Hushpuppies are fried cornmeal/flour dough leavened with baking soda. Anything fried is good but having said that hps are just ok to me. Kind of bland. But then again I'm a Yankee.

Yes, what gfweb and mjx said re: hush puppies. Deep-fried cornbread nuggets. And "hard" in the context of cider means "alcoholic". "Cider" without that description in the US is unfiltered apple juice.

Final meal of the blog:

Thin-crust pizza with prosciutto, artichoke hearts, roasted garlic, mushrooms, and olives. A relaxed lunch on the patio of a restaurant called Brixx.

Thanks to all who followed the blog. I had a great time doing it.

I like rye toast (dry) with just a hint of orange marmalade along with my eggs :)

You mentioned that you are a seltzer drinker. I like it in the morning especially with a hit of fresh citrus juice. Revs me up. Currently I am purchasing the Safeway brand in 12 oz. cans and it is quite economical though I have been following our Sodastream topic. How do you buy yours?

I have a Sodastream and I love it. I don't think I'm saving any money over buying seltzer at the store, but not having to lug the bottles around is nice. I like to squeeze a bit of lemon or lime in. I do have some of the soda syrups, and also that Mio stuff works well for flavoring.

I have really enjoyed this, Christa! Are you going to encourage your husband to read this so that he can see what you got up to in his absence?

I love my Sodastream, too. I honestly don't know how I lived without it lol. I also order a case of these
every month. I love the taste of the canned water, too.

Thanks for blogging! It's been fun watching your week of decadence :) Now I want pizza for dinner.......

Ive very much enjoyed your blog.

you have convinced me to go back to making my own ice cream. I used to do this a long time ago with a Donvier ice cream maker ( by hand )

it worked well, and I did this with true heavy cream from a local dairy in Up State NY. when i went there. which was often back then.

Well .... what is your brand of Ice Cream Maker?

maybe I might look into it. and Buy local?

I drink a lot of seltzer too. I have an old fashioned seltzer bottle but on the recommendation of a friend I have been ordering TalkingRain sparkling water via Amazon's Subscribe & Save as it is so easy to keep in the fridge.
I get a case every month.

And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

Re: ice cream maker: It's a Cuisinart. I think it was $30 or so. You have to keep the cylinder in the freezer (or freeze overnight before you use it) - it's that thing next to the vodka in the freezer picture on the first page.
