Bet You'll Never Guess....

what we saw in a parking lot today. We took the girls to this free festival today. They had inflatables (any parent with kids ages 2-.... KNOWS you MUST go to a festival with free inflatables) =). We were walking around and looking at all the old cars when we saw something just ahead of us on the parking lot. It was a 9 foot python. Yep. A nine foot snake. Slithering around. Luckily it did have its owners with it =) and it appeared to have been recently fed (judging by the tell tale bulge in its tummy). But after our encounter on June 29th, we encouraged the girls to stay way back =).
I also had to share a cool experience tonight. Between the Army messing up our pay and LOTS of trips to and from doctors... we have been really stretched financially. Our pantry was quite low on things that would actually make a real meal. I called my super-de-dooper friend for a recipe and she shared a WONDERFUL website with me supercook. It is SUCH a cool resource. The only veggies I had was some green onions and potatoes. At this website you put in what ingredients you have and they give you recipes that use them. I typed in potatoes, green onions and milk and it gave me a recipe for Green Onion Potatoe soup that was WONDERFUL! It was easy to make and very filling. Just thought I would share! I plan on using this website many more times.

Thanks for the web site... I've been in similar predicaments.

I love, love, LOVE Super Cook!! I mentioned it on my own blog recently! It saves many a meal at the end of the pay period when pickings are slim! :)
