What is it about us humans and directions? For so many, in the old days without GPS, we’d drive around trying to find a place. It was almost an act of God to pull over and ask someone how to get to wherever we were going. Same thing when we buy something new. We take… Continue reading Following Directions
Food Truck and Frank’s
With getting ready for the DC trip and then the actual travel, I didn’t do any cooking or baking. I do have everything ready for this next week. Well, really the recipes are the left overs from what I had chosen for this past week I didn’t get to do. When we were riding in… Continue reading Food Truck and Frank’s
I’ve been in Washington, D.C. the past few days for work. There wasn’t a lot of time to see the town, but found a little time yesterday to take a quick walk. My main goal was to see the famous cherry blossoms as I’ve not been in D.C. at the right time of year to… Continue reading Washington Walkabout
Anyone Holding Their Breath?
If anyone out there is holding their breath right now, you should probably let it go as we’ve been down this road before. What road you might be asking? It’s the Trump road. The road the press and other talking heads take us down every once in a while to get us to click on… Continue reading Anyone Holding Their Breath?
It was a much slower week than anticipated. I had several recipes picked out to give a try, including a roast chicken and vegetables. Next week will be a little slow as well due to some work travel to DC. Hopefully I’ll be able to dine at a great restaurant while there. Most of you… Continue reading Slow Week
Was at the theater tonight with the hubby and a good friend! Life was good for a few hours.
Spaghetti Squash Gratin
Two dishes didn’t make it into the photo album this week. I hate when I’ve finished the meal and realize no picture was taken. Maybe I’ll get better at remembering at some point. Roasted chicken thighs with skillet spaghetti gratin sauce as our family Sunday dinner. Several of us commented on the gratin. In the… Continue reading Spaghetti Squash Gratin
Movies have always been a love of mine. From the summer drive-in double headers to the afternoons seeing two or three in row, the big screen has called to me. For past few years, aside from the Covid pause, I’ve tried to see all of the Oscar nominated films thanks to Regal Theaters’ Best Picture… Continue reading Academy Countdown
It Started with Soup
Even though winter seems to be over and the weather this past Sunday was beautiful, I was still in the mood for some soup. There was one oddball vegetable, or maybe officially a gourd, as one of the ingredients—acorn squash. This was only the second time I’ve ever had this type of squash. The first… Continue reading It Started with Soup
Dinner for One
This evening I decided I wanted to treat myself to dinner. The hardest decision was where to take myself. When going out with someone you can bandy about where to go based on who’s craving something or another. By yourself, it should be easier, but it took me a minute to decide. I ended up… Continue reading Dinner for One
