My 'toast' loss is your 'toast' gain: A giveaway!!

The officials at "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" have offered me - and one of you - an exciting consolation prize because my "Welsh Rarebit: Kansas Style" did not make the cut for the "toast off" in New York City. It's a prize package including an I Can't Believe It's Not Butter VIP coupon, a KitchenAid 2-slice toaster, ceramic serving basket (to keep your baked goods warm at the table), 4 clamp-top spice herb jars and toast tongs (something I didn't even know existed.) All you have to do is leave a comment below explaining how you like your toast (no recipe required).  I will put all the entries into a hat and choose one. If you don't want to leave a comment online, simply email your comment to cathy@boomergirl.com.  (Note: The drawing will be totally random and I will be blindfolded.) The winner will be announced right here on July 6th. Good luck!

I like my toast golden brown and still a bit warm with real butter and a touch of honey. And a cup of cocoa on the side wouldn't hurt, either. <3

I love my toast with butter and homemade strawberry jam . . .
I like my toast lightly toasted with real butter all nice and melted in.
Love that you're sharing the gifts you received--just like the old times when you had your drawings!

Homemade bread toasted golden brown, butter all melted in, and maybe some cinnamon sugar. Thanks for offering a fun giveaway!

Now that I'm low carbing, my toast is made with a high protein, low carb fiber bread. I like it toasted with a slice of cheese. Yum. Thanks BG!

Multi-grain bread with lots of
seeds (preferably from Great
Harvest on Vermont), unsalted
butter and raspberry jam from
Harry & David. Add a cup of
hot tea w/cream & sugar and
breakfast is served!

Thickly sliced sourdough from a local French bakery. Slather that golden toasty goodness with butter and cinnamon sugar or withhold the butter slather with either strawberry or blueberry jam. This same bread, toasted, makes a divine foundation for BLTs when the tomatoes are ripe, juicy warm from the vine.

I like my toast on the "light" side, not too dark brown. And unsalted butter on it. Of course chunky peanut butter and raspberry jam are nice too, but sometimes I like it w. just the butter.

I love to mix it up when I have my toast. One piece slathered with I can't believe it's not butter spread and then lovingly layered with a coat of chunky peanut butter on top. The other piece would also begin with my butter spread but either be topped with a light layer of 1/2 sugar Smucker's fruit jams or a thin coat of honey. Thanks for the opportunity Cathy. Laurie
Cinnamon and sugar, baby! The thicker the better, but you know...I use whole wheat bread!

Personally, I like my toast as part of brunch in a really nice hotel. :)

I love toast simple, with a slab of butter. Yum

I like my toast hot enough to melt butter but not crispy or brown. I didn't know clamp-top herb jars existed, either. Or toast tongs, LOL! (I've been burning my fingers all my life!)

I'll be back after these messages

Boy, I thought I'd never see the old blog again after the whirlwind of life I've had - and am still having - this fall.  Thanks for not giving up on me.
First, the wedding in late October came off with only one hitch. (Don't get me started on over-extended wedding planners.) I ended up cobbling an outfit together from Chico's in taupe (my spin on the mother-of-the-groom mandate: Wear beige and keep your mouth shut), threw on a bunch of pearls and an autumnal pashmina, and did my own hair. Boom! Done. The beautiful Sunday evening wedding in the country culminated a week-long string of activities I have come to call Burning Man East due to the predominance of bonfires at various celebrations. Big fun, big exhaustion.
Three days after the newlyweds returned to Brooklyn, my son summoned the hubs to Game 5 of the World Series in Queens (in which the home team was playing the Mets.) The kid flew his old man to NYC,  bought tickets for themselves and two others, and put him u…

Gray hair: A luxury anyone can afford.

I got one of those back-handed compliments on my gray hair from a stranger today: "I wish I could do it. But, I'm afraid of looking old....oh, gawd....but YOURS looks great... really!!" 
    No harm, no foul. It's happened before.
    Charla Krupp, author of "How Not to Look Old," once said, "it's such a luxury to be able to go gray. Because it is an aging look, and it means that you don't care about people knowing your age." 
    She was probably right. Thankfully, I've never been shy about stating my age - it's 56, for the record - or asking others their number, especially when playing 'Who do you know?' The gentler, albeit sneakier, way is asking the year they graduated high school, but sometimes I forget and just blurt it out, often taking people aback.
      But, does it bother me? The looking older part, I mean?
      No. But, admittedly, I'm married. I'm not in the meat market, the job market, or any othe…

Sabi: Helping your medicine cabinet look hip

I've always said that the companies who figure out how to make aging cool will win baby boomers' hearts in the end (or, better yet, a decade or two before the end.) The stakes are high. There are 78 million of us and gazillions of dollars to be made on our inevitable decline. Enter Sabi. With a mission "....to create products that are intuitively and beautifully designed in order to infuse life’s daily rituals with delight," Sabi boasts that their products "marry superb functionality, simplicity, and aesthetics to make the most mundane to-dos – from taking your daily vitamins to taking out the trash – more enjoyable." I received this bevy of review samples in the mail yesterday: pill folio (aka: 'pill organizer'), dispenser, chopper, crusher and holster. I have to admit, I like the look - sleek, simple and utilitarian....although two of my friends have said they'd need 3 pill folios to hold all their supplements. (Sigh.) Still, I give it two…
