Mix Tape Monday - Two

Yes, I am well aware that today's Mix Tape Monday post is two days late, so sue me.

Entertaining facts about this cd

1. I actually had to Google two of these songs to figure out what they were and who the artist was.  I think that means I'm either old or I need to listen to this cd more.

Songs on cd Numero Dos:

  1. Kelly Clarkson - Behind Those Hazel Eyes
  2. Foo Fighters - Best of You
  3. Yellowcard - Lights and Sounds
  4. Ryan Cabrera - Shine On
  5. Relient K - Who I Am Hates Who I've Been
  6. All American Rejects - Dirty Little Secret
  7. The Veronicas - 4ever
  8. Fallout Boy - Sophmore Slump or Comeback of the Year
  9. The Click Five - Just the Girl
  10. Zebrahead - Wasted

And now you can laugh hysterically while thinking about me jamming out to this cd all the way to Pittsburg this past weekend!

Recipies to Try...

I have been looking for some new ideas for dinner recipies and things to ship for Chris and for Baking Gals.  So far, I've got a list of 6 must try recipies - anyone want to try them out with me?

1. Monster Magic Cookie Bars - Courtesy of Kate's Recipe Box
2. Swiss Chard and Sweet Potato Gratin - Courtesy of Smitten Kitchen
3.  Mexican Rice - from Silver Pencils
4. Chocolate Granola Bars - from Cookies & Cups
5. Nutty Cocoa Cookies - via That Wife
6. Troegs Triple Mango IPA (beer recipies count, right!?:) - from Beer Buzz

And based on my cooking/baking skills, my kitchen will look like this afterwards:

Mix Tape Monday - One


Thanks to cleaning out two Rubbermaid bins over the weekend, I now have a new collection of cd's in my car! The beauty of my 6-cd changer in the Acura is that I can easily swap new cds in and out depending on my mood, the weather, you know.  Not that the Jeep can't do the same thing, but the Jeep's 10-cd changer is in the way back - like, Jessica go climb over the center console, back row, and into the trunk to change the damn Pearl Jam cd.  No thank you.

So - thanks to the awesome cds I found, we're going to have Mix Tape Monday for about the next 11 weeks. Because I found 11 cds of all kinds of genres, from high school track through senior year of college! I know you're excited, because I was excited as all heck jamming out yesterday!

Entertaining facts about cd Numero Uno:
  1. It was made by Kevin
  2. Kevin, who only ever calls me Jess or Jessica, wrote Jessi's Mix on the cd
  3. It is from sometime in 2006
Songs on cd Numero Uno:
  1. The Killers - Mr. Brightside
  2. John Mayer - You're Beautiful
  3. The Starting Line - Best of Me
  4. Fall Out Boy - Sugar We're Going Down 
  5. P.O.D. - Boom
  6. Ashlee Simpson - Boyfriend
  7. Fall Out Boy - Dance Dance
No, go re-live whatever years of your life that those songs just rediscovered for you!
