Restaurant Outing: 442 Soccer Bar

We ventured out the for the Brazil game last week wanting to be surrounded by others who enjoy watching the World Cup.  We went to 442 Soccer Bar on 1739 SE Hawthorne.

This bar is full of soccer memorabilia, TV’s and fans. They have a full menu of European food, particularly Bosnian.  I had the Sudjuk and Kajmak which is made on their house specialty bread called lupina.   This is a sandwich with  Imported spicy Bosnian sausage and a  creamy cheese spread.  Was delicious.

The whole atmosphere for this bar is laid back and full off soccer spirit.   We had a great time chatting with other fans and watching a really good game. Even if you are not a soccer fan this place is worth checking out just for the food alone.

Estate Sale Find

My find this week at estate sales was a white milk glass Pyrex bowl.  I also pictured some of my refrigerator ware because they are my favorite. They are great for leftovers and stack well in the fridge or cupboard.  Pyrex holds up great, lasts for years and is better for you than plastic containers.

Monday Musings….

We love to find new things or interesting takes on ideas,. Here is our five favorite things of the week….

This Succulent Treasure Candy Box is a great gift idea for someone who loves plants.

I have been looking at homemade water fountains for my yard.  I have been wanting to buy one but not spend the money.  These look like good solutions.  My favorite is the teapot one.

This Food Jar would be great for my teenage daughter who does not want hot lunch from the school. She could take her own from home with this jar that keeps food hot for 8 hours.

Here are some Easy Homemade Pest Control Recipes for your gardens.

I have a couple of the these Vintage Caddy Barware sets but ran across this one, loving it would be fun to put on table at a barbecue with ice tea.
