TGIF

by Cate on April 1, 2006

Another week has come and gone and April is just hours away. I can’t believe how fast March went by! Today was a simply gorgeous day weather-wise and we celebrated the start of Spring-like weather by eating dinner on the porch – love that! The Husband had a craving for steamers and mussels with buttery, white wine broth, and since I hadn’t figured out what to do for dinner yet, that sounded fine by me. The kids had their date night here tonight, giving The Neighbors a chance to get some peace and quiet.

And speaking of The Neighbors, The Neighbor Husband is home, recuperating from his surgery. I thought we could do a little Sandra Lee Send-Up, since he’s Sandra Lee’s biggest fan, but would you believe I only received two other participants for the round-up? Yup, I’d believe it. Not a lot of food bloggers cook by way of Sandra Lee. I have nothing against her and her cooking; just not a big fan of opening up a jar of Cheez Whiz, mixing it with elbow noodles and calling it homemade, you know? Although I’ll be the first to admit, I do crave Cheez Whiz every now and again, it’s just not cooking. However, if she’s able to get people into the kitchen and at least attempting to make dinner, eschewing zipping through the drive-thru lanes, then I’m all for that!

Emily from Biscuits and Blues took a stab at Sandra Lee’s Dijon Chicken and Mushrooms and turned out a winner.

Patti from Adventures in Food and Wine got creative and one-upped Miss Sandra Lee with her take on dessert.

Now because I had a lack of entries, I decided to do a quick search and scare up a few more. Interestingly enough, you can drop in for a monthly I Loathe Sandra Lee group participation event over here from Foodie NYC. Serve Hot gives us a play-by-play of Sandra Lee’s Game Night, or as she lovingly refers to her, the Culinary Antichrist. The Armchair Cook did a fun send-up on Sandra Lee here. Balmy Duck takes on Sandra Lee’s famous tablescapes, complete with cake stand diagrams. 500 words has Sandra Lee on the top of the list of people who need to leave now. Screenshot has been designated the anti-Sandra Lee. Recipe Test Challenge puts Sandra Lee’s infamous frosting truffles to the test. There’s defnitely no shortage of friends and foes of Sandra Lee, that’s for sure!

OK folks, all for tonight. Tune in tomorrow to see what’s on tap for the weekend. Don’t forget it’s Weekend Dog Blogging, as well as Weekend Cat Blogging and lastly, Weekend Herb Blogging See you there! Until then… it’s Easter Bunny time tomorrow. :)

A year ago today… it was a Supper Club recap.

I’m on the “Sandra Lee needs to exit” bandwagon. I’m sure the neighbor has his reasons, but I can’t think of one good one to like her.

I have to make a comment on the new site design. I like it. however, everytime I visit there’s this silly Active-X pop up that comes up and won’t go away. It blocks out the right column. It happens every single time. Is it me? My computer?

I love the weather change, we deserve it, finally!

Rose – I get that Active-X thing sometimes too. I’ve been trying to figure out what’s making it appear … I’m working on it. :) The weather IS gorgeous, isn’t it? Hard to stay inside when it’s like this … absolutely perfect!
