McCain will show for the Debate

Well it appears tonight’s first Presidential debate will go on as planned tonight in Oxford, MS 9 pm est. McCain originally announced that he was suspending his campaign and wanted to postpone the debate to return to the White House to focus his attention towards the big $700 billion bail out plan dealing with all the Wall Street financial messes currently going on. Well there is still no agreement reached but McCain has decided that he will be attending the debate tonight and resuming with his campaign plans. Obama had already committed to being present for the debate. His response was that you should be able to multi task. For some reason I knew all along that McCain would show up for this debate tonight. I couldn’t imagine him wanting to allow Obama all that media spotlight attention for himself, especially after his poll numbers have been gaining more grounds. Both candidates where present at the White House discussing the bail out talks yesterday. This shall be an interesting debate to tune in to tonight.

Also voter registration is coming to an end, so if you haven’t registered what are you waiting for? I'm not the one to persuade and push politics on anyone but I do think everyone should place a vote for the candidate of their choice. Express yourself, let your voice be heard and use your right to vote in this election.

Lipstick and Politics

What is really going on with all the lipstick remarks going on with the candidate's that has just been such an uproar these past few days? We have a video with McCain and his lipstick comment, Palin and her lipstick comment and Obama and his lipstick comment. McCain allegedly referring to the Clinton's, Palin upsetting a few hockey moms particularly those that don't wear lipstick and found the comparison humiliating, then Obama as calling Palin a pig and showing sexism, enough already with all this lipstick smear talk.

My husbands yummy spaghetti salad

This is a recipe that my husband has became famous for. No matter which holiday or special occasion it is this is the most highly requested dish for my husband to prepare. We have been teasing everyone for years as to the recipe for his hit making spaghetti dish. We call it spaghetti salad because it can be served hot or chilled either way its delicious. Haven't met a person yet that dislikes this dish. Some have turned their nose up at the appearance of it but after tasting it, they absolutely loved it.

My husband is the type that just cooks as he goes along so measurements may not be accurate as he really isn't the type of cook that takes the time to measure his ingredients when he cooks, so you may have to play around with it until you get it right to your tasting but after several requests here goes directly from him:

1 small box of spaghetti (he prefers thick)
1 can small peas (drained)
1 can original rotel
1 can cream of chicken
1/2 box of Velveeta cheese (sliced in chunks)
1 red bell pepper (finely diced)
1 green bell pepper (finely diced)
salt & pepper to taste

Let the spaghetti boil in water that is already hot till it begins to get a little fluffy then add all the ingredients to the pot and boil uncovered stirring occasionally. Cook until pasta and vegetables are tender and the cheese has melted forming a creamy spaghetti salad. Eat up and enjoy there is no such thing as leftovers with this dish because it leaves quick even when we double the recipe.

I will update this with a photo the next time my husband prepares this, so for those whom haven't tried or heard of this dish bookmark my page and be sure to check back if you have any concerns as to how it's supposed to look once it's done. I hope you enjoy it!
