Vacation for HTT

HTT is going on a summer break.

We'll be back in September, so keep us bookmarked and don't forget us - you can always enjoy our delightful archives, too. Have a tasty summer!

Go Amish or Go Home

Some swear the ballparks do it best. Others say the ones out of a box aren't half bad. Some like theirs at the movies.

Unless you count OJ and hot mint tea as cocktails, cough drops as appetizers, or  comfort foods like tomato soup and Mac & Cheese as five-star dinners, it's been pretty lame.

However, no less than three local peeps have offered to bring us the ultimate comforting cure of chicken noodle soup. If it wasn't 102 degrees outside folks, we might have a deal.

My plans for canning strawberry jam were dashed this week due to illness and I'm not even sure local berries are still available in this sweltering climate now. I did, however, snag a tasty cantaloupe. It's been a healthy, cool treat that's soothing to our aggravated throats.


Boo to sickness. Want to know what didn't suck recently? Our…
