Everything is so much calmer and clearer when you have the time to work in the dirt. Today I planted HollyHock Happy Light Seeds. They are pretty amazing towers of stalk with these huge bulbous flowers. The first part of the name, “holly” is derived from the name “holy”. The second part, “hock” came from the belief that the leaves helped to heal horses’ hocks that were swollen from their long travels. Below is a plant that came back from last year.
We went to a friend’s house last week-end and it was a bring your own appetizer party. That set me into a slight tailspin because if you check out my site there are not a lot of appetizers. After searching the internet I eventually came up with this delightful recipe. Normally tomatoes are used in a salad like this with a balsamic dressing. Here the smokiness of the salty prosciutto pairs wonderfully with the sweetness of the melon. The dressing is a blend of white balsamic vinegar, honey, olive oil, salt and pepper. The result is light and refreshing.

Cheri Savory Spoon
Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
