I hope you had a wonderful weekend. It was such a fun one here because the kids and I traveled to my Mom's old hometown for a family reunion. It was bittersweet because it was also a celebration of my Aunt's life. My cousins brought picture boards of their Mom and I brought the scrapbook I worked on. Folks poured over it...sharing more stories and lots of laughs! We also visited the local fair after our day in the park. I won a prize for Annie at a game! But she wasn't with me at that moment so I gave it to a cousin. Lol I had wonderful dinner with my cousins around my age and we had so much fun catching up after all this time. We also went antiquing and visited a local war memorial and found my Grandpa and my Uncles' names on it.
Ruby sure missed us, though, and it's always nice to be home too. 💕

ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
Since it's mainly Annie and I, there is so much less formal cooking going on to really share a weekly menu right now. So instead I will try to share a recipe here each week.
I don't have a recipe to share per se this week - but on our way home from the trip I picked up some really yummy bread at a bakery where we stopped. I got a wild rice onion and cheddar one, and a loaf of cardamom bread. I'm going to make grilled sandwiches with the wild rice one. And french toast with berries with the cardamom loaf.
I also had my thrive box come and I got this unique spread this time and it's actually very good. Really kind of weird but tasty. However, I love coffee flavored things:
TO RELAX THIS WEEK I WILL:
walk Ruby, sit out on the deck and read magazines in the sunshine, do lunch with a gf, hang out with my kids
TIPS OR SOMETHING TO SHARE:
FROM THE CAMERA:
Such a nice time with family and I love how quaint mainstreet is in the hometown my Mom grew up in. So cute! I collect depression era pottery and I got a vase for myself, and one for my son's new home, when we shopped at the antique store. That way we both have something from St. Charles (my Mom's original hometown).
I like being lighter blonde for summer, but the first few days after I get it done I am platinum! Lol
