Date Farms


 You can't visit Yuma without a drive to California...to enjoy the dates farms...So I took Middler for an afternoon drive.
 Thru this farming countryside..

We visited two date farms...and enjoyed date shakes...
I hate to say this...but we enjoyed the shakes soo much they were gone before I realized I wanted a picture...
And....we couldn't resist the  chocolate covered date filled with pecans! We didn't need supper that night!
 It was a beautiful scenic drive!

  4. I love dates but rarely think to purchase them. The date shakes must be delicious to distract a blogger! ;oD

    1. Linda matrimony or date squares are always a hit it seems when I make them. If you want a good recipe let me know k?
