how was your weekend? ours was quick. i've requested a rewind, so far no dice.
the sun was shining and the farmers' market was brimming with produce and funny people to watch.
after church yesterday our little family enjoyed an afternoon at a favorite park.
elijah took f o r e v e r falling asleep last night. i have not requested a re-do on that.
so, here we be. a fresh new week. how about a five-o-rite post?!
as summer is nearing its end, i thought i'd share a few delicious looking things to cheer us up!
i think this would even make a great breakfast, don't you ;)
for several years as i was growing up, a sweet farmer friend, mr. reuben, would bring us buckets and buckets of peaches. that was near heaven. actual heaven came on hot and sticky mississippi nights, at mr. reuben's house. he'd call us to come over, we'd walk down the dark little street as a family. once at the quaint home, we'd pig out on the most amazing homemade peach ice cream and talk and laugh with reuben and "aunt" helen. sometimes their grandsons would be there to play with. these memories of summer are some of my favorites.
fresh corn, tomato, arugula. amen.
now, i usually don't trust baked fries. but these look like they'd make me pretty happy.
zucchini is one of my favorite things god created. my mama had a larger than life harvest one year.
she kept serving us pies, cobblers and whatever. chuckling all the while.
what we thought were apples and peaches were zucchini! who knew?!
my mama is one silly, sneaky lady.
have you ever been surprised by zucchini?
oh wait, maybe blackberries are my favorite thing god made.
a simple treat i love is fresh blackberries in a shallow pool of whole milk with sugar sprinkled on.
these bars look tasty for sure!
what favorite finds have crossed your path lately?
