A budget for any vacation/holiday is a personal topic. It’s scary to allow others to see how we chose to spend our money. We risk judgment and ridicule. However, the benefits of sharing go back to the theme of all my blogs which is to share all parts of our Camino experiences despite what others […]

In the midst of the COVID virus pandemic, we purchased a 21-pound turkey for two and it’s a good thing we love turkey leftovers!

Recipe of the Week – Creamy Cheese Soup

By on November 12, 2018

We love soup and we also try to eat healthy meals as often as possible.  Any opportunity to lighten up a favorite meal and still feel like we’re having a “cheat” meal is appreciated. This potato soup is bulked up with some flavorful vegetables and lightened up by using mostly broth instead of cream. Use […]

Recipe of the Week – Taco Rice Salad

By on July 30, 2018

Taco Rice Salad has all the favor of tacos or nachos without the calories of chips or wraps. We enjoy it as a quick dinner or even leftover for lunch. It reminds us a little of the popular bowls at places like Hothead or Chipotle. Start out mincing some garlic and tossing it a skillet […]

Rainy Day = Wine & Cheese Tastings

By on June 28, 2018

Sometimes we love to hike in the rain, other times we love to just hang out indoors, but most of the time we are off finding some local fun. When you are in the Finger Lakes region the best thing to do when it’s raining is find a few wineries. This is our third vacation […]
