Saling and Munching!
I spent last Saturday morning yard saling and meandering up and down the streets of Lunenburg. I found a great chenille bedspread just like I wanted, near mint shape for only $2. I also found a sad and sorry looking boudoir chair in need of a makeover and some love and attention ($5). At 9:30 am, I ate a gorgeous worth-much-more-than-$2 piece of carrot cake with thick, delicious cream cheese icing. [Vegetable and dairy -- perfect for breakfast, right?]
One particular yard sale stands out from the entire day. It was put on by a local women's group; and by the time I got there at 11:30 am, I'm sure a lot had already sold. But they still had some lovely vintage things remaining, and everything was displayed very prettily. I bought this cute little purse ($3) and vintage pin cushion ($3) [just like my Grandma had hanging off her cupboard door].
But the thing that set that yard sale apart from all the other great sales that day was that while you were shopping, someone went round with a tray of homemade rhubarb cheesecake squares. Free dessert! And my oh my! They were scrumptuous.
"I'll have to try to find this recipe", I thought to myself.
How happy I was today to see that Mary at One Perfect Bite was featuring -- what else -- Rhubarb Cheesecake Squares. If you've never tried them, please do. They are soooo good!
Don't you just love it when your prayers are answered!
