for bringing on labor that really work?   Read more >

In an attempt to assist me with this series of pumpkin posts, TW put a couple of savory pumpkin dishes on the menu for this week. I'm sure they'll be fine but as much as love pumpkin, I don't necessarily love pumpkin as a main dish or even as an appetizer.   Read more >
