Thank You my Jazzy Belle Stevi Tour Pal!!! I LOVE YOU!!

Tour Pal (Stevi, a.k.a. The Jazzy Belle) dressed me for one my party night in Vegas with this fabulous black ruffle number from H&M.

Sorry the picture is so grainy :(

While shopping at the Miracle Mile Mall in the Planet Hollywood Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada I too went to H&M and bought a fabulous long black camisole thing. I will post pictures later.

Earth Day Eve

Happy Earth Day!

Last night The Jazzy Belle and I had a SLUMBER PARTY!!!! So much fun. We made a deliciously yummy dinner, played dress up, and laughed, laughed, laughed! Stevi (The Jazzy Belle) chose a bunch of fabulous winter outfits for me to take to New Zealand. I will post the outfits when I take pictures in beautiful NZ! I also borrowed a super fun black ruffle dress to wear in Las Vegas this weekend! So cute. It is a little big on top but I am going to try fold the fabric and tie ribbons on the shoulders to make it fit better. Hopefully it will work. 

First on our menu last night was Royal Winyouette's which is Gouda cheese wrapped in a butter croissant crust.

You will need to remove the wax cover and cut the cheese into 1/4's then half the thickness.

Croissant dough

Wrap the Gouda in the croissant dough and make sure it is completely pressed closed. 

For our green side we had Sugar Snap Peas that come conviently in a microwavable bag. Lazy?Maybe. Good? Yes. 
Next on the menu was Salmon with Lemon and Thyme.

We used a little salt and pepper to taste and cooked the salmon (skin on) over high heat with olive oil and lemon juice. Both of Stevi's ovens were in use, one for our Royal Winyouettes and the other because she was baking chicken for her Earth Day Quesadilla office party.

International Beauty Show in Las Vegas

7. Excalibur, Las Vegas
We are staying at the Excalibur hotel, not one of my first choices. It was actually on my I refuse to stay at these places list, but the price is right and after reading more about it, it could always be worse. We could be staying at Circus Circus. The Excalibur is 18 yrs old, recently remodeled and is number 7 on Forbes Traveler's List of Biggest Hotels. 

I am excited about going to the pool!

I wish Lady Gaga would make an appearance at the Hair Show!

I went to my dad's house on my way home from Tuscaloosa. We hung out for a while, I looked at some cool coins, movies, and got some new t-shirts. I ate some grilled cheese crackers and drank a Mountain Dew. These are things I do when I am over there. I thought I would share a little bit of my dad's coolness with you.
Among the Ninji stars is a knife from Nepal used for slitting peoples throat from behind. It kinda sounds creepy, but my dad collects cool stuff and he is dorky not scary. 

Not the best quality picture. It was taken with my Blackberry Pearl camera. If you are unfamiliar with a Ninji Star or a Judy Chop, I suggest you watch this video.

How I prepared the Tilapia for my Tilapia and citrus salad.

This is my favorite lemon juice. Yum. 

Lunch preparation. 

Fresh Thyme
Fresh Rosemary

They make any dish delicious. I love to use fresh thyme, rosemary, olive oil, and lemon juice when I prepare quinoa. 

First I added salt and freshly coarse ground black pepper. About 1 tbsp. Then I covered one tilapia with bright yellow turmeric. On both I played around with a few sprinkles of celery salt, red pepper flakes, paprika, and cayenne. 

Then it was time to add the Thyme.

You hold the sprig with one hand and with the other hand, hold tightly with 2 fingers and scrape down. The fresh leaves will easily fall onto the plate.


I drizzled a little olive oil in the pan. Then I poured some lemon juice in the middle:

I let the oil and juice warm up over medium high heat. 
When I could feel it getting warm I placed the tilapia face down.

After about 3 minutes I could see the tilapia begin to turn white- a sign that it is cooked.
I then flipped it with my special fish flipping spatula. 

After an additional few minutes I was ready to plate the fish.
