This Week’s Features

Unfortunately there is no veggie garden at our home, Starry Acres, this year.  We decided to move our VERY rustic garden (it was falling apart!) to a different spot and use that space to store our camper.  My husband promised me raised beds for next year – I’ll take it!  One of my favorite and easiest veggies to grow is zucchini and if you’ve ever grown it yourself, you know how much one plant can produce so I’m always looking for different ways to use it.  This recipe for Zucchini Kofta Curry from Rahda at The Magical Ingredients looks like a fun and different way to use up that veggie!
Another item I have a lot of – mason jars!  I use them throughout the year for making pickles, freezer jam, storing fruit in the refrigerator, etc.  But it’s fun to use them for creative purposes too, so check out Sinea’s 12 Really Cool DIY Projects with Mason Jars at Ducks ‘n A Row.
Summers are beautiful here in Western New York, usually falling between 75-85 degrees F on any given day.  That’s not to say it doesn’t get hotter, and our humidity can be pretty awful at times.  Coffee in the morning can feel a bit heavy, so I like to have a tasty chai tea instead.  This recipe from Kendra for Better Than Coffee-House Chai Tea sounds so yummy!


I am the biggest Dollar Tree fan – just check out my Instagram stories and you’ll see I regularly share my latest purchases :D. The possibilities are endless when it comes to remaking the items you can purchase there to make them fit your decor style.  Linda from A Labour of Love did just that with her Dollar Tree Foam Pumpkin Makeover – click to see what she did!
