How It’s Made {LaGreca Style}

Family, Friends, Holidays No Comments

In annual LaGreca tradition, we spent the Saturday after Thanksgiving making Italian Sausage from scratch.

We had lots of returning friends, neighbors and family, of course — but we also had some sausage-making-rookies. We bought 200 lbs of meat (that is 50+ lbs more than we did last year)!

By the end of the night, I could barely walk and we decided that our annual ‘operation’ has finally grown out of our manual hand-crank grinders. We are going to have to go with industrial power for next year.

Here are a bunch of pictures I snapped from the day.

Agua Caliente VI

Family, Friends, Vacation No Comments

I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t gone back to my previous posts for Agua Caliente (links to my previous years are included at the bottom of this post). This year was our 6th time out in the desert with our ‘people’. We seem to have acquired more ‘people’ with each year that passes. This year was no exception. We had a few newbie families. Yay!!!

Final Counts
10 RV Sites (including 2 tent-camping families)
1 Cabin
28 Adults
18 kids (ages 1-9 years old)
2 Dogs
3 Pot-luck meals with TONS of yummy food
And…22 Band-aids between the 2 LaGreca boys

The weather was absolutely amazing this year. We couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Halloween 2014

Anthony, Family, Friends, Holidays, Nicholas No Comments

After last Halloween (Star Wars themed costumes & trunks) – I have to admit, we (and the Miller’s) were out of the next ‘epic’ idea. Fine by me. We kept it pretty mild and manageable – but LOTS of activities.

We went to the Halloween Happening at Nicholas’ school (and brought a friend, Jonas, with us)
