November? Autumn? Are you there?

The heat and flourishing garden are confusing, yet welcome, and I dream of reprising this smörgåsbord. Garden-grown cucumber, tomato and herbs, a fresh jar of my red kraut, briny capers, thin slices of red onion, wedges of lemon, cream cheese, homemade bagels and the star, Ewig Brothers smoked herring toted back from a visit home to Wisconsin. Summertime on a platter!

Hope your weather, if not as warm, is nice for the weekend. Hop down to the links below, and enjoy your Saturday and Sunday.

Cheers, Heather

Some interesting, fun, delicious reads:

Worldwide it’s about 15 million annually, and approximately one million of those babies won’t survive. Help raise awareness and show support in a variety of ways: volunteer your time, participate in a walk, donate, or simply spread the message by word of mouth or through social media.
  • Stocking up on cranberries, and dreaming of all the things to drench with cranberry shallot walnut oil vinaigrette.
