Graffiti in Prague, Czech Republic In June of 2014, John and I had the pleasure of attending a friend’s wedding in the Czech Republic. As we started to explore the city of Prague, the first thing that stood out to me was the amount of graffiti on the buildings. My first thought was that they had gang problems as we do in the U.S., although there was no evidence of danger as we wandered the city streets.
We had a day or two to explore the city before we met up with Bill and Kamila for their rehearsal dinner. The first chance I got, I asked Bill about the graffiti. Bill had lived in Amsterdam for over a decade, and Kamila grew up in the Czech Republic. Bill explained to me that the graffiti was not about gangs or violence, but about artistic expression. That answer was so much better than I expected.
The wedding was held high on a hill, with breath-taking views of the city. We enjoyed our trip to Prague completely. We found the city to be beautiful, clean, friendly and safe. John asked if I would return to Prague, and I said, “Yes” without hesitation. Beautiful, beautiful city!!!
Have a great day!
I have always been a fan of breakfast food any time of the day. Tonight I got home later than usual and had to scrounge for something quick and lite for dinner. This veggie omelette is made with one whole egg and two egg whites, so it is packed with protein for less calories. I don’t like to omit the yolks completely, since they are packed with vitamins and nutrients.
1/3 cup diced vegetables, such as onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, broccoli
1 t. butter
1 whole egg
2 egg whites
1 T. milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 slices deli cheese, such as Cooper Sharp Cheese (optional)
1. Saute veggies with butter in a non-stick pan on low to med heat until tender and caramelized.
2. Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper and add to the veggie mixture.
3. Cook on low to med heat until omelette is almost cooked through.
4. Using a large spatula, flip omelette over and add cheese if desired.
5. Cook for another minute, then fold omelette over itself and move to a serving dish.
Gettysburg, PA 2016
John and I are very fortunate to live close to one of the most historical landmarks in Pennsylvania. We visited Gettysburg last Forth of July weekend and were very impressed with this charming little town.
At that time we had only been riding horses for a short while and didn’t realize we could tour the battlefields on horseback. So this year, we planned ahead and made reservations for a hotel and a horseback tour of the Gettysburg battlefields.
It is hard to imagine all of the men, women, children and animals that died on those battlefields so many years ago. This guided tour was both awe-inspiring and breath-taking at the same time. Here are some pictures from our ride.
If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend a trip to this beautiful little town in Pennsylvania. Whether by horseback or on foot, it is a site to see. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I know we will.
Here is another instance where I would LOVE to take credit for this recipe, but I cannot. I stopped by a local orchard and picked up some fresh blueberries. Alongside of various produce items, there were recipes. I asked if it was okay to take a picture of the recipe, and the clerk told me I could just take one. They were printed and in tablet form so you could just tear one off and take it with you. I thought that was a very cool idea.
So, I will share this recipe with the disclaimer, “this is NOT a low-calorie or low-fat food”. That being said, it was oh-so-good!!! Here is the recipe.
Happy Independence Day!!! Have a fun and safe weekend!
