Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Saturday was St. Patrick’s Day and as a good American-Irish woman I went out for Mexican Food.  Nothing was boiled, lol.

I started with a Veggie Fajita Platter.  See the Green…there was my tribute to St. Paddy!  Broccoli, guacamole and spinach.  Boom!

Of course I got the Mexican Fried Ice Cream!!!  It’s was really only to complete the whole Mexican Food experience!

We were going to craft fairs in the area and there was one at the Historic Moland House.

It was a great afternoon.  The sky was blue and the sun was shining!

I even got some cashew brittle.  Was a great day to be out and about!


Super Bowl Bound

On Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles crushed the Vikings and are now headed to the Super Bowl!!!

I was so happy I wore my Eagles Jersey to work on Monday!

It’s going to feel like an eternity until February 4th!  Go Birds!!!


Merry Christmas…in July

We decided to celebrate Christmas in July this year.

We went to Byers Choice and the National Christmas Center.

Byers Choice had lots of places to take photos beyond the exhibits.  This was a dress up area with costumes and a Christmas background to take pictures in your dress up 🙂

It was so hot that Byers Choice had the local fire department come out with the hose to cool the kiddies down.

It was such a fun time.  I got to see so many of my favorite beings (elves) and relive a little bit of my childhood 🙂


FOS Project: John & Molly’s

This weekend we were took time to visit Air Victory Museum.  It was fun.  it’s a small Museum in Lumberton, NJ.  Totally worth the visit.

After our visit I used Trip Advisor to find a good place to have lunch.  John and Molly’s was rate #1 for the area.



It didn’t disappoint.  The portions were huge.  The food was good and best of all they had French Onion Soup on the menu.

This FOS was super tasty.  I’m always excited when I see a place has prime rib on the menu because they tend to have the best FOS.  This soup was super awesome!  I was prepared to move it to the #1 FOS I’ve ever had.  I now think it’s tied for # with the Rio Station in Wildwood, NJ.

Check out John & Molly’s for some tasty foods!

Memorial Day – Remembering

Memorial Day isn’t really a day about parades and picnics.  It’s about remembering those service persons who fought for the idea of freedom and paid the ultimate sacrifice.  People like SSG Larry S. Pierce.

SSG Pierce was awarded the CMH.  He was only 24 when he lost his life to protect his fellow soldiers.  Thank you SSG Pierce and his family.  America owes you a debt of gratitude.

In my town the local Post sponsors a parade, picnic and Memorial which includes reading the list of fallen from Our Town.  Remembering our heroes.

I’m proud of Our Town.

French Onion Soup Project – Volume #6

We went to a local place over the weekend for some tasty treats.  MaGerk’s is a pub like atmosphere with Draft beers but also offers a Seafood Steampot.  I highly recommend the Cheese Steak Nachos!

French Onion Soup was on the menu so of course I must take the challenge and get it.  It was very good.

It wasn’t too salty and the cheese was perfect.  I’m not a fan of Sharp Provolone cheese on my FOS and was very happy this fair didn’t have any of that.  The cheese was perfectly melted and the bread in the broth was just the right amount.  There is nothing worse than breaking through the cheese to find one wet piece of bread and no broth.  Kudos Chef at MaGerk’s.  You’ve done a fine job!

On the FOSP meter I give it a solid 4+’s

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – Cleveland Trip Part II

On our whirlwind trip to Cleveland, Ohio we hit as many of the major events as possible.  We did the whole drive around the city.  This included University Circle where a lot of the Museums are located.  Very neat!


The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a must if you are doing the Tourist Thing.  The building is unique and sits on the bank of Lake Erie.  The views are stunning.  It also is filled with tons of Music History!


I can’t say why I was moved by seeing Michael Jackson’s glove but it happened.  I guess growing up with Michael in the 70’s and 80’s left and impression on me.


So many cool things to take your picture with that I took like 300 pictures, lol.


A wealth of Rock and Roll history everywhere you turn.  There are movies and music kiosks to make the trip more interactive.  While we were there Bands made up of teenagers were playing in the lobby as part of the School of Rock.  It is totally worth the trip.  The entrance price is a little steep but there will be hours of entertainment waiting for you inside!
