But, in fact I should say that this is really a day of seeing my community rally together to help one another and to put the best face on a big loss to our historical downtown. The building that burnt, while not the prettiest, was still 100 years old and a part of our town's heritage. I hate to see it go.
I harvested sooo many sugar peas that I happily had enough to try pickling them in this great recipe that I found over at another one of my new blog crushes, The Smitten Kitchen, here. I am tucking right in to the batch that I somehow got made last night - oh yum.
