Buffalo Wings Without the Mess!

By Liz Roloff | Corporate Office, Corporate Furnished, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Georgia, Food, Lifestyle, | (0) Comments

buffalo wings dipYou may remember from a previous blog (“Sports Superstitions – do they work?”) that I am not a die-hard sports fan. Therefore, this Sunday, for me, is more about the cute commercials and the good food that are traditional parts of “Super Bowl Sunday”... (Super Bowl is this Sunday, right?)

A friend of mine, who I suspect feels the same way I do about the game, posted this Kraft recipe and it had all the necessary ingredients; cream cheese (guilty pleasure), hot sauce (as much as you want), and it’s easy. Just my speed. There are a few other ingredients like chicken and cheese which only add to my anticipation of enjoying this real soon, like on Sunday.

So here it is, enjoy, and GO Denver and Seattle! (aren’t you impressed I know who’s playing?!)

January's Beautiful Birthstone

By Andrea Donahue | Corporate Office, Corporate Furnished, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Apartment Living, Health, Lifestyle, Community, | (0) Comments

Happy Birthday to anyone (including myself!) who has a birthday in the cold, snowy, blustery month of January! I have had many a birthday party cancelled due to unexpected snow storms where guests didn’t feel like driving, or going out at all, in the snow!!

One of the warmest things the month of January has to offer is its beautiful birthstone, Garnet. The gemstone Garnet comes in a variety of colors from the deepest red to a bold green. In between those colors are shades of beautiful oranges and yellows. Probably the most commonly recognized shade is the rich, deep, dark red to which the gemstone Garnet derived its name. Garnet derives from the word granatum, which means seed, and is referring to the Garnet’s resemblance to the pomegranate seed.

Keep in mind the beautiful Garnet for friends with January birthdays…as the gemstone also represents eternal friendship and trust!
