Reading Terminal

I found a new scrapbook challenge blog, Lasting Memories Layout Challenges, and I am super excited because all they do is layouts!  No cards!  (Sorry to my card making buddies out there, but not a big fan of creating cards)

The challenge was to create a layout of a guilty pleasure - Food & Drink.  Food and drink?  Hello!  Did someone look at my scrapbooks?  One of the reasons I love to travel is trying new culinary delights and I usually photograph it.

When I lived in Philadelphia, I was a regular at Reading Terminal Market.  This historic market has dozens and dozens of restaurants, bakeries, grocers and more.  Italian, Indian, Asian, Amish, Irish and so many more.  Every time my sister visited me in Philly, we had to make a trip to Reading Terminal so that she could get the world famous Beef Brisket sandwich (I don't eat meat, but I take her word that it was delicious because the line would be wrapped around and around).   She always got one to eat on site and at least one to take back to VA. I personally loved Termini
Brothers, the Italian bakery, along with the Amish pretzels, the chocolate chip cookies dipped in chocolate, the fresh produce - and well just about everything the market has to offer.  I do miss it.

Look at that delicious grilled cheese from Molly Malone's (using goat cheese and beets - oh so tasty).  And yes we bought that cake from Termini Brother, it was an orange cake with a perfect glaze.

For my page I used a collection from We R Memory Keepers that I got at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $4!  Bargain!  (In my high-pitched singing voice).

Next blog - martinis!  Thanks for the inspiration Lasting Memories, I'm getting pages done!
