Things that are making me happy this week

Smashed avocado and cheddar cheese on whole wheat walnut bread.

A pile of poufs. All my sample sizes.

My first stories in Do It Yourself magazine. You should get yourself a copy!

Honey from a local beekeeper. I love pretty much anything that comes in a canning jar.

Fresh mint growing on the front porch.

Actually I planted a whole box of herbs. Something has already munched on them, but I’m not giving up! Funny how my basil is droopy, but my cilantro is super healthy.

I also love the funky tree in our front yard. I just think it has personality.

And finally, a second batch of flapjacks. This time I put parchment paper in my pan and they popped right out.

….OK, I’ll admit it. I’m getting a little sucked into the Royal Wedding, too. I would basically have to get up in the middle of the night to watch it live here, so maybe I’ll have to catch a re-run.

    My mom told me that Joseph is DVRing the Royal Wedding so that he and Una can watch it together. He even mentioned getting Una a tiara…I mean it is the Royal Wedding…the most important wedding of all time. Ha!

    Darrell and I ate local honey that some one gave him last week and it was wonderful. We had it with everything from coffee to strawberries.
