I decided to start a blog today. As with all things it is an experiment of sorts. I want to write about such things as art, eco-friendly living and dogs. Simple enough -or it may seem.
So to begin I would like to start with the current issue of Ready Made magazine, I am so excited about making their recipe for Coffee Can Lemongrass Vanilla ice-cream, can I tell you! How genius is this magazine people?! Love me some Ready Made : ) When I make it I will tell you all about it. If you make it first, send me some. What else, oh so I am totally into Etsy (www.etsy.com check it out) and stumbled across the coolest listing today:


His name is Maxwell and is made by reclaim2fame on Etsy. This funky little guy is from their Tin Type Robot collection and is going for a cool $111.oo : I want it. But as it is said, "want in one hand and &6$# in the other, see what fills up first", ha!

However, it is up for sale if you have the hankering.


So this past weekend my husband and I found our way to the most interesting breakfast spot ever. It is in Kenosha, Wisconsin and it is called Franks Diner, it was featured on the Food Networks Drive-Ins, Diners and Dives. They serve up organic eggs and free range bacon. We both ordered the Chocolate Chip Pancakes and they were HUGE. I can normally eat some pancakes but I only got through half of one, one folks! So delicious. It is in a old train car and the staff yells at you in that funny yelling way that makes it part of the experience. Our waitress was full of tattoos and 'tude and I loved it. This is a picture of the heavenly griddle, however we will go back and I will get a picture of the pancake monstrosity.

I hope to hear from you, dear reader, yes you.... until next blog, over and out good buddy ;)
