Yay! Yay for your Blogher experience, for cooking with Jack Daniels even if you don't drink (and I understand WHY that is), and for learning to put pics in the post!   The recipe looks amazing, and was fun to read. White wine AND Jack Daniels!?...

Lori, I had never baked mushrooms before.  They were wonderful to use in the sauce because the baked mushroom/chocolate color held up in the white cream sauce.  It was a simple recipe, and delish!  Lots of dishes to clean up afterwards...

That's the way it works in our house, Karen, but in reverse. Bob cooks, and I clean up (but in our house, we call it "siding up" )

He worked all day though Lori, I felt guilty.  But then again, I was delirious after trying to get so much accomplished with an earache, sore throat and headache.  Since I am retired, I always feel it's my job to take care of him.  But...

Again, that's how it works in our house: my husband is "semi-retired", meaning that he works from home, but not anywhere near fulltime. So, he does the cooking, and I (work fulltime away from home) clean up afterwards. If we did it the other way...

Thanks Rosemary, it's taking me a while to put them together because we keep leaving to go other places!  I think I'm just about caught up on my thank you's.  I've got one more to do for Poise.  They put on an awesome comedy show!

Sounds like fun, Karen! Good for you, going to the Big City by yourself--I know how you feel: when I went, I took Bob with me.   Love the purse--especially the color!

Don't be so literal, Karen! "middle-aged" doesn't have to mean squarely in the middle of your lifespan. It's a range of years which cover the years from youth(ish) to old age. We are DEFinitely not old!!   A number of years ago I was visiting in...

I AM on the same side of 50! But I'm still in denial that I have even REACHED  middle age.   Again, you don't have to make it to 110. We're talking a span of years, not a single year.

Yep. I'm afraid you're middle-aged.... and in the upper echelons of middle-aged-ness too.   I agree, Baby Boomers makes me generally think of folks ten ye

Hmmm....I must have taken a left turn when I was supposed to take a right. I mean, I run into the occasional troll, but I've not yet seen a wizard or a sexy ranger from the north. And even though I frequently request an elf to do stuff, they NEVER...

Ohhhhhh. That was Middle Earth I was thinking of.... damnit.   And yay! I'll be middle aged in six months! I love entering new eras, I started telling folks I was forty about three months ago, because I figured I'd existed for nine months...

I figure I could have been rotting in the ground for nearly seven years now if the ghost of a chance hadn't brought my Love my way to help me save myself. I'm quite happy to be both cuckoo and disgustingly happy for every smile life brings my way,...

Well, it's hard to fault you for that. You  just keep that happy dance about getting older away from me.

Last year at BlogHer11 in San Diego, there was a session called "Boomer Bloggers" and seriously, it called my name. I was born in 1956, so I am smack dab in the middle of the Baby Boomer generation. For those of you who don't know, or haven't heard...

A few days ago, it dawned on me that I am no longer middle aged.  Unless I live to 110.  Which I would gladly accept if not for the early degenerative arthritis I've had since I was 30 something.  Seriously though, I'm not middle aged?...
