An Amazon Screenshot that Made Me :-) and Free Promo!

 

Amazon ca print screen feb 21 15

This was the screenshot over at Amazon.ca today, when I did a keyword search for “haiku” in the Kindle store!

Wowsa, I wasn’t expecting to have one of my haiku books: (Haiku Reflections I) in the top spot; what a nice surprise. 🙂

And there are 100 pages of books, for the keyword: haiku. 

I LOVE writing and reading haiku sooooo much. It’s such an honor to have people reading my work and buying my books/eBooks too.

I also have 2 free Kindle promos on this weekend, one for my midlife romance novel:

Third Chapter, Second Chance.

The other promo is for my cookbook:

The Groovy Green Kitchen I: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker.

Both are available all weekend for free, as Kindle downloads at: Amazon.com, .ca, UK,….etc.

See the Amazon.com links on the sidebar here or visit your own Amazon site to download copies.

It’s back to typing for me here! 

Have a great weekend. Happy Reading and Cooking too! 🙂

Friday Funnies! ;-) Week 1

Welcome to:

Friday Funnies!

Week 1 

velveeta box

This is a story  (click to watch the news video) that made me LOL this week. I hope it does for you too. 🙂

Apparently, there is a ‘cheesy meltdown’ happening in the U.S., with a rumour of Velveeta shortages looming.

And with the Super Bowl coming up very soon, that means a possible “dipping disaster” of major proportion for Velveeta dip lovers everywhere!

I must be living a sheltered life (at least in terms of football party snack foods) but I didn’t even realize that people ate Velveeta anymore. 😉

This was a staple when I was a kid.

We loved it on :

Grilled cheese sandwiches, in mac and cheese, or a slice/chunk, straight from the box.

And always cut with the Kraft wire cutter that we got free, from sending in box tops. Anyone remember those???

Not to offend any Velveeta fans, but this is IMO, one strange “food” and far from any cheese that I’m familiar with now. I still remember that strange, rubbery texture and unique flavor. 😉

But apparently, there is a whole new generation of Velveeta lovers who are seriously addicted to this Kraft classic.

Who’d a thunk it?

Goes to show, with enough hype and thanks to Facebook etc. anything can be sold and in HUGE quantities too. 😉

Simple Pleasures: Autumn’s Bountiful Harvest

One of my favorite simple pleasures of Autumn.

The harvest of tree fruits and root vegetables, now at their flavorful peak. Including of course, crisp and delicious fall apples.

These BC Gala apples are so good to eat fresh or to add to a favorite recipe.

And don’t they make a lovely (albeit photo) still life to behold?

 One of my favorite apple recipes from Not Just for Vegetarians is: Curried Apple Soup(click for recipe).

Tangy, satisfying and a great choice for any fall supper.

What is your favorite apple variety/recipe?

Happy Cooking and Happy Autumn! (it’s almost here)

Don’t forget to savor the simple pleasures, every day!   🙂
