Duck a l'Orange for grins

Duck a l'Orange is a favorite treat here and there's none better than Julia Child's take on the classic French recipe. It's not hard to make, but it does take a long time to prepare correctly. If you get good ingredients, a nice duck and plump, sweet oranges, you'll do just fine. There are some special things you will need like some cooking twine, spices, liquer, etc., but they aren't expensive or troublesome. It's a great meal and the kids love it too! A little expensive, but every once in awhile, SPLURGE!

It's just too HOT this summer!

It's way too hot this summer. Even the animals at the Zoo have to take a breather in this this weather. When was the last time you went to the zoo? It's fun ... but be prepared to sweat!

Dr. Pepper Museum in Waco, Texas

This is the Dr. Pepper Museum in Waco, Texas. It doesn't look lik much on the outside ... or the insde ... but this where Dr. Pepper was bottled when the concern went commercial way back when. Of course times have moved on, machinery become more sophisticated, and corporate realities require FAR bigger building, BUT this is still something to stop by and see. The best part of the museum tour may be the ice cream and soda parlor on the first floor. Ask fo a Dr. Pepper milk shake. They'll put heaps of ice cream into a metal cup. Then they'll add a spalsh of milk. Next will come a super big shot of Dr. Pepper syrup - yep, the same stuff the add soda water to make Dr. Pepper that everyone knows and loves. Then they'll put all the ingredients into a mixer and blend until it's creamy and smooth. They'll put it into a large cup and hand you a straw, but it's best to scoop it up with a spoon. It's THAT good!
