Nana strikes again!

The six of us (me, son, daughter in law, grandson #1, granddaughter and grandson #2) went to Denny’s for breakfast because someone was seriously craving some sausage, eggs and pancakes.  That person shall remain nameless but I bet you can guess who 😉  We hunkered into the big semi-circle booth and placed our orders.  That day I taught grandson #1 the joy (and yumminess) of putting an over easy egg on top of some hash browns and digging in to get a bite of both – he is now converted!

But as the little one lay there quietly sleeping I was seized by the urge to photograph his sweet innocence in some mischievous ways.  One day when he is older and sees these he will laugh…or not.

What are you drinking?

These photos were taken with my mobile phone after having a nice dinner and some drinks at the Bar Harbor Beerworks on Main Street.  The duck confit tacos I had were amazing (yes I know, not your classic taco but I was enjoying them so much a table next to us asked what I was eating and proceeded to order the same) but the blueberry soda was too too sweet for me.  It was like drinking a melted Popsicle.

Now at another drinking establishment a few doors down there was this “scientific” sign which answers a question not sure that was asked 🙂  Be careful out there today if celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.  Those green drinks can get to you if you aren’t careful.

Good Eats and Making Progress

Some advances have been made with the “to do” list such as the outside decorations are all packed away now and the tree has only 1/3 of the ornaments left on it.  I finally uploaded some photos I took last week but before I could really do any editing a storm came through and we were without power for a few hours.  Fortunately I had just started the browning of some beef for chili when this happened so at least I had a tiny bit of heat and was able to make dinner in the dark (well, I did have a flashlight) as well as boil water for some hot tea to drink.  I learned how spoiled I had become from having hot water fast with the electric kettle after having to wait for water to boil in a pot on the stove top.  Slow….

So mentioning eating, last week we went to eat here and I was one happy Memphis style rib eating customer as was DH.  In spite of the name of the one sauce, it really wasn’t that hot.  A bit of a tingle but not very devilish.  But they had me at the big mason jar of freshly squeezed lemonade and the homemade BBQ potato chips.

Upstairs For…

Lunch with a view.  After not being in the mood to stand in line outside to get into a couple of other restaurants in Santa Fe, we rounded a corner and saw the sign for this place; the San Francisco Street Bar and Grill.  We found it was a good choice and after climbing the steps we were treated to some very good – and substantial – salads and margaritas.  Plus, there was this view.  Imagine sitting at your table enjoying your meal as someone across the street from you is doing the same… interesting.

Happy Thanksgiving

I’m still floating on a Nana high over my precious little turkey nugget. His big brother is a champ at holding and feeding him but his big sister – well – she hasn’t gotten the hang of it yet and would rather play on her phone.  Kids!  But while I forgot an ingredient or two for the dressing (it got doctored on after I realized my mistake and there will be no revolts) I made whole berry cranberry sauce for the first time and it turned out quite spiffy and incredibly easy if I say so myself.  No more canned for us 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving and happy Thursday to you all.


In all things give thanks….  1 Thessalonians 5:18
