  1. Halloween
    :pumpkin: We hit our average of 15 kids tonight but this year the trick or treaters were all over 12 yrs old. (Hard to give away the McDonald's coupons I had purchased) I seemed to have over bought on the candy and will need to mail the coupons to friends with children under 12 yrs old. Lucky...

    With Hallowe'en only a couple weeks away, a lot of the networks are airing Hallowe'en and horror movies. What are some of your favourites? Do you look forward to seeing them each year or are you waiting to catch ones you've never seen before? One of my faves for Hallowe'en (not horror) is Its...

    ...and how has the quote impacted your life in some way? My favourite quote that I'm trying to grasp these days is "Less is more". I've had such a hard time over the years purging my stuff. But I know all it is is "stuff". I've also had a hard time getting rid of my daughter's baby toys and...

    Freshly made kettle chips, buffalo fries, corn dogs, cotton candy, ice slushes, deep fried chocolate bars, candy apples, waffle ice cream sandwhiches etc etc etc. What is your favourite junky food item that you can only get at a fair/carnival/festival? How often do you look for it / actually...
  5. Kitchen Basics
    As we are starting to get overrun with cucumbers, I'm hoping to try my hand at making pickles this summer. I've spent time surfing and I find a lot of recipes seem to need quite a few ingredients which kind of scares me. Anyone have a simple/easy tried and true recipe? (Can be dill or sweet...

    My birthday is coming up and my husband has asked me what I wanted. I'm a bit stumped for ideas!:rollsmile: I thought it would be a good occasion to invest in something useful but nice. What were your favourite useful presents? and what is on your wishlist?

    ...What are they? It's hard to pick, but my top five would probably be: Goodfellas The Shawshank Redemption The Matrix Terminator II Aliens (I like my big blockbuster sci-fi stuff) So just for fun, tell us yours. :D
  10. Meal planning
    My SO and I are currently waiting for word on when he will be sent to another city for a few months via his job. The only upside to his leaving is that I will finally be able to stock up on cheese in the fridge :laugh:. Even the smell horrifies him, so it's generally banned unless vacuum sealed...
  11. Meal planning
    Now that 2011 is here and lots of us are dedicating this year to getting healthier and slimmer, I was wondering what your one favourite healthy breakfast and one favourite healthy lunch meal would be? I'm always on the lookout for new, healthy, quick and affordable meal time ideas, so thought...

    As a spin off of another thread - What are some of your favourite board games from your past or present (if you currently play them). What did you remember most about the games? Aspect of the games itself or the memories associated with it?
  13. Home Decorating
    For the open areas of your home - livingroom, entry, hallway, etc. Not the rooms that are separated (like bed and bath), but those that all flow into each other. I've always gone with taupe walls and white trim, but am considering branching out a bit. I'd like a more casual feel in the next...
  14. Home Environment
    No house is perfect so we all have to make sacrifices when we choose one. For example, our big dilemma is location - we would like an easy commute, space, and a reasonable price - unfortunately that is not possible, so we need to decide which two are most important. What options did you need...

    I was wondering if anyone had a favourite blog/website they followed for veganism. Could you list it for me?

    Odd question but I heard this on a radio talk show this am....I'm curious to see what kind of responses we get in this thread. :) For me it's kind of a toss up between two: My library card. Allows me access to info for free be it the use of their computers/internet or media which I can borrow...

    I have fifteen to which I subscribe, including Starship Sofa's Aural Delights and Escape Pod (sci fi); a number of the "Old Time Radio" podcasts; a few foreign language podcasts; and a couple of literary/educational podcasts. I love the Old Time Radio shows, but my favourite podcast right now...
  19. Question and Answer
    What is your absolutely most favourite HOMEMADE meal (whether you still eat it or not)? Is it something you make, or is it something that someone else makes (or has made) for you? If the latter, do you have the recipe? Does nostalgia play any part in your decision? (In other words, is your...
