July Twenty-Fourth

“First {successful!} batch of raw nut butter. Peanuts are pretty easy so this peanut-almond-walnut batch is for Christian and Addy. Next up, a walnut-almond version for Mercy and I. I also want to try making raw nutter butter from sprouted nuts eventually!”

“It was another long day, tried to sit out in the quiet on my front step and enjoy my late dinner {gluten free pasta and pretty darn tasty sauce} alone in silence…and naturally my neighbors decided to start up a little evening fiesta. Oh well, you gotta love Brossard Drive!”

“Normally we put something like cheese or jam on a rice cake for snack but of course we were out of all the normal toppings. So instead Addy made her own rice cake. Yes that is ketchup, corn flakes, white rice and green sprinkles. Oh and breakfast still on her face. Hmmm.”

“So, I made a super tasty dinner  {black beans, garbanzo beans, tomato, red onion, avocado, fresh basil, rice vinegar…salad-ish meal} and it was incredibly colorful and beautiful. I was planning on taking a picture of it and went to get my camera, but naturally became distracted and next thing I know my dinner was gone. Oh well.”

“Drafted my first “real” sleeve pattern from Addy’s arm measurements (instead of freehand drawing it). I knew my math degree would come in hand long after teaching middle school!”

“I think my default picture is always dinner, when I’m tired and ready for bed. It was really good though.”

March Twenty-First

“I bought these ‘black’ beans at the market and when I opened them today, I discovered all of ten actual black beans. Then I cooked them and low and behold they became a (big) light brown bean. Let’s just say we had Mexican beans and rice instead of Brazilian black beans tonight!”
