Ticket To Ride

Ticket to Ride

My husband purchased the game Ticket to Ride last month. We had friends of ours over on Canada Day for a BBQ celebration. While the children ran inside and out, played lego, watched a movie and basically entertained themselves, the adults played this game. It seemed pretty complicated when DH started reading us the instructions but once you start playing, it’s easy, fun and addictive. During the month of July, we were able to get together with friends three times for a meal, fellowship and of course our game, switching up who hosted.

The other night we had a wonderful evening with the same friends. Chloe baked a blueberry pie (with help of course!). Our crust turned out great; I always use the same pie crust recipe but the I tried the Betty Crocker pie filling recipe and it wasn’t anything special. I guess I’m still on the hunt for just the right recipe.

We also made some pudding filled tarts for those of us (me!) who are trying to lose weight and still want to indulge. For these I cheated and bought Tenderflake frozen tarts and then made fat free chocolate pudding {we also made some lemon ones) and topped it with the light cool whip. Two nicely filled tarts for 5 Points seems pretty good, except that I ate 4 (two while John and I made them and two during the party) so it ended up being 10 points but it was a special night so I guess that’s allowed.

Anyway if you are looking for a fun board game that will entertain adults and children alike {and help you learn geography if it’s not your strong suit}, go look up Ticket to Ride. We have the North America version and our friends have the Europe version so it’s neat to get to switch it up.

We’re off to visit my parents for a week. I can’t believe it’s August already!!

  1. That does sound like a fun game, we are slowing building up our game collection, so I’ll have to keep a lookout for that one. 🙂

    We went blueberry picking yesterday and I froze most of them, but left one basket full for eating and I was going to make a treat with some as well. Not many are left though!! Fresh blueberries are delicious!!

    As for blueberry pie filling, my mom use to make a blueberry pie which called for a combination of fresh and cooked blueberries. It was really good, but I don’t have the cookbook anymore that the recipe was in.

    Have a blessed week!!
