KORALEE! I WAS BLOWN AWAY BY THE SIZE OF THAT ONION!!!!!!!!!

I love, just LOVE your idea of the weekend. WE TOO love settling in with a good meal and now that the weather is cooler, it is so fun to also have a hot beverage at hand! Don't you just love making pesto? I make it all the time for pasta or....my famous stuffed burgers! I stuff a burger with GOAT CHEESE and then top it with freshly made pesto. AND if you like cilantro (we Hispanics love it), you can make your pesto with that.

What a joyful post, as always!! Anita

magie said...

You sure have been a busy bee in the kitchen. It is such an awarding time of year for harvesting.

I like the sound of the pesto biscuits..looks good.

My goodness! You've been busy, Koralee! We had a weekend like that, too...my favorite kind! Your pictures are lovely, as always...

Don't you love jadeite pieces?! I have a salt & pepper like your sugar shaker in the photo--can't get enough of them!

Wishing you a lovely Sunday, dear friend!

A very special weekend I must say.
I picked tomatoes from our garden and made a delicious cold soup, just wonderful. I can't wait until out plum tree produces plums like those. They are my favorite! Everything your made looked wonderful, delicious!

Where on Earth did you get that onion???

pollydove said...

Oh my goodness, this all looks sooooo delicious! Maybe one of these days, I will take it upon myself to actually make things from scratch, instead of just buying it all! It would be nice to teach my girls a thing or two as well!

(I wondered why I keep missing your posts, and for some reason your blog is "hidden" from my list. I can't like that one little bit! Now I need to get helping figuring out how to un-hide it! Boo.)

K @ Aurora Blythe said...

Looks like your home on the weekend is one yummy place to be! Intrigued by the plum platz. Looks delish. Is it a German dish? My uncle used to make kuchen a lot. Looks sort of similar.

Elyse said...

dearest koralee,

only you could make a food processor full of pesto look so lushly beautiful.

happy september wishes, gifted one

You must be a great cook. Everything look yummy. I have never had a pesto biscuit. The onion was the biggest I have ever seen. Smiles, Susie

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

GOOD MORNING SWEET ONE!

I love this collage so; that onion is just mighty HUGE! I bet the onion rings were just juicy and unforgettable!

My dear, NO CREATIVE CONNECTION THIS YEAR??? Budget cuts???? I hope not. This cannot be! I sure would have loved to see you again. NOW, school is in full-swing for you! I should be getting into the data base system for subbing by the end of this month. I did however, get a phone call from a former colleague over at the immersion school asking me to sub for her this Friday, but I told her to wait to call on me when I get into the system since that is how I get paid!!!!

Go in and SPARKLE TODAY; those kids are so blessed to have Miss. T. teach them!!! LOVE TO YOU dear and wonderful friend, Anita

fernandflora said...

Ooo! I want to come to your house on the weekends! Beautiful photos and food inspiration!

And thank you for your sweet comment on Oliver's blog. I didn't realize that I was signed into his blog when I commented on yours, but glad you stopped by!

xoxo!

Libbie said...

That onion made me laugh! It is HUGE!!! All that freshness is making me hungry! How cool to even pick the plums! Never have done that before! I can't keep plums in the house...I mean I buy them but they never stay long...the boys eat so many they get sick :) (I am pretty sure you didn't really want to know that but now it's out there ;) Hope this week goes quickly so you can soon be enjoying another fall weekend :)

Palomasea said...

What joy to find your message today, sweet Koralee! Thank you! :)
I hope school is going well for you!
We are in full swing...
What gorgeous photos, as always..
Everything sounds and looks so delicious!
Have a beautiful week, dear friend!
Love and blessings,
