What traveling did you enjoy this year?  “Last year I went to the Cape Cod Cranberry Harvest.  The weather was so beautiful, and I made a lot of friends on the trip.  It was so refreshing to just relax and let someone else drive and plan the day. Right now I am anticipating going on this years Tractors & Tulips!” Thank you, Glenda Graybill for this wonderful recipe!
