Recipes, Hurricanes and Movies

First of all this morning I'd like to thank everyone who weighed in on my makeup dilemmas. All the advice was much appreciated and I'm going to be looking into buying some of the products you mentioned soon. What would I do without you ladies?

Ok, as far as an update on the recipe blog. I've had several people volunteer to help in one way or another, so I really appreciate you ladies doing that! As soon as we get a name chosen I'll be making the account and then Emily has volunteered to do a template for us, so that will help out a lot. I'll also be setting up an email account so that if you don't want to put the recipes in the blog yourself, you can email them to us and we'll put them in for you. I'm still trying to decide the best way to catergorize the recipes. I wasn't sure whether to do it traditionally as in appetizer, main course, dessert, etc. Or do it by the author's blogger name. What do you ladies think?

Other than that I just need a few more suggestions for names and then I'll be putting up a poll for that. I think it's safe to say we should have this blog up and running in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully....

In other news, everyone it seems in Louisiana is watching Gustav and just where it plans on going. The news around here is filled with predictions of where it will track to and New Orleans news is abuzz with evacuation plans. Sean told me last night there is word that if it hits somewhere near here and is bad enough that his unit will be sent out. For some reason during Rita and Katrina units from Ft. Polk weren't sent. Odd is it not? They were 5 hours away from New Orleans, yet the 82nd was sent in. I'll never understand our government and how it works. However, I'm actually glad that we decided not to go on that Elvis cruise that I tried to convince Sean to go on. Looks like now with this hurricane it would have been cancelled anyway.

Anyway, not much else on the agenda today. Sean has CQ duty tonight from 5:30 until 6:30 tomorrow morning, so it will just be another quiet night for Boomer and I. I am going to the gym tonight since I've neglected to go the past few evenings. I've been bad about going lately, I'm not sure what my problem is. I'm never going to lose those 10 more lbs by the end of October if I don't get with the program ASAP! I say that and then I go and eat a mini-country ice cream cone for a mid-morning snack. Guess I'm hopeless!

Anyone have any good suggestions for movies they've seen lately? It doesn't have to be a new release, but I'd like some more movies to add to my Netflix list. I have a bout 20 some on there right now, but I'd like some more good suggestions. I prefer comedies and I'm not really a fan of horror, if that helps any!

I would make the sections by Appetizer, main course, side dish, etc.

Then you could even cross reference the by main ingredient.

It would take 2 or 3 key words per recipe, but that it's not like keywords are difficult.

Why not categorize as both? You can do it as keywords. So, if I put an appetizer up, I'd put two keywords: appetizer; DAR. Then you can search either of the two and find the recipe.

As for makeup...I'm a huge fan of BareMineral. I have horrific undereye circles as well, and their foundation covers it up in 2 seconds flat.

I like DAR's suggestion of tagging it as both.

That was a good suggestion DAR, I'll implement that!

Good Idea! I have a recipe sharing day on Mondays! You should check it out! Movies lately Dark Knight but it's not on DVD yet.

I think you should also tag main ingredients like "feta", "Chicken", "Beef", "cheese". You get the point. Sometimes I am looking for a specific ingredient to use. I think I'll be the person to occassionally email recipes. I'm glad to see that units are already being deployed to NOLA, and that there should be a decision by Friday. Last night it said that Gustav lost steam, then I wake up and its barely not categorized as a hurricane. I really really fear for NOLA. I hope it goes somewhere else. I don't think they're ready. And like you, I haven't spent much time down there. Mark and I plan to mini vacay down there when he comes home next year.

Oh yeah, it looks like I'll be coming to Polk sometime soon. The person watching the house with our stuff and friends things says her husband forbade her to go in alone. And these guys stupidly turned off all electricity in the house for the deployment. Five men's things, in a house thats falling apart, thru a southern summer? I picture mold at least. I just wish she'd at least go see if anyone has broken in!! I'll let you know if I come sometime soon.

I like Saras idea of tagging by some of the ingredients. Sometimes I'll have a lot of something used in another recipe and no idea what to do with it. I think your recipe blog is a GREAT idea... I'm always on the look out for new stuff... and so is poor flyboy.
