Holiday Double Play Blog Candy


Hey, you came back!! :-)  I wanted to do something to kick off this holiday weekend!!  I plan on doing some crafting but we had planned to be away for the weekend which did not work out.  No worries, I have plenty to do here, but since I am going to be home I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to put Double Play up again.  That and a whole afternoon of watching Hoarders last Sunday have catapulted me into some purging action in the studio and hopefully a small course correction in my habits.  As I’ve been reorganizing it’s amazing how many of the same things I tend to buy.  Your gain!!  Well everything in the blog candy is new, I just had too many.   I just added the Spellbinders and the bonus EK Success punch to make it a nice prize. 

So if this is your first time playing double play, here’s how it works.  The above blog candy is up for grabs.  You can leave a comment on my blog, on this post, once a day until the end of the candy on Monday night at 11:00pm (CST), May 31st.  In your comment tell me, if someone’s treating you to your favorite dinner out, where do you want to go?  Once the candy ends, I’ll have pick a number that I’ll match to a comment number and that’s the winner.  (By the way, please don’t put a web address in the text of your comment, not even the spelled out ones – it gets dumped into the spam bin and I get so many that I rarely pick through them.)  The winner has 48 hours to reach out to me through my contact page which can be accessed on the top menu portion of my blog.  All I need is for the winner to tell me they want the prize and give me a mailing address to send it to.


Bonus winning ;-)

Punch is Large – roughly size of hand

Punched out area is 2.25" wide and 1.5" tall

Keep reading to see how to win this too.







Here’s where the "double" part comes in. I’ll have a "Word of the Day" that will be posted in the box below two times per day for the duration of the blog candy.  The morning word will go up right after 12 o’clock midnight (CST), then it will be erased and a new word put in its place right after 12 o’clock noon (CST).  Pop in quick to visit this main blog candy post and write the word down.  (Don’t put the words in your comment!!)  Collect the words this week, there will be a total of 8 and if your name is picked for the blog candy and you can give me the 8 words when you claim your candy – you get the punch too.  If the blog candy winner doesn’t have all the words to win the bonus punch, the next name I draw will have a chance.   I’ll keep drawing until we have a winner.   Better grab the words and keep them to yourself just in case!!   The last time I did this the main blog candy winner did not win the punch.  Yay, there were two winners.


This is the last word.


Have a great holiday weekend with friends and family.  Please be sure to take a moment to say a prayer in remembrance of those who have died in our nation’s service.  Above all if you are traveling, be safe my friends!!

    Hi, Becca! Happy Memorial Day weekend. I’ll be staying home with hubby this weekend too, but may get to have a friend whose plans cancelled come by one day to craft with me! ;~)
    If I were going out to be treated to dinner, I’d LOVE to go to Outback Steakhouse and I’d really enjoy a frozen Margarita with my filet and veggies! Hope you get to have a nice dinner out this weekend!ReplyCancel

  • NancyMay 28, 2010 - 12:13 am

    Thanks, Becca, for the chance to win these goodies.You are sooooo generous.
    I have multiple food allergies so I prefer to eat at home-It is safer that way!ReplyCancel

  • Susan GMay 28, 2010 - 12:19 am

    Staying home is always better on holiday weekends as far as I’m concerned. Much safer! We rarely go out to eat so anywhere is a treat. For my birthday this month we went to a local place called the Fish City Grill. The food was good and we’ll go back. We have so many new restaurants in our area that we are trying them one at a time.ReplyCancel

  • CarolMay 28, 2010 - 12:20 am

    Hi Becca! I recently became a Follower after seeing your amazing projects! How generous of you to offer the blog candy!

    If I were being treated out to dinner, I would be happy to go wherever that person desired. If I were asked to pick a place, I would choose either Outback Steakhouse or The Olive Garden (and that unlimited salad!!!).

    Wishing you a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! God bless!ReplyCancel

  • ShirleyMay 28, 2010 - 12:20 am

    Sorry your plans did not work out. Maybe another weekend soon, it will.
    I would want to go to Texas Road house if someone were taking me out to eat. The food there is always yummy. Thanks for sharing your stash.ReplyCancel

    Becca…I look forward to your blog each day just to see your creations, the blog candy is such an added bonus! I look forward to ‘family’ gatherings. We have a variety of places we choose, I love the ‘Olive Garden’. But, I love trying new places also. Have a wonder, safe and blessed holiday!ReplyCancel

  • LuAnn in AZ.May 28, 2010 - 12:25 am

    I go out to a wonderful local restaurant called Crackers with my girlfriends every few months. All of our birthdays come on a quarterly basis and it’s a great excuse to get together with old friends.Crackers serves many homemade soups and desserts. We hardly ever get dessert ’cause we fill up on the great food. Have a really great weekend Becca and thanks for your generosity. We are so blessed to be Americans and so glad for those whose sacrifice has brought us our continued freedom. God bless America… and those who serve in our military!ReplyCancel

  • LorettaMay 28, 2010 - 12:26 am

    Thanks for the chance to win. I would love to go to Olive Garden sometime. I live in a remote area.ReplyCancel

  • KarenMay 28, 2010 - 12:27 am

    Becca…If someone is taking me out to eat, I want to go somewhere I can get a good filet and a glass or two of chardonnay. Hopefully, the restaurant isn’t too loud so we can enjoy the conversation.ReplyCancel

  • ColoradoMay 28, 2010 - 12:28 am

    Hi Becca! Our favorite restaurant is up in Denver and it’s called Claim Jumper. (They are a chain out of California) They have such great food, but what really made them my husband’s and my favorite restaurant is because they have the absolute best chocolate cake we’ve ever found in a restaurant. We are chocoholics and they have a gigantic 6 layer cake that is out of this world. We always get a piece to bring home and it is so big and rich and wonderful that the one slice makes 6 servings… so it lasts us for 3 days!ReplyCancel

  • CindyMay 28, 2010 - 12:31 am

    Hi Becca – I’m so easy when it comes to eating out; for me it more about the company than the food. But if I had to choose, I guess I’d say Turtle Bay (it’s Fresh Mex). I always get the same thing – one salmon and one steak taco. No sides. Just the taco – real tacos, fresh salsa, cabbage, corn tortillas. YUMMY. I hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. Being an Army Brat, this is a very special holiday weekend, and I’m always happy when people acknowledge it for what it is. Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • LindaMay 28, 2010 - 12:34 am

    Becca — May you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

    I love to go to the Melting Pot restaurant — it is so yummy. I love all the courses, but dessert is just fantastic — dipping pieces of cheesecake, fruit, and other goodies into chocolate. It’s heaven!!

    I associate going to the Melting Pot with my daughter, as she and her husband have taken us there on several occasions. They took us there to announce their engagement. Daughter now lives in Taiwan (her hubby transferred there for work), so lots of nice memories associated with this restaurant.ReplyCancel

  • LizetteMay 28, 2010 - 12:34 am

    Hi Becca
    Thank you for another fabulous blog candy. I am sure someone will be extremely happy to win!
    We have a German restaurant here in United Arab Emirates and they serve PORK! Being a Muslim country, pork is not that freely available. I love going there and that is my favourite restaurant it is called The Brauhaus, it is located in a hotel. It was soooo funny when they dicovered “swine flue”, all pork products were stopped in the UAE and this restaurant was forced to close for a while. Thank goodness it is open again.
    Hugs LizetteReplyCancel

  • KaiaMay 28, 2010 - 12:36 am

    One of my favorite places to eat when I’m visiting in the US is Mongolian barbeque. It’s really nice to be able to set up your own meal, and even their desserts are awesome. So I’d love to go there for dinner :)ReplyCancel

  • Amanda de JMay 28, 2010 - 12:37 am

    Hi Becca, I missed the last candy you had – boo-hoo! Thanks for a second chance.
    When we are in the city we go to Ocean Basket for the yummiest seafood you can imagine.
    Have a wonderful long weekend. Can’t wait to see all that you are going to be creating.
    God Bless!ReplyCancel

    Hi from Brisbane, Australia

    Becca your site is just FANTASTIC, AWSOME and GORGEOUS and your cards are truely beautiful – as are you…. If I were to go out for a meal – I would be going to a wonderful local seafood restaurant – the prawns, Balmain bugs and crayfish are to die for – simply delicious. Keep up the fantastic work Becca – your designs are really inspiring.

    Take care all

  • Bonnie RabonMay 28, 2010 - 12:46 am

    Becca, I just want to say thank you for being so kind and giving. Now for the restaurant, well this may sound funny, but its a local cafeteria. They serve the best Veal Parmesan. I craved it when I was pregnant, lol. Its not fancy, but mighty tasty, hehehe.ReplyCancel

  • FreidaMay 28, 2010 - 12:47 am

    Oh Becca, your generosity is never-ending! Thanks so much for another fabulous giveaway! When I go out to dinner, I always love the food and atmosphere at our Park Heights! In fact, we celebrated my son’s high school graduation there tonight! How wonderful it was to be with family and friends for such a special occasion.ReplyCancel

  • Debi MillerMay 28, 2010 - 12:48 am

    I plan on visiting my mother’s, both sets of grandparents and my girlfriends mother’s graves on Monday. Before that I am doing my own housekeeping and getting ready for surgery on Thursday to have a new titanium disc put in my neck. This is a new procedure and I sure hope it goes well. It’s my second neck surgery and I’m looking forward to having a great reduction in pain. I hope my husband will make some great BBQ, but we’ve had such rainy cold weather lately it may not be a good idea. Although, it may also make us feel a little more like spring. We can only hope! I’m glad I have another chance for such awesome blog candy. Thanks Becca…have a terrific weekend with your hubby.ReplyCancel

    I wish I could collect the words, but my daughter is getting married this weekend, and I plan to collapse when the festivities are done! But, if someone were taking me out for dinner, I would choose either Red Robin or Basil (a local, I believe, Italian restaurant). But as long as the company is good, I would go practically anywhere.ReplyCancel

  • ChinnuMay 28, 2010 - 12:57 am

    Hi, Becca – one of my favorite places to eat is Treebeard’s in downtown Houston – I just love their red beans and rice, with yummy grated cheese and chopped onions on top. Mmmmm, good!

  • Donna GMay 28, 2010 - 1:18 am

    Hi Becca, and thanks again for sharing your talent and these great gifts with us.
    As for a dinner out, right now, I’d love to go anywhere my sweet daughter wanted to go. She just had 4 wisdom teeth cut out, so, bless her heart, she can’t eat much right now. She loves Chicken and Dumplings from Cracker Barrel, so her dad and I will take her there as soon as she feels up to being “seen in public” with her swelled cheeks! Once she’s fully recovered, we’ll take her out for her favorite steak!

    I hope you and your family have a great holiday weekend!


  • BarbaraMay 28, 2010 - 1:28 am

    Hi Becca, I prefer to cook at home. However, we have a restaurant/bakery here called “Bakers Square” and they make the best pies I have ever tasted. I would love it if my dinner companion brought a ” Chocolate French Silk ” pie from “Bakers Square” for dessert . I can almost taste it as I type this LOLReplyCancel

  • Juli CMay 28, 2010 - 1:31 am

    thanks for the chance to win!
    if someone was taking me out to dinner (hubby for our anniversary on Sat =D) i’d love go to anywhere that has seafood! yummm…. we are big seafood eaters,, then maybe dessert like cheesecake =)


  • Tanja SMay 28, 2010 - 1:35 am

    Hi Becca, I can’t believe you are giving away more blog candy! I love a nice Italian restaurant. However any restaurant will do because we live in country South Australia where there are only hotels (pubs) nearby and they all do the same meals – schnitzel, steak etc.ReplyCancel

  • RosemaryMay 28, 2010 - 1:41 am

    Thank you so much for another opportunity at some great blog candy!! What an awesome prize!! I love to go to Carrabas Italian in Tulsa, OK. I love the Marsala Steak and most of their chicken dishes. The creme brûlée is one of the best my husband and I have ever had. We love the service there and the owners have always been fabulous. I don’t live in Tulsa anymore, but when we go there to visit family we usually eat there at least once before heading home.ReplyCancel

  • KariMay 28, 2010 - 1:43 am

    Hello! I am not going to tell you about eating out, but how people in Norway and the rest of Europe is “eating in” this weekend. Tomorrow, Saturday 29th is the big music happening in Europe! We arrange Melody Grand Prix/Eurvision Song Contest.
    Last year we won!!! and we are of course the hosts of this event tomorrow. (Oslo, Norway)
    Almost all young people are planning parties, and have bought champagne and planned good food, and gold dresses etc. is a big deal these days.
    And it is fun that people come together and celebrate this music contest, eat and drink, sing karaoke, and have a good time together with the European artists on the TV screen.ReplyCancel

    May y’all have a fantastic and safe holiday.

