Do you watch the Food Network? I like to have it on or Home & Garden, it's noise while I stamp (if I don't have music on), and I like hearing the ideas. I have watched a couple episodes of the Cupcake Wars and I don't know how they possibly crank out 1,000 cupcakes in like 2 hours. The other day the girl that won was from Gilbert, Arizona. I am glad she won the guy she was up against seemed too cocky and he was a real kiss a$$, the whole time he was like making the Duff guy's (he was the one they were making the cupcakes for – he has the Ace of Cakes show) emblem on everything, he put his face on stuff, it was just too much, plus his final display really sucked.
Today Jeff made smoked BBQ ribs, so yummy, I also made my little sister Courtney's potato salad, and those danged cinnamon rolls. I have a screaming head ache so I wonder if I had to much sugar today. It's not a migraine just a head ache.
3 lbs. medium sized small red skin potatoes with skin left on
1 cup sour cream
2/3 cups mayonnaise
1 tbsp. chopped fresh dill or 1 tsp. dried dill
2 tsp. chopped fresh parsley plus extra for garnish
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
In large saucepan, cover potatoes with cold water. I cut the potatoes up into bite size pieces with the skin left on (cause that is what Court does). Bring to boiling over high heat, cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain. Meanwhile in a large bowl stir together sour cream, mayo, dill, parsley, salt and pepper. While the potatoes are still warm put them in with the sour cream mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate over night. Court serves hers warm and so did I, cause I could not wait to try it out. You can garnish with additional parsley if desired. So easy and yummy!
I need to make up a few cards using the Hostess set Birthday Bakery, so I got looking around the internet and found some cute ones to case (copy and share everything). The first one I did was from Kathleen Hopperstad. All I did was change the punch border and the ribbon. Thanks for the cute card to case Kathleen!

So today when I let Toby out (and I have to go with him or he stands at the door even if he has to potty and won't go till I come out…crazy nut!) but I saw this cute little guy, so I ran back into the house for my Bad Girl camera to try out the zoom and stuff.
I got a little closer and then he moved to the rock.
Well I am gonna call it a night, I have to be over to MAMMa's bright and early so we can finish everything up.
Have a great Tuesday (even though all day Monday I thought it was Sunday). Thanks for stopping in!
