My Life as a Realtor ~
Anticipated storm never really came! Of course the kids were disappointed – but… I had the day to myself – trying to do as much work as possible…
For dinner, I made a dish that I had seen on Rachael Ray – Grilled chicken, eggplant, tomato and mozzarella cheese. Everything but the cheese gets grilled separately - drizzling olive oil and adding a dash of salt & pepper – stacking all and popping back in the over to just melt the cheese! Mmmmm!
Avocado and Corn Salsa from Food Network…

My Life as a Realtor ~
It’s Thursday – and my closing for tomorrow is confirmed – Yahoo! I am so happy for my clients. They are First Time Home Buyers and so looking forward to their first home.
More good news… Fo-Fo – my in-law’s dog that we have been watching since June – left today – another Yahoo! To everyone who didn’t know him, he looked like a cute Koala Bear – but get too close, and you’d lose a finger, or two!
Since my in-laws flew in from Portugal today, David gave Fo-Fo a bath and Joe drove him down to Mt. Vernon, NY. He also had dinner with his family in celebration of their parents return. The kids and I had a simple – easy – and inexpensive dinner – pasta. I also sauted peppers, onion and spicy portuguese chorizo – Yum, Yum. And Amanda made an oh-so-awesome Banana Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake. Eating this cake warm is unbelievably delicious. The recipe came from www.Foodista.com
I ended the day by working and looking forward to tomorrow - and a 2nd slice of cake.

My Life as a Realtor ~
Friday – Yahoo! Important phone calls for a client first thing this morning – request for an appointment to view homes on Monday from another client and calls to an attorney and mortgage broker with concerns for 2 other clients. In the meantime, e-mails, searching, texting, and other calls. And, every so often, Joe would call me upstairs to take a picture of the progression of all his hard work in our master bath…
Tile going up…
adding decorative glass tile…
the final touch, stones that Joe hand picked this summer while in the beach in Portugal.
I went to Shaw’s – again – while waiting for an important call from a client. I also decided to make an Apple Tart – made with Apples, Cream Cheese, Honey and Puff Pastry. A recipe from ThePaperApron.com
It has been raining for weeks here in New Fairfield, CT - and more is in the forecast! So, plans of barbecuing have changed often. Today, I came across a video from Good Morning America. Kate Gosselin from TLC’s – Jon & Kate Plus Eight, makes her Hearty Meatloaf – I know what I’m making for dinner tonight!

Also, a great holiday movie and one of my family’s favorite, A Christmas Story, has a very funny scene where the dad tries to sneak a piece of delicious Turkey - but never makes it due to the neighbors dogs getting to it first!
A Yummy recipe from Jen’s Blog on Homegood’s site:
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread
- 1-15 oz can pure pumpkin
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup oil
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 3-1/2 cups flour
- 3 cups sugar
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups chocolate chips
Combine pumpkin, eggs, oil and water. Mix flour, baking soda, sugar, spices and salt in a separate bowl and add pumpkin mixture. Mix well. Fold in chocolate chips. Place batter into 2 well greased loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until done. Making 2 loafs allows you to share one enjoy the other!
I have so very much to be Thankful for – my family, our health, my and my husband’s job, my country (because I KNOW we will come out of this and be even stronger!), my friends, and my HOME. I am also Thankful for all my past clients that I have assisted in finding their home - where they will have many Holidays, making wonderful memories. AND – I look forward to my future clients and helping them to find a Home for the Holidays as well!
