Teresa-did a list of good things and I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and do one to. I hope you do not mind Teresa xoxoxox
Greek Gods-I can not tell you how utterly yummy this honey yogurt is. It makes cream-at-the-top yogurt boring.I have only tried the honey and the fig. I did not like the fig. Which surprises me because I adore figs, but this did not work for me. The honey was heavenly. It is slightly sweet and very thick. It reminded me of a yummy panna-cotta with a slightly (very slightly) tang to it. This yogurt with fresh fruit, will be a regular summer dessert !!!
I have been having so much fun watching free movies on-line at Netflix. I just watched North and South and loving it.
"North & South is a splendid, four-hour adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's 19th century novel about an unlikely, and somewhat star-crossed, love between a middle-class young woman from England's cultivated south and an intemperate if misunderstood industrialist in a hardscrabble, northern city. Daniela Denby-Ashe plays Margaret Hale, forthright and strong-willed daughter of a former vicar (Tim Pigott-Smith) who relocates his family from a pastoral village outside London to unforgiving, largely illiterate Milton, a factory town where John Thornton (Richard Armitage) and his mother (Sinead Cusack), survivors of poverty, rule their cotton mill with an iron hand. Thornton befriends Margaret's father but incurs her wrath for his severity with his workers. What she doesn't notice is Thornton's core sense of responsibility for his employees' welfare. On the other hand, he misinterprets some of Margaret's own actions and intentions. Equally stubborn, the two drag out their obvious attraction over many painful months and events."
I have been so enjoying your blog Natalie's based off of Mrs. Beatons book of household managment. Now thanks to Natalie I want a still room ;-)
" Welcome Friends,
Hello and welcome to my site. In her biography of Mrs Beeton Kathryn Hughes says that Beeton's Book of Household Management holds up a mirror to our most intimate needs and desires. By representing "Home" - the place where we go to be loved and to be fed - Mrs Beeton has become part of the fabric of who we feel ourselves to be. This site is dedicated to those of us who choose to be home and is intended to be a virtual meeting place for women who do the feeding and loving in homes around the world"
I have been looking for a hand painted teapot (since I broke mine). I just love the hand painted china at shabbyfufu and check out the amazing Debfordshire Damsels
I love dry soda and lavender is my favorite. I do not drink soda, it is too sweet for me. But this is light and barely sweet. Just perfect.
"Seattle-based DRY Soda Co. offers the first culinary soda, a line of all-natural, lightly sweet beverages designed for those wanting a sophisticated non-alcoholic option to accompany a great meal or simply a night out with friends. DRY combines the subtle essence of nature and the kitchen in its four cuisine inspired flavors: kumquat, rhubarb, lemongrass and lavender.
In a fashion similar to fine wines, DRY was developed to be paired with great foods, and when poured, each flavor teases the senses with an effervescent mix of fragrance and flavor. DRY is all-natural, non-caffeinated, flavored with fruit and herb extracts, and sweetened with a small amount of pure cane sugar. In addition, each bottle of DRY Soda contains only 50-70 calories — far fewer than conventional sodas. Drink DRY and inspire the table"
