We will have rain all weekend, and then hopefully sun on Monday.

I love this!
Hopefully Monday will look like this on the cape.

  1. I like that you posted a link to an article that says drinking coffee is good for you :). You know I support that! Yummy recipes. I want that broccoli salad. I'm making a strawberry shortcake this weekend...but in more of a bar form. Hopefully it turns out!

  2. loved the frozen banana post from Irvin :) i might actually head to the cape on sunday- have a few friends running the half in hyannis! but really, my takeaway from this, is that i'm craving peaches. so i can make that shortcake...

  3. I liked the link to "Six Hidden Health Benefits of Cherries", especially sour cherries, but I blow the first one of burning belly fat as my favorite use of them is Sour Cherry Crumb Pie. :-) I ate my first local strawberries of the season earlier this week. :-) We leave for Iceland and then Greenland on Tuesday. Enjoy the holiday weekend.

  4. Have a wonderful long weekend and hope it's filled with some R & R time!

    Love the links, as always. And that crumble bar (last pic of yours)...YES!

  5. We have a little knick knack of that weather thing with a rock tied to a little rope. ;)

    Yay, love cherries. Thanks for the conversion chart. I'm always trying to figure things out like that.

  6. The blueberry shortcake and lobster BLT have me intrigued.

  7. I love your links! They are so informative and I am so glad you post them. I loved reading about the healthy fruits and sunshine. I wish I could get more sun year round! Just another reason to move to California!

  8. Man- all those salads! THey look fabulous. Thank you for the links as well.

    Your stone thing cracked me up.... noreaster... gone.


I love your comments!
