What's for dinner? fast food -vs- home made


I love a good cheese burger
we have a couple great burger places in Mount Pleasant
*The Windjammer*
(no fast food though**the boyfriend and I don't partake)
well....except for the very rare chick fil a

this info graphic
shows the price difference
 between home cooked and fast food
and the health difference

I think it's very interesting
seeing what $30.00 buys you at McDonalds
and knowing what $30.00 buys you at the Grocery Store
even if you arn't a certified chef
an affordable home made meal is within reach

wanderlust: food and travel

When I get a taste of Wanderlust
most often
I think of trying exotic foods 
drinking new wines and liquors
I dream of curries
and the crazy packaging of new snacks
trying new foods is always my favorite part of traveling 

this video 
is a perfect taste 
of my favorite part of traveling

From the Kitchen: What I've been Cooking

The Boyfriends Favorite
the cheese plate
with fresh baked bread
and tiny champagne grapes
Crock Pot Macaroni & Cheese
add Peas, Pancetta and super sharp cheddar
it's perfect

Pioneer Woman's Steakhouse pizza
used some of  my own flavors
but she is my inspiration
I added arugula, mushrooms,  and used vidalia onions
*sweet southern awesomeness*

Pork Carnitas  over Mexican Beer and Chorizo risotto
served with a side of roasted corn smothered in cojita cheese
valentina hot sauce and mayo

I pledged to always read the book before seeing the movie
*I normally do anyway*
But this web site is going to be sending out monthly newsletters
letting you know what books are going to be movies
so you can get a jump start on your reading list!

Scenes from the Isle of Palms

Labor day has already come and gone
*I still can't believe what the calendar tells me*
I was lucky enough
to hit up the beach
with my parents

~it's still nice and hot enough to go the the islands a little while longer~

poem love: Ogden Nash

Mona and Lucy

fossils | ogden nash

at midnight in the museum hall,
the fossils gathered for a ball,
there were no drums or saxophones,
but just the clatter of their bones,
rolling, rattling carefree circus,
of mammoth polkas and mazurkas,
pterodactyls and brontosauruses
sang ghostly prehistoric choruses,
amid the mastodonic wassail
i caught the eye of one small fossil,
“cheer up sad world,” he said and winked,
“it’s kind of fun to be extinct

found on
in the lovely little Sautter Pictures shop

Life starts all over again, when it gets crisp in the fall- The Great Gatsby


I miss sweaters
I found this beauty on Pinterest (shocker)
I *love* the heart elbow patches
thinking about hitting up the thrift store
 breaking out a needle and thread
just so that I am prepared
for when the air gets a little crisper

those who wander may not be lost

I am bitten by a travel bug
sometimes i just want to jump in the car and explore
*i tend to find that this is a trend among only children*
we can be solitary creatures

~wouldn't it be great to have a little camper~
to enjoy this wonderful country

Everyday Holidays


My cousin Charley Ann was here this weekend
-with some friends-
the passing hurricane left us with beautiful weather
and we had fun on the beach
and in their super cute log cabin at the KOA
