The Saturday after the election we took a hike at deCordova Sculpture Park. It’s kid-friendly, an easy walk, and you’ll see some amazing modern art literally standing out in nature for you to enjoy at your leisure. So many pieces. And a yummy vegetable barley soup with wild mushrooms and lentils to make when you get home!
On Halloween we took a hike in Arlington at the Alewife Brook Reservation. In this post I reminisce about Halloweens past, and the beauty we discovered so close to home, and a snowy Halloween that is so different than those celebrations of days past.
I love Maine, don’t you? And when the border finally reopened to MA residents, we knew our next hike would be there. Mount Agamenticus is an easy hike, kid friendly, and near so many cool places for breakfast and lunch. Why not go this weekend?
We returned to a favorite hike of ours at Walden Pond in Concord MA today. We arrived early and were greeted with the most beautiful autumn foliage, fog lifting off the water, and a peaceful hike around the pond!
It’s apple picking season, and if you’re looking for something just a bit different, using a store bought crust, this amazing coconut cardamom apple pie with streusel topping is it! Plus some great tips for apple picking at Nashoba Valley and a beautiful autumn hike in Nashua NH! Enjoy
Today I roasted a Picnic Pork Shoulder and created my own Char Siu sauce, including making my own Hoisin Sauce and Five Spice Powder and it brought back memories of trips to Chinatown when I was young.
We revisited a park we went to back in 2010. Believe it or not, almost the exact same day 10 years later! And when we came home I made this curried squash and apple soup. Why not try it? And head to the island now that the plovers are done doing their thing~
This post includes my memories of hot air ballooning with my mom and the adventure starts while I was booking the trip! And a delicious pie based on a recipe for Atlantic Beach pie, but taking advantage of the happy combination of lemon, mango, and pineapple, with a dash of coconut thrown in! And yes, it’s a saltine crust, be brave!
Walking along the Battle Road Trail in Concord, and a filling and healthy lentil stew to make for a sunny autumn day
We recently revisited Blackstone River and Canal Heritage State Park in Uxbridge, MA. After 10 years, it is still beautiful and a great place for family, friends and dogs to wander, enjoy the water, get some fresh air, and explore! I hope you agree.
