Shakespeare in the Park...

I know you might be thinking, "Shakespeare in the Park, in Miami?"
Yes folks, we have some culture too....

Last weekend I dragged Mariza, Bea, Michael, and Frank with me to Barnacle Park to watch the production of Taming of the Shrew.

We had a fabulous time! The park is lovely, we brought snacks, and beach chairs; many people had blankets and towels to sit on. The acting was great and the singing too. Even the weather cooperated it was a cool 70 degrees. I didn't bring the Snuggie, but my sweater was fine.
It was a nice, free, family style event.
Glad I went., I'll definitely go again!

The cold reaches Miami...

The new year and new decade starts chilly!

So many of you in the north think that us South Floridians are whinny but MAN its cold! It was 37 degrees last night! Tonight it is going to be around 29! For those of us who usually wear scarves and flip flops, we are scrambling to layer up and using our heaters.

So in honor of the weather, I used the recipe that Apartment Therapy's The Kitchn has of Split Pea Soup!

I was lucky enough to have a ham bone left over from our Christmas dinner!
