Buffalo Turkey Burgers.

A couple of weeks ago, while surfing Pinterest, I came across a recipe for Buffalo Turkey Burgers. I made them for Jordan (my husband), his friend, and his dad. They were very good. Of course there were somethings that I had to change because of the people I made them for, but they enjoyed it.
I highly suggest you go check the webpage for this recipe out as well the whole site. They're really great.

Happy Eating!

Tour de Fleece

So tomorrow is the start of Tour de Fleece. This is my first time joining Tour de Fleece and I joined Team Sasquatch, since I listen to a ton of knitting podcasts and love them all. But I'm entering it as a "hand cyclist" because currently I do not spin. My goal is to finish my Strong Heart Mittens, a washcloth, and a hat. With as much as I knit this should be easy but this coming Monday I start my new (temporary until I know if they'll keep me) job. So I don't want to push myself too much. It might be a while until I actually will spin for Tour de Fleece but I'm more then happy to be a hand cyclist. So join me and all the podcasters and spinners on Team Sasquatch tomorrow, and enjoy Tour de fleece.

Book Review: The Outsiders by S.E.Hinton

The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton is about Ponyboy, a 14 year old who is part of a group called the "greasers". This group includes his two brothers, Sodapop and Darrel (Darry), along with four other boys. Ponyboy and one of the group, Johnny end up leaving the town and hiding out in a empty church because Johnny killed a boy who's part of a rival group called the "Socs" short for "Socials". Both boys were beaten up by the boy and his friends one night after Ponyboy and Johnny walked the Socs girlfriends home (the Socs were drinking). While Ponyboy had his head shoved in a park foundation and nearly drowned, Johnny saves him by stabbed the Soc and killing him. The rest of the book seems like a lot of days go by because of all what happens, but it was only a few days. You'll love how the author gives some many details about the characters and you will get attached to them.
This is a book that I had to read in the 7th grade and I have read tons of times ever since.

Book Review: The Book in the Attic by Melissa Gunther

The Book in the Attic by Melissa Gunther, is the first book in a series about Celia. A girl who is living with her aunt after her parents disappeared from their home, never to be heard from again. After enduring all the boring things that her aunt puts her through, she's told to clean the attic. When she does, she find this really old looking book. After she's done cleaning she takes it back to her room and sets it on her desk. After a few hours of dealing with her grandmother, she's getting ready for bed when she sees that its glowing. She's opens it and out pops a little floating man, who tells her about a boarding school. (Her aunt is trying to send her off to a boarding school after her birthday.) After being told that this school is for people who have "special gifts" and is shown pictures of the school she really wants to go. And after about a month, she's at the school where everyone seems to know her name and more about her then she does. She meets new friends and some enemies, almost gets kicked out of school for something she didn't do. But through out the school year she learns new things about herself, her family, and what kind of gifts she has. After reading this book for a few times I still love it. If you love the Harry Potter series, then you will love this. It's one of those books where you just want to find out what's going to happen next.
