We were lucky enough to spend a long weekend at a friend's beautiful home in The Hamptons, on the end of Long Island.
The Hamptons consist of beautiful beaches, beautiful people and an interesting mix of farms and mansions.
The huge privet hedges guard the hidden castles so one can only sneak a peak into the lives of others while driving by.
We saw Martha and Ina's houses on Lily Pond Lane, however, when I rang the bell, no one came to the door. Wonder why?
Since it's still off season, we didn't see the A list celebs, just the D list ones.
Ok by me. They don't know who I am, and I don't care who they are.
I hid behind my borrowed privet hedge in seclusion.
Early June farmers' markets were all around selling the first bounty of the season.
Fresh beautiful asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries everywhere. I bought a bunch of everything to take home with me and make some goodies.
I caught up on my reading and finished 2 new terrific cookbooks while soaking up some sun.
A Platter of Figs and Two Dudes One Pan. Both books are my style of cooking.
Simple, fresh and easy.
