090713 Date Day Saturday & some scrappy Joy
Remember these little ladies?
Well, someone has come through & started the cycle - you go, gurlz!
This morning found us on the road to Lansing to Horrock's Farm Market
Fresh green beans, lettuce, zucchini, yellow squash, cabbage, tomatoes to freeze, plums (to dry into prunes), peaches to freeze, some Yoder's cream cheese & sour cream (to make smoked fish spread - yummo), more canned peaches & pickled baby beets, the absolute BEST fresh squeezed orange juice I have ever tasted (and I lived in Florida!) - always a terrific deal & a tasty haul!
Saw this beauty in a yard on our way to lunch - made a U-turn to get a closer look.
Definitely will consider adding this to BampaLand in the back yard!
Lunchtime... as first timers at King of the Grill we got a nibble of EVERY meat they serve!
Slow smoked chicken breast MELTS in your mouth - seriously - no chewing needed!
The brisket was so succulent I am spoiled for it forever from anywhere else.
DH fave was the flank steak - smoked to perfection with apple wood... divine.
Some of the reviews dissed their side dishes, but the chicken & dumplings was utterly delicious.
We got 2 pounds of meat to go - hello, Sunday dinner :~D
On to Uncle John's Cider Mill in St. John's.
Fresh cider anyone?
(Frankly, if it didn't smell SOOOO sweet in here, this would be disgusting!)
Fresh donuts, anyone? So moist, cakey & light...
DH was trying the pumpkin & apple at the same time!
Beautiful vista of the orchards.
Home to get those tomatoes in the freezer...
And how to end another perfect day? Get scrappy!
Used my September CKC kit "You Go, Girl!" for the current Whimsical Musings challenge #101 to scrap something you learned. My lesson this week? "Joy is a child with a bubble machine."
This machine makes the most gorgeous bubbles!
Until next week - enjoy the everyday in your own little corner of the world.
