Minglewood is a Winner!

Our first stop on our return to town after a two week trip was to Minglewood Harborside. It just feels like home……a bonus was that the Serenitee group was offering a FREE appetizer that day and I had a $10 reward awaiting me as a Serenitee member. We were greeted in a friendly manner, seated with appropriate distancing and were offered efficient service. We ordered the nachos (a plate of LOVE), sushi and garlic parm tenders. The drinks were, as always, spot on. It was a win, win……thanks again Zach and Minglewood staff!

Overnight Oats

I’m late to the overnight oats game, but I’m now a big fan. Oats, chia seeds, almond milk, a little bit of honey, and then assorted nuts and sunflower seeds on top. I make a batch of five on Sunday night and have one for breakfast each school/word day. They are super yummy….albeit really filling. I’m looking for new topping ideas if anyone has any recipes they’d like to share!

Tip Top Tulips Worthy of a Ride

Yes, I know our wonderful Generous Gardeners have done a marvelous job on the boulevard with the tulip beds. They are truly stunning, free and available to anyone. But if you are a fan of tulips and the wonderful sight of thousands of blooms in a charming setting, you might want to check out Tip Top Tulips in Ispwich. Brought to you by the same folks who offer the School Street Sunflowers, they decided this year to offer tulip beds. And they are magnificent. Tickets available here. They are located at 71 Town Farm Road and there’s a smaller bed near the School Street Sunflower Field.

The beds are designed for strolling and photos. It is a bit muddy in some areas though plenty of straw has been utilized to help so plan accordingly. Very child friendly and a great photo opp! You can purchase single blooms for $1 each which includes the bulb (that’s a bonus….I am certain those bulbs are high quality). If you are a tulip lover, visit the boulevard and consider a trip to Ipswich soon.
