I spent the past few days weeding my front yard. A whole pick up truck bed full of weeds. I just about collapsed from exhaustion and haven’t read blogged, commented or anything in days – so sorry about that. Florida apparently skipped spring and just jumped to summer. It’s been in the 90’s everyday.
There aren’t many new blooms this week. I did buy some coleus to fill in some bare spots and herbs – both for myself (thyme, basil, cilantro) and my butterflies (parsley, dill – they are good host plants for laying eggs & the larva stage).
Going off topic – but after roasting in the yard we were STARVING! We had heard about a food truck called Yum Yum, that all the farm hands and horse people in the area (I live in horse country) kept raving about.
This place is SO good! Really fresh food, made to order. I had a blackened Salmon sandwich but they have rice bowls and a few veggie options YUM YUM indeed.
But!!!!! Look at dessert!
They sell something called stuffed cupcakes. This was a strawberry stuffed cupcake with strawberries (obviously), raspberry puree and fresh whipped cream. OMG…to die for!
And just when I thought this place couldn’t get anymore awesome – we had company…He hung out with us and shared a little bit of our meal.
This is also peak farmers market season here. This was dinner last night – fresh made whole wheat pasta with snap peas, squash, tomatoes and whole wheat french bread. All from the market.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch up some reading and review writing the next few days. I’m falling waaaay behind…..EEP!
