Princess Diana's Niece - Lady Kitty Spencer

Lady in red: The young charity ambassador looked stunning in a floor-length gown

"Give Us Time is a small charity founded by Dr Liam Fox MP that takes one-week holidays donated by owners of holiday homes and timeshares and matches them with British soldiers in need of rest rehabilitation and reconnection with their families."

Diana Princess of Wales Nieces, Lady Amelia, Lady Eliza, Lady Kitty Spencer are a triple threat of awesomeness. It's not their beauty, which is stunning to say the least, so much, it's in their pedigree.

The Spencer family is far more Royal than Queen Elizabeth's and Prince Phillips family tree, the Spencer family lineage is a British as it gets where as The Queen and Prince Phillips family have German roots. 

I think that's why Diana had so much chutzpah dealing with the Royals in her early days. She was more Royal than they were and she knew it , they knew it and so did everyone else in society and the royal establishment. I think she liked to stick it to them every once in a while :) 

And cheers to Earl Spencer (Diana's brother) too,  for raising the Lady's in South Africa, along with his other children away from the press while they grow up. Lady Amelia got into a bit of a bust up at a McDonalds a while back, but I hate line budgers too,  I'm with the Lady on that one.

Corgi Puppy - Pumpkin Playtime

Recipe on Deck - Leftover Turkey Empanadas

Mmm empanadas are so great, you can fill them with whatever you like, I used my leftover turkey and sweet potato from Thanksgiving and added a little sauteed bell and chipoltle peppers.

I made another batch with leftover Turkey, Cranberry and Stuffing as filling

You can use apple pie filling and dust them with cinnamon sugar if you want sweet empanadas, go crazy! Empanadas make a new universe of left over possibilities.

Butterfan's Empanada Dough

3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp sugar
1 pinch of salt (a good one)
3 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup +1 tbsp cold lard
1 tbsp cold butter
3/4 cup cold chicken stock
1 cold egg

Sift the dry ingredients then cut in the shortening (lard & butter) with a fork or pastry cutter. Mix the egg into the chicken stock and add it gradually into the shortening and flour mixture, knead the dough for 1 minute.

Chill the dough for 3 hours, then fill with you favourite filling, crimp the sides (as in seal them right up) and fry them up in 350 degree oil until golden and floating, mmm mmm! Or freeze a batch of them before frying for quick appetizers come Christmas.

You're welcome!

Depeche Mode Live in Berlin (Trailer)

"The soundtrack of my life." November 17th can't come quickly enough!

The Martha vs Paltrow feud is heating up

Oh this is goood. Martha took an awesome swipe at Fishsticks Paltrow in the November issue of Martha Stewart. Why would anyone try and challenge Martha at her own game? What a fool.


This was in Martha Stewart's latest issue, a totally hilarious comparison between coupling and uncoupling. 

Every Thanksgiving table should be blessed with the presence of a long-married pair who bring out the best in each other, are completely enamored despite their differences, and leave every other guest thinking, I’ll have what they’re having. Our holiday pies honor such so there’s a pleasant mix of textures and flavors in every bite. No matter how you slice partnerships, each spotlighting the perfect marriage of crust and filling these six irresistible desserts, there is a whole lot to love.
