Sunday Social

1. What is your dream job
Oh, that would be a paid moderator with HuffPostLive. I enjoy being able to chat with the Community, have your questions or comments read to the guests or appear as a Google Hangout guest. If you read my blog, you probably know that I'm a fan.

2. If you had just won the lottery and didn't need to work for money, what would you do with your time?
I no longer work so my daily life wouldn't change much. I would love to travel, once a year, with my hubby. And I would have funds to seek alternative pain management treatments.

3. What piece of career advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field?
I worked in the call center industry for more than 20 years. I was able to work at home, for 7 years. I would recommend that one stay current with customer service trends, keep their computer skills current (word processing, spreadsheets, etc) and develop multitask skills.

And if you're working at home, make sure to keep your computer equipment updated and maintained. Also consider having backup headsets, keyboards for emergencies. I actually spilled coffee on a keyboard, during a work shift. I had to log off, contact my supervisor and run to Walmart for another one. Yikes.

4. What would be your ideal "just for fun" job?
That's easy! I love being a housewife. I actually have fun cooking, baking, cleaning and decorating our home. And I get lots of wonderful benefits. (kisses, hugs)

5. What was your first "real" job?
I had a job as a secretary, for a property management company. I actually thought that's what I wanted to do with my life. I was fired 2 weeks later. That was a blessing.

Isn't it great when you figure out that things happen for a reason such as losing a job that isn't right for you? It's always such a feeling of relief to know you've dodged a bullet.

Thanks for dropping by my blog for Sunday Social. Hope your new week and month are going well!

Korean Beef with Brown Rice

I first discovered the strawberry fridge cake on Pinterest, this summer. We love strawberries, cake and that's its kept in the fridge. I'll definitely be making it again! Source: via Rona on Pinterest strawberry fridge cake

Marcus and I first came across fry bread while living in Maine. There it's called fried dough. It's typically served at fairs.

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