  • Dorothy T in FLMay 28, 2010 - 2:43 am

    Hi Becca, We should all give thanks and pray for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. I hate to follow that with thoughts of my dinner but I would really like to go to Boston Lobster Feast in Orlando for all-you-can-eat lobster. Gluttony sure tastes good.ReplyCancel

  • Linda S. in NEMay 28, 2010 - 2:45 am

    My favorite restaurant is a local one here in Omaha called Farm House Cafe. They have a dish with grilled Roma tomatoes, served with a delicious sauce, and then arranged in a bowl of handmade, fried, yes, I did say fried, tortillias. The food is yummy, but what is so unique is that the restaurant is actually connected to one of the best and biggest craft stores in the area. Nothing better than having a full tummy and then shopping in the scrapbook section. Life is Good!! And, Thanks to all the Military personnel who keep it that way!! Linda S. in NEReplyCancel

    Thanks for getting the organizing bug! Here in San Antonio, my favorite place to eat is a restaurant called Little Italy. You’ll have to try it the next time you’re down this way for medical treatment with your husband!

  • emilyMay 28, 2010 - 4:46 am

    Enjoy your nice long weekend with all the comforts of home! :o) It’s actually not always a bad thing to be out of the crazy traffic and know where you are when you wake up!

    Which brings me to the answer to your question…I like having dinner at home. I know it’s not fancy and yes I have to cook it myself, but I have food allergies and knowing first, that what I eat isn’t going to make me have a reaction is a good thing, and second, who else is going to prepare food for me and my family with as much care and love as I would. I love cooking and seeing peoples faces when I set a plate of food down in front of them!
    So if they want to treat me to a dinner out, come into my kitchen and pull up a stool! BTW, if you ever travel to my hometown, you’re welcome to come join us too! :D

    Thanks for sharing!!! :o)ReplyCancel

  • Beth AnnMay 28, 2010 - 4:50 am

  • Robyn MooreMay 28, 2010 - 4:59 am

    My favorite place to eat out is anywhere my husband feels up to it. He has been through so much this past year, shattered tibia, gallbladder surgery, 2 cancer surgeries with chemo and radiation.

    Hi Becca,

    I am in awe every time I look at your work. You are truly one of the most talented people I know of.
    If I were being treated to dinner out, I would like to go to a small family owned hamburger shop- Melvin’s. They have a very limited menu – burgers or hot dogs. And they are wonderful!!!!! The prices are great and everyone that works there is friendly. What more could you ask for?

    Enjoy your weekend.ReplyCancel

We have a 40th anniversary ceremony and reception we are participating in and helping out with, too! Thank you for the try at this YUMMY blog candy — somebody will love this!!!!

    hi becca…
    youve got me thinking..
    a fave place to eat out is usually a place that has wonderful fresh seafood/shellfish…mainly because i dont make this at home..(my daughter is allergic..and my fiance isnt a huge fan of seafood.)…I’m always happy having scallops…clams..shrimp.. lobster… calamari etc…
    living on an island surrounded by an ocean and bay makes it easy to find great seafood places!ReplyCancel

  • Vicki SopcakMay 28, 2010 - 5:57 am

    My favorite restaurant would be The Cheescake Factory because they have a good variety of foods on their menu. If you can’t find something you like there, then you are just way too picky!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win.ReplyCancel

  • Lisa MillerMay 28, 2010 - 5:58 am

    I love a place called the Food Shack. The food is fantastic, mostly fish, seafood & stuff. It is expensive enough though that we can only go on special occasions like birthdays & anniversaries.

    PS. I love your blog!ReplyCancel

  • CathyMay 28, 2010 - 6:02 am

    This weekend is my wedding anniversary, so we always go to dinner for that. Our favorite place called Felix’s just closed down (we are bummed), so I think we’ll go to a place called Stumpknockers.ReplyCancel

  • HeatherMay 28, 2010 - 6:03 am

    I totally enjoy a dinner out to Red Lobster. Maine lobster tail is my ultimate treat! Happy Memorial Day weekend … my DH is active Army so we will be celebrating him as well as all the military fallen, retired and still serving :)ReplyCancel

  • JudieMay 28, 2010 - 6:03 am

    If I would get to eat out , I would like to go to Logans Steak House. The steak is wonderful but the rolls are out of this world.
    I love your work…Thank you for the inspiration. Thanks for a chance to win.ReplyCancel

  • LauraMay 28, 2010 - 6:05 am

    Thanks for offering more blog candy. Great seafood is a delight.ReplyCancel

  • JeannieMay 28, 2010 - 6:06 am

    I LOVE that show Hoarders. It inspires me to purge my unneeded stuff because I tend to not like to throw anything away. I’m at just the ‘packrat’ stage as they say.

    The first restaurant on my list that I’d eat out at would probably be Red Lobster. I do love seafood.

    Good luck to everyone!ReplyCancel

    I have been away for the last couple of days and think I’ve missed the first word but I’ll play anyway. thanks for the chance to win some great candy-again – you are so generous- one of my fave place to eat would have to be the Pancake ParlourReplyCancel

  • StephanieMay 28, 2010 - 6:13 am

    If I could go anywhere, I think I would like to do something outside the box. My choice would be the French Laundry on the West Coast. Apparently, their food is fantastic and is somewhere we would never go on our own. Have a great holiday and thanks for the chance to win goodies.ReplyCancel

  • LoriMay 28, 2010 - 6:14 am

    Thanks for the chance to wim some goodies. Your card creations are so amazing!
    We don’t eat out much, but when we do it is usually Red Lobster. I love the Cheddar Bay Biscuits and of course the seafood.ReplyCancel

  • BonnieMay 28, 2010 - 6:17 am

    Hi Becca!
    Thanks for the chance at the great Blog Candy! I am headed out camping with my dog…so no word capturing for me. Oh well! I would want to go to dinner at Maggiano’s…they have THE BEST chicken and spinach mannicotti…and I don’t even like spinach!!!! YUMMY!

    Happy Memorial Day America…Land of the Free, Thanks to the Brave!

  • Kyle E.May 28, 2010 - 6:18 am

    Thanks for the opportunity to win some candy! Yum!! If someone else was picking up the tab, I’d want to go to Tassaro’s, a locally owned restaurant where the meats are cooked over a hardwood grill!! They have the best steaks and burgers! Have a great Memorial Day weekend!ReplyCancel

  • NolaMay 28, 2010 - 6:26 am

    Well, our weekend is starting out with a bang. We aren’t going anywhere special for the weekend, but we have something going on everyday (and then some). My husband and I just enjoy eating. (I guess you could say we are on the seefood diet – We see food and we eat it! – but we do diet in between weekends it seems.)

    Friday night is starting out with friends coming over for hamburgers and polish lobster (marinated chicken) on the grill. Should be a nice evening out on the patio as the weather seems to be cooperating.

    Enjoy your holiday and thanks for the blog candy opportunity.ReplyCancel

  • LindaMay 28, 2010 - 6:27 am

    We go out so seldom, it is always a treat. The last time we went out we went to Mimi’s. They have just the right size- not too much. And the deserts are to die for. The food and atmosphere is always great. Plus we went with friends that we don’t get to see often.ReplyCancel

  • PollyMay 28, 2010 - 6:29 am

    My absolute favorite place to eat is Scooter’s Dawg House in Mentor! They have such a wide assortment of toppings to choose from, the chili, cheese, bacon fries are out of this world, and the owners are the nicest people on the planet!ReplyCancel

  • Beverly AMay 28, 2010 - 6:34 am

    Good morning, Becca! Thank you for another try at winning one of your famous blog candy treats!

    I would love to be treated to a meal at The Jolly Pumpkin on Peninsula Dr., in Traverse City, MI. They have wonderful Artisan Pizza and incredible homemade chips. We found a new wine there – Late Harvest Riesling – delightful Michigan wine. Eating there would mean that we are visiting Traverse City – one of our favorite cities to experience.ReplyCancel

    Sorry your weekend plans didn’t work out. If someone was paying for my lunch, I would love to go to the Olive Garden. I just love their food, especially the salad and bread they serve you before the meal. I’ve never
    gotten a bad meal there.ReplyCancel

    Thanks, Becca, for adding spice to our lives every day. I so look forward to visiting with you each morning and getting my daily inspirational “fix.” The spices I like in my foods would be Italian and one of my favorite places to find these particular spices would be Ragazzi’s.ReplyCancel

  • Candy MeyersMay 28, 2010 - 6:51 am

    Hi Becca,
    Happy Memorial Day Friday. My favorite place to go eat around here is Fatz Cafe. We are in a rural area, and there are not many choices. But Fatz has a wide menu and is always a treat. Thanks for doing these give aways.

    Your work is beautiful and you have a very nice website!

    Hmm, dinner. Well, last night my daughter was having dinner at a friend’s house so my husband & I went to an Australian-themed grill (really a diner) and had gyros. Nothing fancy but I didn’t have to worry about what to make, so I was happy!ReplyCancel

  • Trudy OliverMay 28, 2010 - 6:56 am

    Any place I can get good food and not have to cook is fine with me. And if someone else is paying that is even better. I have several places I like to eat depending on what type of food I want to eat. Longhorn Steakhouse is the place for a good steak and we just got a gift card for our Anniversary. Love the Olive Garden Soup and Salad lunches and got a gift card for there too. Life is good.ReplyCancel

  • Cindy MMay 28, 2010 - 6:57 am

    Have a wonderful Memorial weekend, and may the Lord bless all of those serving in the armed services.ReplyCancel

  • Joyce MMay 28, 2010 - 7:05 am

    When my husband, son and I go out for a special dinner, we go to a local steakhouse/supper club kind of place. It’s like a hidden treasure. Most times, if a restaurant is good, it is packed with people. For some reason this place is generally pretty empty. The food is awesome, the service is excellant, makes us feel special to have the place to ourselves, without feeling rushed.ReplyCancel

My daughter and hubby and granddaughter will come in Sunday or Monday for a picnic, but that’s about it. Most of my friends have taken off on trips, so it’s just hubby and me.

    I would love to win your blog candy. The place my husband would and has taken me out to dinner is a small resturant in the middle of nowhere 12 km out of our small country town called Magpies. The building used to be a primary school, closed due to lack of numbers.ReplyCancel

  • Kelly MassmanMay 28, 2010 - 7:19 am

    Well, I’m going to try really hard to get all of the words this time! :-)

    as our family grew and matured we would let each person pick where they wanted to go for birthday dinner. we were once a quarter so it wasn’t too long before we went to somewhere. of cource when the kids were young it was chucky cheese and places like that. my personal favorite is the melting pot. it is a fondue restaurant. my father-in-law use to joke that they got out easy ’cause you do all the coooking yourself. they have some delicious food there. even if you have to cook it yourself.ReplyCancel

  • ShirleyMay 28, 2010 - 7:36 am

    Hey Becca, not doing anything for the weekend. However it’s Friday night which means date night and dining out. Not sure where yet, but probably to a local place called the Red Hot. I can’t watch Hoarders, it makes me want to do a complete purge of my house.ReplyCancel

  • DallaMay 28, 2010 - 7:37 am

    One of my fav. places to eat is when I visit my brother in OKC. My nephew works at Prime Red. The best in the state. Can be one of the most expensive or the most reasonable, depending on the menu you use and the wine you order.ReplyCancel

  • JoycekkMay 28, 2010 - 7:38 am

    Thanks so much for doing this. If I could go ANYWHERE I would choose to go to Alan Wong’s in Hawaii. This is no small feat because I live in Kansas!!! My son and daughter-in-law gave us a gift certificate to eat there when we went there in 2007 and it’s been my favorite ever since!ReplyCancel

    Always nice to stay off the roads on a long weekend I think it is safer that way. And I am starting to enjoy eating at home, I find restaurant food so spicey lately & it seems my digestive system doesn’t agree with that.

