  1. Must try that delicious parmesan zucchini casserole. Another idea that I have----- You could drive and drive. It wouldn't matter if you took the wrong exit or which town or city you arrived at. While in that town or city take photos of the fashion displays in the store windows and post them for us.

  2. Hmmm that is an interesting idea.
    Next time I get lost I will! Although most small towns do not have fashion boutiqes, or shops. They're just too small. But when I come across a city, I definitly will

  3. Sounds yummy! I will probably be trying that one sometime soon.
