Dave taking MORE pictures!

 

#1 Things To Do This Week

Take Pictures

 

I know it's not the prettiest time of the year and that is exactly why you should consider spending time in Galena taking pictures.  

You will be challenged to find just the right shot

Being overcast most of the time you will have perfect lighting

You will get a lot of exercise walking around

So, call to make you reservation today for this week, mention "Photography" and receive 10% off!

#2 Try at Shake and Burger at Durty Gurts Restaurant

#3 Pizza for Dinner at Procento's Pizza - uhm excellente

#4 Walk the soggy 3 mile walking path - Riverviews at one point on the path

#5 Shop - anywhere, just shop!

#6 Coffee - when you are tired from all the shopping - enjoy the Coffee Shop

We haven't had any snow lately so we have officially discontinued our special classes 

"Snow Shoveling 101, 201 and 301"

Sorry, but maybe you can get in on it next year!

The good news is we are now taking reservations for our next series, back by popular demand

"Window Washing 101 through 501"

Just Kidding You Know!:)

 

 

Recipe Highlight

Orange French Toast

It's so simple

 

Scramble up a few eggs

Add some milk to loosen it up

1/4 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp Orange Rind

1/2 cup Orange Flavored Liquor or Orange Juice

 

Mix all that up, dip some Texas toast in there and put it on the griddle!

 

 

 

Next Week I Begin My New Series

"What Makes Me Happy"

 

It should be fun and perhaps a few suggestions will stand out to you!
