Entries in Morgantown (9)


New Semester

A snowy new semester is underway at WVU. Before that, I spent a little time going to events at West Virginia Wesleyan College's residency for their MFA program. So a few pictures to start our new year!


Happy 4th





To celebrate a friend's "thirty-fun" birthday, we dined at Hill & Hollow in Morgantown at the Seneca Center. H&H sports a lengthy drink menu--something for everyone--and an inventive menu. Birthday Girl even got a special bread pudding with a candle to wish with dessert.

Not only was the food tasty, but the service was incredible. Really made the evening (although Birthday Girl might say the finely aged scotch made the evening, but who's keeping track?).



It's been a busy fall, but Saturday, Dominique, Matt, and I took some time out to grill for the WVU-TCU game (Go Mountaineers!). Luckily both the food and the game turned out the way we wanted. 

We pattied up the burgers with onion and cheese. Matt loves onions, so his is loaded!We made BBQ chicken along with the burgers. We also had some veggies, promise!Dominique was decked out for game day. As my Dad texted later, "Dominique is a Mountaineer." That's his highest compliment.Gelsey the Golden hung out in the grass while we grilled, taking it all in with a grin. After WVU won, we celebrated with this coconut cream pie that Dominique baked. She makes the BEST pies!
