First of all, I showed you our recycling situation, and it is what we've had for years! We always recycle a lot, so I just got more and more annoyed with all the space the paper bags took up.

This is what it looked like:

I took Jeanette's advice and bought recycling bins at IKEA! Here's what it looks like now. The whole booth area is free and clear and the dog's food and water moved over there, and the recycling is now by the garbage can in the corner by the fridge:



I love it!

Secondly, Cash Howard got really hyper randomly a few minutes ago so I decided to catch it on camera. I think I need to take him for a walk!

So Lost. It was good. I won't spoil it for those of you who still have to watch it.

A few people came over to watch the premiere last night, so I was prepared with this:




So, what did you think of the season 5 premiere?

Jan. 21st, 2009

The dog is at the groomer getting his hair cut. He's going from big fluffy teddy bear to skinny poodle looking thing I know. So sad but it must be done. We waited too long since his last cut!

Already got some grocery shopping done this morning and some things done around the house. That feels good.

Lost is on tonight! I can't wait!

For those of you that have a lot of DVDs, how do you store them? We have run out of room in what we have, and I'm thinking something that has doors or something would look better.


For those of you who recycle, where do you keep your recycling? What do you use to sort it? Right now we have paper bags on the kitchen floor and i hate how messy it looks. I'd like something that keeps it all together that I can move out of the way when I need to reach the cupboards near where we are keeping the recycling. We don't have any closets in our kitchen and we don't have an attached garage. Any ideas?



I made this Broiled Tilapia Parmesan for dinner tonight and served it with steamed broccoli and rice. I thought it was delicious!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan


Servings 8 (with mine I only did it for 2)


* 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
* 1/4 cup butter, softened
* 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
* 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
* 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
* 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
* 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
* 2 pounds tilapia fillets


1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.


Lost returns
