Good day to you! And happy Wednesday Fresh Foods Link Up, week #18!
It's been an interesting week, hasn't it? Between monster storms, monster costumes and monster elections, there's been a lot going on! But now we're getting into a whole new world of busy - the Christmas season. And let me tell you - I can hardly contain myself!! I love me some Christmas! If I had my way, I'd put the tree up November 1st. I think if John had his way, it wouldn't go up until the week before. So while I'm impatiently biding my time until the mutually agreed upon tree decorating day - December first - I have other things I love. Like your posts!
Last week was pretty rad. Less turn out than usual, but with everything going on, I suppose it's to be expected. Highlights from last week include:
|Sorrel Mojitos via Gourmet Veggie Mama|
|Apple Cinnamon Doughnuts via The Spinach Spot|
|Planting Garlic via Bepa's Garden|
