I celebrated a birthday last month and The Professor really hit it out of the park this year; we were supposed to make a trip to the East Coast but sometimes life just doesn’t cooperate like we think it should. My guy still made the entire weekend really special with tickets to the theater, a bouquet of handmade paper flowers, an overnight visit from my sister-in-law and dinner at Cerulean Restaurant in Indianapolis – somewhere we hadn’t visited before.

I’m having one of those ‘Rip Van Winkle’ moments because I just  cannot fathom that I’m actually using the words, ‘mid-summer.’ Then I look at the calendar and remember that the temperatures have been above 90 for the past couple of weeks and our gardens do indeed, remind me that it really is mid-summer – there’s a bounty to be picked and enjoyed!  We’ve put together a ‘mid-summer’ garden tour – so take a minute and walk with us – we’ll show you around!

DIM SUM . . . and then some . . .

No matter how well you plan something, “stuff” happens, and never is this more true than when traveling.  When we made a quick 3-day trip to Salt Lake City back in May, our intentions were to see our granddaughter, meet Maria and Josh from TwoPeasAndTheirPod, and check out some local culinary establishments – quite a bit for 3 short days.  The Professor takes great pride in planning our trips and he does a fantastic job.  In his Internet research wizardry, he also found that the Viking Cooking School in Salt Lake City offers some pretty fantastic cooking classes.  Our first cooking class together was during our trip to Charleston, SC in March and was a blast – besides, this cooking class would be about Dim Sum!
