Welcome to Week #41 of Inspire Me Mondays!
I'm back home in Italy. It feels great to be in familiar surroundings with Jeff, Heidi and Thor.
We had a nice "welcome back to the reality of Naples" on Saturday when I left the house for 90 minutes to pick Jeff up from the airport.
We returned home to discover that someone had helped themselves to our big ol' gas grill.
They entered our yard (through our locked gate) and hauled it right off the front porch. This thing weighed over 250 pounds. It was 11 years old, but worked just fine.
We are mourning our loss, but are thankful they didn't enter the house . . . this time!
As is true in any big city, petty crime happens. We know this, but it still gets me that some people feel entitled to help themselves to the things you've worked hard for.
Trust me -- I worked hard for that grill.
We window shopped for new grills yesterday. We're opting for a smaller version this time -- one that will fit on the balcony just off the kitchen. Those rats will have to work a little harder next time!
Moving on . . .
Last week's most viewed post was this CopyCat Chick-fil-A Chicken Salad Sandwich from Cincy Shopper. I ate at Chick-Fil-A for the very first time about 10 days ago. Pretty good!
And I must have had a sweet tooth this week because my two top favorites are all about cake and muffins!
Buttermilk Blueberry Morning Cake from The Thrifty Housewife. Everything about this just sounds SO right!
I also thought these Sugar Crusted Raspberry Muffins from My Sweet Mission sounded pretty wonderful!
Congratulations! Be sure to grab your button!
