Hello peeps! How's the weather in your parts? Although last week we had a cold day with a bit of snow, this weekend was absolutely glorious!! Saturday we had a record high of 66 F, and Sunday got to 65. I even went out to clean some windows on the outside and cleaned up in the back yard a bit:) It was a joy to grill for dinner and not be bundled up to do it! However, it IS January after all and expected to get pretty cold by the end of the week.
Thinking about what else but the beach and hoping to make some scheduled dates and reservations for Cape May real soon. Until then I'll enjoy reminiscing the wonderful times last year. And today I will remember all the great food we enjoyed, such as this:
One of several places we frequent while there is Hemingways. I had (again) the veggie burger along with a glass of Chardonnay while hubby had the crab cake sandwich and a beer. Yum! Cheers to the T Stands For Tuesday gang!
Oh, and on an aside as I know some of the T Gang talk about movies.... hubby and I recently saw Rocket Man about Elton John, and Judy - about Judy Garland starring Renee Zellweger. We deemed them both excellent - 5 stars out of 5!!! The acting was just fantastic! After Rocket Man all I wanted to do was to be able to give Elton John a big hug. And I admit I cried after watching Judy- just such a tragic, short life she lived. Have any of you seen either of these movies, and what did you think?
