Farrelly’s

Recently we visited a new restaurant in Hoover. We’ve been in this building before for another restaurant. It was originally built as a bank and still has the vault in the building. Now the restaurant is known as Farrelly’s. We went on a Saturday morning and had to order from the brunch menu. I went…

The Purple Stuff

Do you have a recipe that reminds you of your childhood? Over the holidays I had a Facebook memory that reminded me of one. Sonya and I love what we always called “the purple stuff”. Growing up we had an aunt that made it and we didn’t know what it was so we always called…

Peanut Butter Cookies

For my family Christmas we decided to just do finger foods this year. I made homemade peanut butter cookies which are easy to make and they were a big hit. I use a really easy recipe that I got years ago from someone at church. 1 cup peanut butter 1 cup sugar 1 egg Combine…

Barbecue Stop

With Covid-19 it’s been awhile since we tried a new restaurant. But we have tried to get back to finding new restaurants, working thru our list of places that we’ve yet to visit. We have had the Barbecue Stop at Clay on our list for quite some time. We decided on a VERY cold Saturday…

Chocolate!!! (Sky Bear Confections)

I’ve been following Sky Bear Confections on social media that was coming to Trussville that is all things chocolate! I needed a sweet snack while we were in the area and decided to give them a try. They have a display case of all kinds of chocolate truffles and some of the most delicious melt…

The Casual Pint

Recently while in the Hoover area we saw a place at The Grove shopping area that we added to our list of places to try. We decided recently to give them a try. Turns out this is more of a pub/bar than a restaurant. They don’t have sweet tea other than possibly in a bottle…

Get Outside – Chattanooga Zoo

With having been social distancing and not having a vacation we decided to take a weekend trip to Chattanooga, TN. We’ve been there quite a bit since it’s just a 2 hour drive from home. So we’ve done almost everything. So we started looking for anything that we had not done and we came across…

Alabama vs. Kentucky- Covid style

We attended the Alabama vs. Kentucky football game. We were a little concerned about going, just because we weren’t sure what to expect with social distancing. We had heard about the changes, but until you experience them for yourself you’re never really sure. So we started our day out with a stop at Deep Roots…

Get Outside – Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo

The Little Zoo that Could! On our recent trip to Orange Beach we decided to visit the zoo. We hadn’t been before, so off to the zoo we went with face masks on and camera in hand. We had to wear our face masks in any of the closed areas, but not while walking around…

Final Flight

On November 4, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. we were able to stand on the beach at Orange Beach and see the final flight of the 6 F/A-18 A/B/C/D “Legacy” Hornets of the U. S. Navy Blue Angels. This was the final flight of these jets and the transition to the F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet platform….
