Goes great with sweet tea! And...this is a salad even your kids might like!! This is one of my favorites because it is a meal all by itself, and all four food groups are represented.
To make your own delicious, put these ingredients into a blender:
Green tea (use green tea powder, or brew 3-4 teabags ahead of time)
Vanilla yogurt (3 tablespoons)
Honey (1 tablespoon)
Quaker oats (1 cup, uncooked)
Lemon juice (1 tablespoon)
My heart is heavy as I type this. I saw in the news tonight that another young black man had been shot by police. The expected words from those on both sides of the incident--Twitter blowing up--the Twitterverse seems to always know about the news even before the news channels do--LOL.
Tonight I have tried to put myself in the shoes of those in the black community. I grew up, for the first eleven years of my life, in a predominately black neighborhood, I went to a school where white kids were the minority. I have seen for myself, in many places, that racism is alive and well. From Rochester, NY, where I was born, and lived until I was eleven, I moved to a small farming community in NY, with my grandmother, father, and my older sister April. April was Mulatto. I saw a lot of what she experienced, she had friends, but she never seemed to truly be accepted by either group.
So I have seen the racism from both sides, from black people, and from white people.
You may remember my review of Linda Joyce's book "Behind the Mask" in a previous post. Well Linda is back with a new book, due to be out soon.
Fleur de Lis Brides: Branna is the first in a series of novels that continue the stories of Branna (Bayou Born), her sister (Bayou Beckons), and Biloxi (Bayou Bound)
Here is the cover reveal of the new book:
I love being a foodie because there are endless recipes to try and this is certainly one for the recipe book because it's also versatile. I was fascinated when I came across this Kale Caesar Pasta Salad recipe. Kale yeah!!!! I am always looking for recipes that are BOTH hardy and healthy and this hardy Kale Caesar Pasta Salad from FoodiCrush.com is on point.
I'm a big salad eater, this Kale Caesar Pasta Salad recipe looks delicious and will transition nicely into my Fall meal menu. It's simple, quick, filling and yet healthy, although I a few additions I would possibly switch it up by occasionally adding smoked mushrooms & oysters, and grilled chicken/arugula or tuna/red onions.
Normally I write on Technology and Innovation but today I am covering a topic about something I absolutely love. Ready? I absolutely love Burgers. National Burger Day was Sunday, September 18th, all over America.

Once you have allowed your loan officer to pull your credit and you have submitted all of your required paperwork, the loan officer will issue you a pre-approval letter. The pre-approval letter will specify the maximum purchase amount for your home, the loan type, the percentage and dollar amount of your down payment as well as the anticipated interest rate. It will also have an expiration date of between 30 and 90 days depending on the lender you are using.
My daughter and I are always sharing hair tips and competing to see who can grow their hair the longest, we started a new competition this week and it's on because I have this secret weapon called African hair treading. She has an advantage because her hair is already longer than mine.
My darling daughter has never had a perm mainly because her dad wouldn't allow it until she turns 18 y.o., but now she has come to love and learned how to deal with her naturally curly hair.
My daughter taught me about natural hair and how to love my hair. It’s funny because she wants thickness and I want length (girls right). Anyhoo…I came across this video, and BTW I love watching Ms. Dephne Madyara’s Youtube channel!!
