I love Saturday mornings in the Spring. Promise fills the air as I walk downtown to visit my favorite bakery Bread Craft to purchase over-sized pecan sticky buns and almond croissants. http://breadcraftbakery.com/
Continuing my walk along the city market…
Love these heart-shaped wild bird seed treats to hang in my garden.
Rolling Meadows Farm has the most colorful succulents. I can always find interesting plants at their booth on the market… the plant pictured on the right above is a “Frizzle Sizzle” plant (Albuca spiralis). Tightly curled leaves on short stems that arise from an underground bulb, this plant loves the sun!
Mushrooms are Mother Nature’s work of art…from Shady Spring Farm.
Love this whimsical bird house!
We are getting ready to remodel our kitchen so we started packing up dishes on Saturday. Our kitty “George Gershwin” felt the need to personally inspect our work. Here he is checking out the empty buffet. Curious cat!
I am trying to figure out how to prepare meals for the next 6 weeks without a kitchen. We plan to use our outdoor grill for some meals. I recently discovered Fresh Market’s “Little Big Meals”. A different meal is offered every week or so –
The meal I purchased included 4 gourmet hamburger patties with brioche buns, cheese slices, cut up fresh fruit and garlic and black pepper potato puffs. Easily served the three people and I can cook the entire meal on our grill.
I found this recipe contest which is perfect for the grill and might keep me occupied while our kitchen is being demolished…http://www.grilledcheeseacademy.com/contest
My bubbly friend treated us to a bottle of Laurent-Perrier this weekend! This lovely brut bubbly consists of 45% chardonnay, 40% pinot noir, and 15% pinot meunier grapes. Made by the same champagne house that brings us the beautiful Grand Siècle champagne. Fresh and lemony. It was the perfect ending to a fabulous Spring day.
