Birthday Weekend

This past weekend we celebrated my honey’s birthday.

We started the celebration early by attending the Vermont Flow Show on Friday where we got a small taste of spring and attended a wonderful workshop on growing and cultivating  herbal medicine bushes.

Saturday we went to look at puppies and run a few errands. We spent the evening curled up together under quilts on the couch watching old movies — what a great way to spend an evening.

I also spent a bit of time making the requested birthday dinner: beefless stew, fougasse stuffed with chopped olives and lots of fresh herbs and ended the meal with a Greek yogurt cheesecake topped with strawberries (this time of year I had to use some frozen strawberries I had in the freezer from last season).

… What an enjoyable chore-free weekend.
