I secretly lifted( Not so secretly) a small amount of produce to make my dinner!

And purchased some of their WONDERFUL Wildflower Honey.

I used all of my”found” items in tonight’s dinner.On my baked Pork Chop I used the stolen sprig of Thyme,a hot sprig of Rosemary and… I poured a generous helping of Carriage House Farm, Wildflower Honey over them…GENIUS! I used the leaf of Basil that I filched in my Butternut Squash with, Smashed Garlic ,Sea Salt and one really tiny potato that I lifted from a box that I walked by…

A Wonderful time was had by all!

How did I prepare for a long weekend?

I decided to take a four day weekend…with only a little time needed for appointments.The plan is to rest, Cook and enjoy life.I spent the last week checking out Cook Books with which to immerse myself .The Library is an AMAZING ┬áresource for my cooking obsession.The Internet is fine but, It can NEVER replace the feel and smell of a great book!
