How To Prepare A Perfect Beef Wellington

"Hey baby, do you like fine cooking? Cause you know what? I got a Swanson's Dinner in the freezer with your name on it."

-Jimmy Fallon

Well, it's been a long week, but I am pleased to say I got a lot accomplished, not the least of which, was giving AOL the boot! I am now a happy high speed customer of Comcast, and my goodness what a difference a few mbps makes! I have been hoping around the Internet with my foot to the floor, enjoying all the things dial-up just can't do. I finally feel like I am in the 21st century. Dial-up is just fine for folks who just want the basics, but I really enjoy a lot of things other then blogging. I like cooking, and I love being able to see cooking videos, without the buffering every 2 seconds. Alan and I had a YouTube date the other night. It's fun! We got our favorite snacks, a couple cans of soda, and spent the evening looking up weird stuff on YouTube! LOL. Hows that for a cheap date guys? LOL. I'm such a cool wife.

I am back to a semi-normal schedule next week, which is nice because I have some new photos to share. I will probably post a new entry each day, but I am still wrestling with some very unorganized closets in need of attention, but who knows? The weather has been just wonderful the last week or so, so I might just ignore the rest of the spring cleaning in favor of hunting the hillsides of Marin County in search of the Mission Blue butterfly. It's been my photographic goal for going on four years now... maybe this year will be lucky for me. For now, enjoy the above cooking video. It's Gordon Ramsay's recipe for Beef Wellington. I am making it for dinner. Delicious with a nice salad of mixed baby lettuces and pear vinegrette with candied pecans.


Note: I have converted my AOL account to the free account option, which allows me to keep all my email addresses, so you can still reach me at the same old place...

Wow! I can't believe you've been on dial up all this time. Once you go high speed, you'll never go back. There's a whole world of stuff out there. I even watch some TV shows online. Check out Hulu for free ones. Congrats on the speed!

P.S. I'd be prepared to exit AOL altogether. I really don't see them continuing in any kind of means much longer.

We couldn't live without our high speed! Mommy loves it. We have become addicted to watching shows on the internet that we can't DVR (because of conflicts). It is great!

I'm glad little Hendrix & Dylan are OK after their snip snip. They won't even miss 'em! ha ha ha

Enjoy a more normal week. It is nice to get back to routine. purrrs
