Tempt My Tummy Tuesday…a moving post

by Lisa on August 16, 2010

Tempt my Tummy TuesdayOh I am being silly.  Did you think this was a post about something sappy and emotional?  Hee hee. No, it is not that at all.  I have two BIG moves to tell you about.   My family is moving again.  Yep! If you remember, we bought a new house over a month ago.  We have been putting the “finishing touches” on the house and now it is moving day!!  Thursday is the day.  Well, that is the day the moving truck and big men with strong, super large muscles, arrive at the house to move us.  Currently, my husband and I are trying to move as much as possible.  You see, we are paying by the hour.  So, the less to move .. the better!

I have the majority of my kitchen and pantry already moved, which leads to a big problem. ……. There is nothing appetizing nor tempting coming out of my kitchen this week; unless you consider two day old, leftover pizza, still sitting in the delivery box, appetizing.   So, ladies ( and a few gents) I am leaving this one in your hands.  Link up some yummy, end of summer dishes for us less inspired cooks.  I know summer is winding down for many of you, as school has even begun in many states.  What’s cookin’ at your house?  As for this family, I foresee Chinese take-out, pizza, sandwiches, and hot dogs in our very near future.  🙂

Now, about something very exciting!    I will be partnering with At The Well blog.  It is a wonderful Christian woman’s blog, offering hope and encouragement.  The goal at At the Well is to encourage you in your role as a Titus 2 woman.  I have been asked to join the team as a contributing writer.  On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, you will find the Tempt My Tummy Tuesday blog carnival hosted, by me, at the At the Well website, for the “Reflections on the Home series.   TMTT will continue to work just the same, great recipes linked and shared by us all.  The only thing that will change, one a month, will be the location.  I will post a link and reminder on those weeks, for you to easily click over and link up.

I hope you are as excited as I about this change.  If you are not familiar with At the Well, I pray that this once a month move will expose you to a place for all women to meet and encourage one another.  Our first At the Well -TMTT will be Tuesday, September 14th.  I will post reminders and a link on that day.

Okay, I must get off the computer now! I have boxes that must be filled!

I’m excited to give tempt my tummy Tuesday a try! We haven’t participated in any blog hop events yet so we can’t wait!


Michelle August 16, 2010 at 7:20 pm

Good luck with the move! It has to be so nice and exciting to have your “final” place ready to move in. Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly! And ummm yeah, good luck cooking for now 😉 I remember those days!


Lori Gasca August 16, 2010 at 7:39 pm

Hey Lisa – Glad you are getting settled and hope you’ll be there for a while. Wish I was closer to help you move! I just made a great strogan…(sp?) -help me w/the spelling. Brown ground turkey and onion in a skillet. When it’s done dice up some cream cheese (reduced fat is good) and stir it around to melt it. I then add about 1/2 cup of sour cream (again, light is fine) and milk for consistency. S&P to taste and serve over whole wheat egg noodles! YUMMY and so quick! This is my first post, friend. Hope I did it correctly! -Lori!


Lisa August 16, 2010 at 8:32 pm

Woo hoo! Love to see my dear friend on my blog! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Lori. Love ya, sistah!


Lori Gasca August 16, 2010 at 9:10 pm

Ok, Lisa, I guess it worked. Now, is there a way for your posts to go to my email…I didn’t know you had replied until I logged on again…I’m a blog idiot, I know!


Lisa August 16, 2010 at 10:23 pm

Hee hee. Listen, it has taken me 2 1/2 yrs to learn this stuff! Make sure you have an email address tied to your Wordpress account. See if that will work.


Liz@HoosierHomemade August 17, 2010 at 8:50 am

Hey there my friend, there is a plugin that allows your comments to go automatically to the commenters email.
Hope that helps. 🙂

Hi Lisa and thanks for sharing your space with us. Blessings on your new blogging endeavor! My link this week is a wild foraged recipe for rose hip syrup that is very healthy for you and relieves pain. Since we are starting a new challenge on foraging wild food and herbs for herbal remedies and recipes, I thought I better start practicing! 🙂 Alex@amoderatelife


Jason@JLHealthTulsa August 17, 2010 at 1:07 pm

Lisa I am sooo glad that you’re moving and not me this week! I have moved more times than I care to remember and it’s not my favorite thing. Good luck! This week’s post is a GF Pineapple U/D Cake cooked in my Dutch Oven. Thanks for hosting!!
