Would really love to eat crawfish after the holy week.
Contribution by Kennith Griffin:
When my sister was in college, she worked part time for a catering company and restaurant. During the week she worked as a pastry chef and cook for the restaurant. On the weekends, she got to help cater all of these fancy events. She made pretty good money for it only being a part time job. She was an education major, but she recently decided that she wanted to open her own catering company. My grandparents used to own a restaurant, and although the restaurant is not open anymore, they still own the space. They told her she could use the space to get started with her company. She went to t1.xo to set up internet for the company, and set up all of the other utilities for the restaurant too. Once she had all of that handled, she was able to focus on the more fun stuff, like the menu. She asked me to come in once a week and be a taste tester. I happily agreed. I know that she is a pretty good cook, and I love to try new foods. She has a pretty good set of recipes to put on the menu and hopefully she will be opening her company very soon.

When we were in Mississippi, when hubby and I feels like going to New Orleans, we hit the road right then. We just go to Cafe Du Monde and eat it. Now? Got no choice but, just drool LOL.
My husband loves sending chocolates by post even before we were married. Chocolates are sweet, so did my husband. Anyway, a chocolate can be very beneficial to human health. It uses a lot of cocoa which contains plenty of Flavonoids and citrin which helps maintain the body’s blood pressure.
Are you a big fan of the sweet stuff? There's something to be joyful about loving the chocolates but, remember, too much of everything can harm our body. It is okay to treat ourselves with our chocolate cravings in regular basis but, make sure it is not too much. Eating chocolates improve blood flow, it decrease the risk of stroke and lower the blood pressure.
It also aids in balancing blood sugar levels especially if you eat dark chocolates. The risk of getting diabetes is minimized because the food enhances the body’s metabolism of blood sugar. Chocolates help lessen a person’s chances of getting heart attacks since it keeps the LDL cholesterol low and the HDL cholesterol high. For more information, click on the links here.
This is a medium size pizza. Just enough for both of us.
So far, I like Brooklyn Pizza and New York pizza. What is your favorite? Let me know so I can go there and taste it. Thanks for stopping by.
In the master bedroom they renovated the bathroom and it has a porcelain vanity top, a clean and contemporary style which I love. The bathroom has a standing shower, has a beautiful lighting fixture, and a good size for us.
The kitchen needs some updating of course and all appliances need to go. Yesterday, we priced some of the appliances that we like and though they are a bit expensive, we can't do anything but, purchase our needs. Anyway, before we went to the appliances section, we went to the grocery. My sister asked me to price and compare biochem whey protein and ultra protein plus. If you are looking for these items, check out the link here. Their prices are affordable.
Well, I am excited to do some work in the house and hubby already bought a refurbished cordless drill and some power tools. We can only do minor projects in the house. If we need a major project, that's the time we will hire a professional contractor.

We are actually excited because the celebrant has grown up as a well-mannered, intelligent and beautiful lady and will be home for the spring break too. Just in time for her birthday and since she is studying up north, she always love to come home. She has a boyfriend who is popular in their school in both sports and academic. She will bring him and few of her friends will also come for her birthday. I heard they are all excited to come and would really love to spend time on the beach also.
My friend told me that they like the guy for their daughter. The celebrant is excited for her birthday celebration. Aside from her boyfriend, she also invited her close friends. Actually, her close friends are the ones who recommended the Website that has a lot of design selections for a birthday invitation.
As of now, I am ready to send the RSVP back to them and will be heading to the mall to shop for a birthday gift. It is really nice to send a formal invitation to the expected guest because it will serve as a reminder. Sending a formal invitation will definitely yield to having more gifts for the celebrant. When there is an invitation, there is no way that guest can miss coming to a celebration without a gift right?
Every time you have an important celebration, I bet you can tell the difference when you send invitations and when you don't. When you just invite someone randomly, some of them come with no gift at all. But, when you send an invitation, you usually got more gifts. Having said so; sending invitation is important but, the presence of those you love when they arrive on the party even without gift is most important of all.

