Most often it is the little things that add sweetness to life. I just need to be on the lookout more often for them!
These lavender lemon shortbread cookies were such a sweet treat! I forgot to add a sprinkle of granulated sugar on the tops of these. The next time I made them, I added it and it does add a really nice touch! I think it would make a perfect tea cookie.
Fresh zucchini and Bok Choy from the garden!
We love ♥love♥ love♥ stir fry for dinner and it was an extra special treat when it was made with some fresh ingredients from the garden!
The tomatoes are starting to ripen! The tomatoes are a special blessing this year because Abbie grew the plants from seeds. The plants are bigger than any we have had before and there are lots of tomatoes to be enjoyed!
We have played SO many games of croquet this summer and it fills our backyard with so much fun and laughter! My husband thinks we need a new croquet set and he is right, but I think this one looks rustic and I like that. If we do find a new one for a good price, we will keep using this one too and set up an even longer course and it will allow more people to play! Even more fun!
Italian night at our outside “home cafe”! How fun this was!
On the menu:
Stuffed pasta shells
Green salad with Italian dressing
Sparkling grape juice
Homemade apple pie ~ this was an extra treat as we had apples from our tree that needed to be processed!
It is such a blessing that so much joy can be found right here at home!
I hope this is a blessed week for you!
Drop by and say hello if you have a chance ~ I’d love to hear about the sweet and simple things you’ve been enjoying!
