H54F !!

Happy Friday!

I'm linking up with Lauren...

one:: I'll admit I was pretty absent from social media on Mother's Day... sometimes it's nice just to be private and enjoy the day.  Also everyone was posting about how amazing their mothers are and that their mother is the best so I felt kinda bad because they're all wrong.  I have the best mother - the absolute best mother in the entire world, regardless of what anyone else claims.  I got to spend most of the day brunching with her and touring a neighborhood parade of homes.  It was blissful and wonderful! 

two:: The company I work for is participating in a local CSA (community supported agriculture) program as part of our wellness plan and last Friday was our first pick up!  I'm pretty excited for the whole 10 weeks because it will get me out of my norm and I'm going to experience new and awesome things!  Which is why this week is a lot about food - I had to test out all my yummy produce!  I was most nervous about the raw honey - something I've never tried before, and of course it was mind-blowingly delicious!

three:: I need to stop with the cat pictures, I know.  

four:: recipes to come next week, I promise!  Polenta stuffed tomatoes, well really - tomatoes submerged in polenta.  Almost all the ingredients were from my CSA bag except the basil was from my table top garden - pretty proud of this dish :)

five:: Another CSA dish - cucumber salad plus some additional fresh herbs from my garden.  This was also a little out of my comfort zone and not a salad I would usually prepare - but it turned out great.  

*this week was all about food for me :)

Big Big weekend coming up - heading home for Relay for Life!!   This will be my 5th American Cancer Society Relay for Life in honor of my father who survived his battle with cancer.  I would love for you to help me with my fundraising goal to support the American Cancer and their mission.

$5 dollar Friday!  Every little bit helps :)

My deepest gratitude in advance.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Always, J ♥
