The Stage – A bachelorette is on the stage of course. I think we saw about 15 bachelorette parties.


“Water’s for teardrops, Dickel’s for drinking.”  We had way too much fun with Dickel jokes.

Cumberland River – I think it would be cool if they worked on making this more pedestrian friendly.


Yes, we will definitely have the duck fat tater tots please. ;)

Summer Rain ☔

E was home sick today with double ear infection and double pink eye! (Even though her eyes weren’t pink.) We were kind of stuck taking it easy so we did yoga and practiced our headstands. Then I made my friend Molly’s tabbouleh recipe. Yum! An afternoon storm brought sheets of rain. 20140623-212345-77025364.jpgBaby and Mama Yoga

6-8 servings
You should begin to soak the bulghar wheat at least 3 hours before
serving time. It needs to thoroughly marinate and chill. This dish
tastes better on the second day.

1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup good olive oil (I use ¼ c)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
Fresh black pepper
4 scallions, finely minced
1 cup minced parsley, packed
10 -15 mint leaves, minced
2 medium tomatoes, diced or 4 roma tomatoes,diced
1 cucumber, seeded and minced

½ c cooked chickpeas, 1 chopped green pepper, ½ c coarsely grated
carrot, 1 chopped summer squash, feta cheese, olives.

1.    Combine bulghar, boiling water and salt in a bowl. Cover and let
stand 15-20 minutes, or until bulghar is chewable.
2.    Add lemon juice, garlic, oil and mint and mix thoroughly.
REfridgerate 2-3 hours.
3.    Just before serving, add the vegetables and mix gently. Correct seasonings.

Garnish with feta cheese & olives.
