Back to reality...

So we have finally returned from our road trip and already I wish I was back out there. You don't realize it until you are on the road what a beautiful country we live in. OK so Illinois and Indiana were some what of a bore, but Pennsylvania and New York were gorgeous. As we drove to Cooperstown down these winding roads and hilly pastures, I decided that this was a place that I wanted to spend more time in. Unfortunately we only had the afternoon so we had to make the best of it. We walked along the beautiful main street of Cooperstown of course named Main St and stopped along the way at several shops and then went to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Which if you haven't been is a must visit, especially if you are a baseball fan like me and the hubby.

I won't bore you with the details but I will tell you that we stopped down the street at the Doubleday Cafe.. Abner Doubleday was thought to have invented baseball, so there is a lot named after him in town. The restaurant was very casual and served mostly sandwiches on the suggestion of our waitress we went with the Philly Cheese steak sandwich. It was served with sauteed onions and peppers and lots of cheese just the way I like it. It was yummy!!
But I must say the best part of our meal was the desert, pumpkin bread pudding with a bourbon sauce. Can I just say that it just went on my top 10 desert list!!

So now I am on the hunt for a recipe for this amazing dish. Stay tuned for this and some of my Rosh Hashanah recipes soon!!
