This is a group where we can sit back and enjoy chatting with each other rather than on the recipes. Hopefully in return this will free up some of the recipe comment sections of unwanted chatter.

Thanks and have fun!!!

Optimism comes from the Latin word optimus, meaning "best," which describes how an optimistic person is always looking for the best in any situation and expecting good things to happen. Optimism is the tendency to believe, expect or hope that things will turn out well. Even if something bad happens, like the loss of a job, an optimist sees the silver lining. For me, getting laid off was the catalyst that allowed me to start my own business. As I packed up my office, my mind was already whirling with the possibilities ahead. Without that push, I may never have made the leap to self-employment. Losing my job was a good thing after all.

Happiness through Positive Self-Talk
Being an optimist or a pessimist boils down to the way you talk to yourself. Optimists believe that their own actions result in positive things happening, that they are responsible for their own happiness, and that they can expect more good things to happen in the future. Optimists don’t blame themselves when bad things happen. They view bad events as results of something outside of themselves. I didn't blame myself for losing my job, but saw it as a business decision that had nothing to do with me personally.

I had a large bowl of pasta fagiolo in the fridge. My husband, who works nights,
came home and had some but he forgot to put it back in the fridge.
He left the bowl on the kitchen counter. I didn't notice it until the next morning.
Would it still be okay to eat?
Thank you.

A little boy letter to God

By manhal rashdan

A little boy wanted $100.00 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened. Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.00. When the postal authorities received the letter to God, USA, they decided to send it to the President. The president was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a $5.00 bill. The president thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy. The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 bill and sat down to write a thank-you note to God, which read:

Dear God: Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that for some reason you sent it through Washington, DC, and those crooks deducted $95.00 in taxes.

Here is a quick easy dessert to make for Valentines this weekend.

I love these little gems of a dessert, and this year since they have the Red Velvet Oreos in the stores now, I plan to use them to make this mini Cheese cake idea, or you might want to make one regular size cheesecake. Either way they will both be good. Gingerbread Amaretto Mini Cheesecakes and it is a simple quick and easy dessert. But this year I will use the red velvet Oreo cookies.
