Good afternoon, friends. I took a break from PPAC and WQW this week and next due to spotty time to post and equally spotty internet. So join me for a cup of coffee at Natalie’s Weekend Cofffee Share while I have a few minutes to share some of my cell pics from Nevada City.
This would be a perfect time to recap April, but I’ll leave that until I get back home. My feline pal, Nutter Butter loves to help me with weighty posts like that. So enjoy a few photo challenges with your cuppa.
The weather was perfect yesterday, sunny skies, about 75 degrees with a light breeze. It was ideal for eating a cup of ice cream at one of the outside tables. In order to walk off the 2,500-calorie brunch at the hotel, Vince and I took off to grab some steps and pictures after slurping down the last of the bowl of salted caramel and chocolate ice cream.
Just as interesting as the windows in Nevada City were the doors. I particularly liked the Chamber of Commerce door and patio above the door. I have to admit that my eyes first rested on the See’s Candy sign in the window. For more doors check out Dan Antion’s post at No Facilities this week.
It was great to spend some time with our son and his girlfriend. At the National Exchange Hotel, we all had breakfast. I had the creamiest spinach and onion quiche with a green salad. Vince and Carrie had Madame Croque. She shared her Croque with her almost husband-to-be and he gave her most of the French toast. The “almost” in that announcement is because it is not official yet.
Of course, we overate the entire time we have been in California. Carrie made the most delicious Brussel sprouts casserole. Yes, you heard me correctly. Something good can come from Brussel sprouts. She sliced them into quarters, then added a cup of cream, a ton of shredded Gruyère, and Parmesan cheese along with spices including garlic powder. It baked for 40 minutes, and was the best vegetable casserole ever!
Mama Cormier has some interesting Thursday Trios from her trip to France if you really want to see some exotic trios. These are pretty American.
My blogging time is up, so I’ll see you next week. I hope you enjoyed Nevada City. I think Vince and his son are both ready to move there. But no!!! No, no, no, no.
Hope you all have a wonderful week. Charli Mill’s Story Chat comes up May 10th. You won’t want to miss that.
