Hello Everyone! How is the weather by you? Here in Wisconsin it’s hot and humid. I don’t mind the hot, it’s the humid I could do away with. I will be honest, I would rather have the heat than the cold weather in winter.
I treated myself yesterday with a Spa Pedicure and let me tell you, it was fabulous! Hot towels are wrapped around your calves and they use hot stones to massage the feet and calves. The massage chair practically puts me to sleep. I picked out a hot pink nail polish to make the pedicure complete. I don’t often get a pedicure so it’s really a treat when I do!
The husband, my daughter Mackenzie and I went out to dinner last night. I enjoyed the usual Friday Fish Fry with hand breaded cod and a homemade tartar sauce. Bill had a Ribeye sandwich and Mackenzie had Blackened Tuna. Everything was equally delicious. While we were waiting I was scanning the drink menu and they had Ice Cream Drinks; Pink Cadillac, Grasshopper and White Dove to name a few. I decided I need to recreate some of these drinks for the blog, so stay tuned.

I often get asked what spices I keep on hand, here is a post I did on Stocking Your Spice Rack:
One of the places I get the majority of my spices at is The Spice Crate. It’s a local store that carries a large assortment of spices that you can sniff and get a better idea of the flavor it will add. The Spice Crate also carries coffees, teas, chocolates, sprinkles/sugars and so much more. You can order on-line, so for those of you not in the Fond du Lac area, you still can enjoy everything they offer.
