SUMMER FAVORITES AT TRADER JOE'S!
Hi loves....how was your weekend?
Let me tell you.....
IT IS HOT, HOT, HOT down here in the great state of Texas!
Maybe I am just growing OLD...
but I may not go outside the rest of the summer!
My new Strawberry-Vanilla Hydrangea has bloomed, so
I am SUPER excited about this....now just to wait on
the pink blossoms to appear!
It is very hard to keep plants thriving through summer months
in the south...we did lose our lovely purple petunias
while we were visting Atlanta....
You simply must bake something with peaches during summer,
so the recipe I chose for the week were these divine
Peach Muffins! Delish!!!
The darling and I went to lunch at
McAllisters on Saturday after our morning errands were done!
I love their tea...this can last me for two days....
and it was PEACH tea y'all......just delightful!
Then it was on to Trader Joe's!
I had my list all ready after their flyer arrived last week!
I wanted to try so many of their new items!!!
We came home with two shopping bags full of goodies!
what else represents SUMMER more than these?
I plan to serve these for a pre July 4th gathering....
don't you love to try new flavors when preparing appetizers?
There is nothing more refreshing in summer than Mango!!!!
Don't forget to save the bags!!
Now THESE are for my Mr. Wonderful...
The Divine Miss M had served this last week and
he LOVED it!!! We had a late night cocktail hour
in the kitchen one night and noshed on fabulous pub cheese!
I tried their fresh watermelon juice last year and was hooked!
Lawd, I love this juice!!!!
And the cheese is going to be served with the new flavored
Fig and Olive crackers, along with my
Mango, Mango chutney!
When it's a hot summer evening....
these cold Mango Bites are on the dessert menu!
Oh perfect.....these will be saved for our Fourth of July celebration!!!
I adore their vintage look!
I found my nautical napkins last week so the tablescape
Are y'all ready for your holiday weekend coming up?
Let's celebrate AMERICA!!!!
my kitty girl as been quite lavish with her affections
since we returned home!
How I love those kitty kisses!!!!
Can't wait to see what y'all did this weekend?
