24 Years Ago Today!


The Herbal Husband and I tied the knot.  Here is a surprise dessert I bought at the store this afternoon.  The Herbal Husband loves chocolate mousse so I found these small chocolate mousse tartlets.  The perfect size.  His words.  Mine is a small fruit tartlet.  Very good as well.  We also got another road trip to eastern Pennsylvania for the annual Allentown toy show and to visit our friends over last weekend.  I hope this is the last trip of the year.  We traveled a bit too much this year.  Now I have to fix my car.  I hate that part.  When a car becomes a senior, it usually starts to just come unglued!

This trip has been a standard in our lives over the years.  I went to Well Sweep Herb Farm in New Jersey that still was without power since last Saturday.  Hope power is back now.  Power crews and tree crews everywhere.  There were trees that had lost branches but not their leaves.  Very sad.  A lot of damage.  The herb farm had 18 inches of snow!
 Look at all of those herbs!  Too bad I couldn't take any with me!  It is going to be mild here for the next few days.  Always next year.

Also went to Sally Lunn Tearoom & Restaurant in Chester, NJ for afternoon tea in the morning!  Had cherry rose tea and a pumpkin scone.  Forgot that strawberry jam was served.  Not a good choice with the pumpkin scone.  Should have had my Spicy Basil Apple Jelly.  Now that would have been good.  I will leave you with that tease.  I'm promised way back in August that I would be doing some giveaways.  Probably not just one.  Have to discuss it with my packer extraordinaire, but it will be at least 2 and maybe 3 giveaways because I have been blogging for a long time.  So I hope you had a great day.  It was a beautiful day in the 'Burgh.  Just like the day we got married.  We were out shopping on our anniversary.  Had The Herbal Husband's favorite cornflake crumb chicken.  The recipe is on the cornflake crumb box.  Very easy and delicious.  Hope you had a great day.  Talk to you later.

Happy Anniversary to you and your Herbal Husband! Your celebration tarts look delicious...

Does Well Sweep Farm do mail order?
I am looking for a reliable nursery in the US...just can't afford Richter's postage as much as I loved the variety they offer.

My Herb widower and I have been married 22 years just last month. Is it not wonderful to be married in fall!

This is my third attempt to leave a comment!

Thanks to all of you for sending us best wishes. TO, Well Sweep does have mail order. Mail order for nurseries is expensive, but Well Sweep does mail order well and does have a paper catalog with lots of information.

Can I just add my next post for The Herb Companion will have a whole bunch of my favorite herb farms and some have mail order, but mail order is disappearing from others. It has become a slippery slope. Hopefully, it will be published soon.

Happy Anniversary to you both!!!

I love to splurge on the little treats at the market. So much better than making a whole batch that you "have to" eat.

It seems too early to give up on the garden for the year with all the snow. It seems like I just got outside again.

I know TG. We are having beautiful weather at the moment, but snow showers Friday? At this time of year, it can turn quickly!

Thanks Peggy for the wishes.

Thanks ladies for stopping by.
