Current Happenings in Centre County and Scotland

We are far away from home, but an email I received reminded me of all the wonderful fruits and veggies that are now in season in Centre County.  Find out what they are and where they can be purchased here.

Also, today at the  Boalsburg Farmers Market, there will be another cooking demonstration as well as great items to purchase and live music. Check it out here.

In rainy Edinburgh, we happily “carry on”, as the queen says.  We were surprised to find out that she is here in this city this week, celebrating Scotland as part of her Diamond Jubilee.  Which meant that we could not tour her “house.”  That would be the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

The upside of this is that Will and Kate will be here on Thursday for a coronation and a parade!

Our eating adventures continue.  Today we walked the Royal Mile and toured St. Mary’s Close.  We purchased buttery Shortbread House of Edinburg shortbread for that great hubby of mine from a gourmet food store.  He pronounced it very good.
