Eating Out and Eating In ~ Recipe included

We have enjoyed some great meals in Rochester. Our favorite was lunch on Friday.
We ate in the restaurant at the Double Tree Hotel downtown.
Amy ordered the Fish Taco with Black Bean Soup...
The service was wonderful...
I ordered the Crab Cake Slider and Lobster Bisque...
Delicious!!

We prepared meals at home too...
This is one of Amy's specialties.

Dear blog friend,
I am trying to put together a bloggers board.
This board would contain the name of the blog, the first name of the author ( last name, if you allow ) and birthday-- month and day only.
Once I get this put together, I will email to all participants.
If you know of others who would like to be listed, please give them my email address so I can add them.
I just think it would be handy to know when our friends birthdays are so we can send them our best wishes.
Those of you who have not yet sent me your address, please do. These will not be part of the blog board, but for my own personal address book. I like to send cards now and then.