    You are so generous. The prizes are fantastic! you do add fun too!
    i don’t have a favorite special place right now, because my favorite place closed down! Boo-hoo – that’s the life of a restaurant though!
    I did see Phyllis mentioned the oriental salad at Applebee’s and it reminded me of how much i love that too! So today i will say Applebees!

    My favorite place (one) is PF Chang (chinese). I just hope that we can go, the one we usually go to is always so busy. Tks for the chance to win the blog candy. Love your blog, I look forward to seeing you latest creations.ReplyCancel

  • Peggy LeeMay 28, 2010 - 8:57 am

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend Becca,

    I always look forward to your blog candy, more so beacuse you get us thinking about interesting things. I always like to read some of the responses as I scroll down to enter mine.
    My all time favorite resaurant that I love to be taken to is Bartalotta’s Lake Park Bistro. This resaurant overlooks Lake Michigan and I alway ask for a table by the windows. Not only is the food really good it comes with a wonderful view of the lake. I go there every year on my birthday.ReplyCancel

  • mary lukemanMay 28, 2010 - 8:58 am

    Thanks for another try at blog candy. One of my favorite places to eat out is Mc Gregor’s Tea Room in Pictou—- a45 minute drive away. The food is so great.

  • Ann i.May 28, 2010 - 8:59 am

    If someone asked me out for dinner and it was anywhere, I’d say any restaurant as long as it was in my favorite town up in Central California. I’d even be happy McD’s as long as it was there.. Our hope is to retire there one day.. Thanks for the chance to win such great candy!ReplyCancel

  • Monika/buzsyMay 28, 2010 - 9:06 am

    Yummy! That is a die that I’ve been wanting to get for sooo long! Thank you for the great give-away! I love a bunch of different places to eat, but right now I would love to go to Outback and have their spicy shrimp salad. :o) Enjoy your weekend!ReplyCancel

  • Kelly SasMay 28, 2010 - 9:09 am

    Enjoy your weekend with time to do what you would like. I know you want to know about my favorite place to be taken out to dinner, but I have to tell you about my plans for the weekend because I am so excited! Our oldest daughter lives on the other side of the country. Her husband was unemployed for over a year due to his company closing up this office. He got a job 5 weeks ago but had to move back to our state. So, our daughter is flying here and then her and her husband are coming to our lake house for the weekend!!! I am so happy and excited that they will be together and that they wanted to be with us! If you were taking me out I enjoy going to a little place in our home town for frog legs. They make the best frog legs – very little breading – and just the right seasoning so that you can enjoy the meat. Thanks for letting me share my excitement for the weekend!ReplyCancel

  • sheriMay 28, 2010 - 9:12 am

    Hey Becca! Thank you for purging your craft room, cause someone gets the benefits!
    I have a saying-any meal is good, if I do not have to cook it!! So, eating out is one oof my favorite things to do. I like to go to a local place called Canton Wok. They make the best lemon chicken and white sticky rice. They give you so much, that I eat the leftovers for 2 other meals. Have a good day :& weekend!ReplyCancel

    Thank you for your generosity and beautiful work. I found your blog thru Beate’s Fresh & Fun. Now I’m slowly browsing through your archives and admiring all of your creations. I love to eat anywhere outside of my own kitchen. But I don’t do so frequently because I do like to cook. So a special dinner for me and my husband would be OUTSIDE the kitchen and OUT in the dining room with him doing the cooking!ReplyCancel

    You are so generous! My fave place to eat is at a local sushi place called Mastaro Sushi. Yum! Have a great weekend! :)ReplyCancel

  • Pam SpradlinMay 28, 2010 - 9:24 am

    I am one very lucky girl…I have a husband, who after 31 years of marriage, decided that he wanted to learn to cook. Shortly after that, he completely took over the kitchen. I am happy to say that I have not stepped foot in a grocery store in 3 years. The best part…He even does the dishes and cleans up the kitchen. So when we go out, it is usually to a place that he picks so he can have the change of pace one needs when they do all the cooking and usually that is someplace that serves a steak.
    Love your blog candy…sure do appreciate that you are doing this for your readers.ReplyCancel

  • Arlene SMay 28, 2010 - 9:25 am

    Hi Becca. Happy Holiday. Hope you enjoy.

    My favorite dinner out would be ANY dinner out with my late husband.

    Oh Becca, just LOVE this spellbinder border, i always borrow my friends template to cut a lot. Your soldiers are very special so my thoughts are with you and your country. I would say a good steak is always my favourite and a seafood platter. We have a place here called Boston BBQ who serves over a 100 dishes, divine,,,thanks for this double blog opportunity again.ReplyCancel

  • SallyMay 28, 2010 - 9:27 am

    When I get the chance to go out for dinner…my favorite is to go for some authentic Chinese cuisine, and if its a lunch then its dim sum!

  • Kathy LaubenthalMay 28, 2010 - 9:31 am

    Hi Becca, for part of this holiday weekend I will be going to Disney in Orlando and crafting part of the time. What more could you ask for? As far as a place to eat it would be Bern’s Steakhouse in Tampa.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,

    This is my first time ever posting to a blog. I just couldn’t resist. I LOVE all your work and your tutorials are so easy to follow.

    If I were to be treated to dinner,well during these financial difficult times, I’d want to go to this great hamburger place in town. I can’t think of the name of it right now, but I just love a great hamburger. Of course steak & lobster is always great, but just not practical for me today.ReplyCancel

  • Becky BowmanMay 28, 2010 - 10:30 am

    PF Changs has my number today, especially the one in Hawaii, the open air atmosphere, is awesome. However, I’m on the mainlamd and happen to have PF Changs close by. I would start with the “crispy green beans” – oh yumm. Then would have “wok-charred beef” and “orange peel chicken”, with a side of brown rice. Oh my mouth is watering. or if it is a late afternoon, we would stick to the starter menu.

    Have a great & safe HolidayReplyCancel

  • MarcieMay 28, 2010 - 10:32 am

    Have a long time friend staying with us through the holidays and have been eating out off and on all week. This is a bad weekend to be out and about here in San Diego, CA, so we will be grilling steaks for the holiday right here in our backyard. We will have the entire family along with several extended family members over. It will be a real relaxing weekend with the family close at home. Sorry your plans were a bust. Hope you have a great weekend anyway. I will definitely be checking in to gather my words and see what else you have in store for us. Love these things. Just fun to play along.

  • SylviaMay 28, 2010 - 10:35 am

  • Pattie G.May 28, 2010 - 10:37 am

    Hi Grace. I’ll be off all weekend too, but then I have to work on Memorial Day! Have a great weekend! If I could go anywhere for dinner it would be G & M restaurant in Maryland. I live just over the PA border and I work in MD, but G & M makes the best crab cakes (my favorite)!ReplyCancel

  • Patsy BehrendtMay 28, 2010 - 10:41 am

    Sorry your Memorial Day plans are not working out! Here at Myrtle Beach we have Biker Rallies during this weekend so I try to stay close to home (great excuse to hide in my stamp room!!)
    I am not big on eating out and much prefer having a get together with friends and oysters roasting on the grill!! If I do go out, take me anywhere that has wonderful sushi with lots of Wasabi sauce!! I can eat Wasabi straight out of the bottle!! I put it on everything at home!
    Have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing what kind of fabulous goodies you put together while you are home! Thanks so much for offering goodies!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, my sister-in-law is coming to visit. We plan to cook out, golf, and just chill – hoping the pool is warm enough (I live in Michigan and we just opened the pool this past Monday). So, if I were going out to eat, I would love to go to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. But, this weekend, we are grilling – which means hubby will be doing the cooking – yahoo!

    Have a wonderful Memorial Holiday to you and yours!ReplyCancel

  • Heather xMay 28, 2010 - 10:46 am

    If I was being treated to dinner out, I would love to go to a posh resturant where you get serenaded..It would feel like a romantic night out with hubby, we have never had the money to go out to a resturant. Our idea of a treat we can afford is Macdonalds lol.

    Favorite place to eat…Fiesta Cancun! Authentic Mexican..our favorite is Fajitas Rancheras with beef, chicken, shrimp and bacon. Yummo!

    I know that you are probably a lot more organized than you say you are.
    I believe the style of a person’s cards reflects their personality and a lot about them. So… I am betting that you are very neat. At any rate I just had to say that. Now, if you saw my spot I craft in…
    Well, there are a lot of things I enjoy, and one of them being, after a day of chores and/or crafting I love going out for a nice dinner. One of my favorite restaurants is Garden Fresh–not a chain as my family and I are vegetarians. The food from this restaurant is not only vegetarian but vegan too. It is unbelievable what they can do with mushrooms!
    My other favorite would be a good Mexican restaurant or Indian or Japanese or Chinese or Thai or Vietnamese. I do tend to ramble.
    Sorry about your plans being nixed;sounds like you take things in stride though. We aren’t traveling either and (I just gotta say this) my baby is graduating from middle school today,so no travel plans.
    Hope your weekend is memorable.

Unfortunately, he leaves for Alaska Monday to get ready for salmon season.ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,

    Cold, Cloudy and Windy here in the “High Desert” of Southern Ca.
    Not much like Spring at all!!

    Your Blog Candy, could sure light up my life since the weather isn’t.

    I love Spellbinders and the frames are on my list!! :-)

    I love food, all kinds, so today I’d pick Mexican. Probably a small family resturant up here called, “Amy’s.” Not a very Spanish sounding name, but Oh, the food is glorious!!

    Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. God Bless our Verterans, those alive and fallen.

  • ReneeMay 28, 2010 - 11:44 am

    I proposed to my hubby because he’s such a great cook but western NC is one of the best in the country for BBQ. So, if HE wants a meal out, we go to 12 Bones which is the first place President Obama went when he arrived here for a short weekend vacation. I go to the location that used to be a gas station and the line always goes out the front door…it’s worth it!ReplyCancel

    Okay, favorite meal out is a very hard one because my hubby is such ana amazing cook that we rarely eat out. However, he refuses to learn how to make Sushi so it is a meal we CAN eat out. Yup, Sushi every time I get a choice :D Even better is we have lots of fabulous sushi places around Vancouver. When our Japanese clients come over for business they wanted to go eat Sushi here because it is better and cheaper than theirs in Japan. Okay, now I want some California Rolls!!!ReplyCancel

    We have a big NASCAR race in town ths weekend and the traffic is awful so we will be staying home. If we were going out, I would like to go to Kabuto…a Japanese hibache grill. The food there is wonderful and we love to watch the chef dazzle us with all the tricks.
    Hubby did surprise me and took me out to IHOP this morning. I love the Swedish Crepes with lingenberry butter. The best treat of all was that my son and dil came along with us and spent the morning with us. I so enjoy spending time with my kiddos!

    Thanks so much for the blog candy, darn it I missed the first word by 25 minutes, exactly what happened last time, oh well :)

    Oh my, favorite place to go for a treat is Red Robin. I don’t eat hamburgers and french fries any more since changing my diet 3 almost 4 years ago. So my treat is once every 4-5 months to go to Red Robin and have a juice burger and their awesome fries !!!!!

    Here is a special quote on this eve of Memorial Day weekend I found on the internet from Lee Greenwood,

    “And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free.
    And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.”

    Dear Becca, how sweet you are to give us all this great help and goodies too! Hope your hubby continues to do well in recovering from his surgery. My 89-year-old Mom had both her eyes done last year and she did great! So have full faith that your experience will turn out well. And thank you for the heads up on the Just Right catalog. I’ve ordered two! As to my favorite place to eat, when we are down at the beach (Newport, OR) I like to go to a small place called Local Ocean for seafood. Probably should not have told as it is a just a tiny place with only about a dozen tables or so. But all the seafood come froms local fishermen and you can buy fresh there to take home and cook too. My heart goes out to those fishermen in Louisiana and all who value the wildlife there!ReplyCancel

If my dh were to come home and bring food to me, I would want something from Swiss Chatlet! I love there chicken and there barbaque sauce is the best. Yes, that would be good right now!

    Hi Becca,

    I think i’d like to go to the french restaurant i found whilst on holiday in hamburg – the food that night was superb – wish i could remember the name of the restaurant.


