If you are ever around the Cincinnati area and want a different breakfast experience, give Sugar ‘n Spice a try!
They have been delighting customers since 1941 with the whimsical side of human nature (is the cook kicking that pan and egg or is the egg fighting back?), but also delightful wispy thin pancakes and truly fluffy omelettes!
To end you meal, you (or the kids with you) can choose a rubber ducky as a keepsake.
Indianapolis has a hidden gem on the West side called Eagle Creek Park. Today we drove through during the rain and bada bing, three of these deer stood near the park road, giving us a wonderful photo shoot. And the whole time I was wondering who was really studying who.
They were obviously comfortable and unconcerned. I, on the other hand, was shaking with excitement and had a hard time getting a steady shot.
There is a new cafe in the small Indiana town of Hagerstown. It is worth the trip if you enjoy local fare and learning about Indiana heritage.
The Sidewalk Cafe – located in an historic building and open 11-3 daily, 7 days a week.
Along with the cafe, there is a lovely Christmas store attached called Every Day is Christmas. You can also step across the street to the Museum (open 1-6pm Thurs./Fri./Sat.).
Go out and explore the small towns in Indiana – they can hide some wonderful treasures!
Feel free to visit my food blog where I wrote more about the cafe food.
We went for a sweet ride in the convertible this weekend (you know, that warm day in between snowstorms) and we stumbled upon the second year of The Blackhawk Manor Festival – our first ever Renaissance Faire -near French Lick, Indiana.
It was a combination of entertainment and education. The Society for Creative Anachronism put on a demonstration of a contest as seen in these photos, and then answered our questions afterwards.
The Sleeping Bear Retreat grounds were absolutely beautiful and the Faire, while small, was enjoyable.
And Robert gave one of my friends a photo op. What could be better than that?
