A new coffee place

 Found a new coffee place this weekend thanks to my friend Kim. It's called The Biscuit and it is located in Somerville near the Cambridge line.

Actually the place is not new, just new to me. At The Biscuit, they make their bakery items on the premises. Such a selection of tarts both sweet and savory, breads, scones, cookies!

There was quite a selection of items to choose from.  I opted for the tomato and feta tart. Glad I chose it. I had it warmed and it was delicious.

The decor is simple and the coffee is fantastic.  I most confess I brought a few items home. I highly recommend the cornmeal ginger cookies!

Oh this looks like a great coffee house Elaine!
I love the name and that mug is adorable with the logo on it:)

Happy New Year!!

Hey! This looks wonderful! I miss working in downtown Chicago because there were always great places for coffee and a nosh! Other than Starbucks, there is nothing really close to me where I live. Looks like you have a new place to enjoy, Elaine!

Talk about a winning combination ... tomato and feta is one of my favorites! Throw in a little spinach and some artichoke and holy cow, I'm in heaven! Glad you found a new little place to eat, Elaine!
I'd LOVE to go there - wouldn't it be great to go together?! I'd love that!!

Happy New Year!!

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 …