  • Marilyn ClarkMay 28, 2010 - 1:38 pm

    Just got home from the doctor so I have missed the first word. My favorite restaurant is Thai Orchid in the Columbus, Ohio area. Your giveaway is great and some lucky person will win, good luck to all.
    Hope your dh is feeling better. Enjoy your weekend. God bless.ReplyCancel

  • DarsiMay 28, 2010 - 2:09 pm

    Thanks for your beautiful and inspiring blog and the generous giveaway! I have a lot of favorite restaurants, but one of my very favorites would have to be Macaroni Grill! Ha ha, I used to drive by this place all the time and wonder who would EVER want to eat there, something about their name just didn’t appeal to me! Well, jokes on me I LOVE that place and their bread is out of this world good!ReplyCancel

  • GloriaMay 28, 2010 - 2:15 pm

    When we go out locally, I like to go to Red Robin. Usually busy but they have athe best burgers! You can get a petite size for $1 less. It is not about the money, but the amount of food… I can’t eat that much. I usually take the bun off anyway. And that allows more room for their endless plank fries! Our kids give us gift certificates for Mother’s Day, birthdays, and Santa always has one in our stockings! Yum… that and movie tickets… great gifts for old folks. :-)ReplyCancel

  • Janice C. in NYMay 28, 2010 - 2:17 pm

    Happy Memorial Day Becca! You are so very talented, thanks for sharing your beautiful artwork with us.

    My favorite place to eat is Delmonico’s Steakhouse, an Italian reataurant. The Delcmonico steaks are great, and I love the veal Parm too.

    Thanks for the blog candy opportunity. Have a greeat weekend!!!ReplyCancel

    Don’t like eating out on holiday weekends but favorite place is Longhorns–they have a strawberry salad with citrus dressing, other great salads, steak and fried chicken; and sometimes top it off with chocolate stampede dessert.ReplyCancel

  • MarilynYMay 28, 2010 - 3:11 pm

    I admit it…..I love to eat!!! I’ve been told that I’m a darn good cook and could almost rival the best but I love having my meals prepped for me too. So I instinctively crave Italian food….so maybe I can persuade my gang to take me out for some this weekend. What a fun game.ReplyCancel

  • linda pattiMay 28, 2010 - 3:14 pm

    my favorite place to eat out is one of our local wineries. They have great food to accompany their wine.ReplyCancel

  • Carol FroehlichMay 28, 2010 - 3:17 pm

    My very favorite restaurant is the “Waterfront” which overlooks the Mississippi River in La Crosse, WI. Very pricy but the food is very exquisite and delicious!! My special man takes me there about once a year. We won’t be going over the Memorial Day weekend. I would much rather celebrate with a filet mignon, baked potato and veggies done on the grill. :)

    Thanks for the great opportunity to win more goodies!!ReplyCancel

  • Lori AragonMay 28, 2010 - 3:17 pm

    Another one of my favorite places to eat out is Johnny Carino’s – another yummy Italian Restaurant!!!


  • CindyMay 28, 2010 - 3:24 pm

    Next choice would be LaLa Grill. We go there before or after movies, or just whenever. Another “fresh” food type place. Bright, airy, and wonderful food. Their Thai Chicken Lollipops are wonderful!ReplyCancel

  • Martha NicholsonMay 28, 2010 - 3:37 pm

    Happy Memorial Day. I think it is so wonderful to live in a country that we have the right to say and be anything that we want. I love that we can honor the ones that keep us free and celebrate that we are the freeiest country in this world. And that God has given us the means to make ourselves great. I know it is not poltically correct to so call put God in anthing anymore. But it is might right as a free citizen in this country (USA) to worship God and thank him for everything I have. I never take for granted what he has done for me. Some may not want him as a part of our lives. But that is one freedom that anyone can take from us. God lets us beleive what we wish. No one can control what is in my mind or my heart. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday weekend. I look forward to more of your designs. I’ll be back for more.ReplyCancel

  • BettyMay 28, 2010 - 3:37 pm

    My hubby hates to eat out, so I rarely get to enjoy any restaurant! So, I don’t have a favorite. My favorite foods are cooked over a campfire! He does take me camping quite often.ReplyCancel

  • Martha NicholsonMay 28, 2010 - 3:40 pm

    I forgot to put what we are doing for the holidays. My husband is a pro-wrestler and he is doing benifit shows to make money for 2 charities. The Children Miracle Network and The Shriners Hospital in our local city. He loves doing for the kids. We usually make great money, but it seems to never be enough. So were spending it making money for charity.ReplyCancel

  • Jil LMay 28, 2010 - 3:40 pm

    I know what you’re going through. I watched Clean House & ended up remodeling my living room, dining room, kitchen & bathrooms. My house is so organized & everything is new. My hubby wasn’t thrilled, but he did all the work. I’m just glad I’m not a hoarder. If I don’t use it, I’ll sell it, even stamping stuff. It keeps me organized. Thanks for the chance at such great blog candy. JILReplyCancel

  • Val WMay 28, 2010 - 4:09 pm

    Hi Becca,
    We’ll be staying home for the holiday weekend. My husband has to work, so we have to be home. There’s plenty to do around here, so that’s ok. If I were going out for dinner, Panera Bread is always a favorite place. I love their you pick two deal, and usually pick a soup and a salad. I will try to collect the words, but I’m afraid I’ve already missed the first one. I am not able to get on the internet early in the day because of my job, so I only get on once a day after work. That usually cuts me out of the chance for these double play candies, because I don’t get the AM word.ReplyCancel

  • Charlene DahlbergMay 28, 2010 - 4:16 pm

  • janeyMay 28, 2010 - 4:27 pm

    Another wonderful restaurant that I love to be taken to is “Il Forno’s” in Goshen, IN. Mario prepares his pizza’s in his Brick Oven – and it’s perfect. We order pepperoni and pineapple and drizzle Balsamic vinegar over it and we think we are in heaven! Yes – I love quality pizza!ReplyCancel

  • SusanMay 28, 2010 - 4:36 pm

    Hello Becca,

    Thanks again for another chance at winning more great prizes but more importantly how is hubby coming along after his op and how are you keeping?

    I don’t dine out too often and living in Australia I don’t suppose you would be familiar with our restaurants but when the occassion arises I do like to go to a fish restaurant called Cicerello’s, it has a casual atmosphere with ocean views and you have the choice of eating your fish and chips from a plate or the paper they wrap them in,

    best wishes to you and hubby.


  • lindsayMay 28, 2010 - 4:39 pm

    As for my favorite place to eat out… Antonios Cucina , a local place with awesome bread and food which we visit for special occasions. We will be at home this weekend barbequing and then after church , I will be participating in the Memorial Day parade with my school on Sunday to honor those who fought and are fighting to maintain our freedom.Thanks to them all.ReplyCancel

    Hi! when I got engaged my fiancee took me to a beautiful little restaurant on Whidbey Island called Gordon’s. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, and all very reasonably priced. I have great memories from there so I would probably say I would like to go back there for a special date.


  • RebeccaMay 28, 2010 - 6:03 pm

    Hi Becca,

    This time around I think I’ll go with El Pollo Loco for their flame grilled chicken. Not that I’d really like to there………..but bringing it home and having dinner and a movie with my DH is a really nice treat.

    Looking forward to the next word.


  • Marge R.May 28, 2010 - 6:18 pm

    One of our favorite places is within 2 miles of our house in our little town, the Silver Spur at The Duke (yep, named for John Wayne) Golf Resort. John Wayne’s former ranch is just a few miles south of us here in AZ. We just love the ambience and food there. Normally a quiet place, unless they’re having a men’s golf tournament — LOL!!! They serve my fav salad, the Silver Spur w/chicken, goat cheese, and home made Balsamic Vinagrette dressing — yummm, wish I were there right now!!!

    Becca, the blog candy is amazing, but seriously your creative ideas are a treat in themselves. My favorite place to eat…just ONE? Oh ok….We have a place called the Cypress Inn. It sits right on the river. They serve these yummy little muffins along with yeast rolls. Their specialty is Fried Catfish and for lunch they serve this awsome chicken salad along with a plate of fresh fruit. But what I like most is the desert….Peanut Butter pie YUMMMMMMY! Not only do they have fabulous food but you also get an amazing view to enjoy. My son and his sweet wife took me there for mothers day. Amy my DIL and I couldn’t wait to get to dessert!LOLOL!

    Awww, I’ve missed the first word. But I check in daily so will still make my entries in the hope of my number being chosen for the wonderful blog candy. You are so very generous, a trait appreciated by everyone, I’m sure. I’d probably select The Crow’s Nest if I knew my host wanted a special place. It’s on the water just inside the jetty going to the Gulf of Mexico and the dining room is upstairs so everyone gets a good view; oh, and the food is excellent. If the invitation was an obligation that I didn’t think they owed, I’d probably suggest Taco Bell, which my DH and I visit fairly regularly.ReplyCancel

    My favorite restaurant is Maneros in Palm City, Florida. They used to be located in West Palm Beach where I lived for 32 years so I was able to eat there a few times a year. They have the best gorgonzola salad in the world along with wonderful steaks, ribs and seafood. Just writing about it makes me hungry. I live in Georgia now so I don’t get to go there very often; but when we go home to Florida you can be sure that is one place we visit even though it is 50 miles from where we visit family.

    Hi Becca, I hope you and your family have a safe and happy holiday! This weekend, our church has a “BIG” picnic and bar-b-que. Thousands of pounds of pork, mutton, chicken and burgoo, (a delicious, thick soup) will be served. So that’s where I’ll eat out. I also work the “country store”. It’s a huge booth with all kinds of hand crafted items. Everything from quilts to handbags, and tons of other cool stuff can be won for a quarter. It’s different every year depending on what’s donated. There are many many more booths with fun things to do, to entertain both the young and old. There are pony and carriage rides and live music, and a talent show for the finale. It’s so much fun to come together, to work and play and make it a success. I’ll see friends there, I haven’t seen in years. It’s a family affair, our home-coming picnic. It’s a big deal for our small town. Doesn’t it sound like fun! Thank you for the chance to win the terrific candy. You’re the BEST! Blessings!ReplyCancel

    My place to eat I think would be the Red Lobster. We went there few months back and gee they have been around forever but we had never gone before and loved it. Of course with the great pacific northwest seafood is the way to go.

    Have a great weekend.ReplyCancel

    I love eating out anywhere with good company, it’s a chance to unwind and not have to keep getting up to serve etc. I also like a nice dessert but don’t usually have room after the main course.ReplyCancel

    Thanks again for this giveaway. You are so generous!

    I love eating at the Inventions Restaurant in the Disneyland Hotel, Disneyland, Paris. I don’t know if you have the equivalent in Florida. The spread is fabulous, and though pricey, it’s an ‘eat all you can’ buffet. The little French rolls are so moreish!

    Feeling hungry now ;o)

    I took flowers to the cemetery and there were flags lining all the drives. They also put smaller flags on all veterans’ graves. It was an awesome sight.

    One of my favorite local restaurants is Lomeli’s Italian restaurant — they have very good food. It is not a large restaurant and most times there is a wait, but it is worth it.ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,

    the perfect re-inker palette sounds wonderful…now to see if there is anything similar here in Western Australia,

    I’ve been reading some of the responses to the favourite restaurants and all the talk of food is not helping my diet any, they all sound delicious and tempting,

    hope you are having a good weekend


  • Lori AragonMay 29, 2010 - 4:27 am

    You certainly are very creative… great idea for your distress inks : )

    Another of my favorite places for dinner is Marie Callendar’s. They have the best waldorf type salad and awesome corn bread!!!

    Hope your weekend is going great!

    Love and hugs ~

  • ColleenB.May 29, 2010 - 4:31 am

    Favorite Restaurant for breakfast and / or lunch, I would have to say ‘Our Place’. They do close at 3 in the afternoon but they have the best home cooked meals and the service is Fantastic. You have to get there early cause usually after 9AM you will have about a 20 – 30 minute wait to be seated.
    Oh, and they have the best desserts, of which are all homemade as well.
    Thank you again Becca for such a wonderful giveaway on this holiday weekend.

