Well, I’m so excited, because I have decided to start something new on the blog, and I’m calling it Simple Saturday! I love coming to you twice a week, and sharing what’s going on at the BHK, but doing a whole ‘nother post every week? Well, I wasn’t quite sure! So I’ve decided to go with one Saturday every month. It’s not going to be a set Saturday, I’m just going to fit it in when I can. I’ll just be flying by the seat of my pants as the saying goes! When something quick and easy pops into my head that I think you all might enjoy, I’ll be sharing it with you! The one thing I can guarantee is that it’s going to be just plain and SIMPLE!
We all do so much during the work week, so weekends should be super laid back and easy, so the recipes, and maybe some cooking tips I’ll be sharing on Simple Saturday will follow suit. No long lists of ingredients, and difficult directions, I promise!
The idea of doing the extra post was mine, but I’m gonna give credit where credit is due, and the whole idea of calling it “Simple Saturday” was my husband Tom’s! We were walking through a little antique shop down in Cape May, New Jersey a few weeks ago, and we saw the milkshake glass from today’s post. I had to have it! Tom said it would be perfect for the wonderful Maple Milkshake he has when he goes up to Vermont each year with his friends on his motorcycle trip. He said it’s one of the best milkshakes he’s ever had! It’s smooth and creamy with just the right amount of maple syrup, AND it’s just plain simple! Tom said you guys would LOVE it! Then he suggested calling this extra post a month, Simple Saturday and the rest is history! I LOVE when someone does the thinking for me! So friends, that’ how Simple Saturday came to be! Now it’s time to kick back, pour yourself a big old Maple Milkshake and enjoy the weekend!
