~Summer Outdoor Party and Simple & Sweet Fridays #234~

The weather was so hot in San Diego, 
We wanted to have some friends over that we hadn't seen in awhile. It must have been 90 in San Diego!
I set the table using my sunflower tablecloth from 
Williams Sonoma.


Fresh picked sunflowers from our garden!
Dishes from Williams Sonoma,
I love that store!!



A lemon pound cake for dessert!


The garden looked beautiful that night.
It was wonderful having Kim, David, Denise and Joey over!!
I'm going to share with you more photos
 of the new patio area!
We had a great time reminiscing when the kids were little!!
Friendships Forever!
Hope you all had a great weekend!

~Biscotti, Stuffed Cabbage & New Garden Patio Project~



I love baking!!
I decided to bake some biscotti.
Here's the recipe
I added some fresh grated lemon, 
I love the taste of lemon!!



With a homemade latte,
I'm in Heaven!!
Our family loves stuffed cabbage. My mother-in-law, Mary,
 was from Poland. I was thinking of her and all the wonderful memories and thought I'd make some stuffed cabbage for the family. Here is a very good recipe I used


I picked some fresh pears out of the garden.
So delicious, Orient Pears!!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Stan is working on another garden patio area.
He amazes me so much with his energy and ability to design.
I'm so lucky!!
I'll share with you the finished area soon!

~My Favorite French Garden Books and Simple & Sweet Fridays #233~

I wanted to share with you this week,
 two of my favorite 
~French Garden Books~
These books have inspired me to take photographs
of our garden and cook recipes using our garden's produce.
Kitchen Gardens of France

Louisa Jones
Here are some photos from the book.



















I love each garden.
~Potager~ 
Fresh Garden Cooking in the French Style

This book has inspiring garden photos and delicious recipes!











I love reading these books and dreaming of the 
beautiful gardens of France!
You can find both books on Amazon!
~Our Potager Garden Stew~
We made a quick lunch from our garden vegetables;
zucchini, tomatoes, spinach and onion.
We added ground beef and parmesan cheese.
