Garlic scapes from our vegetable patch (top photo) - sauteed in a little butter with Red Russian Kale.
Sun tea, made with Barry's Irish Tea and lemon balm from the garden. Brewed for about four hours in the blazing Virginia sun. A satisfying way to harness solar energy during those heat advisory days!
Almond oil facial moisturizer with chamomile and roses (also from the garden). I covered the just-picked buds with sweet almond oil and a few capsules of vitamin E. Then, I covered the mason jar with muslin and will let it sit for a week or so, stirring every day.
A sweet friend, Sylvia (age 7/almost 8!), has been making us the most delicious botanical lotions. Willa and I have been fighting over the newest one - jasmine and coconut oil.
Not pictured - but my new go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies, from David Lebovitz.
I have been dreaming about lobster rolls lately and want to find this truck next time we are in NYC.