  • CherylMay 29, 2010 - 4:35 am

    Morning Becca. I work for Michaels so I appreciate all the Michaels tips.
    My second favorite place to eat is the Breakfast Buffet at the Grand Floridian Hotel at Disney. Mary Poppins and the Mad Hatter come and dine with us. It’s loads of fun!!
    Hugs Cheryl

    I used to like Olive Garden for an Italian restaurant, but when they took my favorite dish off their menu and then on top of that stopped serving their chocolate lasagna for dessert, I was finished with them. But, we found an even better Italian restaurant… even though it’s a chain restaurant, it just has a feel to me of a little independent, privately owned restaurant and the food is so much better than any other Italian restaurant I’ve tried. I love their lasagna or a dish they call “skilletini” (sp?) which, as it’s name suggests is served in a big iron skillet. But, of course, they have to have a great dessert to be a favorite of mine and they do… an Italian Chocloate Cake that is unlike any other restaurant chocolate cake I’ve ever had. So, that’s one place I might choose if someone is taking me to dinner.ReplyCancel

  • NolaMay 29, 2010 - 4:59 am

    well, today it’s off to downtown Chicago for the Soldier Field 10 mile run to cheer on our daughter. So food for the day will probably be hot dogs or hamburgers at the concession stands there.

    have a great Saturday!ReplyCancel

    I enjoy going to a chinese buffet that’s here in southern Ontario called the Mandarin. It’s a favorite of my 7 year old nephew too, and I love to take him out for lunch. :) I do love “real” chinese food, it’s been awhile since I’ve been able to get to a place that serves it.ReplyCancel

    A favorite of mine and many famous MN sports figures (like Twins Joe Mauer) is right in my neighborhood…it’s called The Nook and it’s just a hole in the wall bar but has the best burgers and fries…people stand outside the place for a chance to get a little “Nookie”. What a fun place!ReplyCancel

  • mbmitchellMay 29, 2010 - 6:15 am

    Good morning Becca
    My daughter in NH takes us to a place called “Browns” on the coastline. It is very casual – a huge room of picnic tables, but they have the most amazing seafood – fresh! My stomach growls just thinking of it. And of course the company is great also!ReplyCancel

  • Lisa MillerMay 29, 2010 - 6:40 am

    My next favorite place to eat is called Cactus Mexican restaurant. We would have to drive about an hour and a half to go to it though. So, I will still pick the food shack first.

    Have a great day!


  • DallaMay 29, 2010 - 6:46 am

    Thanks for a wonderful blog. I check in every day I can.
    Afav of mine is Meers in Lawton, Ok. From the outside it looks like a dump, just corrugated tin. Inside isn’t any better. All the tables have something under a leg to level them, and nothing matches. But the food! Hamburgers as large as a pie tin, fries that fill another tin. An order of ribs is the whole rack. For desert, a large bowl of homemade icecream. I’m on my way now.ReplyCancel

  • NancyMay 29, 2010 - 7:36 am

    My favorite place to eat out for years and years has been The Turtle Club in Fox, Alaska (near Fairbanks). They serve the best prime rib I have ever had and have a nice salad bar, also. Since I no longer live in Alaska we only feast on memories now. However, we always go back there whenever we go back “home.”ReplyCancel

Well one of my other favorite things to do going out to dinner. If someone was going to take me out I love cajun food and we have a place near our house call the Big Easy they make a meal called Bourbon Crawfish Tails with dirty rice it is really spicy but once you try it you will never eat crawfish another way.

  • ShirleyMay 29, 2010 - 8:52 am

    It’s a new day and a new comment. Another place I like to eat is in Missouri at Lambert’s cafe, the home of the throwed rolls. Yes, the throw the rolls to you instead of serving them in a basket. They have wonderful sorghum molasses to go with it. While you wait for your food, they pass around fried okra, beans and rolls. Your almost full by the time you get your meal.

    I think if someone were to take me out to eat I think it would be great to be with all my family (we are so spread out – different states) but to get together for a great BBQ, play games, visit, laugh and just enjoy the get together. That would be the perfect place for someone to take me.ReplyCancel

    I was smiling as I was reading some of the comments last night. Seems Olive Garden is a very popular place to eat. Given a choice, I”d say my husband would pick Olive Garden at least 8 out of 10 times. We both battle the “bulge”, so always get their unlimited soup, salad & breadsticks, but rarely a second helping of anything. It’s consistently good no matter which Olive Garden we go to. Always neat, clean, great service and reasonable price!ReplyCancel

    another fav is OLIVE GARDEN….YUMMY…love the breadsticks and never ending soup and salad! Happy & Safe Memorial Day weekend, Becca!ReplyCancel

  • CathyMay 29, 2010 - 10:49 am

    Since I am a widow, I would prefer to be asked over for dinner instead of going out. I eat out often since it is just easier than cooking for one. If they prefer to eat out I am very flexible and would agree to go where ever the group would like to go. We have several local restaurants the would be fine also. They are good food, located within a short distance and very reasonably priced. I am easy to get along with no matter what you have heard. ; )ReplyCancel

  • CorrieMay 29, 2010 - 10:50 am

    Another favorite place to go is closed now but when it was open Carnevalle’s was the best.ReplyCancel

  • Val WMay 29, 2010 - 10:53 am

    We like to go to Olive Garden too, but rarely get there because the closest one is an hour away. We usually order their soup and salad. It’s not so filling, and it’s always so good.ReplyCancel

    Darn, miss a couple of days and all kinds of things happen around here ! I’m too late for collecting the interesting !

    thanks for the chance !ReplyCancel

    Since this is a holiday weekend, “The Hole in Wall BBQ” is a wonderful for it’s bbq meats, the ribs – oh – well lets say I don’t share, they have a rub that is to die for. The ribs are not a goey mess, however they do have an assortment of sauces to add your own goey experience… oh the cornbread is always moist and ready for that honeybutter… the coleslaw is just right, not too much dressing.. Oh my is 9:00am and I’m ready for some ribs….ReplyCancel

    I love steak, so one of my favorite places to eat is “Big Horn Steak House”. I’m not sure if the chain exist in the US, but if it does, it’s definately a nice place to stop by. The last time me and my boyfriend were there I even got a big dessert for free because it was my birthday.. :)ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca
    Thank you for another fabulous blog candy. I am sure someone will be extremely happy to win!
    We have a German restaurant here in United Arab Emirates and they serve PORK! Being a Muslim country, pork is not that freely available. I love going there and that is my favourite restaurant it is called The Brauhaus, it is located in a hotel. It was soooo funny when they dicovered “swine flue”, all pork products were stopped in the UAE and this restaurant was forced to close for a while. Thank goodness it is open again.

    Hello – computer down this morning – no word!! Blah!!

    A meal that I would enjoy being treated to would be one from a little restaurant in Emma, IN. It’s a typical Amish settlement – probably has about 75 – 100 residents. There is an OLD general store that someone has refurbished – old style – and has created a eating place. Specials every night (except Sunday) and Wednesday is Swiss Steak special with homemade bread and, of course, real mashed potatoes and corn…..just the typical Amish food – and so yummy!ReplyCancel

  • Carol FroehlichMay 29, 2010 - 1:00 pm

    I love the chicken oriental salad served at – Applebee’s or Chili’s – I’m sorry, I cannot keep the two separated as to which serves what. In our location they are side-by-side and my memory is not as it should be. Actually, I think both serve this salad but I prefer one over the other; just don’t go often enough to know which is which. In my mind their menus and restaurant layout do not differentiate them from each other…maybe I should send their CEOs a letter. lol My entry today is a blatant attempt for another chance to win the blog candy…the icing on top of all the goodies you present on a daily basis.

    One of my favorite restaurants closed this past year. It was the Alpine Garden Grill, setup at a greenhouse, with a beautiful garden and fountain. They had very good food, Halibut or Salmon, steak or poultry dishes served with fresh veggies and herb sauces. It was always a spendy meal for the 2 of us so usually only for special splurge occasions like our anniversary or a birthday.ReplyCancel

    Our town doesn’t have any nice bike trails so my husband and I took a short road trip this morning to a town about 30 miles away where there are some nice trails. We rode (just guessing since we don’t have a pedometer) probably about 15-20 miles. That’s a lot for me since I haven’t ridden in probably 3 years. Anyway, we did one of my favorite things for lunch. We packed a few sandwiches and had a picnic on the edge of the river. We were very hungry after our ride, so anything would have tasted good and the company couldn’t have been any better. ;) It doesn’t have to cost a lot to be wonderful!ReplyCancel

  • GloriaMay 29, 2010 - 4:16 pm

    Hi Becca, hope you and hubby are enjoying your holiday! It is still raining hard here in Portland, OR. Course, our really dry season (yes, we have one) doesn’t start until the middle of July so rain this weekend is no surprise. When we want to go out to a really special place, with friends or family, we go to McGrath’s Fish House. They have other things than seafood so this is a good compromise and the prices are reasonable. It is usually very crowded and they, of course, serve fresh, caught in ocean off the Pacific Northwest, seafood. We also use the Seafood guide put out by many zoos and aquariums around the country for good and bad choices of seafood. Sadly, some are being over harvested or grown in “farms ” where the condicions are not palatable to the American tummy. If anyone is interested in such a guide, they should check with a zoo or aquarium website. I know Monterey Bay as a downloadable list; the Oregon Zoo too I think. There, I got in my pitch for conservation. I feel so upset about what is happening down in Louisana! Pray that Obama will keep his promise to help those folks and all those animals!ReplyCancel

    In our small town there is an amazing restaurant called Ty’s and Tails. It is very small and they only open certain nights and you usually need a reservation. The food is prepared when you order and is not like anything you would get at a regular restaurant. The maple glazed salmon is one of the best fish dinners ever and although they are well known for their sticky date pudding, nothing on the dessert menu will ever disappoint!ReplyCancel

I was hoping for a cookout with our kids but it’s suppose to be rainy and cold so we will wait until this rain stops!!!! My absolute favorite place that we go to for our anniversary is in Portland, Or at Saylor’s Steak house.

    Taking 3 kids out for dinner is a real challenge so we often get take-out. We will get chinese from Quality Foods here on Vancouver Island, BC. We get enough for dinner and there is usually lots left over for lunch the next day. There is no MSG and all made fresh on site. It costs a lot less than all of us going out and I don’t have to cook at all.
    Thanks for your inspiration.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Hope you are having a great day! I forget the name of the restaurant but it was such fun and the food was good. It is in Florida and you must walk out this long pier to get there. It is in the gulf of Mexico. The pelicans come and roost on the roof. There is a pier around it and the pelicans are friendly enough to touch. That would be a great place to have a meal.

    Hello again Becca!
    I have written about 2 of my favorite local restaurants but then thought–“if I could go anywhere-why not pick a couple of my hometown favorites?” So here goes: Pepe’s Pizza in New Haven Ct is the first. It has been serving “tomato pies” since the 1930’s. The only item on the menu is pizza and you can have it just about any way you like. The oven is coal fired and big enough to fit more than 30 lg pies at a time. The family brought them here from Italy when they imigrated and they are a tourist attraction all on their own. The doors open at 4 every day and a line starts forming outside around 3. The line is constant for several hours. If you are ever in CT you won’t want to miss it.ReplyCancel

  • PatMay 30, 2010 - 1:10 am

    For steaks, we usually go to either Hoffbrau or the Outback Steakhouse.ReplyCancel

  • LindaMay 30, 2010 - 1:30 am

    Hi Becca — A fun place I get to go to about once a year for brunch is The Reef in Long Beach — located very close to the Queen Mary. My daughter has taken me there several times for my birthday. Since my birthday is right before Christmas, the restaurant is always beautifully decorated. My daughter gets reservations with the same waiter each time — Augie. He only works on Sundays and sitting in his section is like getting a show along with your meal. We always have a wonderful time.ReplyCancel

  • CherylMay 30, 2010 - 2:24 am

    Morning Becca. I also love the food at Olive Garden. I have always loved pasta and fresh bread. Hugs and thanks again. CherylReplyCancel

  • GloriaMay 30, 2010 - 3:00 am

    Hi Becca, we went to another of our favorite places today… inexpensive, willing to split a meal, customize, etc. Ours is in a mall, it is Noodles&Co. Our favorite is the buttered noodles (oh, those callories!) with a grilled chicken breast. We split the noodles, got 2 different breast (Hubby’s was with parmazon cheese, mine was plain) and refillable drinks. Hope everyone is having a safe and sane holiday. Don’t forget the reason for this special day…. to honor those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.ReplyCancel

  • SusanMay 30, 2010 - 3:06 am

    Hello Becca,

    Went out for a drive this afternoon and couldn’t resist the temptaion of traditional fish and chips eaten straight from the paper…must confess they taste much nicer than the ones served on a platter,

  • mary stuartMay 30, 2010 - 6:19 am

    Hi Becca – our tradition for Father’s Day is to go for brunch at the Pier W – a local restaurant in Lakewood Oh (near Cleveland). The building juts out over Lake Erie offering a lovely view of downtown Cleveland and the Sunday regattas. The food is delicious – roast beef, salmon, Belgium waffles, and more – yummy! Lovely view, delicious food, my darling family – I’m looking forward to it!
    Turning out to be a beautiful sunny perfect weekend here! Sure hope your weather is lovely, too!ReplyCancel

  • RebeccaMay 30, 2010 - 7:56 am

    Wow, I’m running out of places to eat…………………..I think the Olive Garden is a good choice. The salad, soup and bread special is always a good choice. It’s all you can eat and there are lots of soups to choose from. Also, they are always introducing new items so it’s fun to try those too.

