Back from Vacation...

I am finally back from vacation and able to post, I was silly in thinking that there would be internet access down at the beach, but I did. We spent a great week down in Cape Cod, Ma at the beach with family and had a great time. It has been a family tradition to go there for the past 26 years with my parents. This year was first year that just the siblings went. We did some chillin and grillin and also some eating out, gotta love the clam shacks every 1/4 mile. But no internet access so I will have to catch up on my cooking this week and post some recipes.

While we were there Senator Edward Kennedy died, not far from where we vacation. My husband and I decided to go to the Kennedy Museum in Hyannis to pay our respects. I didn't think his death would affect me as much as it did, but being from Massachusetts almost my whole life, and Teddy being the only Kennedy I have known, I am too young for JFK or RFK to have an effect on me. On our way home this weekend, all along the highway were signs and people on the sides of the roads trying to get a glimpse of him as he traveled from Cape Cod to Boston and then on to his final resting place Arlington National Cemetery. It was a rough weekend in terms of weather, we were hit with the tail end of Tropical Storm Danny, but that did not deter people form lining the streets yesterday it was amazing!! He was a great asset to Massachusetts and will be greatly missed.

I am actually off to a Fantasy Football Draft so no recipe but I promise one soon.

Welcome to the foodie blog roll. I have been enjoying reading your recipes and blog this afternoon. We are heading to the Jersey Beach in about a week and looking forward to hitting some of the Irish Pubs and Restaraunts.
