Never a dull moment.

I went outside last night to grab something out of my car only to discover that my car was no longer there.  Someone stole my car from the parking lot of my apartment complex!  Are you freaking kidding me?!?  I have State Farm insurance and I am not pleased with them at the moment.  They will pay for a rental car for you if your car is damaged and in the shop, but not if your car is stolen.  That doesn't make sense to me at all.  And when I talked to my insurance agent he said most of the time kids just take the car for a joyride and then abandon it, so I'll probably get my car back.  Awesome . . . what do I do in the meantime? 

Fortunately I didn't have anything hugely valuable in the car . . . other than my mailbox key and the key to my storage area which also happens to be the same key that opens my front door!  My landlord just came out and replaced all the locks for me, thank heavens.  He was also nice enough to do it for free instead of making me pay for it.

On a brighter note, I am planning a solo trip to Dublin and London in the spring.  Yay!

Seriously . . . there is never a dull moment in my life.

UPDATE:  They actually are going to cover a rental for me!  Thank you, thank you, thank you State Farm!!!

Best crisp ever

I've been having appetite issues the last couple of weeks and have been having to force myself to actually eat.  It turns out the best way to lose a quick 15 pounds is to eat nothing.  Imagine that!  Anyway, since it's rare anymore that something sounds good, I jump on the opportunity to eat when something actually sounds appealing.  Today it was fruit crisp.  I love me some fruit crisp and consider myself a master in the art of fruit crispery, but today's batch put all the others to shame.  I'm trying really hard to just use what I have on hand, so I used frozen peach slices and a frozen berry mix.  I mixed them up with a little flour and sugar, then topped them with a mixture of yellow cake mix, oats and butter.  I've never tried cake mix in a crisp and it is amazingly good.  It may be my new go-to dessert recipe.  I suggest y'all try it!
