number 1: I check blogs a little obsessively. It is a cheap thrill when I click a link & see a new title. my heart skips a beat and I savor the new post. However- I have some deadbeat friends who aren't such consistent posters- and I just cannot deal with all the disappointment: click, nothing new, back button. click, nothing new, back button. to save me time (and disappointment) I've ditched the friend list & added a BLOG ROLL that shows all my friends in order of most recent posts. This will save me lots of time.
number 2: best recipe ever: i saw this recipe on the food network one day while i was on the treadmill. The idea of watching food tv while on a treadmill is kinda like the proverbial "carrot on a string," except less....proverbial. Anyhow- this guy, named Guy Ferari, was making cheesy garlic bread. this is not the exact recipe but it is what I do and it is to die for.
--how can you make cheesy garlic bread even less healthy? add mayo! I'm not kidding- just try this & you will be amazed...
Mix equal parts mayo & butter (I use light mayo & brummel & brown low-fat yogurt butter). then mix in LOTS of garlic & freshly grated Parmesan cheese. spread on the bread & bake at 325 for a while- broil to finish & add garlic salt.
Jack, Patty, and Ash- I know you, and I KNOW you will love this delicious bread. yum.
