Mary Beth's Memories - High School

Last Reply by Irish1210 1425270215.427 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Fashion Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

I didn’t date much and I wasn’t voted Homecoming Queen, but I was involved in just about everything else while in high school. My senior portrait I loved being a cheerleader for both basketball and football for all four years, jumping up and down, doing the splits, hooting and hollering for our team and wondering if any of the jocks would ever ask me out. They didn't I also loved to sing! I was in the school choir and competed at a lot of music contests. I also sang in two different high school singing groups from my church that toured around the Midwest, ministering at vari... Continue Reading

Mary Beth's Memories Part 1 - Growing up

Last Reply by Judith in NJ 1424882274.203 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Beauty Banter, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

I recently found a couple of huge tubs full of family photos ..... tubs that probably haven't been opened in a decade or so. My plan (during my spare time ;)) is to go through those tubs and put together scrapbooks and photo albums. It also made me think about my family, my life and who we all are. It made me teary eyed and happy all at the same time and I have decided to start blogging about my family. My blog will be called, "Mary Beth's Memories" and here is my first in the series. By the time I came along, the house was already full. But, as usual, they made room for one more. It was... Continue Reading

Happy Valentine's Day from the Roe Family

Last Reply by tjkj 1423850447.66 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs

Valentine’s Day holds a special place in my heart for obvious reasons, but did you know Mark and I actually met on Valentine’s Day? Yes indeed, and we were married just a little over one year later. And I can honestly say, I am just as much in love with him today, if not more, than I was more than three decades ago. Now, I’m not saying it is perfect, no marriage is, and it’s not always that crazy turn-your-stomach-upside-down kind of love after all of these years. However, it is comfortable like your favorite blankie kind of love! Mark is my best friend, my confidant, ... Continue Reading

Mary Beth's Menu - Special Scallops

Last Reply by shwarma 1423450107.57 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

Special Scallops 1 lb bacon 2 lb sea scallops 1/2 cup olive oil 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon pepper 1/2 teaspoon onion powder dash oregano Cut bacon in half. Wrap a half slice of bacon around each scallop. Depending on the size of the scallops and how much bacon you like, you can either leave them like that, or take one more half slice of bacon (like I did) and wrap it around the opposite side of the scallop to create a criss cross. If necessary, secure with wooden toothpicks. Combine olive oil and spices. Pour over the scallops wrapped with bacon and cover with saran wrap.... Continue Reading

Mary Beth's Menu - Easy Chili

Last Reply by sandylea 1423328378.717 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

Chili is a great dish for making ahead, so when dinner time comes, you have more time to spend with your loved ones rather than spending it in the kitchen. It is easy to prepare and there are so many different variations. It's a great dish for the beginner cook, as it doesn't have to be prepared perfectly to taste perfectly delicious. Plus, you can experiment with chili powder and/or hot sauce to make it as mild or as hot as you like.  EZ Chili 1 pound ground beef 1/4 cup chopped onion 1/4 cup chopped celery  1 Tablespoon lemon juice 1/3 cup ketchup 1/4 cup water 1/2 Tables...

Mary Beth's Menu - Cream of Potato Soup

Last Reply by Granny Smith 1423360717.177 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

Did you know today is 'National Soup Swap Day'? It's similar to a Cookie Exchange, but instead of exchanging cookies, everyone exchanges soup. What a fabulous idea during the colder months. The article I read about a soup swap suggested 6 to 8 participants, exchanging 1 quart each of soup. You could even make a night of it bringing an extra quart to share together during a girl's night with dinner. Sounds fun to me!!! However you decide to make and share my "Cream of Potato Soup", I hope you will love it as much as my family and I do. Let me know what you think if you do try it. Cream of Pot... Continue Reading

Mary Beth's Menu - Mom's Cheese Soup

Last Reply by candy kisses 1423689693.3 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

My mom used to make this soup often when my siblings and I were growing up. It always tasted so good, especially since it was so cold in Minnesota. Perhaps it has a more formal name, but we always called it, "Mom's Cheese Soup!" and that's just fine with me! :)  I recently discovered next Sunday is 'National Soup Swap Day'. It's similar to a Cookie Exchange, but instead of exchanging cookies, everyone exchanges soup. What a fabulous idea during the colder months.

Christmas in Texas

Last Reply by moveitgirl 1421246201.773 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Hosts & Personalities, Among Friends, Mom to Mom Blogs

Christmas in Texas…that was a first for Mark and me and all 4 kids!  Since our children are now teens to young adults, we wanted to do something different.  Instead of spending money on ‘things’, I wanted us to spend the money on ‘making memories’!  With Eric, our eldest, getting married in April, this was the last Christmas with just the 6 of us.  Plus, since his fiancé, Alice, is from London, I’m sure the two of them will be spending several Christmas’ in England.  Therefore, off we went to Dallas to do some fun thing...
