I have seen the hoopla of what some folks go though to make their ice coffee. I will hand it to them and give credit where it is due. I’m going to be honest, I really don’t understand all the fuss of making ice coffee the way some folks do.

That’s usually the answer I … Continue reading Hillbilly..Pizza..Cowboy..What Kind of Lasagna?!?!?!?
For those or I should say for all patriotic Americans….Happy Fourth of July! Our city had their fireworks last night and for TW and I we are just going to celebrate today quietly. Well, on one exception. We were invited to attend one of my co-worker’s 4th/daughter’s birthday party. Her birthday girl turns ten today. It seems like ages since I had a ten year … Continue reading The Explosive 4th
It is hard to believe that TW and I have been in our new place for a month now and the dust of the moving hype is finally starting to settle. We both agreed the next time we move it will be a slow gradual move if we can help it. I don’t know about any of you but I haven’t met a person yet … Continue reading Settling In

She did it! My daughter made it with flying colors through her first year of college. And I couldn’t be more proud of her! My heart swells with joy and sadness at the same time for her because she grew up a lot this year. Gone now is my high schooler who needed me a lot, however, now she is truly my college student.

Over the weekend my mom and I went to visit my daughter for her last hurrah of her first year of college. She only had one more final remaining for this week so a nice change in the studying routine was needed. No hold on…that’s a bunch of malarkey.

Among the brick streets, the park and quaint homes in the very ethnic founded neighborhood of German Village we discover a French bakery via recommendation. We also by recommendation were advised to experience the sausage haus. Growing up with a German heritage it is no surprise that the majority of my childhood dinners were German based. Yep, sauerkraut and sausages were a staple in our … Continue reading A Little Sausage Haus in Columbus
