A new favorite

tasty oil...........I found this at a farmers market that we recently visited

I am a huge fan of Meyer lemons and anything that pertains to such lemon. I understand that Trader Joe's now carries a cookie that is made with Meyer lemon that is similar to a graham cracker..........looking forward to finding these when we get near a TJ's again.

Stay tuna'd for some recipes using this new find!!!

Soup's on......updated

Quite tasty and hit the spot due to the coolers temps we have been having these last few evenings.

well not quite but it sure is in the works..............making beef barley soup. Which is no big deal but it sure fits with the weather.

What's your favorite soup recipe........send us a link cause I have a feeling soup season is gonna be around for a few more weeks. I'm a cream soup lover but beef barley just seems to fit the bill today and I also had these meaty beef shanks that I had to use.

Stay tuna'd for a photo maybe and a review from Mr Doodles.

I might also add that our very own "lil bird" and her sweet husband attended the inauguration this past week as well as one of our favorite bloggers Sylvie. Go check out their blogs for photos of the historic event and see if they thawed out yet!!!
