I really wanted to title this post, “See Ya Summer Salad” or “Peace Out Summer Salad” or even “Sayonara Summer Salad.” But, since the whole Google machine won’t allow people to find a summer-y peach and strawberry salad based upon that title, I had to just go with the straightforward name. Booooring. I know. Sorry. I did stick to my promise of delivering a salad after those beautiful balls last week though. Soooo, you’re welcome! [Read more…]
Lay it on me people. Three hour car trip with a 7 month old and a two and a half year old. How is this going to go? What do I need to bring? DVDs? New toys? Benadryl? Lots and lots of Benadryl. Just kidding on the last one. But it all seriousness, any tips you have would be greatly appreciated. We are embarking on our annual family vacation to the Wisconsin Dells. A week of swimming, sun, adventures, laughing with family and, of course, cheese. I mean it is Wisconsin. [Read more…]
Have you ever been to one of those small plates, fancy shmancy restaurants? You know the ones I am talking about. The ones that think food is a piece of art and that 15 small bites served one plate at a time over the course of 15 hours for the mere price of $500 is what you, the diner, really wants. Well, forgive me, but I don’t think I am your kind of clientele. If I am spending $500 on something I would rather it be an entire new wardrobe or plane tickets to somewhere other than here. I will take my food cheap, ugly, and greasy. Paper plates or bowl? Yeah! Bring it on!
Also, most people I know go to those places for dinner and then end up going to a real food restaurant shortly after for a giant cheeseburger. If that were me, I would have just gotten the cheeseburger to start off with and, if I wanted to spend more money, I would spend it on a few fancy beers.
But, it is all about the experience, right? I mean that’s what people say. Once in a lifetime.
Can we talk about how annoying the phrase, “When it rains it pours” is? Like seriously! Number one, why does it have to rain in the first place, let alone pour? And yeah, yeah, yeah, I know rain allows beautiful things to grow and us to appreciate happy times. Blah, blah, blah. Is it possible to just maybe have a light drizzle as opposed to a full on torrential down pour? Maybe with a little rainbow at the end? [Read more…]
Well. It is confession time people. I know most of you have just moved on from Halloween and have maybe started planning your Thanksgiving dinner menu. I have given a teeny thought to Thanksgiving. I mean enough thought to make this warm salad and plan a giveaway for you guys. I also might bring a dessert to my in-laws dinner. My normal go-to is this cheesecake pie. But, seriously, that is all the thought about Thanksgiving I have done. [Read more…]
