I don't know about you, but it has been really H~O~T here! It has already been in the low 90's and the humidity is at 100%. It makes for a most uncomfortable morning and evening walk!
I've been working in my garden doing the usual weeding and cutting back some of my plants that have grown so large they are taking over the garden. I spent the better part of yesterday washing the front porch down while husband edged around our flower garden (we like a natural edge and that means that at least once a month we have to show the weeds who's boss LOL). While husband was edging, I took a tumble off the ladder and ended up in my flower garden. Thankfully, I was lucky and escaped with only a few minor scratches and bruises on my arm. The fact that I didn't break any bones is amazing to me! LOL I did have to remove some damaged stalks from my flowers though which made me extremely unhappy! :-(.
I do have an exciting new website to share with all of you. For all of you who love to cook and are interested in new and different recipes as well as in quirky and helpful kitchen tools Provisions 52 is wonderful! This link is specifically for their shop Food 52 and this one Food 52 Recipes for recipes. You can send in your recipes to share and they have contests for the best recipes. I recently tried one of their recipes for Cheddar & Black Pepper Cornbread by Vera Obias and it was wonderful. You can find the recipe here: Vera Obias' Cheddar and Black Pepper Cornbread. It has a sweet and yet salty taste which complements the cornbread. Sugar is added to the batter and sea salt and pepper sprinkled on top of the batter which has been brushed with heavy cream. This is not a lo-cal recipe LOL!
