I hope you are all enjoying your Labor Day weekend! It was a great day to be outside. A little windy from what is left of Hurricane Earl, but a nicer weekend than everyone first thought it would be.
I spent the day with my hubby. We went over to the Garlic Festival in Bennington, VT which is about 45 minutes away from us. We got there early and did lots of tasting at the vendor booths. There were things like garlic pickles, garlic dips, pickled garlic, garlic fudge, homemade breads, whole wheat garlic pockets, garlic nuggets, garlic jellies, garlic chocolate chip cookies and different varieties of pestos.
For garlic items, we bought some German White Garlic to grow in our garlic (and to cook with), some Garlic Pepper Jelly (yummy), organic dried garlic and some traditional pesto. I always purchase some homemade soaps and lotions while there too. I love the Oatmeal Almond soap and this time I also tried some Coconut soap along with some Almond Shea Butter Lotion and Almond Salt Scrub.
I really love homemade items and this is the place to go to get them. The prices are great and the quality of the items is even better. LOVE going and glad we made it again this year.
While we were out that far, we stopped at a couple little shops in the area we have been wanting to stop at that are just over the border in New York. We had lunch at the Great Moose in Hoosick, NY. Pulled pork, coleslaw with green tea to drink and then ice cream for dessert. I even found some great crafting ideas while browsing around!
Great day, now back to reality. I need to get some housework and laundry done:))
Have a great weekend!
