Un bouquet ou deux pour vous~
Ou trois ou quatre!
Still ..I am overwhelmed by the fun of having color and beauty right outside our door.
I am outside..all day.
In for lunch and often standing up..
then in to start dinner preps around 4..
And sometimes..even after dinner..
out and about I go and.. yes ...and click click.
Remember that song Still by Lionel Ritchie?
Someone once told me when they heard that song they thought of me..
Well I feel that way about my garden..all winter..Never far from my thoughts..
And more loyal:)
It is high season Lily Of The Valley time here..
And I have been intoxicating over my bouquets..
Luckily..The Diva herself..Miss Giuliana was spotted for a few minutes the day I picked this bouquet and I said:"Could you just hold this for a few minutes?"So obliging as always~
That darling girl is lucky she does not live next door.:)
I think we would be baking up a storm:)
And I would be clicking away at her.
She is a natural.
I save a few things..as you can see..
The Laura Ashley ribbon is from a beloved PJ I bought at a Ross in Florida:)
I loved the ribbon as much as the PJ:)
It just suited my bouquet so much..I tied it around this oh so fragrant beautiful bouquet♥
I made little fondant LOTV thanks to a post from Carol G.. but had no occasion for a cakes..so again..one day soon after an occasion I will post.
As far as annuals go..My fuschias are knocking my socks off right now..
And all the little herbs here and there:)
Along with edible blooms..
In the food dept..
I tried a fast ..easy and delicious little appy..
I used brick sheets as she did but Phyllo would be perfectamundo too!
I found it on a charming blog I follow..
You can find the recipe here.
Samosas..black olive..chèvre and red pepper~
Go see hers..they are more transparent..I doubled my silly little sheets and they became opaque..still the taste was as they say :"nom nom"::)
Buy brick sheets..(I had some from Adonis..) or use phyllo..
Make a mixture of black olives(Kalamata for me) diced red pepper..and chèvre ..I had feta..)..add Herbes De Provence and make your samosas with this filling.. brush with EVOO..Bake at 350 F for ap..20 mins flipping half way..
Mine took a tad longer..
So good..I had filling leftover and ate it by the spoonful.
Merçi Rose Noisette!
Another something I made that was a huge hit..
Will post a pic soon..were these..
I happened to read Marie's post this morning at 6 AM.. and I knew I would be having boys over today..
Will I make these again?
The nutmeg is the clincher..
Apart from the all over taste.
They were gobbled up here.
Also I received my first 6 pack of Alain's eggs..
I am over the moon..
Will try and make something special soon..
Thinking cap on.
Have a lovely week..~
