Tasty Tuesday!

Thank goodness Donna keeps sending me recipes, or I wouldn't have anything to post! This week is gonna be an off one on one at the hospital, which is something that just about kills a night shift person.

Marie finished reading Hero, and she seemed to like it pretty well. She did make the point that there wasn't enough sex, but I can always add more! Still waiting to hear from my editor. . . who is in Italy.

Savory Pork Stew

"A savory stew of pork and potatoes to warm you inside and out. Great with crusty bread or corn muffins for dipping into stew and cleaning the bowls!"

  1. Well ladies I missed the post last night because I was staying over with a friend who lives out of town. She recently purchased a mobile home so we had a bit of a new home party/sleepover. It was fun.

    I really liked the pictures of the plants, pumpkins and of course sweet adorable Sweetpea XD She's so cute.

    I like the pictures of Christian too. Is it me or is he getting yummier and yummier?

    Mm mm I'll have some of him with that delicious sounding stew. I really need to cook more XD

  2. sorry folks.

    Christian just leaves me cold. pouty little boys and their pouty little toys do nothing for me.

    I like my men a bit wilder, a LOT darker, and less self-enchanted.

    I mean . . For Cryin Out Loud . . he's got an erection from looking AT HIMSELF!


  3. Yeah, Olde, that kinda left me cold too. He IS pretty hung-up on himself (snigger), and narcissism is, sorta by definition, not a two-way street. I like guys who appear to have SOME interest in others---maybe that's why Benjy ( who apparently got talked into modeling, didn't enter it because HE thought he was so special ) is so much more engaging than Christian.

    Benjy, and the best other models appear INTERESTED in the viewer, as opposed to trying to be INTERESTING. The issue is whether they seem to want to engage with you, or are just showing themselves off.

  4. Hmmm, one vote for, and two against. Poor Christian....

  5. Well Ladies,
    OLD, Pouty little Boys and there Pouty little toys. LMAO!!!
    And I guess, I'm on the Fence here.
    He seems to have one Ball or UnaBalls. and I too like the EYE Contact we get from our Pre Med Student/Skateboarder/Model Benji.
    I think I'll let the Younger Gal Ana have Christian.She can grab him. Now give us Gerard Butler. And that's another story.
    BY the way ladies.
    This recipe was good. But I Cooked mine in that Slow CookerYesterday about 6 hrs on low. I like my meat and veggies real tender.
    For me 2 Hrs. is not enough.

  6. Whew! Tough crowd today Cheryl! Personally, my take on our Christian is that he is new to modeling. If I remember correctly, he's done some body building, thus the spectacular muscles, but his modeling poses do sometimes look too much like body building poses. He just needs to relax.

    As for looking at himself, well, damn, if I was a guy and had a great body, I'd be damn proud of the hard work it took to look like that!

    Guess we get Christian all to ourselves Ana!

  7. Come on Ladies, we got to give Christan a Break. We don't know him. Like we know Benji. He's still a good looking younger man with Great Thunderthighs. What Lisa said is true. He obviously has worked hard at that body. And he's the model. The photographer calls the shots. Personally I prefer a lover with more maturity. Like Derrick. He's still good Eye Candy. And Lisa and Ana can do the tasting here.
    Cheryl, did you say Marie Told you to add more Sex to Hero? Unbelieveable.

  8. You're right about the poses, Lisa, though, generally speaking, that's more the photographer telling the model what to do than anything. I still think he's cute, but then cute is what attracts me most of the time.

    Yes, Donna, Marie did tell me that! I must be getting more into the story than the sex these days, which,as some folks will tell you, is not a bad thing. Still waiting to hear from the editor. One thing about sex: it's very easy to add more of it!

  9. Well,
    It'll all depend if those SEX scenes you wrote were really Awesome and placed just in the Right places in the Story. FINE!!!! We don't want you to just start having Trag Mount her to the Wall of the Space port every chance he gets. LOL!!! I'd go for that. But!! I just always had this thing for that Bad boy.
