the super deluxe bacon cheeseburgers

For dinner tonight, M&I each enjoyed a super deluxe bacon cheeseburger that consisted of: King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls with two Angus beef patties seasoned with fresh ground black pepper and sea salt, three peppered slices of aged bacon, and a slice of provolone cheese sandwiched in-between and served with two Best Maid dill pickle spears.

the five years of MoSo + breakfast for dinner

On this day in 2006, the first post to Modern Soapbox was published. I was in a similar state of mind then, but the years have gone by fast. I was younger and had more energy to be more prolific. I posted more often compared to nowadays where I’m averaging around an update or two […]

This time, we noticed tiny crabs scurrying around that dig holes in the dry sand. They were easy to catch […]

the daddy longlegs
