From The Good Life

We spent Easter weekend with Tim's family in Minnesota. The weekend was filled with all of my favorite things in Southwestern Minnesota. Saturday morning started with a visit to Schmidt's Bakery in Saint James.

After harvesting some landscape rocks out of the farm field of a good friend of ours, we'd worked up an appetite. Pointing out the rocks you want makes you hungry doesn't it? We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Solar Drive In in Springfield. I've been following Francine and her mother Deanne since our visit there last Fall. On Saturday, I stopped to introduce myself and found out Francine will be leaving soon for England. I was glad to hear she'll continue blogging from across the pond.

A few months ago, Deanne and Francine blogged about a new oil they'd discovered in their quest for Minnesota produced or grown products. Camelina Oil is produced from the Camelina plant by a farmer in Lamberton. I'd just mentioned to Tim we should see if we can visit the farm and purchase some oil. As I was saying goodbye to Deanne, I noticed the Camelina Oil for sale on their counter. I will be trying this in a recipe soon and will share my results.

The best things about blogging are meeting new people and discovering unique products!!


  1. Aww how fun! I absolutely LOVE meeting other bloggers!

  2. Sounds like you had a great trip! Haven't heard of the oil before, look forward to your review:@)

  3. I can't wait to hear more about this oil and how you use it!
