Panera took their Tortilla Soup off the menu. I live on it. Only 5 WW points and absolutely delightful. Please bring it back, Panera. Garden Vegetable with Pesto is just not the same...
Some of our dearest friends have also been taken off the menu- of our social calendar. We are hoping they hurry back, too.
The weather here is stifling hot. Snow cones are a necessity. Coconut and Strawberry Cheesecake are my current faves. Wonder if I can try all the flavors before Fall.
This picture reminds me so much of the 70's. It's awkwardly wonderful.
Honey Cinnamon Pretzels at Mellow Mushroom. Served hot. Crazy delicious.
Roasted Vegetable Salad. Croque Monsieur sandwiches. Scones. Croissants.
Not only was the food delicious but I loved their blackboard. If I had one like this (below) perhaps I would be motivated to plan better and cook more often.
Ballet workshops. She doesn't want me to watch. My heart aches but I still sneak pictures when I can.:)
Precious friends. You can't buy them at the store. They are a gift, pure and simple.
Finally got to see Brave. We really liked it but I'm at the point in my life where I completely sympathized with the Mom. I must be getting old.
It's going to be a trilogy!
We finally got a Fresh Market. Even my husband is excited- I think more so than me. We have been frequenting the baked goods. The cupcakes are unreal. Katie has already asked for them for her birthday, instead of a cake. I have my eye on the sunflowers (below).
I can't seem to stay away. I do believe the lemons are calling my name.
I will be purchasing steamed shrimp in the near future. With Old Bay seasoning. Ina and I will get together to make her famous cocktail sauce. (Sad that this hot weather hasn't dulled my appetite.)
Giddy over a grocery store. Yep, I'm getting old(er). But that's ok.
Found my old Country Home magazines. Why in the world did they stop publishing it? Reading them is just as good as any comfort food.
I loved Cottage Living, too. So sad it's days are over.
Snookie, our cat, guards the front door. More than usual. He wants to play with these little sweet peas. Not on my watch, Mister.
We have grape and cherry tomatoes coming out our ears. Someday I will learn to can. In the meantime these two will try something else.
I can't get over the colors that God has created. Even if you don't like tomatoes, you must appreciate their gorgeous, red hue. Stunning.
A road side stand.
Homegrown, organic tomatoes.
Darling little girls.
It was SO hot that I made them come inside. I didn't want them to end up looking like tomatoes!
Perhaps they can sell Zucchini bread in the Fall.:)