    Thanks Becca for your great hints and tips. The new “Girl” card is adorable. Perfect for a new baby as well. Ejoy the day……………..
    God Bless

  • Donna RinckelMay 30, 2010 - 7:59 am

    I am back to check for the word of the day (half day LOL!) but another favorite restaurant would be Macri’s.

    There’s a really good Mexican place here in town (well, just down the road in town), that I love call El Meskal. Cheap, but authentic Mexican food. Sometimes, that is where I want to to when someone else is paying.


  • Denise TrottierMay 30, 2010 - 8:30 am

    Hi Becca,
    A favorite place is at my son’s around the pool with my grandkids and my daughter at home visiting all of us from out of the province, barbecueing on a hot summer day…a real relaxed family gathering with all those I love close to me…what a treat…

I visit your blog daily and just cannot wait to see your cards and other projects to show. You are such a talented person. TFS! So on to the favorite place to dine. We have a place near us call the Big Easy it is all about cajun food which I love. They have a dish call Bourbon Crawfish Tails with dirty rice which is spicy and to die for! Here’s hoping hubby will take me there this weekend! Have a great holiday weekend.ReplyCancel

  • RufusMay 30, 2010 - 8:43 am

    Also love good Italian food! We’re lucky to have a couple of local places that are good and there’s always Olive Garden. Where do YOU like to eat??

  • Lisa SturgillMay 30, 2010 - 8:48 am

    Wow Becca,

    DELISH Blog candy!!! I have not been on the past week due to Graduation activities with my Daughter, we are so proud of her. I am also honoring my Son this weekend as he is serving in the AF. He may not be overseas, but is guarding “items” that are very important. I am so proud of him as well. I am blessed with 3 wonderful children, although they are all adults now, my oldest very happy in a relationship, and working.

    I think my favorite meal would have to be here at home, when my Hubby breaks out the BBQ pulled pork. He has perfected his rub and has a smoker, but to be honest, I love watching him “take” care of his boston butts, sometimes through out the night. I make the coleslaw, and we usually invite friends of ours, our Daughter, or family. It is always a great time, and everyone who has eaten his pulled pork always ask for more!

    I will give you a favorite restaurant, it is a local one here in Augusta called Fujiyamas, but we go for lunch and I get the Bento Box, Hubby gets the steak and shrimp hibachi, while my Daughter is the Sushi Chick! Sometimes we will order or favorite sushi roll which is called a “spyder roll” which is filled with a yummy fried soft shelled crab and some sort of sauce. The also have a ginger house dressing that is completely addictive.

    Have a very happy Memorial day weekend!!!! No surprise Husband is grilling, except Turkey burgers, and corn on the cob. I’m on Potato salad duty, which in the South, most people mash the potatoes!

    Crafty Hugs!

  • Val WMay 30, 2010 - 10:19 am

    Such a sweet little Tilda card today, just darling! It would seem I have a lot of “favorite” places to eat, because I keep thinking of more places. When we get to Milwaukee, WI we often go to a little restaurant near the university campus. It’s called Oakland Gyros, and as you can tell by the name, it’s specialty is gyros. They serve lots of other tasty Greek foods, but the gyros are sooo good. There is so much meat on them, that I always have to order an extra pita bread and take half the meat home for another meal. It’s great food, not outrageously priced, so it is a hit with the college kids too. They also serve a raspberry lemonade that really quenches your thirst. Makes me wish we were headed to Milwaukee this weekend!ReplyCancel

  • ColoradoMay 30, 2010 - 10:22 am

I look at all the stuff that you make every day and get inspired to come up with something of my own, as i don’t like to copy since it will either disapoint me that it wasnt like yours and since i want to be unique in my card making as well. so , keep up the great work !ReplyCancel

    Our neighbors we trade back forth over the year having each other for dinner, the summer time is the favorite, you get to eat outside without wearing tons of clothing. But my favorite meal is the BBQ Salmon that is freshly caught. We soak a cedar board the day before and the filet the salmon and then apply a rub of lemon pepper seasoning and brown sugar, the corn on the cob wrapped in foil with buterr, lime juice and clintro, the rest of the vegies will be cut into large pieces and then grilled in a basket. Dessert will be an almond pound cake with fresh friut of the season. The backyard is the bestest place to eat… with friends – bring your own drink, maybe a shanty or diet coke with a twist of lemon.ReplyCancel

We went for breakfast at a golf course on Maui, and we ate on the terrace overlooking the golf course, and the bay where the whales come to play in the warm waters. The whole thing was incredibly unforgettable, and I’ve been wanting to go back there ever since.

How wonderful. Enjoy company of Christian friends & the fun we can have!!! The bad thing was I missed the second word yesterday!!! boohoo That’s what I get for being gone!! What can I say.ReplyCancel

    I enjoy eating at Benihana’s because they cut my food into small pieces for me! ha ha

    It is true if I am eating chicken I like to cut it into pieces before i start eating. Nothing like someone doing it for you!

    I love the card you added today! ThanksReplyCancel

  • Robin WadeMay 30, 2010 - 12:49 pm

    For me it’s seafood!! I LOVE fresh seafood… especially lobster! Moving from MA to VA 5 years ago has made me miss it so much!! Locally, the best place to go for seafood is Red Lobster! DH and I only get to go a couple of times a year, but we definately enjoy it!ReplyCancel

  • PatiMay 30, 2010 - 1:17 pm

    Another fun day in blog-land! : ) Another one of my favorite restaurants is Red Robin. I like their salads, their different chicken burgers, their wraps, their strawberry lemonade, their milk shakes, …well, most of their stuff, everything I’ve tried I’ve liked. I usually have a hard time choosing the rare times we go there!
    Happy Weekend! Hope it’s beautiful there as here : )ReplyCancel

  • TinaHMay 30, 2010 - 1:37 pm

    This is a tough assignment, I am not big on going out to dinner. If I could go again, I would love to go to Apizza Scholl’s in Portland. Their pizza is fabulous, and it is the best I have ever had! Thanks again for a chance to win.ReplyCancel

    I think another great place for dinner would be Outback steak house the bloomin onion is ohhhh so good I love that and a nice chicken salad. Umm really nice.ReplyCancel

  • PamMay 30, 2010 - 1:57 pm

    Becca, I absolutely love the idea about the ink holder. It is so awesome. Seems to me, I am not totally sure but don’t reinkers act alot like watercolors in that if you just add water to them they rehydrate. So if they do dry out, just add water? Anyway, love the Girl Thing. Daugher is expecting our first grandchild in July and I can’t wait. Can imagine using this for a bunch of different girly things. Thanks for sharing and have a blessed holiday.ReplyCancel

  • Kim R.May 30, 2010 - 2:52 pm

    Hi Becca,
    What great creativity that God has blessed you with. Thank you for sharing that with us. A place that I enjoy eating at would be Panera Bread. And I think it is the atmosphere as much as the food. But time with friends makes any place enjoyable.

    Where would I choose for dinner? I wouldn’t care if I was treated to McDonalds~~just so I didn’t have to cook! lol But if it was really a special occasion I would say to a restaurant we have here in Prescott, Arizona (up in the mountains) that’s an old converted Victorian home that’s calledl The Rose. Beyond expensive but oh, so good.

  • Pat JandacekMay 30, 2010 - 4:02 pm

    I love the fish sandwich served at Rib City Grill and George enjoys their ribs so we treat ourselves every so often.

    When we feel like down home BBQ we head over to “Johnnie D’s.”

    You walk in and feel like you have been transported to the Louisianna Bayou. The BBQ is fantastic and the cornbread, greens, and fried pickles are mouth watering. The prices are good, the amount of food is generous and the staff are welcoming and friendly.

    The free peaunts while you wait are adictive as well.

    O.K. Now I’m hungry……………….where’s the fridge!! :-)


  • SandraMay 30, 2010 - 4:41 pm

    Super giveaway!!! If I got to choose wherever I wanted to eat, I’d choose the Melting Pot. I love fondue, but unfortunately my hubby does not so I’ve never actually eaten there. I’ve heard great things about it though. If hubby’s taking me out then we’d probably go to Carrabba’s.ReplyCancel

    We eat out way more than we should – another favorite take out place for us is Romano’s Macaroni Grill – we just adore the warm spinach salad and prosciutto and arugula pizza. It’s our go to dinner on busy weeknights when cooking is difficult.

    Hi Becca,

    First, I must say that I have been following you for the last while after stumbled upon your website. I have to tell you that you personally got me hooked on spellbinders! I have a Cricut expression, cuttlebug and all the other goodies and thought I had everything that I could ever want…until I saw your beautiful cards and projects! You are very gifted and I inspire to achieve your level of creativity.

    Now, this blog candy is all new to me. I have never left comments or replies on any website before, until now.

    If someone wanted to treat me to dinner (I hope it would be my husband) I would love to go to The Keg. We always enjoy their food!

    Thanks for sharing your ideas, tips and techniques!ReplyCancel

Althogh it’s an Italian restaurant, they are famous for their steaks and boy were they good. My favorite… the 4 oz. filets with Marsala sauce served over garlic smashed potatoes. Boy, were they good.

    Hi Becc, Happy Memorial Day everyone! Today we spent almost 10 hours going from cemetary to cemetary cleaning and putting flowers on 15 graves. Missed 6 which we will maybe do tomorrow or maybe when the weather is better because it is supposed to rain here in Portland, OR tomorrow. None of them are vetarans, which this holiday is really about. Anyway, for a late lunch we stopped at a favorite little hamburger joint that I have been eating at since I was in jr. high…. well, lets just say about around 55 years! The burgers are still just as good as they were when I was 15!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,

    Well one of my favorite breakfast places is Cracker Barrel. I love their potato casserole and their fried apples.

    Could be traveling it just seems good. Oh forgot to mention their sweet tea, one of my most favorite things in the world.

    Well, hope my number is selected.

    Will be writing soon :-)


  • GloriaMay 31, 2010 - 1:51 am

    Gee, Becca, I’m running out of favorites. So I guess I’ll have to give you a non-favorite. Olive Garden. The only thing I can eat there is the salad and bread sticks (yummy!). Everything else makes me sick, really. For some reason their food just doesn’t sit well on my tummy. However, it is one of my son’s family’s favorites so sometimes I have to go and just order the salad and breadsticks. The staff get really obnoxious about it sometimes and don’t want to bring me a plate for the big salad bowl course. But if I am paying for it separaetely, I don’t understand why I should not be able to eat with the rest of the family! Guess that makes it a double unfavorite. :-)ReplyCancel

  • LindaMay 31, 2010 - 2:14 am

    Happy Memorial Day!

