Just Chicken In

One of the stalls at the farmers market here in our small town has a great marketing ploy. They bring along a cooped chicken to advertise their farm fresh eggs. Naturally, every kid flocks to see the chicken, and before they know it, unsuspecting parents are buying eggs by the dozen!

Chickens and red gingham...now that is a combo made in country heaven!

Have you seen the new gingham papers at Amuse art stamps? They are adorable! I want them in every color! They just add such a fresh, country, summery look to your creations. Make sure you check them out! ( you can click on the link at the right)

Speaking of chickens...last night, I had slow cooker classic chicken cacciatore...mmm! So good! And with fresh parsley, oregano, and basil from my garden, it was a real treat. It's not too late to plant some herbs in your garden. If you don't have the land, try growing them in a pot instead. They add so much to my cooking. The recipe came from one of my favorite cookbooks...One-Pot Meals from Gooseberry Patch (link at right). You can even find my recipe for Mediterranean Pasta Salad on page 167!

Hope your day is filled with fresh country blessings!
