Celebrating My Town's History

O.K., I haven't forgotten where my stove is located nor have my DH & I cut back on the number of meals we enjoy each day!  We've been involved in the planning of Long Meddowe Days.  This great event each May is a celebration of the colonial history of my town, Longmeadow.  Long Meddowe Days was last weekend, so now I need to replenish my fridge and also my freezer!

This weekend festival is enjoyed by town residents and visitors from my area.  History Tours, a Craft Fair, Food, Entertainment and other events for families to enjoy are all part of the weekend FuN!  Below are photos shared - compliments of the Long Meddowe Days Committee.

There is always a supply of Yummy Yogurt & Solar Green Tea in the fridge, but it's time to bake a batch of Cinnamon Craisin English Muffin Loaves.  And also so many other foods!  My list is growing, but Long Meddowe Days was great!

We did enjoy!

That sounds like fun. My husband and I love small town events like that. We have farmer's market and craft fairs frequently in the town we've moved to. Last weekend was Founder's Day Celebration but we weren't able to go. With summer coming you can stock up on fresh fruit and veggies. You won't have to cook quite as much maybe. :)

Fun, fun!!! It sounds like you had a blast. Every town should have something like this. Happy cooking!

Stacey & Pam- This event for my New England town is sponsored by the Longmeadow Historical Society. Our history begins in the 1630's and The Gravestone Tour (learning about the old gravestones)was fascinating. History is great!

In a couple of weeks the local Strawberries will be ripe! :)
