A Little Bit of Miscellanous...

I try to write my posts in the evening for posting the next morning.  Sometimes that routine works for me, sometimes it doesn't.  Over the next month, it is probably going to fall more into the "it doesn't" category because we are working on moving.  Christie Huff, the house will be a wreck for your visit at the end of this month.  I'm sorry.  I know you will be disappointed that there isn't a cheese tray and other accoutrements waiting at the door for your arrival, so I will owe you one on the next visit!  I hope you enjoy the takeout pizza or Chinese leftovers we will be eating for breakfast and lunch! ;-)

And, I  owe you readers an apology for the posts over the next month or so.  I don't know how timely they will be nor can I promise a lot of substance.  There will probably be some fluff and some re-posting of earlier blogs, which is okay, because those poor posts need some love.

Today, I'm going to share a link to an article that I posted earlier in the year.  It's a great recipe and I know you will enjoy it.  I shared it on the blog At The Women's Room earlier this week.  By the way, I've graciously been asked to be a contributor to that blog, so I hope you will pop over and read it sometimes.  I am privileged to be joining 6 other fantastic bloggers in this endeavor!  They have wonderful blogs and have written some really great articles At The Women's Room.  Brenda, at Cozy Little House, put the blog together and she has done a wonderful job!

While my thoughts are scattered all over the place, please bear with me, but please don't go away!  I love your comments and enjoy being able to chat with you via email!

So after all of that, I'm finally sharing what I wanted to share..the recipe for Coffee-Cured Filet Mignon.


I know you are thinking that it is a fancy recipe since it includes Filet Mignon, but folks, Filet Mignon is pretty darn reasonable.  You can get a 2-pack at Walmart for around $8.00.  This recipe was super easy and you just throw the steaks on the grill.  You can click here for the original post and a printable copy of the recipe.


Give it a try...you will love it!

  1. I printed it out as I love filet mignon. Don't drink coffee but love coffee rubbed burgers, coffee ice cream, etc.

    Hey, you know we're going to be right here with Chasing Quaintness through the move and settling in, don't you? Do what you can when you can. It's all okay.

    1. Thanks so much Kris! Moving is such a pain and seems to take up all of your free time! We close at the end of the month and hope to have everything ready. The hubster has already written a post “men’s moving tips” that I have to share this week. He says that all women need to know these things…LOL

  9. Real life is messy and it's unpredictable and it's scattered, it's understandable that your blog would reflect that. I can't wait to see what pops up! Good luck with the house!

  10. Good luck with all it takes to move and unpack. We'll just wait until you feel like chatting. Remember to take breaks (and drink lots of water, although I would probably be drinking wine, but then I wouldn't remember where I put anything). Seriously just enjoy your new journey and we will love hearing about it later.

    1. Thank you so much Jann! We thought we had this down to an art, or a science, but it seems we are fumbling around like we've never done it before. Maybe some wine would definitely help the situation here! :-)

    1. Awww, thank you so much Tessa! We are excited and weary all at the same time. We've decided to pace ourselves and come up with a packing schedule. We will see how that turns out...LOL. Hugs back to you!!

  12. How dare you go off and deal with real life! Listen lady, I expect a post every single day, no matter what's going on. And if I visit you, there had better be appetizers and that steak on my plate for dinner!

    LOL Just kidding.... can you imagine if somebody really wrote that? You take care of you and don't worry, we'll all be here :)

    (((hugs)))

    1. LMAO....you are hilarious!!! You know what, I'm sure there is someone out there who would write that...LOL I am proud of myself though..we are having a real meal tonight...it was pizza last night! ;-) Hugs!!

  13. Since I am having leftover spaghetti I am absolutely NOT going to look at those gorgeous steaks, lol!!! but next im in walmart if they have 'em, I will come back here :)

    Don't worry about moving and blogging!! Just say you are on a break. Take lots of pictures for posts later or only do a post every two weeks or something. But certainly don't worry about the blog...the move is what's important / no spazzing allowed :)

    1. I would personally take the spaghetti because I don’t eat steak…LOL If/When you fix these, please let me know what you think. :-) Spazzing??!! Honey, I’ve been spazzing for the past week! LOL…I like that word!! Thanks so much!! :-)

  14. Just read your blog. I, too, am a cookbookaholic!! I probably have around 250 of them. I may not ever use a recipe in most of them but I still have them because I can't get rid of them. They all have a reason for me owning them.

  16. Hi Benita! :)
    Your move and your family are more important than Blogland! And the readers who love reading your posts (like me) will stick around for your return! :)
    Good luck with your move, it's stressful (I know!) and just enjoy every moment and memory of moving into your new home!
    Hugs, Kimberley