    Another fun restaurant is Back Home in Lahaina. They even have live entertainment on certain nights — a band playing Hawaiian music, with diners joining in and doing the hula. Obviously the dancers are not beginners — they know how to hula.
    I usually get their teriyaki chicken sandwich and hubby likes the char sui chicken fried rice. We both get the Hawaiian ice tea and share a piece of haupia cheesecake for dessert. Yummers!!ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,

    Welcome to the start of a new week and a new month starting from midnight tonight…can’t believe we are almost halfway through the year, here in Australia will be the first day of winter tomorrow and boy is it cold already and seeing food is the main topic here I have decided to cook a curry tonight, another of my favourite dishes,

    It’s funny when my Mother was alive she would always ask what was for dinner and when I told her she would always say that was her favourite, I seem to recollect everything edible was my Mothers favourite…you don’r get any prizes for guessing who I take after,

    take care


  • MarcieMay 31, 2010 - 5:11 am

    Hi Becca,
    Have had a wonderful weekend so far. Lot’s of family around. Usually stay real close to home throught the holiday, but we did venture out this year because we had a very dear friend who is visiting from Arizona this year. He has terminal cancer but is quite the trooper. We took him to San Juan Capistrano and had dinner with my 85 yr old Mother-in-law at a local cafe there. Great visit and very good food. We will BBQ tonight with the entire family, and then we are meeting up with more friends the following morning for breakfast at a place called the Bread Basket in Alpine. Hope you and hubby have had a safe & wonderful weekend.

  • CherylMay 31, 2010 - 5:18 am

    Hi Becca. I don’t eat out very often. I would have to say the Outback Steakhouse has the best steak I have ever eaten. I used to live near Concord, Massachusetts. There were many small homey places to eat. I like the places that are run by families. The family bakeries are wonderful there too. The area I live in now, Central Florida, has only large restaurant chains. I really miss the family type atmosphere of the northern pubs and inns. I watch Guy Fieri and envy the way he travels all around and goes to all kinds of different places on the road. I have never been to New York, but it looks like they have wonderful bakeries and places to eat.

    A good steak dinner is always nice. I like the Outback and I have to admit that I’m also fond of their WallbyDarned drink! Hope that you’ve had a good weekend. God Bless the USA and her Armed Forces, past, present and future.

  • Teresa CMay 31, 2010 - 6:48 am

    One of our favorite restaurants just closed up after being in Smyrna DE for over 70 years. It was called Wayside Inn and the food and atmosphere was so nice! It was a favorite for a romantic dinner for an anniversary or birthday. But the days for the small business entrepreneur seems to be quickly disappearing. Thanks again for some wonderful blog candy and I really enjoy your cards!ReplyCancel

  • BarbaranneMay 31, 2010 - 6:49 am

    What a pretty pink card you posted yesterday! I love that flower border and the pretty bows.

    Chinese is always a great option for going out. Or sushi. We just saw a new sushi place in our town and my 8-year old daughter is excited to try that out.ReplyCancel

    One more I like is Buck’s, in Moab, Ut.

    the food is outstanding and the staff very friendly

  • mamajulieMay 31, 2010 - 7:16 am

    Great blog candy! If someone is taking me out I choose an old-fashioned fish fry at a VFW or fire house, where they cook the fish in an old drum barrel converted cooker and their families donate the sides and desserts. A real community feast!ReplyCancel

  • CindieMay 31, 2010 - 7:19 am

    Happy Memorial Day! If I was going out to eat today – I would want a picnic with hot dogs, hamburgers and potato salad! Since it is going to be HOT here in the Dallas, Tx area this afternoon, I think I’ll go for something air conditioned!

  • JeannieMay 31, 2010 - 7:24 am

    For my 1 comment for the final day 4…I love chinese food. My favorite has to be beef lo mein. I normally order take out but wouldn’t mind going out to eat at a local restaurant.

    Thanks Becca for the great blog candy giveaways and your excellent blog! I’m still going back through your blog day by day from the very beginning, so far i’m in sept of 2008. :)

    Again, Good luck to everyone!ReplyCancel

  • Paula KayMay 31, 2010 - 7:30 am

    Hi Becca, this is the final day, and I can hardly wait to see who wins. My favorite place to eat is at home. It is always better to have a home-cooked meal than to eat out. That’s my vote! But it is nice to go out and not have to cook occasionally. We like Cracker Barrel when we travel – love to shop and see all their goodies!ReplyCancel

  • Lou AnnMay 31, 2010 - 7:32 am

    Hi Becca,
    Just to let you know I have had a lot of fun this weekend collecting the words and playing along.
    This is the first time I have ever done something like this but it sure has been fun.
    Anyway we are going out tonight for dinner (yeah) we will be going for fish and chips at an amazing resturant at the beach.
    Hope your weekend turned out good.
    Thanks for keeping me entertained all weekend.ReplyCancel

    Happy Memorial Day! May God be with all the families who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and may He keep His hand of protection on our troops.
    Today, we are doing one of my favorite things of all. We are getting together with a small group of friends for a cookout. Mostly, we will just sit around togeter and chat. We will probably eat too much but when you re with close friends the calories don’t count right? Have a happy day! Ellie WernerReplyCancel

  • RebeccaMay 31, 2010 - 8:57 am

    Good Morning Becca,

    Happy Memorial Day. Let us never forget those who gave their lives so we may enjoy the freedom we have today. We take so much for granted and fail to remember we didn’t come by this easily.

    This time instead of a resturant I think a picnic in a park would be a favorite place to go. Surrounded by family, singing birds, a babbling brook and children’s laughter, a PBJ would be a feast!!

    Thanks for all you do Becca, to enrich our crafting experience..

    God Bless,

  • Becky EMay 31, 2010 - 8:57 am

    We have an excellent restaurant called The Library in our area. It’s a terrific place for fine dining. featuring French and American gourmet fare. We really enjoy our “infrequent” visits there.ReplyCancel

  • Val WMay 31, 2010 - 9:00 am

    Happy Memorial Day! I’m sitting here thinking about what this day is all about, and feeling so thankful to all who’ve served our country.
    I didn’t want to forget to stop and tell of another favorite place to eat. When we want Italian food, we like to go to a place called Ala Roma. The serve so many delicious Italian dishes: pastas, paninis, calzones, in addition to the best thin crust pizza we’ve come across. Their salads are so big that my husband and I now order just one and split it. As more and more people discover this place, I can see that it won’t be long before they’ll need to expand.
    Have a wonderful day!ReplyCancel

  • Charlotte RussoMay 31, 2010 - 9:01 am

    Hello Again!
    Happy Memorial Day. We had such a wonderful service yesterday to honor the men and women who have given their lives so that we can enjoy our freedom — and, prayed for our troops and their families.
    Actually enjoyed lunch out on Saturday w/ some dear friends from church. We ate at Cracker Barrell, and I so liked browsing through their store while waiting for our table. What a fun place!ReplyCancel

  • Marge R.May 31, 2010 - 9:02 am

    I think for this holiday it’s most fitting to eat bbq in our own back yard with the red, white & blue American flag flowing in the breeze to remind us how special our freedom truly is and remember all those who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep it so. Thanks Becca for helping make our Memorial Day weekend more fun and thanks to all those unsung heros and their families around the world who give up so much so that we can be free to live in this great country! God Bless America and keep us safe!!!ReplyCancel

    I think I’d like my husband to take me out to Papouli’s, a little Greek restaurant here in San Antonio. I love the garden pita with grilled chicken, black olives, lettuce, tomato & feta. It also has an olive-oil based sauce one can pour over the whole thing. Yum!ReplyCancel

    I have to say that my husband and I actually like eating at Denny’s. It is nice to have someone else cook you breakfast.


  • Trisha WhiteMay 31, 2010 - 9:36 am

    There’s always that special place from your childhood that sticks in your mind and mine is from my freshman year in highschool. I remember Roake’s Hot Dogs. A place out of the 50’s along the side of the road where you parked and walked up to the window and ordered. They were slow (this was not a fast food joint) but of, they were good! Homemade chili for the dogs was the best!ReplyCancel

  • SuziMay 31, 2010 - 9:36 am

    Today I will enjoy a tri-tip barbeque with family at home (after a trip to Michael’s to catch their big sale!). It will be a fun, relaxing time. The only place I’d rather be would be in London having scones with clotted cream and jam with dear friends there.ReplyCancel

  • ColleenB.May 31, 2010 - 9:38 am

    Just popped in to say Hello and of course to collect the word for this morning.
    Right now Anyplace sounds good as long as I don’t have to cook here at home; even a fast-food place would set with me just fine; something that is quick and easy.
    Hope Everyone is enjoying this holiday.

    We enjoy eating at a local Greek/Italian restaurant, Georgio’s. The atmosphere is good, noise level is manageable so that we can talk and dh can hear! My fav dish is Eggplant Parmesan – they get the eggplant so crispy yet done on the inside. Along with the angel hair pasta and their signature Marinara sauce, they serve a bottomless salad bowl and garlic breadsticks. Add a glass of vino and – – – – I’m out the door!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • PatMay 31, 2010 - 10:15 am

What a great way to celebrate a holiday. We are so thankful for the men & women who serve our country & have even given their lives for our freedom. Thank you

  • Becky BowmanMay 31, 2010 - 10:26 am

    Thinking of the past years, when the weather has been dry (Pacific Northwest) and we’ve had a first real big BBQ of season, we usually have grilled pizza, it is an all day event. (I sent my husband and a friend to cooking class to learn how to make it for the friends birthday present – they were the only two males in the class) My husband is dough boy and he makes the dough up early in the day to raise and then they chopped the veggies, and grilled the assorted meats. Usually we have people bring their favorite topping to grill and then I supply the fresh mozzeralla and or goat cheese, then you get to design your own pizza once the dough has been turned, we end up making way too many pizza’s and they are yummy, with sides of Greek Salad (this was included in the class), fresh fruit salad and we have wonderful time.

    Thanks Becca letting us share our favorite food haunts and bring back memories of sharing time with friends and family while eating….. blog candy looks yummie!ReplyCancel

  • Michelle H.May 31, 2010 - 10:27 am

    Whenever we travel, I like to find a ‘non-chain’ pizza joint. I find these are usually quaint little places with wonderful pizzas that have been able to compete and stay in business against the giants in the industry. Also, we like to find some of the places which have been featured on the program “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” when we can find them. Such good places to eat!ReplyCancel

I like to eat out and love every kind of food, as long as I don’t have to cook. I especailly love good seafood and always order when I can.

    Wow, thinking of eating dinner out has been a challenge. For the last answer, I will say Olive Garden. LOVE their salad(the dressing just makes it) and they offer something for everyone. Plus, they have an awesome “birthday song” they sing when it is someone’s birthday – very fun!

  • ColoradoMay 31, 2010 - 12:22 pm

    Hmmm… last day for a favorite restaurant… I can’t believe I’m having trouble coming up with a 4th one. I’d really love to say that I’d enjoy a wonderful meal in a dark, romantic restaurant… but since I have a degenerative retinal disease and at this point besides being legally blind in the daylight, I’m pretty much totally night blind, so in dimly lit places I just don’t see much of anything… so unfortunately I can’t do the dark restaurant thing and enjoy it. So, I guess for my last pick I’ll just pick something simple like Chili’s. They’ve really re-done their menu in the past year, I think. I was never really impressed with them until trying their ribs a few months back. We’ve gone back a few times since then and every dish I’ve tried has really been great food. So, for a nice reasonably priced meal these days, one place I’d choose would be Chili’s.ReplyCancel

  • Carlos HaunMay 31, 2010 - 12:22 pm

    Happy Memorial Day, Becca! Just enjoying the day making pasta salad for our cookout. Reading a book and playing with our chocolate lab dog! Thank you for the opportunities to try at this awesome blog candy! ~Amy S.~ReplyCancel

  • Linda SimpsonMay 31, 2010 - 2:42 pm

    Ruby Tuesday’s is my choice today. I love their food but have not been able to go there lately. Thanks for offering such good candy. I love your cards, they are always awesome!ReplyCancel

  • Donna RinckelMay 31, 2010 - 2:52 pm

    Our favorite lately has been TGI Friday’s. They usually have a coupon that we can use and my husband loves their chicken and shrimp dinner. Have a lovely Monday!ReplyCancel

    I like Red Lobster. I can always find something good to eat!ReplyCancel

  • Sylvia ThorpeMay 31, 2010 - 3:26 pm

    The food that I’ve recently been turned on to is Korean food. My daughter lived there for 2 years and it is delicious. Again, thanks for the opportunity to win and for the joy of your artwork.ReplyCancel

