Here I am envisioning what I would carry in my tote to the Girlfriends Luxury Getaway at the Equinox Resort and Spa in Manchester, VT. Joe and I enjoyed shopping at the designer outlets on his Spring Break in April.
Cayuga Lake Wine and Herb Festival - Drink. Eat. Garden. Repeat
Sharing some herb trivia... did you know that Basil is sometimes called "Kiss-Me-Nicholas" in various parts of the Italy where it is considered a token of love. A girl wearing a sprig of basil suggests her beau need not keep his distance.
I love Parsley Spread - 1 bunch of parsley (chop it fine and dry well - use leaves only)
Mayo - sufficient quantity to make it spreadable
Salt and Pepper
Grated onion - very little (about 1 tsp)
Use with crackers or on a chicken sandwich
Each winery we visited gave us an herb or vegetable plant. They have all been planted and I hope to share my bounty this summer.
I would be remiss if I didn't show you this picture of my sister Diane. This was not planned but thanks to Mr. Mountain Breaths keen eye he made the black and white connection while we were standing in the parking lot chatting.
Miss Aurora loved toting goodies for our little Easter bunny. Xavier turned one in March.