Fast food is a part of American culture. Who doesn’t have a nostalgic memory about a McDonald’s sundae or Wendy’s frosty? However, these treats are more than just a pastime as they are also a delicious, fast and affordable way to indulge your sweet tooth. Fast food restaurants offer such an impressive selection of desserts that even food lovers interested in pastry school will approve of these desserts.
- Wendy’s Small Frosty – Feel free to dip your fries into your Frosty as much as you want, because this dessert only has 160 calories and 5 grams of fat. Don’t let its simplicity fool you, it’s delicious.
- Taco Bell Cinnamon Twists – Light puffs of corn doused in sugar and cinnamon, making this dessert delectable and kind on your waist.
- KFC Lil’ Bucket Strawberry Shortcake Parfait Cup – Big in flavor and light in calories.
- McDonald’s Caramel Apple Parfait – Only has 160 calories but you wouldn’t know it as you dip your spoon into the caramel.

- KFC Lemon Meringue Pie – Everyone loves pie. With this dessert you can have your pie and eat it, too.
- Pizza Hut Cherry Dessert Pizza – A great way to enjoy a classic treat and watch your weight.
Floats, Ice Cream and Shakes – Oh, My!
The most popular deserts for fast food resturants seem to be ice cream based. And while your nutritionist certainly wouldn't want you to try them out; we highly recommend these frosty treats. Both A&W and Jack in the Box offer root beer floats to take you back to a simpler time. McDonald’s and A&W have a wide variety of sundaes including strawberry and caramel that are sure to satisfy any craving. Roy Rogers’ Apple Cheese Crisp Sundae and Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae are not your average sundaes. Burger King also has special sundaes such as its Oreo Sundae, Oreo Brownie Sundae, and Peach and Granola Sundae. For those who want ice cream and a little something extra, McDonald’s McFlurry, A&W’s Polar Swirl and Dairy Queen’s Blizzard offers thick ice cream mixed with different candies and other goodies.
Many fast food chains offer milkshakes; however, McDonald’s carries a seasonal shamrock shake that is green and minty, perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Burger King also sells a handspun strawberry shake. At Jack in the Box, customers can enjoy the salty sweet taste of a bacon shake. Carl's Jr. sells chocolate, vanilla and Oreo malts for those who want a cool yet sweet treat.
Slices of Heaven
McDonald’s Baked Apple Pie, served warm and fluffy, is a classic dessert that will keep you coming back for more. Burger King also has a Dutch Apple Pie that looks and tastes like your grandma’s. Chick Fil-A has lemon pie that will cool you down on a hot day and satisfy your sweet craving. Jamocha Cream Pie at Arby's is perfect for coffee lovers. As for choc-aholics, Burger King has a Hershey Sundae Pie, with layers of delicious chocolate. Carl’s Jr. and Jack in the Box also have a simple chocolate cake.
Who can say no to cheesecake? Chick Fil-A and Carl’s Jr. both have cheesecake. However at Del Taco, you can have Caramel Cheesecake bites for small pops of big flavor. Cinnamon and sugar go hand and hand. Churros are conveyor belts of cinnamon sugar goodness available at Jack in the Box and at Del Taco. McDonald’s Caramel Melts also combine the powers of cinnamon and sugar in their cinnamon rolls.

Our friend was actually searching for a dedicated server. As expected, a satisfied customer need no convincing, our friends started working on his Webzilla the next day. I called him the other day and so far, he was impressed with the high-quality Dell servers. He likes the individual approach and the flexible pricing. Of course, these features only depend upon the needs of the customers.
This company can solve any questions with traffic especially on the connection to multiple major providers. It has great capacity say, 1Gbps that is why, they are trusted by major internet businesses. The quality of service is phenomenal. Our friend was thankful that we hang out lastweek and was introduced about Webzilla.
