In The English Kitchen today  . . .  Lemon Butter Cod. This will have everyone reaching for their forks!  All in one and on the table in next to no time at all.  

Have a fabulous Friday!  I am not sure what the day holds for me here.  The weather looks a bit gloomy!  It rained buckets and buckets yesterday, but so far today looks to be dry. Whatever you get up to, don't forget!

And I do too! 


  1. All your rain and gloominess is probably from the hurricane moving up the coast. Cloudy here, but no rain forecast till early next week. Cute finds today, always tempted but hardly ever follow through. I'm knitting a couple of scarves, getting ready for the chilly days in the 'ber' months. Have a good day.

    1. I know what you mean! There are never enough hours in the day to do all the things I want to do either! I need to knit myself a scarf also! I love the "ber" months! You have a good day also! xoxo

  2. The "ber" months are the best. Lots of interesting Friday finds. I'm off to buy the fixings for your Lemon Butter Cod. Enjoy your day. Love and hugs, Elaine

  3. Hi Marie~

    Wow, so many beautiful and clever ideas today! I loved the painted rocks, such a fun idea! The lemon for breathing was really interesting, I'm all in on that one. The crochet ideas are right up my alley, I loved them all! Thank you for always sharing the best ideas! By the way, my mouth started watering when I read the recipe for the lemon cod, yum! We could sure use some of that rain here in Idaho. Yesterday, the smoke was so bad, you couldn't stay outside for any length of time or you had a hard time breathing. Today looks a little better though, fingers crossed! Have a wonderful Friday, sweet friend! XOXO

    Hugs and Love,
