Pretty simple Cesar salad. Got the idea from a gastropub I frequent. Just, cut the head of romaine in half and grill flat side until you can see the grill marks. Flip and grill for another minute. Plate and drizzle with Cesar dressing. Added craisins, blue cheese crumbles, and bacon crumbles. The salty bacon enhances the sweet/tart cranberries, with a bit of an extra kick from the blue cheese. Simple and easy to make.
As for an update, the archives are fixed, but it broke all of the permalinks in the process. If there were any articles in the past with a link on social media, they have all broken. If interested in past stories, I suggest going through the archives and reading the headlines. All of the Magical Dining reviews are in. If interested, I would check under the Food Blog heading.
I have been working on the final stages of the post roof install and doing some internal repairs that have delayed a few updates. The last of the roof issues have been taken care of and I can finally move on with my life. Continue reading “Quick Update. . .”
I cleaned up some of the past posts. I also added a “Continue reading” link to almost all of the post so reading from the home page will not be as difficult going through all of the past posts in reverse order just to get to a post. Also, there was a request for another FAQ to be added. I did so. Two, in fact. Note, there is a menu on top and all of the items work. Lastly, there was a poem added earlier today. First one I wrote in a while. I think I will post the old ones in the future and give the new ones more time to be created. Fiction in the future.
The pups and I had a long day. We started with our pre-7 a.m. 3-mile walk, and by the time it was over, I spent an hour getting them fed and settled. I had planned on going on a trip with them this week, specifically today, but saw that the places I wanted to go were 2.5 hours at the closest and over four on the middle end. Because it was going to rain all day today, I will try tomorrow. Continue reading “Quick Update”
I have acquired my medical bills, but still, do not know what I had. I have test results and nothing seems out of the norm. I will write the details of the experience at a later date. That being said, I’m in the middle of the rest of the NO LA trip and got distracted by editing all my previous posts for grammar and spelling errors. It is interesting to note, I have run these posts through two different systems and there were conflicts as one saw no issues and the other did. They also differed by one trying to correct issues I corrected with the other system and the new system says it is an issue. That being the case, as long as I am not reading and just posting, don’t expect perfection. I will say the post prior to this one had the least issues It was also the only one that I was able to do without a dog interrupting me mid-process.
I hope to have another post tomorrow and start catching up on the travel stories and then move on from there. Nash has been adopted so I feel like I can tell his stories now. I have a few more Belle stories (one is already written, just not posted). Lily has a few she wants everyone to know.
I have plans to travel again and actually make this trip, but it will be in the future. I have an idea of what I need to do next and might put it here, or not. We will see.
I will get back to catching up, but I had a medical emergency and returned home. Due to medical billing practices, I have no idea what my costs will be so I will not know how long it will be until I can travel again if the costs out weight my coffer. I also need to do a followup with a doctor in over a week, so at the very least, I will not be traveling until after that. I am alive but in great pain. Hopefully, that will pass soon because walking and sitting, my two most common tasks, are quite painful at the moment. My New Orleans adventures are the next things I will be writing about and posting, but I owe some people I met reviews on a few travel sites first.
On the bright side, Lily was super happy to be back and run in her yard. I also discovered my foster was adopted yesterday so his story will now be possible to tell.
So, after getting the dogs situated and trying to get back into my pattern the way I intended, I actually got back into my pattern the way Nash and Lily wanted it. The two of them were up to their antics and I was drained of most of my energy over the week. I was able to write a bit over for two days. Continue reading “A Weak at Home”
Plan on getting Key West Day 4 (Part II) up either tonight to tomorrow. Then will start the Alaska Saga. Lily is with me and there will be pictures. It has been mentioned the ones posted so far are too small. I will need more space to put larger images up and possible video. Get me more readers and it will be worth it. Spread the word if you like what you are reading. If you don’t, sorry, the fiction will follow the trip stories.
If you didn’t get it by the title, I’m writing this from NO LA. I have already been in four states in the last day. Gonna be here until Friday, 03/23/2018. Not sure where our next stop will be, but I intend on getting in a ghost tour while I’m here.
The crap internet at my location is not going to improve and will not until I get home, if I’m lucky, as that was flaking just before I left. My phone internet, which I have been using as a hot spot to do real posts, started acting up real bad today, as well. I sent two posts on Facebook and they did not go through. I thought it was just Facebook, but discovered a pict I sent someone uploaded an hour after I sent it. The message would have made little sense to me if I received it that way. All of this said, my posts about days three and four will be a bit delayed. Please check back, as they will be posted as soon as I have a decent internet connection again. FYI, I just got a picture of Lily as a puppy. It might be up here soon. Stay tuned.
