~Lemon Scones & Purple Sangria Artichokes~

Stan and I worked in the garden all weekend, cutting back plants, taking others out because of the heat, planning new projects and 
of course, mowing the lawn.
 I wanted to make something simple for a dessert.
I love any recipe with lemons in it.

I found this Lemon Ginger Scones mix at Home Goods and
 thought this was the perfect day to whip some up.
They were delicious and so simple to make.
I also went to Bread and Cie, one of the best bakeries
 in San Diego.
Some lemon bread was on my list too.
It was so Good!
I love Trader Joe's and saw these beautiful purple stock and had to buy them. I love the way the sun
 was shinning on them this morning.
We have a Sprouts downtown and I was shopping one day and saw these awesome purple artichokes.
Stan took a photo next to our pumpkin, they're so Purple!
They're called Sangria Artichokes from Frieda's, a specialty produce company. I have never seen them before.We cooked them that night and they were so tender and sweet.
I went back the next day to get more. I will definitely like to grow some in our garden next year. So now, I'm on a quest to find some.
I also stopped by my favorite store, Home Goods
 and picked up a new little treasure for the mantel.
A girl's got to do,
 what a girl's got to do.
Happy Monday to everyone!!

  8. We are lemon fanatics around here. In fact, our granddaughters are coming from Maine at the week's end and they have already requested a lemon meringue pie! But lemon scones! Oh my! I am going to have work on that one...we love lemon and we love scones! Must put them together...perhaps this week coming!

  9. Oh yeah, I have been shopping ever since the kiddos went back to school. Love those purple artichokes!!

  10. Wow, I have eaten Artichokes my whole life being Italian, we ate them stuffed. I have never seen them. They are so beautiful and I bet they were great!! Lucky stiff, LOL!!!
