Yesterday was kind of overcast, but everything was just so green. I had to get a few groceries, so I took my favorite Route 5 along the Connecticut River to go shopping. The above is a corn field that is just coming up. I love the farm in the distance and the mountains that are across the river into New Hampshire.
I saw some purple Iris’s that were really pretty along the way.
Then there is a neat grape field that someone is growing. I bet they make their own wine from those grapes just like they do in Napa Valley or Europe.
I don’t know what the above flower bush is, but it looked pretty next to a huge stone. I saw it next to the purple Iris’s.
I got a new King Arthur Flour catalog yesterday. I love that catalog. It had a recipe for Coconut Cream pie and also accessories for making a good pie in it.
I like their bundt pans. You can find anything for baking in their store and on line.
The catalog had the Kitchen Aid attachment for a Spiralizer which is neat. Then the Produce keepers are a nice find.
There was also a recipe for Key Lime Whoopie Pies which sounds like a fun recipe.
There’s a recipe for Key Lime Cheesecake on the King Arthur website. That sounds really good, also.
I love clothes and I found a new app called Stylebook. It’s new to me, anyways. You can organize your closet with it. You can track style inspirations, plan what to wear in advance, create outfits with your own clothes and shop thousands of favorite retailers.
I like the look of the above outdoor table. I have a crystal candle holder almost like the ones they have on that table. I like the white flowers idea in the crystal vase with the white table cloth.
I’d like the above table cloth on an outdoor table, also. It just looks very Napa Valley or French to me. I saw it on the April Cornwell website.
I went to the Food Co-op yesterday and bought some Kale. I like a kale salad with lemon dressing.
I also made up a recipe for a healthy soup that actually came out surprisingly good. I used organic vegetable broth from the Food Co-op. I started the base by sauteeing celery, onion and mushrooms. Then I added the broth, northern beans and kale. For flavor I used some thyme and Mrs. Dash because I am cutting down on salt. Then a little fresh ground pepper.
And that’s my interests for Monday.
