604 – Cubano Pizza


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode:

We tested out party options
We were going to take Chad’s folks out for their 50th wedding anniversary and needed to test some options. We headed out to Bass Bay Brewhouse for lunch. Both sandwiches we ordered were fantastically delicious. The next night we went to Parkside 23 to talk with the staff and make reservations.

Ruth hosted a coffee break
The World’s Largest Coffee Break happened for the 13th year. About 700 people come out into a park in downtown Milwaukee to enjoy free coffee and baked goods.

Cubano Pizza!

We had a Cubano pizza
For Wineza, we headed out to Pizza Man and they had a Cubano pizza as their specialty pizza. It was really good but a little heavy on the mustard.

We restocked the bar
We were a wee bit low on a number of bar items so we headed to Total Wine where Chad got a cart because he didn’t want to risk the Scotch incident of 2018 happening again. Because we had a cart we bought WAY more than we anticipated.

We celebrated Chad’s folks’ 50th Anniversary
After much investigation, we decided to take Chad’s folks to Parkside 23 for a celebration meal.

509 – Going to Camp


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

Returned to meal prep

Chili Lime Chicken Skillet

We picked four recipes and shopped for them all. We spent three hours Sunday afternoon making all the recipes. It was the perfect amount of food for the week. Check out this Chili Lime Sweet Potato Chicken Skillet recipe.

Used Yelp to find pizza
Chad was dog-sitting and we tried to find local pizza. We ended up at Pizza Man in Oak Creek. We tried a chicken pesto specialty pizza along with a Dry Creek Vineyards Cabernet.

Bought some flowers for the lanai

Never enough flowers

Ruth went shopping for plants, flowers, and hanging baskets at Prospect Hill Gardens. Everyone is done with winter and was out gathering plants.

Got the news Chad is going to camp
In middle school, Chad attended a cancer camp called Camp One Step. As a 40-year survivor, he applied and now has the opportunity to be a counselor at the same camp.

Decided to be more social
Ruth had a ton of social engagements this week and really enjoyed it. She doesn’t go out a lot but she’s going to start asking people to hang out with her. And Chad’s going to go out more, too. #tacodate #makerdate
