BrewFest 2013

On Saturday I went to a fun little beer tasting event and it was a blast! There were so many choices from home brewed beer to the more mainstream beer companies with fun new flavors to German beer and my very favorites were all the micro brews from around the surrounding areas. Don't like beer? They had an entire area of wine tasting too and a little bourbon section as well! Lots of food to taste and a BBQ competition in the parking lot. The event was held at the historic Bosse Field here in Evansville, IN, built in 1915 it packs a lot of charm! The weather was another highlight of the evening, 70s and no humidity! O yeah and the proceeds went to a local organization:) Basically it was a perfect night.
My favorites from the night:
Food: J.Gumbo- Ratatouille
Beer: Triton Fieldhouse Wheat
Place to sit: The Dugout
Here is a peak into our night....

and done.

Such an awesome time! Can't wait for next year!

S'mores Bites

Who doesn't like s'mores? I'm sure there's someone right now thinking, well I don't:) If you are part of the s'mores loving community this simple little recipe will make you smile! So let's get started...
You will need:
-Box of graham crackers
-Bag of marshmallows
-Bag of your personal fav bite size chocolate candy (we used Hershey kisses and mini Reese's cups)

Preheat oven to 300
Place graham crackers and marshmallows on a cookie sheet
Bake until marshmallows look like they are starting to melt (took ours about 8min)
Take out and top with candy, pop back in the oven for a few minutes

While these aren't a healthy snack they are a nice healthy option to a regular s'more! I look forward to making these this fall!
Happy Baking!
Love, T

4th of July Fun!

Here I am slacking on my posts again:/ Better late than never, right?
The weekend after the Fourth of July is one of my favorite weekends of the year because its always filled with patriotic spirit, family, fireworks, great food and lots of fun! Pat and Bobby are always such great hosts! Every year it kinda varies on the number of people who are able to make it, this year it was a slightly smaller group than last year but we had lots and lots of fun! The weather was absolutely perfect! A little too cool, yes too cool, for their new pool (of course we still swam) but I can't complain considering I was sweating my booty off previous years! I hope your July has been as lovely as mine so far! Here are peaks into our America inspired weekend!


Yes we shoot Roman candles at the flying lanterns, grandma was so close!

Happy Belated 4th of July everyone!
Love, T
