Pink Saturday Birthday

Let's raise our glasses and toast Beverly from How Sweet the Sound. It's her first Pink Saturday birthday! One year of posting Pink. Congratulations Beverly!! You may ask what's in the glasses? Well, it's non-alcoholic and quite yummy.

Before I tell you about my favorite summer beverage, I want to share with you the cups I use most in the warm weather. I got a set of six of these plastic cups about two years ago on clearance at Starbucks. I just love the cheerful pink and green colors and they came with an adorable plastic tote for storing them. It was clear with pink roses and it was not photogenic at all. Actually sorry about the cup photo too. They really are cute in person.
Anyway, my friends and family are toasting Beverly with strawberry lemonade. It is the best strawberry lemonade ever!
Here's the recipe so please try it.
Strawberry Lemonade
6 cups cold water, divided
1 cup strawberry halves
1 (2.2 oz) tub Crystal Light Lemonade or Pink Lemonade Flavor Low Calorie Soft Drink Mix
Place two cups of the water, strawberries, and drink mix in blender container, cover.
Blend on high speed until smooth.
Pour into large plastic or glass pitcher and stir in remaining four cups of water.

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
