Good day all, and a beautiful one it is here in our little corner of the world.
I do hope you all had a special 4th in what ever way you chose to celebrate. We started out by going to the Parade in our little city of Anacortes. It was delightful as usual, with all of the kids on their bikes, horses, local businesses and the likes and flags, flags, flags, we loved it.
I made the Pavlova, as you can see below. I have more practice to do and a new recipe to use next time. The chickens were ready to help with the taste test as soon as I put it on the table.
Here is the photo that my Mr. took...Great shot, honey!
I have been doing a bit of a clean out of my cookbooks and must admit, having a hard time parting with some of them. There is no choice, as space is running out and I keep getting new ones, so some must go.
To make it easier, I decided to give some away. Below is Martha's Baking book that I have not used, just looked some things up for reference. It is in great shape so I am sending in off in the mail to one of you.
I put the names of all who commented on my last post, into a hat and came up with Heather from Vintage Grey. Congratulations Heather, if you would email me your info, I will get it right off to you. If you have it or don't care to, that is alright too...We can just choose another name.
The garden is calling my name....Actually, the chickens are pointing out that the wild greens are ready to be harvested for their culinary enjoyment. Off I go then..
Have a nice day my friends! xo
