This coming weekend is the August Taste of the Inns and Rick and I have been testing appetizers for several weeks now. We have finally settled on our two choices to serve all tour participants. They are Garden Fresh Gazpacho with all fresh ingredients from the Farmers Market and Crab Cakes with fresh crab and a dijon mustard sauce. After the tour I’ll share both of these recipes on this site. We will also be serving a ‘mocktail’ and have chosen a non-alcoholic Mimosa that you make with sparkling cider instead of champagne. Looking forward to this event and also the Volkswagen car show which is also this weekend. Lots and lots of beetles and bugs in town.

Bluegrass Festival this weekend, lots of music around town and in the parks. Busy weekend for us, we have a couple shadowing us to see if they would like to buy a bed and breakfast. This is a service we offer to aspiring innkeepers. Lets folks get a taste of what it is really like.

Rick and I enjoyed a few days off and traveled with friends. Had a nice time shopping, and trying new restaurants. Nice weekend in store, no major events in Eureka Springs this weekend, but still a busy one. Trying out recipes for the Taste of the August event coming up soon.

Yards & Yards of Yard sales weekend. Several of our guests were out before breakfast picking up treasures. The whole town participates, and if you’re a bargain hunter, you might want to make plans for next year.

Ho Hum another beautiful day in Eureka Springs. On todays menu: Bananas Foster french toast with potato gratin, fresh fruit and sausage. Why aren’t you here? Everyone should start their day like this. Have a great day! See you soon.

We’ve almost filled up for our August Taste of the Inns event on August 29th. It should be a fun event where you tour 12 B&B’s and try their favorite appetizer recipes and ‘mocktails’. You surely won’t need dinner after this event. Rick and I have been testing appetizer recipes every night for dinner but haven’t settled on the two perfect ones yet. Stay tuned…

We’ve got a girls high school reunion here this weekend from Ft. Smith, Kansas. They’ve come from all over after getting reacquainted on Facebook. They’re planning on shopping til they drop and we can attest to the laughter they are sharing. Looks like fun. Temperature is in the mid 80’s and it super pleasant.
