Monday Madness

workMonday, Monday…

I haven’t seen Jurassic World yet, but apparently a lot of running is done in high heels. On the Late Late Show with James Corden, Chris Pratt tries it out. Methinks he does it too well. LOL!

 

I personally enjoy this Lip Sync Battle between Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt. Miley Cyrus vs. Janis Joplin. Just know – these two take this battle VERY seriously as you will see…let’s just say Anne takes it to a whole new level!

Rock your Monday!

workOh, my. It’s Monday!!!

For those of you new to my blog, on Mondays I like to provide you with something that makes you smile. This is because Mondays usually get a bad rap. You know what I mean.

And, guess what? I’d love for you to contribute your favorite funnies as well! Just email me!

Let’s get some giggle on with the following videos:

First, I present you with “Stock Photos in Real Life”. Two guys look around and see that their fellow employees are all in stock photo poses. Funny.

Does your dog share your couch? Or, actually, take over your couch? Watch this Great Dane’s expressions as he joins his owner on the couch!!

I love both James Taylor and Jimmy Fallon. So what could be better than “Two James Taylors On A Seesaw”?

Have a great Monday!

Even though school is out, the rest of us still have to work to pay the bills. But never fear, Monday Madness is here!

First up, someone decided to mash up the “Ducktales” theme song with Beyonce‘s “All The Single Ladies” video.

Great Danes being spoiled rotten. Dinky doesn’t like the fact that Romeo is getting loves instead of him. Wait until 1:40.

Finally, Ellen likes to scare her guests when they are on her show. Here are some of her favorite scares.

workMonday.

Wait! It’s Tuesday – Memorial Day was yesterday.

This means that most of us are back at work today. Thus, we need laughter! Below are some videos that I hope will meet the requirement.

First up, Jimmy Fallon and Jamie Foxx do Musical Impressions. Jennifer Hudson impersonation of “On top of spaghetti”? Awesome.

This is actually an ad for Pizza Hut. They creatively make fun of selfie sticks!!!

Finally, I do enjoy zefrank1’s videos on YouTube. This is the Sad Cat Diary.

Foodie Friday

flagWoo-hoo! It’s Friday!

And, here in the United States, it’s a three-day weekend as we observe Memorial Day, when we remember those who gave their lives while serving in the country’s armed forces.

Many also call this weekend the official start of summer and there are many grills being used to cook hamburgers, hot dogs, fish, vegetables, and one of my favorites – barbeque pork ribs!!!

Now, I currently live in Texas but I grew up in Florida, and have lived in South Carolina and North Carolina. This means that I have a had a variety of barbeque sauces! Let me tell you, the sauce defines a region’s ribs and people get mighty feisty about which region has the best sauce.

ribsFollowing is a list and description of sauces:

The U.S. has a wide variety of differing barbecue sauce tastes. Some are based in regional tradition.

  • East Carolina Sauce – Most American barbecue sauces can trace their roots to the two sauces common in North Carolina. The simplest and the earliest were supposedly popularized by African slaves who also advanced the development of American barbecue. They were made with vinegar, ground black pepper, and hot chili pepper flakes. It is used as a “mopping” sauce to baste the meat while it was cooking and as a dipping sauce when it is served. Thin and sharp, it penetrates the meat and cuts the fats in the mouth. There is little or no sugar in this sauce.
  • Lexington Dip (a.k.a. Western Carolina Dip or Piedmont Dip) – In Lexington and in the “Piedmont” hilly areas of western North Carolina, the sauce is often called a dip. It is a lot like the East Carolina Sauce (above) with tomato paste, tomato sauce, or ketchup added. The vinegar softens the tomato.
  • Kansas City – Thick, reddish-brown, tomato or ketchup-based with sugars, vinegar, and spices. Evolved from the Lexington Dip (above), it is significantly different in that it is thick and sweet and does not penetrate the meat as much as sit on the surface. This is the most common and popular sauce in the US and all other tomato based sauces are variations on the theme using more or less of the main ingredients.
  • Memphis – Similar to the Kansas City style, typically having the same ingredients, but tending to have a larger percentage of vinegar and use molasses as a sweetener.
  • Florida – Similar to the Memphis style because it has a higher percentage of vinegar than Kansas City style. Florida style is characterized by the tropical fruit flavors such as orange, mango, guava, papaya, pineapple, and tamarind as well as peppers with some heat such as chipotle and habanero. Because of its fruity flavor it is commonly served with pork, chicken and seafood.
  • South Carolina Mustard Sauce – Part of South Carolina is known for its yellow barbecue sauces made primarily of yellow mustard, vinegar, sugar and spices. This sauce is most common in a belt from Columbia to Charleston, an area settled by many Germans. Vinegar-based sauces with black pepper are common in the coastal plains region as in North Carolina, and thin tomato- and vinegar-based sauces are common in the hilly regions as in North Carolina.
  • TX BBQTexas – In some of the older, more traditional restaurants the sauces are heavily seasoned with cumin, chili peppers, bell peppers, chili powder or ancho powder, lots of black pepper, fresh onion, only a touch of tomato, little or no sugar, and they often contain meat drippings and smoke flavor because meats are dipped into them. They are medium thick and often resemble a thin tomato soup. They penetrate the meat easily rather than sit on top.
  • Alabama White Sauce – North Alabama is known for its distinctive white sauce, a mayonnaise-based sauce, which is used predominantly on chicken and pork. It is composed of mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt and black pepper.

Now we have some fun! Which sauce style is your favorite?

workHello, Monday!

For those of you new to my blog, on Mondays I like to provide you with something that makes you smile. This is because Mondays usually get a bad rap. You know what I mean.

And, guess what? I’d love for you to contribute your favorite funnies as well! Just email me!

Yesterday was Mother’s Day here in the U.S. With that in mind, the videos here are a tribute to moms. I do hope you enjoy them!

This video has been around awhile, but most people love it, no matter how many times they watch it. The Mom Song With Lyrics. You’re welcome.

A friend shared this next video on Facebook and it resonated in so many ways! Another oldie, but it was new to me. Two brothers who are opposites. That is all.

Finally, as we know, David Letterman is ending his reign as the THE late night king. One of my favorite moms, Tina Fey, gives him the last dress she’ll ever wear. My favorite part is that she boldly shows how many of us women actually fit into our dresses today. Thank you, Spanx.
