24 hours - I even made bread

The past 24 hours have been busy but fun for both Dave and I. Weekends are for fun... right !

Last evening we went for groceries then we had supper at our favorite restaurant in Yarmouth. Here is a picture of Dave, making a funny face, with a cold beer while we waited for our supper. It was so nice and warm outside that we were able to have our supper on the restaurant's patio.

We were up bright and early this morning (Saturday) doing all sorts of stuff outside. We went to the Farmer's Market in Belliveau Cove then we came home... prepared everything to roast hot dogs on the open fire (hot dogs were for Dave).



We put more sawdust in our fruit garden. We planted these last year - raspberries, blueberries, currents and grapes.

Had to put this guy out... the crows are keeping an eye on those blueberries.

Our newly planted strawberry patch... only a month old.

Cherries.

I made this pound cake with chocolate glaze.

After we had cake, we went to the beach to fetch a pail of sand to put around our fire pit.


I made BBQ for supper tonight - ground organic chicken cheeseburgers (no pictures) and these yummy homemade clam burgers on toasted whole wheat buns. It was the first time I made these and I will certainly make them again.

And finally... I made bread.

Hmmmm, did I miss anything. Nope, I think that was it. Tomorrow we are heading to visit friends and have a BBQ. I'll post pictures (if I remember to bring my camera).

Everything sounds amazing, dinner, your clam burgers, your homemade bread, your pound cake (with chocolate drizzle no less) and those cherries look delicious. Don wants to know if you could send some to us. B

Vicki, love your photos, and of course, the food looks so delicious! I love how the bread looks! Awesome! Also, those clam cakes, I would love to know how you made them? They look delicious!

FYI - I posted a link to a flickr slide show on my blog to the wedding photos from my son's ceremony yesterday. We were right on the St. Lawrence river for the wedding, it was beautiful!

Barb - the pound cake did'nt turn out as moist as I would have liked but it was still delicious.

Tell Don it could be a while - the only ripe cherries in the tree were in the picture.

honeyb - I posted the recipe for the clamburgers.

Thanks for letting me know about the wedding pictures. What a beautiful setting for a wedding.

You looked sooooooo beautiful and I love your dress. Grumpy looked handsome also.

Colleen - almost everytime I'm working outside my mind will drift on thinking about you. So yes, you are quite often here with me.

Kim - thanks for the comment. The recipe is now posted. Clamburgers are a Maritime thing (he, he, he).
