Doing Our Small Part

Popham and trashThe weather has been spectacular, but, as we know, there is no such thing as global warming. We had a lovely, most likely last, day at Popham Beach on Sunday. We decided to pick up trash along the way during our walk. We didn’t even need a bag as we found one in the waves. French hubby to the rescue. Sadly, we found a lot of plastic. Hopefully we made a mini dent!

I love traveler’s tomatoes. They are beautiful and delicious despite taking forever to ripen. Travelerstomatoes2017

Porcini or?

We found a little stash of these today and they look like porcini’s but we are not 100% certain. Hmmm. Mushroom 1More Mushrooms

Summer Squash and Lemon Poppy Squash Bread

When life gives you summer squash, you need to get creative. Many stir fries later I decided to look for some new ideas and found this gluten free summer squash bread recipe. I am trying not to eat refined sugar so I used coconut sugar and reduced the amount by about 1/4. It worked like a charm and was moist and tasty. French hubby is not convinced so, I ended up eating most of it myself.

Bon appétit!
