Bath Salt Zombies at Tir Na Nog Daytona

I had the pleasure of seeing the Bath Salt Zombies last night at the Tir Na Nog in Daytona Beach, Florida. After living in the area for many years and hearing the "same old same old" the BSZ were truly like a breath of fresh air. Rather than try and describe them to you, I will borrow their own description from their facebook page, because it sums them up very nicely:

The Bath Salt Zombies play acoustics, but don't let that fool you. Their acoustic image is countered with shredder banjo leads, killer percussion, funky double bass and in-your-face vocals that will make your head spin. BSZ's versatility will leave you wanting more! 

I agree, I was definitely left wanting more. Also, the Tir Na Nog in Daytona Beach is a very cool venue. Think Irish Pub meets 60's coffee house. Pleasantly bohemian atmosphere. If you didn't get to see them last night, you can catch them this weekend at the Band Camp on Cracker Creek in Port Orange Florida. I highly recommend you check this band out!!!

Is Florida's New Logo Sexist???

Ughhh I'm afraid I think so. With all the amazingly creative people there are out there, why come up with something that seems to almost purposefully exlude women? You almost have to wonder how it got that far without someone saying, "hey, wait a minute..." A tie is certainly not the only expression of a business situation, yikes. Can we go back to the drawing board here? Read more and check out the logo.

Best Hot Wings In Florida

It's Superbowl Sunday, and our menu for the game includes Hot Wings and BLT Dip. We always look for something pretty easy to make so we can relax and enjoy. Also this year I am trying to do lower carb choices. Now that I have turned 50, I have discovered carbs are not so kind to me. My search for a hot wing recipe got me wondering where you can get the best hot wings in the state of Florida. I googled that and came up with this list. Enjoy the game (only in America, lol)

Publix Hot Italian Sausage in Crock Pot

I can't tell you how many times we have made this and even served it for dinner when we have company. Publix is always running sales on their delicious hot sausage, and also "buy one get ones" on their spaghetti sauces. There are so many great brands out there, we just grab whatever is on sale and don't worry about being picky. Today the sausage was on sale, and I had two jars of prego sauce in the pantry from the last sale. So I put one jar in the bottom of the crock pot, put the sausage next, no need to cut it, and then the other jar on top of that. Cook on low 8 hours or high 4 to 5 hrs. Today I am having mine with a salad because I'm low carbing, but hubby is having whole wheat spaghetti which was also "by one get one". I have also served it with, manicotti, stuffed shells, or even lasagna. We always grate fresh Parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy!!!
