When it comes to good old fashioned home cooking, nothing beats a meal made in a sturdy roaster – it’s the easy way to make a hearty one-dish meal that will satisfy even the most robust of appetites. Roasters are made of many different materials including cast iron, enamel clad cast iron, metal, enamel clad base metal, ceramic, glass and aluminum; some feature a non-stick finish while others merely have a highly glazed interior designed to repel baked on foods. Most roasting pans can be used with or without a lid depending on the type of food or meal you are preparing.
With a good quality roasting pan you can do everything from braise meats to roast vegetables, poultry or even fish and with some clever use of aluminum foil you can both line the roasting pan to keep it cleaner or tent it to trap and retain moisture. Most roasting pans are designed for use in the oven and should not be used on a stove top; some pans feature a gravy tray which is simply a recessed area designed to trap fats and juices or other liquids. A savvy cook can make gravy directly in the roasting pan simply by using these delicious juices and adding some flour or a roux.
Roasting pans are very similar to casseroles although they tend to be larger in size and more often made of metal whereas a casserole is most commonly made of ceramic or glass. Both types of pans can generally go from oven to refrigerator but it is a good idea to let the pan and the food reach room temperature before you place it in the oven or refrigerator.
So this weekend I decided to paint my finger nails. Whoa! As I have said from my previous post about my black manicure. I am not a manicure person. The reason I don’t like them on my finger nails, is because it irritates me when they chip which is always in two days. But occasionally, when I can find a very good price on nail polish, I do them just to play with the new nail polish. So while at Walgreens the other week, I found this hazard 952 nail polish from sinful colors.
This color is gorgeous and perfect for spring or summer. It is like coral pink color or peachy orange, and it’s very flattering on all skin tones. For $1.99 it is a steal! I cannot wait to put these on my toes.

Hope the weekend treated you well.
Thankfully, the rain stopped. After what seem like an endless shower all weekend long. So, this weekend has been kind of indoorsy type of weekend for us. A good excuse to check out the newly opened comic shop, and watched the new movie, Iron Man 3. And just when I thought, I have gotten better with my allergies. I am gotten worst! Ugh. I supposed to visit the doctor last week, but told the hubs I am feeling better. Well, I guess this time I have no excused.
I hope you enjoy your weekend. However way you spent it.
Beautiful Sunset, Apalachicola Florida .
Every morning has a new beginning, a new blessing, a new hope and may it shine in you. Today is a perfect day because it’s God’s gift. Have a blessed, hopeful, perfect day to begin with.

Do you remember how our parents preach to us about the importance of eating from the four main groups? As much as we hate to believe it, but eating a balanced diet including the nutrients that our body requires in the correct amount is crucial to staying fit and looking toned and trim. However, remembering all the most current nutritional guidelines, and applying them can be a real challenge. Luckily, I found this healthy eating worksheets online. It is very precise, easy to follow and understand. Most of all, it teaches you a lesson in nutrition.
When my sister moved to her new house last summer, she did not have any difficulty moving all her family’s belongings. She is a very organized person, who makes it a point to do a research first before making any decisions. The family has a lot of prized possessions that needs to be moved with utmost care. Her precious collection of antique china ware, her husband’s collection of DVDs, and the home theater system were the ones she was most concerned about. So she chose a reliable moving company that she knows won’t give her any headache and would make moving much easier and quicker.
It is so important to plan ahead and make your move during the summer. Good moving companies will have many customers during this time, but it would be impossible not to find a good one if you plan earlier. Make a list of everything you own and create a simple record keeping system. Place a number on every box you pack and list the contents of the box. Utilize wardrobe boxes for large yet lightweight items such as blankets, pillows, comforters, and clothes that need to remain hanging. They can also be used for shoe boxes and closet storage boxes.
Space has always been a big problem for my sister because her family has many material possessions. They have several automobiles so she placed the ones which they seldom use in a car storage. You can actually find a lot of moving sites on the internet and these sites can certainly help you with your relocation. They have everything you’ll need, from moving trucks and self storage to portable storage options.
Perhaps it is still too early to think about it. The weather hasn’t even cooperating yet, I know, crazy right! When it is supposed to be beautiful right about this time. Oh well what are we going to do, seems like winter wants to stay longer. But doesn’t the idea of the beach somehow spark a little hope of beautiful days ahead?
Might not be exactly your idea right now, but I am so ready to hit the beach. A few reasons to shop for some beach items like this Crazy for Print Tote bag and this beautiful Beach Bound Floppy Hat.
They are both love! The tote bag is big enough to carry all stuff I want to bring to the beach; towels, sunscreen and such. I also love it’s fun watercolor and Chinle pattern print, and contrasting fuchsia patent vegan leather trim and straps, much beautiful in person. The Beach Bound Floppy Hat that I got for $15 was a bargain! And perfect for blocking the hot sun also, love the color so girly. All in all, I am pretty happy with my purchases. Not mentioning, I paid for all these for $1.99, because of the credit I receive from awesome people signing up my link.
