Weekend Photos

Just a few quick shots from my point and shoot this weekend. Saturday was a great day spent getting ready for father's day and taking a nice ride down SC Hwy. 25 to Edgefield to pick up some treats.

Tomorrow's Father's Day so I am hosting my dad and grandad, along with the rest of the family for Father's Day lunch. I drove out to Edgefield, SC today to two of my favorite farm stands to pick up some treats for tomorrow including delicious peaches and tomatoes. I'll have photos soon, but until then, here's the menu:
Roasted Chicken with White Wine Sauce
Mashed Potatoes
Sauteed Summer Squash
Fresh Green Beans
Sliced Tomatoes
Sweet Tea
Mama Jeannette's Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Icing
Fresh Peaches and/or Blackberries with Cream

I'm getting hungry already! If anyone wants recipes, please let me know. I'll be happy to share.

Tomato City

It's 'Tomato City' in my back yard these days! I started with a bunch of seeds that ended in only 1 seedling. So I started over with several more seedlings and tried out my luck with two Topsy Turvies and now my tomatoes are nearly ripe. I'm so excited! I'm also hoping that this summer I'll have enough of a harvest to try to make my own tomato and marinara sauce.Just another reason why summertime is the best!
