Happy Sunday!

I have so many things planned for this weekend, so I’m going to keep this post short.

From working to going to the farmer’s market to celebrating my grandma’s birthday, it’s definitely a busy weekend. Plus, with family from out of state visiting, I get to play the part of the tour guide, which is always fun.

But before I get all wrapped up in life, I have to share with you this honey strawberry basil toast.

It’s like taking a bite out of summer.

    This sounds great! It gives me another way to use the fresh basil in my garden! (I use it most often to make pesto or treat mosquito bites.) I’ll think I’ll try this with almonds. My family probably won’t eat it, though. Hey, that’s just more for me! ha ha

    Thanks for liking my summer photo gallery. It reminded me that I haven’t checked out your blog in a while. I’ll have to peruse your site a bit and catch up.
