Another awesome four days at the Snake River Rv park. We arrived on Thursday, September 5 and returned home on September 9. Very stormy on Thursday night – heavy rain and some wind. I understand that Nampa got hit really hard with high winds and large hail. Some farmers are suffering a loss of produce. And then it cleared off and the weather was cool and very clear. The evening sunsets were awesome and I have some photos here of the sunsets.
Good food and friends. We were there with the Birds of Prey Good Sam Club, which was a lot of fun and it was good to talk to the folks and interact with them. A good meal or two is always a great way to get to know the folks. We did not go hungry! Lots of frood and you will see some here.
Gina did another great job in organizing the Craft Fair, which this year included some awesome food booths, including the Cacicia’s Old World Sicilian Foods. I have also added some more businesses in the sidebar. New place for finding RV parts and maintenance in Marsing, Idaho. Welders, food trucks and artists. Enjoy these photos and Left-Click any of them to see them enlarged. Cheers!!
Robin and Buddy at our site. “The Beast” is in the background.
Buddy is full of energy and is enjoying himself. He had a good weekend.
And then there is Jigger, Gina’s hound. Always alert.
Gina and Jigger.
Some of the ladies got together to make pin-wheels out of coke cans and/or V8 cans. Here Janet shows Robin, Carlee and Mistee how to make one.
Robin made this one and it spins nicely in the wind.
But wait. Can’t be all fun and excitement. One must also eat. Here is what we had. Enjoy!
Cacicia’s Old World Sicilian Foods. If I were rating this on the Foodie Blog, it would be 4 Star food. Great flavors. You can find a link to them in the sidebar.
Here is some of their history taken directly from their website.
Entri Come Amici, Vada Come Famiglia
Cacicia’s (Kah-She-Shuhs) is the passion of Shane & Michelle Anderson and family. Shane began his love of cooking early as a child in his grandmother’s kitchen. A strong and talented woman, his grandmother Nonna taught him the secrets of authentic Sicilian family recipes that have been passed down for over a hundred years. Nonna would cook for the whole family and penned her own cookbook in the early 50′s. In honor of her and their heritage, Shane carries on the tradition and a dream. A dream to focus on innovation and creating the healthiest and highest quality food fare by marrying amazing family recipes with a forward thinking model on how to share delicious food and create a unique dining experience. Shane and Michelle proudly support and work with local growers and Idaho businesses, building a sustainable model for a new culture of unbelievably fresh and flavorful home cooked meals from our beautiful truck.
Sicilian family sizes are larger than typical and anyone familiar with the culture knows we can eat! So our portions are BIG and our prices are GREAT! Let us share our family’s tradition of cooking delicious, fresh and colorful food for the people we love. Look for our food truck Rosalina at your neighborhood Farmer’s Markets or locate us at any day we are set up with our Google Map Locator and Directions!

Come as friends, leave as family
From the Food Truck, Nana’s Spaghetti. Full of flavor and great fresh made pasta. Yummy!
Also from the truck, Rubino Pork Sandwich. More great taste.
It was cool so we made soup. Not bad, but not the best.
Robin made this good Chocolate Pie to snack on. We did!
For the group Pot Luck, we made this Corn Tart. I still like Corn Pie better. Hard to separate oneself from tradition.
The Pot Luck food line. There is always plenty of food at these events. We eat well.
Here is one plate. I’m not saying whose plate this is.
Really good Pork and Chicken Tamales from the Tamale Lady at the Fair. Fresh made. Hard to beat.
Some of the booths at the fair.
Good breakfast treats and hamburgers from this vendor.
And of course we have to congratulate the BSU Broncos on their victory over University of Tennessee – Martin team over the weekend – 63 – 14. Go Broncos!
Glad to meet Mistee, Tom and Carlee McClintick. They are new to the group. See Tom’s card and Carlee’s card in the sidebar.
