|everything is munchable on this wall|
Not only did we get to sample flower infused tea and a salad with fresh pansies - we learned to sugar flowers -- with a finale of cupcakes topped with violas!
|too pretty to eat - but I did.|
Probably not the healthiest way to get your greens - but trust me, no one was complaining. I also, learned that day lilies are edible - great news because we have so many in the yard come Summer. Also, it encouraged me to give Nasturtiums another go - mine always seem to fizzle out - even though they say full sun, I think full-on Southern sun is just too much. C and I each received a potted viola - my first time growing these guys - so we'll see how these typical Winter plants like our humid and warm Winters down here. - they do make the daintiest additions to every dish.
Of course, before we made the journey back home, we had to snap up a few goodies. I picked this Sweet Pecan Rub...smells amazing! I'm sure it's going to be fantastic on steak or pork, but I want to give it a try on sweet potatoes. C and I both picked a holiday tea - because we just won't share...Gingerbread for me and Christmas for her.
It was definitely worth the trip to Baton Rouge and I hope to return more often - hopefully ready with some new recipes!
