This weekend marks the start of the Kentucky Derby. Throw a "Southern Traditions" inspired party or just dig out that springy, floral dress for the festivities.
Saturday morning I plan on venturing down to the farmers market. Instead of buying the week's veggies at the grocery store, the farmers market helps Colorado family farmers stay in business. Not only do you get the most nutritious and fresh produce, but it helps the environment by cutting down the average 2,000 miles most produce must travel to reach your grocer.
My family is in the midst of redecorating so we've spent our weekends shopping for furniture and fabrics. Antiques are about the only thing we can agree on plus it gives us another reason to support local businesses. A list of the more than 50 vendors can be viewed here.
Lastly, Cinco De Mayo is a great opportunity to throw a fiesta! This grapefruit margarita is a great twist on the traditional recipe. Not only do we plan on making some margs, but some chicken and vegetarian fajitas as well.
