This morning the sun is shining, although cool, it promises to be a most wonderful day. After experiencing a weekend of cold, damp and rainy weather - (arriving just in time for our Herb Faire) - I am surely pleased to see the sun! Our Herb Faire was rained on and improvising was the course of the weekend - thank goodness we have two porches at the store - as all the herb flats had to be undercover. Nonetheless, we will deem our "affair" to be successful. Greeting olde customers and meeting new ones is a "simple country pleasure" that I never tire of...and having them excited about finding a treasure to take home is icing on the cake! Speaking of cake.....our goodies were a big hit - the strawberry soup - delightful...the herb cookies - scrumptious - and the cheesespreads disappeared quickly! Lots of herbs were sold to make these recipes - especially the Rose Geraniums....what a surprise for customers when they find out what they are eating! Simple and Delicious - our Rose Geranium Cheesespread recipe -
ROSE GERANIUM CHEESESPREAD
8 oz. softened cream cheese
4 to 5 medium scented rose geranium leaves
Mince leaves into tiny pieces - add to cream cheese and mix with electric mixer till blended well.
Chill and serve - we like to use Pepperidge Farm butterfly crackers....the butterflies love the rose geraniums! ENJOY!!
