Cool Hello from Indiana

So I just found this site while looking for help on using MasterCook.

I live in Plainfield, Indiana (just west of Indianapolis) and work as a CPA. I live with my overweight kitty, Betty, and her two dozen toys (no exaggeration). We (ok, more me) like to read, play chess and watch NASCAR.

I do a lot of cooking and freezing for the week ahead because by the time I get off work and hit the gym I'm too tired to do any substantial cooking. Sometimes making a salad seems like a lot of work.

I do a lot of grilling of veggies and meats - I can now make marinades from scratch in my sleep. I keep most of my favorite recipes in a 2 inch binder but I'm working at moving some of those over to MasterCook.

I look forward to meeting ya'll!

Welcome to DC......do we call you Rayvin or Silver?? Interesting name....anyway, you'll like it here......some very nice, and friendly people. Take a look around, and enjoy.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

So who wins more at chess, you or Betty?

No matter how many Bibles he swears on, when a dog tells you he's a vegetarian, he's lying.

Hi SilverRayven. I was out your way years back; got a speeding ticket in Speedway and tangled up in a snow storm that closed down the airport for quite some time but otherwise the people were quite nice.

I spent a number of years on the road, and what I remember about your neck of the woods is Ben Hur. What a lovely place! We actually were there one time when the race was on ... having lived in Daytona for a number of years, we learned to hide out when it is race week!
