Hey all, May 2018 bring more kindness and empathy. This is the last picture I took for 2017. What will the new year bring? Stay curious. Funny that today is National Bacon Day. I ate bacon 2X today, so good.

How Far Does a Soccer Ref Run During a Tournament Day?

I’m 18 months into reffing youth soccer matches here in Bucks County, PA. I’ve enjoyed the continual process of learning about the Laws of the Game in match situations. The game is so different from U8 level up through U16 (my experience so far) in terms of skill, speed and yes, aggression! One question I am asked…

Soft Shell Crab Season

84 degrees, soft breeze, leaves almost full on trees and deer romping through the woods.  It’s about time to have dinner outside. Soft shell crab po boy with scratch ceasar dressing for the greens and tomato on fresh baguette from The Bread Box and Bakery in Perkasie PA.  Duckhorn Chardonnay is a nice compliment to the casual…

2015 Golf Stats Review

I never thought I’d get almost 1/4 of my 2015 rounds played in December (3)!   13 total rounds, 234 holes played. I walked 9 of those for an estimated total of 144,000 steps, or about 63 miles, give or take.     Not a ton of time for practice, but I did ocassionally get in…

Seared and Blackened Tuna and Salmon

The fish was excellent. The pomegranate/orange salsa was even better. Standout shuffle track for prepping was Death Cab for Cutie’s “I Will Follow You into the Dark”, I encourage you to check this out. Beautiful song, beautiful playing. I have a confession to make. I’ve posted images and written about making sushi at home for…

Ryan Adams Cover of “1989”

I have to say that I’ve been listening to this Ryan Adams redo of 1989 since it dropped back in September. For as much as his renditions of these songs bum me out, I find them oddly beautiful.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup + Caprese Pannini

Fall brings soup, which brings sandwiches. Perfect for a crisp day. Two weeks ago, I had a fire in the kitchen wood burner.   Soup music was an odd mix of Art Blakey and Blake Babies…. What’s your “go to” soup and sandwich?

Grilled Baby Lamb Chops (again) with Kitchen Fire

No, no disasters, only the first fall evening I made a fire in the kitchen wood burner. Nothing like wine, cheese, food and kids on a Saturday night.     I’m pretty certain I’ve found my 5th menu item for my mythical farm to table bistro in my mind. It’s not often I make the almost…

Shape, Texture, Taste, Sound – You Won’t Believe #4

Look to your right. Run your hand along what’s there – don’t be out of control with this idea, I’m by myself on a couch! I realize some of you may be on a bus or in an office or an airplane. Be appropriate and don’t freak out anybody, ok?  I love to touch things,…

Grilled fruit? Yes please

Amazing what you can do in 30 minutes with a little thought. Grilled white peaches and mango with citrus shrimp and scallops, baby spinach and mixed greens and a fresh rosemary roll sets a nice tone for the rest of the day.  Sweet, sour and yummy. The crumbled honey goat cheese with the greens wrapped…
