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.

501 – Mediterranean Diet


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

Ate a lot
Ruth visited Tre Rivali with her friend Sarah. The meat and cheese plate was simply outstanding. Then, we revisited Matty’s and tried the “Cheese Logs” – these were way more than a simple cheese stick.

Found ourselves back in Total Wine
We returned to Total Wine to pick up a couple more bottles of wine for the cellar. Chad was fronting bottles as we went along and the staff was thrilled.

Enjoyed a celebration of life
We went out to Mr. B’s Steakhouse to celebrate the life of the best beagle/basset ever – our very own Tater Tot who passed away one year ago.

Got some test results
Ruth saw a new doc and had some tests done. Her A1C level is pre-pre-diabetic. Her doctor recommended changing diet and exercise. We’re exploring the Mediterranean diet, Chad will be visiting a doctor, and we’re going to start exercising.

Took the beagle girls to class
We took Tini and Abby to a “Rocket Recalls” class on Friday. The intent was to help reinforce their recall ability.

413 – Earworm


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

Got an Instant Pot

Instant Pot Korean Beef

We took the plunge and purchased a refurbished Instant Pot. Our first recipe was Korean beef. We were amazed at how it worked (and had to consult the user manual online).

Headed out for date night
We went to Tenuta’s in Bay View for Italian. Ruth got the mushroom ravioli and it was delicious. We’ll definitely be back and we’ll have to try the pizza!

Spent too much on wine
On Wednesday, we ordered by the glass and it was way more expensive than simply buying a bottle. Then, we were off to wineza with more wine. And finally on Saturday, we visited the new Total Wine near our house and brought wine home.

Got “How Far I’ll Go” stuck on a loop in our heads
We heard the main song from Disney’s Moana while shopping at Total Wine. Neither of us knows the words, so it just won’t leave our brains. Oh, and Chad rants on voice actors vs big name actors.

Trained the Beagiles
We celebrated Abby’s birthday last week Sunday. And we’ve been busy working with her to help her be safer and healthier.
