Butterkeks and Chocolate
Have you seen these cookies?
Well if not, you won't see them here either because they are delicious! These are made by the UTZ company which is based in Baltimore, MD so you may find them around that area if they are not in a store where you are.

The cookies are also available separately. They are the Butterkeks, and they are good on

Dinner with Ingo and Ina
Our friends Ingo and Ina live in Vienna and when they heard we were coming to Vienna they invited us to their home for dinner. We knew they were good cooks - but this was like a Michelin starred restaurant experience!

Arnold Palmer lemonade tea drink
I was sad to hear Arnold Palmer passed away back in September. Before he passed away, I had pre-ordered his recent memoir on Amazon and I was looking forward to hearing more fascinating stories. It sounded like Arnie was quite the guy.
I also decided that I wanted to try the official Amazon Arnold Palmer drink. I saw it everywhere in Florida but I never tried it. Well, this turned out to be QUITE the hunt in DC! I have looked everywhere and the only thing I can find is Arnold
