little Indiana Weekly Recap 10/15/2012 — 10/20/2012

It’s easy to miss a little Indiana article here and there. I do update twice a day, every day! But have no fear, the weekly recap is here!

Wowza–what a week! little Indiana and family traveled to teeny tiny Mount Ayr to see Jerry Zimmerman, aka Mr. Freeze, in action. Hubs and I spent a fantastic evening out at Bonge’s Tavern–which included duck and amazing homemade items you won’t believe. There was also pizza (isn’t there usually pizza?), Indiana antiques, and plenty more! It was an incredible week spent exploring small towns.

I had to fit in baking up a batch of Dark Chocolate Orange Cookies and some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones too. Yum!

If you think this week was loads of fun, just wait until you see what is in store for next week!
