Kids, Farm Delivery, Gardens & More

My kids were happy I baked before they even woke for school this morning. They all had a taste before the bus. I added mini Lemon Cakes and banana bread to my baking table.
Then, I stopped by the Wholesale Nursery to pick up compost and a mixture of potting soil and peat moss to go into the tiny spot I have to put in my garden.
I am going to try squash, peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and eggplant. I think I will be all set if I remember to water regularly.
My cookbook is almost there. I have worked through a number of printing challenges and it is a matter of getting it done now. Once my teaching semester ends I am more hopeful for its completion. In the meantime, I will bake as much as I can.
The weather today reminds me what I love most about living on the Cape. I went to a teacher conference at Bridgewater State College for the day yesterday and it was a good 15 degrees hotter there than it was when I returned over the bridge.

Basket, Cookies & Ta-dah!

This week I donated one of my gift baskets to the kids school for a silent auction. When I dropped it off (my four year old in tow was still wearing her night gown) the office staff commented on how pretty it looked. Sophia looked pretty adorable herself. Her long super curly blond hair complemented her silky and pink princess nightgown. She wore her Hannah Montana flip-flops.
I am up early this Saturday morning baking cookies for the farm. I am bringing dreamy island cookies for sale at the store later today.
As for today's ta-dah! I finished writing my cookbook this week. I am in the process of finding the best way to have it printed.
At some point, you can purchase a copy at the farm directly or order one through me.
