Hello from NW Arkansas!

If you’ve read my blog before you may think the title of this post is referring to the Razorbacks here at The University of Arkansas.  And although Fayetteville is know for their Hogs, this weekend was all about Harley Davidson Hogs.  This weekend was Bikes, Blues and Barbeque here in Fayetteville, and before I go any further, let me just say pictures could not do it justice.

Bikes, Blues and Barbeque is a bike rally that can probably only be compared to Sturgis.  They were expecting over 400,000 people to ride into our little downtown on their motorcycles this weekend, and from what I witnessed today, I’d say those estimates were accurate.  We’ve been hearing the bikes coming in from Missouri and past our house for the last couple of days.  I personally have never seen, or heard, anything like it.  In fact, my hearing may never be the same.  Full disclosure, my loving husband, also referred to as The Bald Eagle, owns a Harley, but we weren’t hard core enough to take it out of the garage today.  He’s ridden in the Rolling Thunder in DC, but this was something even he didn’t expect to see here in Arkansas.

Again, pictures are not going to do this justice, but let me try. . .








I was on the wrong side of the street for this picture, but if you look closely . . .


Yes, those are bunnies on bikes!!

We did partake in the barbeque part of BBB, too.


This is The Bald Eagle holding a giant turkey leg.  I wish we had a chicken leg to hold up beside the turkey leg so you could see how humungous this was!!  It got the best me, too.  I’m glad Thanksgiving is two months away, because it will take me that long to be hungry for turkey again.

I couldn’t end a blog without telling you about the latest sweet and yummy recipe I discovered.  Salted Caramel Rice Crispy Treats are a little piece of heaven.  Not Hog heaven.  Marshmallow, crispy, sweet and salty heaven.  A modern take on the favorite family treat.  Try it and you’ll never go back to the plain Jane original.

Hope everyone is having a heavenly weekend!!
