A Fabulous Day with Friends

Yesterday was my Friend Robin's Birthday!  The celebration included a gathering of food and friendship, first for lunch at one of Robin's Favorite Vegan Restaurants "Fortuitea" you can visit them here:

What a lovely time we had there!! I enjoyed the sweet potato and blackbean burger that was out of this world!!!

 Jimi had the buffalo chickpea cashew mac and cheese

Roger, Robin's Hubby had the sweet potato hummus wrap

and the Birthday Girl had the millet meatloaf and gravy

Oh my!!! everything was so so yummy!!!
Of course I brought a little gift surprise for the Birthday Girl♥

..a handmade gift bag filled with a few treasures of vintage and whimsical sewing items along with a super cool topper for wine bottles.
Next, we went back to the Seeber farm where they reside...what a Magical Place their Farm is!  I have blogged about it before, btw.
We talked, laughed, drank soda and wine then decided on dinner at another one of Robin's Favorite Restaurants....
A day filled with lots of Food and Special Friendship♥

A Truly Wonderful and Special Day♥

Much Love and Many Blessings,

This time of year especially, I am always wanting Fresh Fruits! Creating a Fruit Salad satisfies that craving while providing a healthy snack, meal or side dish.

Here is a quick recipe for Fruit Salad that I literally put together in a flash using things I had in my kitchen.

A Kitchen Spell by Dena K.Miller

1 cup of Blackberries
2 Delicious Apples cored and sliced
Fresh Peaches
Fresh Pears
 maraschino cherries

*Optional 1/4 tsp of cinnamon or ginger and Fresh Mint for garnish

How to:
Toss all ingredients together and place into a beautiful serving bowl.
Sprinkle with spice if desired and garnish with fresh mint.

For that magical touch...add your intention of Love and Blessings for those whom you are serving.

My Birthday~ Just the Beginning...

Last week was my Birthday week!   My Birthday is May 14th, however, we started to celebrate a bit earlier.
It began on Tuesday the 12th with Dinner and a Concert. The dinner was totally Fab!!!! Jimi took me to a restaurant in the Pittsburgh Strip District called Rollands.  It is a Seafood place and the food was so yummy!!!
 I had the Grilled Tuna Salad that came with Fries.(Yes, that is a Grilled Tuna Steak!!!)
Jimi had the Hot Lobster Salad. We also enjoyed spicy Bloody Mary's that went perfect with our selections.
Next, we went to the Consol Energy Center to see the Ed Sheeran Concert.  Jimi arranged for us to go to the Meet and Greet...meeting Ed was super awesome!!!
He actually snapped the photo on Jimi's Cell Phone!
The concert was really great too...Ed puts on a kick ass show!!!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

The Day's Deliciousness

 I took a break from the Tea Shoppe to spend sometime working in our Garden. It was so awesome to spend time Earthing and taking in the delicious aroma of our Lilac Bush.
This bush, has grown into a tree as it has been there for probably a hundred years.
In addition, I found two baby rose bushes that had propagated from the original plant of which we lost last year.
 It is so amazing how Nature reproduces isn't it?

...A gifted Pussy Willow from my friend Robin has found a place in our Front Yard and is being taken care of by the Faery's...can you see the crystals that have attracted them here? Oh, and I planted two Hosta plants also gifted from my friend Robin.
Lastly, I moved our three trellis's and placed them in the Front for the Roses and the other two, I placed to work as an arbor.

How was your day? I hope it was Deliciously Lovely !

Much Love and Many Blessings,
Milady Leela
