Hello Everyone!!!Today is my last day here in the Quad Cities. I enjoyed staying with Lee Annette and her family at Fyre Lake. I decided to relax a bit today and do a little gardening, I went fishing and played horseshoes which I think is a ridiculous game but it was something
new. I am on…
Maybe I can come back when these veggie plants are mature. Hmmm....
WAIT! DON'T THROW YET!!!
A man and his thoughts...a man and his thoughts......

Hello Everyone!Last night I decided to make a dinner for Lee Annette and her family. I searched AllRecipes.com and found Italian Sausage Lasagna by Becky Harrington. It was fantastic! We all enjoyed it very much. The only thing I did different to make it a bit more
"Italiany" was to add…

I have been sooooo very busy here in the Quad Cities. Today Lee Annette took me to the Farmers Market in Davenport so I could see what's fresh and local and I was NOT disappointed. We found all kinds of veggies, fruits, plants and handmade goods from local
artisans. I had…
I'm in the Midwest! Found cheese curds at the Farmers Market in Davenport! YES
Corn in Iowa - LOTS of CORN
We'll need these for a recipe I'm making tomorrow.
I wanted to ride in this cart but Lee Annette said, "No, we need the exercise" :(

On my last day in Aurora, LilSnoo decided to take me to work with her so I could meet a few new people. Well, the truth is, the family dog Nacho and I hadn't been doing a very good job staying out of trouble. So off to work I went, bright and early.
I can't possibly get into any trouble here,…

I wanted to help LilSnoo with her May Allrecipes Allstars assignments. We decided that we were going to find a 'faceless' recipe so that we could take pics and post them on the site. LilSnoo handed me her phone and told me to
find something interesting. It took me a little while (the phone…

We decided to have smoked chicken and corn on the cob for Memorial Day. The night before, LilSnoo let me help her with the chicken brine. We used a mixture of water, kosher salt,…

We had a great afternoon at the Mississippi Palisades State Park. The weather was perfect and we had most of the park to ourselves.
That's the Mississippi River! Amazing! To my far left is Illinois, Iowa is behind me. ?
? I guess it's a tradition to carve your name here - there are thousands…

Whew, it's been a busy week! Tonight I will gather my things up and get ready to head to my next host; I'm super excited and really hope I get there before Memorial Day so I don't get stuck in a UPS hub all weekend! I've been helping CookinBug plan their
annual Memorial Day weekend cookout...…

I arrived safe and sound late last week here in Illinois. My host, CookinBug, tells me that I am so lucky to have my visit come at a time when the weather is absolutely lovely. Personally, I thought Saturday was a little
too warm! I suppose you'd be overheating too if you were wearing a full…
