Shaker Seasoning

Our late night guilty pleasure is McDonald's. It's that rare occasional indulgence that gets you through a deadline, treat dinner, stress or a night out with friends. No one wants to admit that it's theirs but how do you account for those long drive-thru lines?

I had to share this tiny packet of Hot & Spicy Shaker Seasoning for fries. How convenient and cute. Am I late to the game on this one? Are these everywhere and I just don't know it?

Great Gumballs

This photo was taken by my sons after they jarred some old-fashioned gumballs they'd received as a treat. Less tasty than they are beautiful, it's great for your soul to have a bit of nostalgia ready for your palette.

Beautiful Bottles

A friend of mine recently posted this photo on Instagram. They prefer to remain anonymous but it's simply a beautiful bottle lineup.

Forest Foraging: Seasonal Chestnuts

We happened on a woman foraging through with buckets full of these chestnuts. They are for the deer on her property who, she claims, will go through a bucket of these on minutes.

Pumpkin, please

It's that time of year. Fall. First thought? Pumpkin. On the heels of our garden obsession, we have tasted one of the most beautiful pumpkins organically grown in the garden of a friend. Purely unfiltered photo that only hints at what was in store for our palettes. Bread, soup, muffins and lasagna are just a few of what this squash can yield. Don't be intimidated by the size or segmented exterior. Slice it open and get creative. Pumpkin is one of the most versatile foods out there so embrace the season and enjoy.

Food Labels: Read Carefully!

This is clearly going to do a great job of "sliming" you down. Think they meant Slimming. I'm sure it'll do the job...

Seeing Red

We had the pleasure of partaking in afternoon tea straight from a dear friend's garden. Amazingly enough, amidst a full- on house renovation, these gorgeous gems were tended to and the crop yielded a generous bounty. Red ripened tomatoes that were still a bit warm from basking in the sun.
