Wednesday Word of the Week

So I realize that today isn’t Wednesday but I wasn’t home Wednesday and didn’t have anything queued up so here is your word of the week…for last week, haha ūüôā

I’m still reading the book Dark Money by Jane Mayer and came across another word that I had to look up in the dictionary – yes I still use one of those. ¬†So the word of the week is:

Apostasy Р the abandonment or renunciation of a religious or political belief

Enjoy!

 

Wednesday Word of the Week

A girlfriend of mine recently invited me over for a fabulous dinner to help celebrate my graduating from college. ¬†She had a delicious hors d’oeuvres or horse de overs (depending on what part of Wisconsin you’re from!) ¬†of cheese, crackers, grapes, apples and wine. ¬†What I really loved was the cheese. ¬†I am from Wisconsin after all ūüôā ¬†It was a brie and it was the most delicious, creamy cheese I have ever had.

I thought it would be good to use Brie as my word of the week this week.

Brie –¬†is a soft cow’s-milk cheese named after Brie, the French region from which it originated (roughly corresponding to the modern d√©partement of Seine-et-Marne). It is pale in color with a slight grayish tinge under a rind of white mold. The rind is typically eaten, with its flavor depending largely upon the ingredients used and its manufacturing environment.¬†

And while I don’t usually endorse any product here (and I am not getting paid for this), the picture below is the Brie cheese we had that night. ¬†OMG, it was yummy in my tummy! ¬†If you’ve never had Brie before I urge you to give this one a try – you won’t be disappointed. Oh and be sure you have some high quality crackers with it.

Enjoy!

So I’m scrambling. ¬†With the holiday this past weekend, I thought today was Tuesday, so this will be a short little post because I have to go to my second job in about an hour. ¬†So, here ya go!

Today’s word is Bilge.

Bilge –¬†the area on the outer surface of a ship’s hull where the bottom curves to meet the vertical sides;¬†nonsense; rubbish;¬†break a hole in the bilge of (a ship).¬†

Based on the book I’m reading (see previous post) the definition that fits best is nonsense and rubbish.

Enjoy!
