Springtime Nests and a toddler Gooseberry bush

Schlafly farmers market in Maplewood was our first stop this morning, the last of the Winter markets.

Queen’s Cuisine Bakewell tarts are a true joy and we snaffled two, to enjoy with a cuppa later on.  Those Eccles cakes are pretty darn good too.  The founder of Queen’s Cuisine is a Brit in the Mid-West like me, so I always love to stock up!  Her baking is so good.

I got me a Gooseberry bush (this one is a toddler, but it will grow!) from Yellow Tree Farms.  Gooseberries always remind me of my Grandma who had a massive and very spikey Gooseberry bush in her garden!

Mushrooms from Ozark Forest Mushroom.  These guys had a mushroom rub which I wish I had bought, sounds delicious.  Next time!

Black bear bakery pasties.  I bought the Saturday Morning Bun from Black Bear and it was perfect!  I love their price labels too.

When we came home we made some Springtime nests which are always an Easter (or anytime really!) highlight.

If you want to make them, and I can assure you, you do, here are the ingredients.

Nests
8oz chocolate
2 tablespoons honey
2oz/half a stick butter
3oz/about 2 cups cornflakes or crushed up shredded wheat (whichever you think makes the best nests, I used Sheedded wheat)
Mini chocolate eggs
