I have been busy finalizing plans for vacation. You can tell where my mind is by today’s shirt choice ……………
I watch alot of food network tv. I love to eat and when I have the time I love to cook.
I found this little tad bit interesting when watching a DVR episode of Iron Chef America…….
We all know they know ahead of time what possible secret ingredients they may have coming and have time to prepare dishes for each possibility. But it seems they have lists of ingredients at the very least. I’m not sure if they are that good at hiding it normally or I just never noticed before……
If your ever looking for a great breakfast diner try O’Leary’s in the Southside.
They are right next door to Mike & Tony’s Gyros at 1412 East Carson St. It’s home cookin, the menu is small but it’s good. There aren’t many tables so on the weekend I suggest going as early as possible. The place isn’t all spruced up but it’s cleaner than most restaurants that appear to be nicer. Also they only take cash but there is an ATM inside.
Here is a shot of my breakfast:
I never eat the toast. I ate the toast!-
It is one hot summer in the Burgh this year. I can’t remember the last time it was in the 80′s and 90′s much of the season and it’s still only July, but I am pleased. Personally I love the heat and the humidity. Last year the hottest week we had was while I was on vacation in the south and when I came home I was cold! I remember swimming every day as a kid, being outside, it being hot and steamy! We may have had frigid winters but I had summer to look forward to. I haven’t looked forward to a summer here in a long time. Probably part of my wanting to move south. I checked the weather today for Hilton Head Island, SC (my favorite place) and Pittsburgh. They were both 88 degrees at the time. The South weather has risen to the North and I couldn’t be happier.
So what has summer brought so far?
Church Carnivals are always fun. Many Catholic Church’s in the area do these as fundraisers through the summer. Though anymore they are more expensive, more difficult to win, and not geared towards the little ones. I like to go for the food and just to walk around and look at stuff.
So many people hate this heat. I thrive off it. It makes me happy. It defines that it is summer for me. You can have 60-70 degree weather every fall where it belongs.
Me… I will be moving South for the Winter………. Spring, Fall and Summer within the next couple years. Hubby finally said he is ready to move! Until we do I will enjoy the heat we have!
