Spiedie Chicken


What is Spiedie Sauce? This is Spiedie Sauce. A Spiedie is a sandwich that is popular in the Binghamton, New York area. It has a Mediterranean/Greek flavor to it. It is meat marinated in a sauce of oil, vinegar, Italian spices, and mint. The ingredients vary slightly but are pretty similar. I bought a few…

Beefy Burrito Casserole


Simple is the keyword right now. My family loves burritos but it is just not something I think of making on a regular basis. I don’t know why because they are so easy to make. Add some lettuce, tomatoes, onions, sour cream and guacamole and I feel like I don’t even need to add a…

White Barbecue Chicken Sandwich


All this traveling has really thrown me off my menu planning. I had to sit down last night with my calendar and a grocery list. We went through the pantry in the basement to see where we were with our groceries. We have been trying to eat as much as possible out of the pantry…

Super Simple Parmesan Fish


We finally arrived home yesterday. It certainly has been a crazy month! First our trip to Walt Disney World then home for four days and then to visit my parents in North Carolina. We arrived home for about 20 minutes and then I had to drop her off at work. I needed to get a…

Irish Dance Camp Competition


Hi All! If you have followed me for any length of time you know my daughter is crazy for Irish dance! My daughter is in a competition to win an Irish dance camp scholarship. This is like her dream camp. The scholarship would pay the almost $1,000 tuition for the week long camp in New…

Standing on the Edge of the Sandwich Generation


I don’t talk much about my family (other than my immediate family). My daughter was born when I was a bit older so I am getting to be of the age where I still have my children at home and parents who are aging and will be in need of some “assistance.” So I am…

Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner – 1900 Park Fare

Cinderella and Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine (Cinderella’s step-mother), Anastasia and Drizella (Cinderella’s step-sisters) are normally in attendance. ¬†On this night Drizella was…

Tomorrowland Terrace


My daughter wearing one of the 12 pair of Mickey ears she made for our trip. Even on vacation I tell our story through food. Each day we had at least one “special” meal. Whether it was something simple in a counter service restaurant like Tomorrowland Terrace, which is generally not open during the time…

Garden Grill (Breakfast)


If you are planning a meal while visiting Disney World and looking for great character interaction this was one of our favorites on this trip. Though we are NOT breakfast eaters and generally do not enjoy breakfast foods I decided to book us a breakfast at the Garden Grill to get us up and moving…

ABC Commissary


We recently returned from our Walt Disney World vacation. We add the regular dining plan to our trip. This gives us 1 counter service meal, 1 table service meal, and 2 snacks each day per person. It also gives us a refillable mug to use at the resort. Disney is continually tweaking their meal plans….

Man Plans, God Laughs


I had every intention of posting each and every day while on vacation. Obviously, that did not happen. It was a wonderful vacation with lots of fun things and a few low points (everyone else got sick at some point and had to sit out a day or two of the parks). It was all…
