Days on the farm are so busy right now, but full of fun and adventure.
It feels like I spend much of my time cooking. There certainly are a lot of meals in a day, and I'm trying to use up as much of the garden as I can.
This week I made apricot pecan muffins, for Pierce to take to school for breakfast.
A 'use up the garden' style casserole - with layers of potatoes, garlic, green peppers, tomatoes, and cheese. It was really good.
A late bloomer...
I've been scooping out watermelons and putting them into individual containers to make it easy to pack fruit for Pierce's lunches.
I recently saw a recipe for watermelon jam that I'm eager to try. I just need to pick up some lemons (I don't typically keep lemons around).
Cort and Reid started a Mother's Day out preschool program, 2 mornings a week.
They needed pictures to hang in their cubbies. So we went out on the porch to snap a few.
Cort (Note that there's no paci! He only uses it at night now) -
Reid (yes, I probably should've cleaned the dinner off his face first...)
And it's persimmon season! We're having a really good year for persimmons - quite the abundance out there.
So far I've done a persimmon cake and persimmon fudge! The cake recipe I came up with myself, but the fudge recipe I found online. It turned out super sugary, and it's in a 9x13 pan so I'm not sure we can eat it all before it goes bad. Anyone know if fudge freezes okay?
