Hi, I’m Michael…

Carolina BBQ Sauce (from Recipes )
Oct 16, 2021
This is my favorite BBQ sauce recipe. I found originally it here: https://www.nospoonnecessary.com/carolina-bbq-sauce-recipe/ The sauce is tangy from the BBQ and very nice with pork and chicken. It is not particularly sweet like a lot of commercial BBQ sauces. Ingredients 1 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar 3/4 Cup Ketchup 1/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar 1 tbsp Yellow Mustard 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce 1 tsp Hot Sauce (Preferably Texas Pete’s) 1 tsp Kosher Salt 1/2 tsp Ground Pepper 1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes optional Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan and whisk to combine.

Orlando to Chattahoochee to Toomsuba (from Blog )
May 19, 2021
Tuesday we got up early and pulled up stakes from Fort Wilderness, Disney World and headed North West. It was an easy drive to Chattahoochee which is near Tallahassee. But Chattahoochee is funner to say and write. Not much to report. The weather is good. The RV park was marginal. We had baguettes and croissants from Epcot France to go along with dinner. I enjoyed getting back to regular food. Rosemary pork chops, a bunch of steamed vegetables, green salad, fruit salad. [Read More...]

Disney Day 14 - Last day for now (from Blog )
May 17, 2021
Epcot is the park we are visiting on our last day. And happily we were able to get a spot at the French restaurant again. It seems an appropriate open and close. The weather again is unusually nice, at least in my estimation. Maybe Florida secretly has lovely weather just like California doesn’t have earthquakes and the Minnesota weathers aren’t that bad (except they are, they are horrible, don’t move there).

Disney Day 11, 12, and 13 (from Blog )
May 16, 2021
Through a combination of keeping up with work, the every day exercise program of walking 3-4 miles in a theme park, and having lunch, I didn’t keep up with daily entries. Here’s what you missed… On Day 11 (Friday) we returned to Epcot for an eating tour. The “Epcot Flower + Garden Festival” is running right now which is an excute for them to have extra nice flower installations and have kiosks selling different small plates of food. [Read More...]

Disney Day 10 - WineBar George Round 2 (from Blog )
May 13, 2021
We went to the Magic Kingdom and went on rides. It was fun. (Mickey’s Philharmagic is still a favorite of mine there. It’s an amazing piece of animated storytelling related to Donald Duck’s very sweet inner nature and how he thwarts himself over and over. At least that’s what I think it’s about.) We had decided to return to WineBar George and so left the park around 11 or so, got the boat, stopped at the RV, got in the car, drove, parked, and checked if we could get in early. [Read More...]
