The Weekend . . .

Ah, the weekend arrives, a long weekend here in the states, and I am eager for it to begin. Bring on the sunshine, the leisure, the freedom and time for long walks with my dogs. Perhaps time to make the above meringue dessert – doesn’t it look delicious?

After the lawn has been mowed, the house cleaned and the work week put behind us, what is better than to just be, just enjoy our loved one’s company, celebrate and appreciate all that is going well. This week on the blog, readers made this post their favorite, but this post was a very close second.

With farmers’ markets beginning to burst with fresh produce and spring flowers, I can’t wait to peruse all of the offerings. Perhaps peonies will be found and certainly some fresh vegetables – lettuce, radishes and who knows what else.

In the meantime, here are a few links and articles you might enjoy reading or visiting:

  1. This post is about the weekend, filled with family and food, and I love it! I’m planning on being in the kitchen much of the time. Please say a prayer for our troops and their families.
