Helping build a memorial honor a great man for students of Baltimore

I know this post is not what I normal write about, but this is very near and dear to my heart.

Last week a friend and coworker lost her husband unexpectedly and we want to honor him by giving back to kids, students and book lovers!

Christopher Morone and his wife Wendy both work for Baltimore City Public Schools as Library Media Specialists just like me.  I met Wendy when we went through program for Library Media at Notre Dame of Maryland.  Chris followed in his wife's footsteps and also became a Media Specialist.  

I then had the honor to work at Monarch Academy Baltimore with Wendy for a year as Media Specialist.  Chris not only gave to his school but to Monarch and any school his wife worked at.

Chris was an amazing man, husband, father, grandfather and teacher.  He was passionate about his work and the students.  

To honor Chris they want to create a place that is peaceful place for children to read, relax, reflect, and feel safe - dedicated to Chris and the children of Baltimore. 

Please share and help build our dreams to honor Chris!

Avocado Baked Eggs

On the weekends (or the days I don't have to go teach) I love a good breakfast packed with protein!  During the summer I try to be super healthy and hit the gym at least 405 days a week if not 6 days (During the school year I do my best but it get hard).   I had a bag of avocados I needed to use up so I search online and did some tweaking and came up with this dish!

Avocado Baked Eggs

  • 1 Hass Avacado
  • 2 large eggs

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
  2. Slice the avocado in half, and take out the pit. Scoop out some flesh from the center of the avocado, just enough so the egg will fit 
  3. Place the avocados in a baking dish
  4. Crack an egg into each avocado half
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cooking time will depend on the size of your eggs and avocados.
  6. Remove from oven, then season with pepper, chives, and garnish of your liking

PRODUKT Milk-frother new favorite kitchen gadget

I hit up Ikea the other day and dropped the twins off in Småland to play so I could take a moment to breathe and shop!  I found my new favorite kitchen gadget the PRODUKT Milk-frother.  

It make getting that coffee house frothed milk at home so easy!   ITs a vibrating wire whip powered by 2AA batteries (took a me a minute to figure out how to put the batteries in - Ikea directions always leaving you guessing!).  

I was reading some reviews online and many people recommend warming milk for 30 seconds beforehand but I did not.  I also didn't use milk - I used my Internal Delight coffee creamer and did it from cold.  

You can find in store at ikea for around $2.80 or on Amazon for $6.30 for black one (which is still much cheaper than most other versions of this item).

So far I am loving it!!!!

Cirque du Soleil: Varekai

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world - a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai.

From the sky falls a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, this young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of all possibilities, begins an inspired incantation to life rediscovered.
The word Varekai means "wherever" in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers. This production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to the infinite passion of those whose quest takes them along the path that leads to Varekai.

The last day of the show is July 12th at the Rooyal Farms Arena

Some of the characters got out to Phillips Seafood restaurant in the Inner Harbor to get a Taste of Baltimore - check out some of the pictures and videos!

The Oceanaire offers Coravin Wine System serving high-end wine without pulling cork

If you thought you would never be able to try that $250 bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon with your steak, think again. The Oceanaire is giving guests the opportunity to do just that by offering five premium wines by-the-glass.
Normally, restaurants shy away from offering expensive wines by-the-glass, as the cost of waste is too high. When a bottle of wine is opened, on average, the restaurant has three days to sell the rest of the bottle before oxidation occurs and the wine becomes unpalatable. To be the first large national restaurant concept to launch a continual, super premium wine by-the-glass program, The Oceanaire implemented a system so that the Sommelier never even has to pull the cork from the bottle. 
The Oceanaire equipped their restaurants with the Coravin Wine Access System, which is a proprietary system of Coravin Inc. that allows the wine to be poured from a bottle without ever pulling a cork, thus saving the wine from being exposed to oxygen and preventing the oxidation process from occurring. 
“We are excited to partner with Landry’s on developing a unique wine by the glass program that offers premium wines to guests at The Oceanaire. Together, we are revolutionizing the dining experience and transforming the way wine is served, experienced, and enjoyed, ”said Kareem Ghobrial, Director for North American Sales at Coravin, Inc.
The Oceanaire will offer Coravin selections for fine wines such as Chateau MontelenaCabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Cakebread; Chardonnay, Napa Valley , Goldeneye; Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley, Marchesi Antinori, "Tignanello”; Toscana IGT Red Blend, Opus One, Red Blend, Napa Valley.

“The Coravin is a deal-changer,” said Michael Fay, Winemaker of Goldeneye. “I’m truly impressed with the way our Goldeneye Pinot Noirs show when served from the Coravin. The serving extracted on the first day the bottle is tapped will be indistinguishable from the pour extracted from the bottom of the bottle even weeks later. As a winemaker, preserving our Pinot Noir’s delicate aromas and fruit is paramount. With the Coravin, the quality of our wines is never diminished.”

“We feel the Coravin system helps to elevate The Oceanaire’s wine programs to a new level and are extremely excited to offer this added value to our guests,” said Tylor Field, III, Landry’s Divisional Vice President of Wine and Spirits.
