Week 24 Thursday (6/26/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Blueberry Lemon Sweet Rolls
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         It’s summer and I seem to be on a berry tangent so here’s another summery kind of recipe.  I’ll get off this kick tomorrow. 
         These look so good, and like Ree, I adore sweet rolls. They are so rich and decadent that even the gooeyness makes me happy!  I can’t make this recipe, but in the future, I may make it without the berries.  A lemon sweet roll sounds great to me.  I’m going to print this out and just edit out the blueberries – I’ll get back to y’all with the Becky adjusted recipe.

Random Reflections - The Glorious Garden

         If you need a flower that can handle the Illinois summer heat and thrive, you need the coreopsis. This hearty plant is beautiful and a plant that is hard to kill. According to the tag:

         This variety is called the coreopsis grandiflora
         I have the yellow version, but they come in a variety of colors
         This plant can survive almost any soil
         This can spread by itself but it is not overdone.
         In order to keep constant color you need to deadhead it.
         They flower from early summer until late fall
         I have mine in full sun where they thrive
         Height: 18 - 24" Width: 18 – 24”

Irksome Ideas and Images

         One of my pet peeves is when kids “dog ear” the corner of books.  I ask kids to use a post-it note or flag to keep their place so they do not fold the corner. Another bad habit is to place a book upside down while open. This has potential to break the spine. This is such a small insignificant thing, but it really does bug me.
