A fairly regular, if not weekly, post to share photos of random moments in our lives. No particular rhyme or reason to them, just things we’ve done, or small bits of our lives I’ve finally taken notice of. Thanks for popping by and taking a peek into our week, so far:
Isn’t he just adorable?! Trying to capture some of the more simple moments with Sammy these days. He spends multiple times a day looking out the window, waiting for daddy to come home. If he thinks he hears hubby’s old truck pull up, Sam climbs up on the couch to look out the window. Partly excited to have daddy home and partly excited to watch daddy park his truck and trailer.
The big experiment this week was homemade rhubarb ketchup. Turned out super tasty and processed a bunch of jars. Now they’re sitting on our pantry shelves, thus beginning the preserve season. Actually, Marcus started us off by picking radishes and asparagus. Shelves will slowly start to fill from here on out. Find the recipe for the rhubarb ketchup on the “My Living Nutrition” blog (http://mylivingnutrition.com/2013/06/29/homestyle-rhubarb-ketchup/)
We had a surprise harvest of garlic scapes from our garden (pretty sure hubby must have slipped them in at some point since he’s growing them for his CSA customers). We also harvested our first tomato of the season!! The vines are loaded and this hot weather is helping them ripen in record time (insert proud tomato growing mama smile).
So this happened finally… It’s probably looong overdue, but converted Sam’s crib to a toddler bed. He’s been ready for a while, but this poor mama, hasn’t been. Don’t want my baby growing up, but looks like I can’t stop it 😉
Simple pleasures… green smoothie in the morning. Made from 1 banana, 1 cup of coconut milk, and 2 cups fresh spinach from the garden. Never get tired of fresh veggies from the garden or all the tasty fruit in season right now.
