Saturday Small Talk

Another Saturday. I just adore these summer days. Yesterday, Bob and I spent our day picking blueberries, poking around the garden, and enjoying the relatively cool temperatures. Ah summer. Today, we’re off to Traverse City to hang out with some friends. We might go hiking, we might go beaching, we might do neither. We’ll see where the wind blows us.

If blueberries are in season where you live, try this blueberry galette by Ruth Reichl. It look delicious!

I want to try Emily’s corn chowder. If you haven’t been over to visit lately, her commentary on their first few weeks of marriage is a riot!

Bonavita inspired me to try baby back ribs this summer. Want to come for dinner?

And another blueberry recipe: Blueberry Mojito. You’re welcome.

Happy Saturday, friends!

I’m sitting here, still snuggled in bed, looking out our window at the snow clinging to the evergreens. This is what Saturday mornings are all about. Pretty soon here, there will be pancakes to eat, some projects to work on, and then we’re taking to the woods with our snowshoes. Glorious day!

Last weekend in the great, white northland, we made pancakes on the griddle and flipped them with this lovely spatula. I’m ordering one. Today, probably.

Happy Saturday!

This is my first two day weekend since the beginning of June. I kid not. And I can’t wait! The fiance is in town (yay!), and we intend to make and eat a lot of really great food, go paddle boarding, and make an appearance at a family reunion. A good weekend all the way around,.
