“I want to go to there!”

31 Jan

Welcome to February!  Well, almost.

I spent the weekend going out to eat at Burton’s Grill, which was delicious!

Walking.  Trying to get back on track with training since I’m doing the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincy in May.  My mom and I have been walking the Flying Pig Half Marathon for the past 7 years!  Can you believe it?  It’s an awesome race and I am so excited to walk it again with my mom.

Mom, Auntie Anne, and Allie!

We’ll look something like this, but not walking in the snow, and not in Detroit, and it’ll only be the two of us.  But, ya know, other than that…

Today was only a half day at school.  It always seems that half days are crazier than normal days.  Why is that?

Who are the three funniest people in the world? Who are the three funniest people you know personally?

The three funniest people in the world are:

Tina Fey – no matter what, Tina Fey always makes me laugh!  She just has smart humor and knows how to get to the audience and make them laugh.

Steve Martin – I mean come on!?  The Jerk, Planes, Trains and Automobiles…  “If I could have two wishes this holiday season it would be that 30 million dollars would be given directly, to me.”

Steve Carrell- He is hilarious in the office.  It’s so awkwardly, painfully funny.

The three funniest people I know personally are:

My Auntie Anne:

Need I say more?

I can always remember her making me laugh!  And she still does.

My brother

My good buddy Arla

Arla is a work friend.  She always can tell a story or little anecdote to make you laugh and lighten the day.  I am glad that she’s around 🙂

This was hard to whittle it down to three.  I love my family and all of them make me laugh on any occasion.  I come from very comedic stock, I must say.

Speaking of family… My heritage is mainly Eastern European.  My father’s side is Hungarian and my mother’s is Polish.  So, how do you make a girl from Eastern European descent happy?  I’ll show you!

That would be Polish Kielbasa, mashed potatoes, and sauerkraut.  This was soooo good.  So good in fact, we had it again for dinner tonight.  The sauerkraut was especially yummy.

What we did:

2lbs of sauerkraut (drained)

1 1/2 cups of gin (we didn’t have that much gin so we used 1/4 cup of gin and the rest of Magner’s Ale)

1 teaspoon of carraway seeds

1/2 stick of butter

Put everything in a pot on medium heat except the butter.  Heat to a simmer and let cook about 30 mins or until the liquid has reduced by half.  Add in butter and enjoy!  Super easy and delicious!

  1. Oh yes, there’s food… « The Last Corral - March 18, 2011

    […] That would be corned beef with sauerkraut and Leanne’s Guinness.  Yumminess!  Leanne cooked the corned beef in a crock pot basically all day in Guinness, carrots, and green onions.  The sauerkraut is the same recipe as used here. […]
