A Red, White and Blue Jubilee

4 Jun
A photo of the Jubliee pageby Francine

It’s been a festive weekend here in England (and a festive few weeks leading up to the holiday weekend, as stores decorated their windows with flags and pictures of the queen).  Tomorrow the UK calendar officially marks a special holiday in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, which also means a 4 day weekend!  It’s been fun to observe the decorations, events and special offers…I even saw commemorative dish soap for sale!

Tomorrow I’m planning to share a special Jubilee-inspired recipe, which also happens to be perfect for summer picnics and potlucks. 

So check back tomorrow…but in the mean time enjoy these snapshots!  :)
