Frugal Dad's Top Frugality Blogs of 2011

Thought I'd share a great post by Frugal Dad that I'm only just finding: Top Frugality Blogs of 2011. I told myself that today I MUST go out and get some more short-sleeved shirts before the warm weather is upon us for good. Yet, here I am surfing for ways to save money instead. I hate shopping!!
   In hopping back and forth to check out his frugal picks, I happened upon this site that I'll be checking out next: Budgeting with the Bushmans and their Extreme Frugality Festival.
   If interested, I did post a few pics on my Flikr site this morn. I wish I could share the potluck photos with you here!

TreeHugger's Best of Green 2012

Can't wait to check out the nominees!! TreeHugger's Best of Green 2012: Awarding Excellence in Sustainability reader's choice awards!
   Btw, still hashing out what to do about my blogger photo-posting snafu. Seriously considering just switching to exclusively using my Flikr account, Dmarie in KY, from here on out.
   Aren't you glad it's the WEEKEND!?! We've got two parties to hit this afternoon, but frankly, I wish I could just do nothing. Please don't tell anyone I said that! ;)

Link Love Sunday

Dunno why, but I'm getting some weird warning when I try to post photos. Will work on that. Meanwhile, I'll share some links I've been enjoying.

   When I was younger, I collected menus from everywhere I went. Nowadays, instead of asking for a takeout menu, I'll just make a digital copy of a joint's menu, like this one from the Parquette Diner of Lexington, Kentucky. No more paper menus cluttering up my home, yet I still get to "keep" the menus.
   When I'm tired of answering same ole, same ole to "what's for supper?", looking through restaurant menus can give me some new ideas. Which is why I loved this little piece on vintage menus: Food Cooking:
   Here's some more LINK LOVE:
   Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!!

    Local joint gives me ideas: Pangea Cafe, Owensboro, Kentucky

    Pangea Cafe's Asian Vegetable Wrap
    Love, LOVE eating at local joints, and Pangea's one of my favorites. Every time I go here, I come home with ideas of what I might try at home. For instance, next time I make a veggie wrap at home, some of those crispy Chinese noodles will make a nice addition.
       Last visit, we hit the joint at lunch time, so I'm sharing a sandwich extravaganza today. Happy eating everyone!!
    Pangea's Crabcake Sandwich
    Pangea's Meatloaf Sandwich that Hubby loved.
    DD got Pangea's Turkey Club
