I was right

No one came to my blog searching on the words Jennifer Aniston Naked. 

Now I need to come up with a blog topic. I've been uninspired to blog lately.

Because I've been Pinning.

Do you know what Pinningis?  Ever heard of Pinterest?

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard or Bulletin Board.  If you find something on the net you want to share with others, Pinterest is the way to go. 

I like it a lot.  

You should check it out.

Some things I've Pinned...

And of course I pin my own stuff too :D

Settling an argument

My husband say if I use the words  Jennifer Aniston Naked that I'll get more hits on my blog.

I disagree.

I think you come for my really awesome stories & beach writing items!

I'm a Lazy Mom

and one of my lazy tips (that I found on pinterest) is featured on the I'm a Lazy Mom web site!

She spelled my name Susie not Suzie, but it's ok.... this time.... LOL

She has a great site, make sure you check her out.

Before you head over there, and please do head over there, know that a Lazy Mom is not what you think.  It's not that we're lazy, we just empower our kids to do things for themselves.

It's all my dad's fault

I am 41 years old.  I have been registered to vote since I turned 18.

I have NEVER been called for Jury Duty.  

When people would talk about Jury Duty & being called and how to get out of it, I always kept my mouth shut.  If it was a thread on a message board, I stayed out of it.  If people started talking about it IRL, I'd wander away from the conversation.

But about 3 weeks ago my dad asked me flat out "Have you ever been called for Jury Duty?"

I cursed under my breath, told him no. 

I knew then & there, my time was short...

And then just a few days ago, this showed up in my mailbox.

I am not happy.

Thanks Dad...

It would be wrong to go kick my dad in the shins, right?  Elder abuse or something?

Got  a postcard this week telling me I have been excused!!!!!
If I were in a better financial position, I would totally serve.

Dashboard Dining

or, Cooking an egg on the sidewalk.

When it gets as hot as it did back in the end of July at the Jersey Shore, everyone gets cranky and bored.  So I tried my hand at cooking outside.

But not on the grill.

I'm talking eggs on the sidewalk, and cookies on the dashboard of my car. 

Before becoming BBQ Champs, the Diva part of Rhythm 'n Que entertained us with her dashboard cooking in her FPOGE from the 9th ring of hell. 

So I felt up my inner Diva & whipped up some Peanut Butter Cookies. 
Ignore the dirty vanilla bottle,  I bet yours looks like that too!

At 152 degrees in the car, its going to take 2 or 3 hours to cook.

In the oven, err car they go!

While waiting, I figured trying to fry an egg could help pass the time. Now even though my vanilla bottle looks like hell, I'm not a very dirty person and I didn't want egg all over my driveway, so I used a frying pan.

111 degrees,  It will be slow, but it should cook. 

Because we (and by we I mean the husband) have ADD, the pan was moved to his truck. 

In all fairness, the surface of his truck was hotter, see it's starting to cook!

The clouds came out so I decided to bring the egg in. 
It was a little runny, but it was done.  I like my eggs runny anyway.  

Served with bacon, the egg is perfection and cooked using solar power!
OK I didn't actually eat the egg.  Something about food sitting outside for an hour or 2, uncovered, skeeved me out a bit. That's also why the bacon isn't on the same plate, no reason to waste heavenly bacon. 

Ok back to the cookies.

It's been about 3 hours and time to test!

Oh yea, they're good.  DAMN good.

Now they didn't brown, because it wasn't hot enough to carmelize the sugar, so I threw them in the oven just a little bit to make them brown.

So that was my attempt at car cooking.  

Side note, my car smelled so good for about a week! LOL
