I think it's safe to say that we are in the put-things-on-your-head-stage. These were all taken within about 15 minutes. 18 months...such a fun stage!

Black's BBQ

Lockhart, TX: BBQ Capitol of the world. When you are in the area, stopping is a must. There are three main contenders; Black's, Kreuz's and Smitty's. Today we decided on Black's and were not let down a bit. There is a strong divide about which is the best and we plan to try them all again in our own little competition.

Sausage- The best I've ever had and I don't like sausage.

Brisket- Parts were moist, parts were dry, really fatty but great flavor. Overall a 4.0 out of 5.

Sauce- perfection.

{chemical free} fly trap

I saw this on the Internet a few months ago...probably on pinterest. Now I make them frequently to sit by the fruit bowl and catch fruit flies. It works like a charm!

Put some fragrant fruit in the bottom of a jar.

Roll a paper plate or piece of paper into a cone and tape secure with just a small opening on the skinny end.

Insert the cone into jar and press down to be sure there aren't any open spaces between paper and jar. You don't want them to escape!

Then, just sit back and watch the stupid little things fly in and get stuck! Viola!

To empty the trap, go outside and let them free (if you're nice) or rinse them down the drain if they are dead (if you're not as nice).
