Blogwarming Party - Day 5

Hello and welcome to our Blogwarming Party!

We're having a bloggy open house all week to show off our newly renovated blog.
For more info on everything we're doing this week, check our our party invitation here.
+ + + + +

Today's party food is:
Chix Satay
Here are two more recipes from Frank's blog and from this one:
  • Lemon Dill Pasta - great with seafood
  • Tiramisu - not heavy or gluey at all. (You can tell we've eaten some pretty nasty tiramisu in the past.) Absolutely incredible.
Grab a plate and come along for the tour of our new place. Don't forget to sign our guestbook!

+ + + + +

Today we can't wait to introduce you to Pam:
  1. Phone Etiquitte
  2. Pam & Frank's Shenanigans
  3. Our 15th Anniversary
  4. Wordle, a short story in two parts
+ + + + +

Today's party game is called "With a Chicken"
Rachel convulsed with hoots of laughter at this one.

You know how after you read a Chinese fortune cookie, you're supposed to add the words "In bed?" We recently decided it's much funnier with the words "With a chicken." Plus, then you can tell your grandmother why you're snickering.

This new game uses the same concept: Take any song title and add the words "With a chicken" I'll start with a few...

  • Queen: We Will Rock You With A Chicken
  • Brittany Spears: Hit Me Baby One More Time With A Chicken
  • David Bowie: Major Tom With A Chicken
  • The Beach Boys: Surfin' USA With A Chicken
  • John Lennon: Imagine With A Chicken
  • Elton John: Tiny Dancer With A Chicken
  • Santa Claus is Coming to Town With A Chicken

There is another version of this game that's not great for little little kids but my teenager goes into gigglefits... replace "With A Chicken" with "In My Pants"
The Beatles: Yellow Submarine...
... uh, ok, maybe not.
...Let's just stick with the chicken.

+ + + + +


Today's door prize is a trio of Snack Size Pass It On Plates.
($21 value)

Just like an Original Pass It On Plate, each one of these plates has a tracking number on the back, and we donate money to FeedingAmerica.org every time your plate is passed to another person.

The only difference is that these plates are a more snacky-sized 9" across instead of the larger 11" plates.

These are not available online and are a limited edition, so you can't get these just anywhere.

Here are four ways to enter:
+1 comment below to say hello
+1 follow our blog and comment
+1 subscribe (with the little orange thingy or by email) and comment

  13. Hi everyone, I like the chicken game. I'm going to start adding the word when I'm listing my record album jacket coasters.
    Here's a few that I came up with:

    Bon Jovi, "Living in sin... with a chicken"
    Quiet Riot, "Love's a Bi---... with a chicken"
    The Village People, "Hot Cops ... with a chicken"
    Foriegner, "I Need You ... with a chicken"

    Okay, I better stop before I get myself into trouble.
    Have fun everyone!
