I love this lady's hat.....she’s checking out the racing stats, drinking a Mint Julep,
and posing, for the photographer. She looks effortlessly chic.
Since I won't be attending the "Race for the Roses" today, I think I'll just set back and dream about attending and perhaps owning this fabulous hat. It's a rainy day here in Northern California, and we had planned this morning to go out and see our horse. However, he's probably very wet and not smelling too much like roses after all the rain last night; so I think were going to just stick around the house.
I'm going to do something very simple....I think I should be able to handle that today...I'll go make some simple syrup for my Mint Juleps and perhaps make a pie. I found two fantastic looking recipes and I haven't decided which pie I'm going to make. Joyce at "Flour Power" posted a wonderful looking "Derby Day Pie" and Libby at "Twirl and Taste" posted a very tasty looking "Derby Tipsy Pie."
I should probably get busy.
Dosen't the Derby count as a holiday....from dieting?
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
