Farm Fresh & a Recipe

Along my little store walk this weekend...

Morning glories met me with their blooms running along
the way... friendly looking vines, whimsically weaving
throughout the old picket fence.
One of my favorites, the Morning Glory

Farm Fresh Eggs from town
Love being able to walk five minutes
to get whatever we need for
or dinner!

Plus it's fantastic exercise, walking for your meal!

We made a healthy, delicious pasta this weekend
and guess what?  Oui, it's French!

Nutty Pasta made by moi

I'm loving French Food at Home
with Laura Calder (and her set kitchen in Canada!)

Here's the recipe for

 (She used lemon peel on the show, so I used
Meyer lemon instead of orange as listed on recipe link
and it was delicious)

And I had my very first canneles from
Downtown Bakery this weekend
and then I found the recipe on Laura's web-recipes site
It was delicious... see?

Hope your week is sweet and healthy!

Happiness to you,

Beautiful pix Tracie! I went to my booth today and then took pictures of barns on the way home. Fun times! I think I could print a book on barns as many as there are in this area!!

A pleasant walk into town to pick up fresh ingredients for dinner...Lucky California Girl! Went out to the country for a decorating job yesterday and forgot my 'bonus' dozen of fresh eggs! I'm still bummed, ha ~ xoRoberta

Yummy, Bon Appetite! I'm going to have to try it...Marcia

You are so lucky Tracie! This would be such a pleasure if I could walk to town for fresh food. I am sure you have also read 'French Women Don't Get Fat', but that was what I loved...that in France you walk to the market daily for your food and prepare it that day.
Soon I will be able to enjoy things from the garden I guess I'm through wining now, hehe.
This really looks delish and I think you are blessed for sure! Ahhh, a market within walking makes me want to move.

Living in the suburbs of Dallas...there is no walking anywhere. I grew up in a small town and we walked every where. I envy you!
I'm going to have to try that recipe out on Cat Daddy. It looks like the perfect summer meal.
