Hellmann's Turkey Challenge

Who doesn't like Turkey.  I know I do,  in fact here is one of my favorite recipes to do with left over turkey.
Creamy Turkey Soup

1 onion, large, chopped
3 celery ribs, cut into 1/4 inch pieces (I don't like celery too much so I use celery salt or seeds)
6 tablespoon butter
6 tablespoon flour, all purpose
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried
1/2 teaspoon savory
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
1 1/2 cup milk
4 cup turkey, cooked and cubed 
5 carrot, medium, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cup turkey broth 

In a large kettle, saute onion and celery in butter until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the flour and seasonings; gradually add milk, stirring constantly until thickened. Add turkey and carrots. Add enough broth until soup is desired consistency. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

My Twilight experience

I got to see "Twilight" at 8:00 and the theater wasn't really crowded at all.   The movie was awesome..we got out about 10:00 or so and oh my gosh there were people lined up all over the place to see the midnight showing.  there was one fan that actually wore a wedding dress like Bella in the movie, (talk about dedication).  it was just crazy there was another girl that had blue duck tape under her eyes that said Team Jacob all I can say is "Ouch"
there were older women taking pictures with the cardboard signs of Edward or Jacob.  It was absolute craziness everywhere I turned.  I was so glad that I went at 8:00 but the movie itself was totally awesome!  as we were leaving people were still coming in with their chairs waiting for the midnight showing.  I had fun.
If anyone is going to see this movie I would love to know how your experience was.

Fisher Price Regurgitating Rico Launcher review

When I received the Fisher Price regurgitating Rico launcher and tried it out, I have to say it was really fun, the foam balls soar high and fly across the room, at one time I think our bird was ducking- both the boys had so much fun with this although it says ages 3 and higher my sons 11 and 8 really had fun with this toy.  This toy is really fun and.  even though it says ages 3 I think I would say ages 5 and up because sometimes it's really hard to push in the feet to get the balls to fly.  You put 3 balls in Ricos mouth and push in his feet and the balls come shooting out. and it has some cute sayings.  This toy retails for $30.00 at fisherprice.com
This toy would be a favorite for any Penguins of Madagascar fan.  For more information on this toy go to http://www.fisher-price.com and go check them out on Facebook and give them a like. http://www.facebook.com/fisherprice
