I think we need a little fluff :)

1. Have you/Will you decorate(d) for the fall?

2. Have you started any Holiday shopping yet?

3. What is one food (or drink) that you look forward to when the weather gets cooler?

Bonus (it was a discussion at work yesterday and wondered others opinions):
4. If you were able to have an inheritance for your children (or maybe you have already experienced this with your own family), and you were able to live comfortably and was not relying on that money to survive, would you rather spend the money while you are alive and watch your children enjoy the money now or would you rather have it given to them when you died?

Dh and I were just talking this morning about changing his dinners (he takes both lunch and dinner to work) from timbrels to soups.

1. Have you/Will you decorate(d) for the fall?

No

2. Have you started any Holiday shopping yet?

Picked up a few things throughout the years for my DDs. Some that were on clearance. Some that were at a store that is a rarity for me to shop at so got the items while I was there.

3. What is one food (or drink) that you look forward to when the weather gets cooler?

Pizza. I try to avoid using my oven when hot but really need it for my pizza crust.

Bonus (it was a discussion at work yesterday and wondered others opinions):
4. If you were able to have an inheritance for your children (or maybe you have already experienced this with your own family), and you were able to live comfortably and was not relying on that money to survive, would you rather spend the money while you are alive and watch your children enjoy the money now or would you rather have it given to them when you died?

I don't quite understand the question it seems like inheritance money is in a separate pot. All of our money is in the same pot (although different accounts). We spend our money on what we need and want. Spend some on our kids. By definition it is not an inheritance until we die.

I don't think that we will every get to the point where we can say that we have money that we don't need because you never know what the future will bring. We do have money in savings that we are not using but that does not mean we don't need it.

No no no .. the wavy thing. That's what I use (I use it when I brown ground meat too ... if I want the meat very finely crumbled).

That's because I spelled it wrong. It's timbales. Sorry about that. Here's a Google page of recipes. http://www.google.com/search?q=timbales&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a#sclient=psy&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=ahH&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&q=timbale+recipes&aq=f&aqi=g1g-m1&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&pbx=1&fp=ab5cdb1806fef4aa They're muffins made out of rice, eggs, meat, and/or vegetables baked in muffin pans or custard cups

LOL on this link I got a google search for timbales--they all look like percussion sites, not recipes!!!!
