I have been sick for the last several days with another allergy cold combination. I was out of town for a few days and on my way home I got that burning-itching sensation you get in your nose before you are about to sick. Twenty-four hours later I am surrounded by kleenex boxes, smothered in vix vapor rub ,eye glasses on, eating raw honey by the spoonfuls, while lookin’ like death ran over twice. Plus running after my toddler Sophia.

Gettysburg, Pa

When my in-laws Lucy and Ray were in Pittsburgh visiting a little over a week ago, we decided to do a day trip to Gettysburg. I have never been to Gettysburg, but have always wanted to visit. It was an absolutely beautiful day, except it was so terribly windy which made it even more cold than what it should have been. If I remember correctly the winds were up to 20mph. I mean it was windy, thank goodness you have the option of driving to the different areas. You also had the option of horse back riding which I know I would not be able to walk for days, or take their tour bus. Neither of those are an option with a toddler. We all knew that Gettysburg was going to be a big place, but I did not realize how big it was if memory serves me right I believe it is about 20 miles around. Then I thought about the 50,000 men that died in 4 days and 20 miles around did not seem so big.

I have a good amount of photos below that I would like to share. This is going to be the longest post I have posted yet, but I believe the men that died and the men that returned home deserve this. I hope you enjoy them.

ZA Nights..

TGIF. My days are usually very hectic, Sophia and I are always on the run. Always. She is definitely my partner in crime. By the time Friday finally rolls around all I can think about is taking the easy way out with…..dinner. Not that I do not enjoy cooking and coming up with different recipes to share, but I like to designate Fridays to Pizza night or ZA if you are a scrabble player. Next time you have odd letters and you happen to have a “Z,” in the mix, ย make ZA, it is an easy eleven points unless your get happen to get lucky enough triple word score or a double letter. ZA works every time.

Mini Quiches & a Ninja

Rain. I can not express how much I feel like Pittsburgh has gotten over the last couple of days. Cold. I can not express how cold it has been in Pittsburgh recently. Have I mentioned it is supposed to be Spring. With it being cold and rainy that last couple of days having and very active toddler couped up in the house is not exactly ideal, especially since Sophia is a nature girl and we just got over winter. So, I decided to take her to a local Jump n’ Bounce, which she loves! And in the end we both end of having a blast.

Yummy Corn Casserole!! I was first introduced to this recipe when Adrian and I were living down in North Carolina three years ago. It was the first time I have ever had it..and loved it! It is a side dish that goes well with chicken or any kind of grilled meat. Adrians mom Ms. Lucy gave me this recipe so I figured I would bring a southern side dish to the table one night.ย And the best part is, it is super easy to make!
