I decided it was better to 'pop' out of bed and start my day instead. So what have I accomplished with my morning? Well I terrorized FaceBook to start off with. It seems to have fed my addiction pretty well. I plan on moving on to Klout and Pinterest soon. And hopefully get my reviews back in my planner for July.
In the kitchen I have two crock pots full of beans that I had soaked overnight. I do soak my beans and then pour off the water. Rinse them and start with fresh water. It seems to help get rid of a lot of the gas that the beans release. Today is my sister's birthday and I am fixing up some yummies to carry to her party. There is a dark chocolate cheesecake baking in the oven right now. I already made the creamy dill cucumber salad yesterday to chill. I drained off the fruit from the cucumber ginger lemonade this morning too. It had been sitting overnight to gain all the flavor from the fruit. From the recipe I found online it looks like I left out the ever important Vodka!

But as I sit here with my lovely cup of Kahlua coffee I am trying to think of what I can make special for my sister's get together. I make a decent homemade bisquit. I could do that with sausage and cheese in them. Lil appetizers for easy eating. There is a quick recipe but I prefer to make my bisquit dough from scratch. I don't know yet. But I can smell the cheesecake so I must take off and check it out.
