Eerie Haunts in Alton, Illinois

Travel

If you read my last post, I mentioned I was going to recount my spine-tingling journey through the streets of Alton, Illinois, so here I go.  Even though Alton is not the largest town, they sure had their fair share of ghostly haunts.  So, in keeping with the spirit of Halloween, I’ll post a ghost story per day, until All Hallows’ Eve.

Recipe: Oregano Pesto Brussels Sprouts

Life

Eat Your Brussels Sprouts Last night, I was trying to decide what to serve for a side dish, and thankfully Publix came to the rescue.  You’ve just got to love a grocery store that prepares simple meals to taste as you shop. I remember seeing the word “Brussels Sprout” and immediately said to myself “Ew, I don’t like Brussels Sprouts.” But, with a little encouragement by the friendly Publix staff, I tried them and fell in love. So much so, they…
