Re: Need ideas of what to wear when the dress code is "dressy casual"??

Re: Any Opinions on new "Coca Cola Life" Compared to "Classic Coca Cola"?

We like Coke Zero, although I couldn't explain why - it just tastes better than Diet Coke to me. Also like Cherry Coke Zero. I haven't tried Coke Life, but probably won't; it's somewhat reduced in calories but not enough for DH, who is diabetic. And I prefer 0 calorie drinks. Continue Reading

I don't own any. I guess it doesn't appeal to me because I don't like styles that look busy. Continue Reading

Re: What do you fix for Thanksgiving when there are only two of you?

Cornish hens are perfect for two, and they are very tasty. I like to serve them with wild rice (you can use Uncle Ben's mix to make it easy). But Parmesan Potatoes or scalloped potatoes would be great. A green vegetable (sautéed Brussels sprouts, fresh green beans (with almonds or cashews), or peas (with butter and thyme or little onions). Rolls I love to bake pies, but honestly, there are very good ones at the groceries and bakeries! Continue Reading
