    What do you like to do with leftovers?

    We have a lot of leftovers at work sometimes & I like to find ways to incorporate them into other recipes or create something new with them in order to get them used up so they don't go to waste.  Especially in these trying economical times. One thing I often do is use leftover casseroles to...

    Purple is mine.  It looks good with my casper-like complexion.  Varying shades as well.

    I hate Allergies!! Who else has them?

    I've had allergies to pollens, mold spores and ragweed my whole life.  I have to take benadryl daily and year round.  In the past 5 years I've also developed occasional hives.  Fun times.

    What's Your Favourite Restaurant?

    Where I live we don't have any fancy restaurants unless Outback and Olive Garden count.  But, they're an hour and a half away.  I have a love for pizza and pasta so, my fave place is Pizza Hut.  I've never even been in an Outback.

    Different macaroni and cheese recipes

    Or if you want something simple... I use a white sauce with a cheese sauce and cream of chicken soup.  I also like to put some chopped onion sauted in butter, parsley, salt and pepper in it.