    My last entry before the drawing, and I’ll mention Mama Leone’s and their clams linguine, a favorite dish of mine. I get the entree while George will order the veal parmesan patty appetizer. Naturally he has to sit there and watch me while I finish my dinner, long after he’s finished his! But he’s never seemed to mind and I do let him know how much I enjoy it. lol I want you to know your blog also brings me great enjoyment…quite often my mouth waters when I see your beautiful pieces!ReplyCancel

  • DebbieMay 31, 2010 - 3:42 pm

    Happy Memorial Day! I would pick The Melting Pot as a place to go with a good friend. It’s fun, casual and perfect for visiting and eating! Hoping that the number picked will be one of mine – lol.ReplyCancel

  • CindyMay 31, 2010 - 3:43 pm

    Last entry ~ home – and we’re ready for this afternoon. Dad made his potato salad. Try as I may, mine never turns out like his. And I made my “gourmet” burgers. They’ve been assemble and “chilling” since this morning, soaking in all those wonderful flavors. Now they just need to be cooked. YUM. And, I made enough for leftovers, and these taste even better the next day because all the flavors have melded together beautifully. Happy Memorial Day. I hope everyone took a few minutes out of their day to remember those we’ve lost and those who continue to serve.ReplyCancel

  • Paula KayMay 31, 2010 - 3:50 pm

    Time is nearly up for this blog candy. Sure hope I am a winner. Today is Memorial Day. I ate at Olive Garden with 12 more of my stamping friends for lunch. It was a fun time.ReplyCancel

  • Michelle H.May 31, 2010 - 4:29 pm

    Come to think of it, any place where I don’t have to prepare, cook or clean up is a GREAT place to eat, especially with loved ones. It is hard, however, to beat the Olive Garden’s soup ‘N sandwich special. Their Pasta Fazoule is wonderful!ReplyCancel

  • Shirley BMay 31, 2010 - 5:04 pm

    I am getting ready to embark on a 5 week holiday so a home cooked meal will be most welcome. I have enjoyed looking through the comments and will have to try some of the restaurant’s mentioned.ReplyCancel

  • CarolMay 31, 2010 - 5:27 pm

    Hi Becca! Amazing projects, as always!! Another restaurant choice would be a local “real” Mexican food restaurant called Luchita’s. Very good food and sevice!ReplyCancel

  • yvonneMay 31, 2010 - 5:48 pm

    Tonite is our favorite backyard cookout. Burgers and baked beans. Been a while so it is extra good. Beats the cost of eating out, but…ReplyCancel

  • Jean McGeeMay 31, 2010 - 5:55 pm

    Last day, last chance. Another favorite restaurant is also in our town and that is Ede’s. It has the best bacon wrapped pork loin served with a sweet potato and a nice soup and salad bar. They are even willing to split the order for my husband and I – and there is enough for the two of us. YUM!!!

  • AnneMay 31, 2010 - 6:10 pm

    Dinner at any of the Champneys health spas in the UK is a great experience. Their buffet lunches are pretty good too.

    Hope you’ve had a good weekend.

  • CyndeeMay 31, 2010 - 6:11 pm

    Outback and Carrabba’s are at the top of our favorites list. I never get tired of orderin the Outback Special or the (Chicken) Polla Rosa Maria.ReplyCancel

  • Tanja SMay 31, 2010 - 6:14 pm

    Hi Becca, I have the 8 words (yay). One last place I’d like to eat – any fancy seafood restaurant by the sea, would be great. Don’t know any by name as they are a bit out of my price range!
    Thanks for a chance to win such generous blog candy, TanjaReplyCancel

  • Susan SlaterMay 31, 2010 - 6:16 pm

    happy memorial day weekend. I’d like to go to a local place called Back When. It’s a lovely little place that has old tables, chairs and pictures.ReplyCancel

  • Kim R.May 31, 2010 - 7:30 pm

    Happy Memorial Day!
    If someone were to take me out to eat, I would like to go to a local Chinese restaurant. No. 1 Schezun. The food is good and tha atmosphere is fun. Thank you for the opportunity to win the blog candy. BlessingsReplyCancel

  • michelleMay 31, 2010 - 7:39 pm

  • Renee WatkinsMay 31, 2010 - 7:55 pm

    Hi Becca,

    Got one more favorite restaurant hubby and I go to. It’s Mitchell’s Fish Market. I have not gotten anything there that has not been good. I especially like their spinach salad tht has apples and a tangy/sweet sauce. Yum-my.

    If you come to Cincy we can have lunch there.

    Take care. Hope you had a safe and happy Memorial Day.


  • DebraMay 31, 2010 - 8:28 pm

    Well, it’s Monday night and the last word has been posted .. I look at my list and I’ve tried hard to play along but only have 6 of them! Alas, I cannot keep up with you! Regardless, thanks for the chance to win. Will you list your favorite restaurants too?
    Another I can think of is Montana’s – food is good but service lately has been so slow that it’s hard to take the kids there!ReplyCancel

  • Jo4HimMay 31, 2010 - 8:41 pm

    Praise God for our veterans! Thanks for offering the blog candy. Another place we like to eat at is a local Japanese restaurant.ReplyCancel

  • Darlene CastorMay 31, 2010 - 8:49 pm

    Yes I am also grateful for those who gave their lives for my freedom and those who still serve this great country today! May God bless them!
    And now…my absolutely favorite place to eat is….drum roll please…my Mothers house!!ReplyCancel

  • DebiMay 31, 2010 - 9:03 pm

    I hope you’ve had a good Memorial Day! One of my favorite places to eat is MY KITCHEN. My husband and I both enjoy cooking and sharing that time with each other, as well as entertaining guests. He does a lot of the prep work and I “throw it together”. We both test and add the special ingredients that make it special ordered to our tastes. Thanks for your great designs.ReplyCancel

  • JohnaMay 31, 2010 - 9:12 pm

    The SteakSmith. I’ve been fortunate to go a couple of times and it is heavenly. You’d think steak – but i choose shrimp.ReplyCancel

  • DebraKMay 31, 2010 - 9:29 pm

    My hubby and I like to go to Millers Dutch Kitchen. Homemade cooking is the best! But, I really have been craving the French fries and dip at The Distillery in Savanah, GA. They soak them in beer overnight before they deep fry them the next day. (no trace of alcohol taste, though). I am not a big fan of deep fried food, but these are the best!ReplyCancel

  • sallieMay 31, 2010 - 9:33 pm

    I still love Cracker Barrel – the shopping, the decor and the foodReplyCancel

  • Lori AragonMay 31, 2010 - 9:37 pm

    For my last comment, I want to thank you for letting us play and have fun : ) I’ve collected all the words (i think) so… pick me! pick me! lol!

    One more place I enjoy eating out is … and I can’t believe I didn’t think of it sooner… is IHOP! I can eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch or dinner : ) It’s all good!

    Love and blessings ~

  • SusanMay 31, 2010 - 9:45 pm

    Hello Becca and followers,

    Welcome to the first day of June and our first day of winter, the past few weeks have been so cold that I’m wishing it was our summer again which you ladies in America should be enjoying,

    Have a lovely day everyone and take care


  • Cathie LemonMay 31, 2010 - 9:52 pm

    Hi Becca,

    I hope my American neighbours are enjoying your holiday weekend. We just had our long weekend last week in Canada.

    Now, if someone was treating me to dinner I would love to go to The Keg. Always a great meal.

    Happy day to all!


  • SheriMay 31, 2010 - 10:20 pm

    Of course I forgot to leave a comment every day but I tried to leave one as often as I could. We had burgers on the grill and they were wonderful so I guess my dh was my favorite cook this weekend. So yummy :)ReplyCancel

  • Linda FeldenkraisMay 31, 2010 - 10:35 pm

    I love any outdoor place with great music, I think it makes the meal more enjoyable. Thanks so much…ReplyCancel

  • Jenny BatchelorMay 31, 2010 - 11:38 pm

    I love reading the responses – isn’t it fun! If I wasn’t choosing a fav. restaurant, then I would definitely have a barbecue on the banks of the Murray River and enjoy the sun, fresh air, good friends and family and the beauty of God’s creation all around me.ReplyCancel

  • NancyMay 31, 2010 - 11:53 pm

    Red Robin has a special menu for people like me with food allergies so I eat there sometimes when I am away from home all day.ReplyCancel

  • GloriaJune 1, 2010 - 2:08 am

    Oh wow, how could I forget the Cracker Barrel! We love the home-cooked style of their meals, and the shopping is so much fun, even if you are only looking! We don’t have any Cracker Barrels in Oregon so we have to lookf or them when we travel. Our loss….ReplyCancel

  • PollyJune 1, 2010 - 7:13 am

    My “fast food” favorite pick has to be Chipoltle….I love their stuff and the servings are so large I can eat 2 meals out of their one!ReplyCancel

  • CathieJune 1, 2010 - 7:19 am

    Hi kBecca,

    I told you in my last comment that I would love to be treated to The Keg restaurant for a special dinner however, my husband surprised me last night after work with 2 luscious beef tenderion steaks. Between the two of us we made a delicious supper with lots of fresh veggies. HUM, HUM, HUM!

    Well, it”s back to the grind for most so have a happy Turesday.


  • Patty W.June 1, 2010 - 7:32 am

    Our local Asian restaurant is called The super buffet. Oh, the food there is super. If you go away from there hungry, it’s your own fault. Memorial day is a day for gratitude and reverence, for me to remember all the service men and women who have fought and died around the world so that we can be free. And they still are. Oh I pray for Peace everyday and beg others to do the same. Just last Thursday my 19 year old cousin was injured badly by a road side bomb. They think he will be OK, with much healing time. But another soldier with him lost his legs. Please pray for them and all the soldiers in harms way. Thanks for a chance to win. Blessings!ReplyCancel

  • teelaJune 1, 2010 - 7:43 am

    Becca, can’t wait til you post the winner, my fingers are crossed. Just wanted to say thank you for your blog and by always sharing the “word” ….blessings for a GREAT 1st week of June!ReplyCancel

  • CorrieJune 1, 2010 - 9:54 am

    Thanks for the chance to win Becca, I love your blog you are a very talented person and I have learned so much from you. When going out for dinner DH loves Boston Pizza and so does my three year old, since I told you where I love to go I thought I would share the family favorite (2 against 1) lol.ReplyCancel

  • Jane TJune 1, 2010 - 12:03 pm

    Red Lobster is where I would go especially if I could order anything I wanted.ReplyCancel

  • SusanJune 1, 2010 - 12:11 pm

    Hello Becca,

    reading all these messages here has made me think about the time when I was just a kid and dining out was something only the rich folk could afford, today even the poorest of families manage to squeeze in a take away,

    I can remember the first time my Mam took me to a cafeteria and I had a dinner it was a real treat, and silly as it sounds what was not a favourite meal at home soon became a favourite when dining out simply because it had been served up in a restaurant…in other words everything has become my favourite if someone else has cooked it.

    take care love SusanReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,

    so many comments here I’m wondering do you ever get the time to read them all? you could do with a secretary to get through this lot,

    hope you are enjoying the start to the new month and continue to show us your beautiful creations

    best wishes


  • Margaret ThompsonJune 11, 2010 - 10:05 pm

    Hope all is well with your husband and that he is doing fine now.
    Thank you or another blog candy although I never won any one’s but it does give me a chance to enter and to say I like your work.ReplyCancel

  • dorothyAugust 7, 2010 - 2:09 pm

    Becca, I just love your website and all the beautiful things you do with Spellbinders. I started buying the medallions because of a card I had seen on your site using the lotus pendant. Your cards really are works of magic and beauty. You definitely are on my top list of blogs to visit as often as I can.
    If I were to be invited out to dinner I would ask for sushi.

    I am a retired critical care nurse of 25 years, had to retire at age 45 because of my own medical problems. I miss it a lot but now I occassionally volunteer at the lovely hospital gift shop.

    I have a small home based business making custom and original handmade greeting cards. Everyone is different so there is no assembly line cards here.

    Thank you for offering this wonderful blog candy. I NEVER win and since I am facing blindness(need urgent surgery) and need urgent tests for a possible C diagnosis I surely could use a pick me up right now…………hugs to you and to the winners on your blog…………dorothy in BC(Canada) by the seaReplyCancel
