Wow...our gardens are completely out of control! Zucchinis, cucumbers, tomatoes, kale, chard...oh my! It's great and feels so good to be eating our own veggies. The basil was starting to get attacked by beetles, so we rescued it over the weekend and set to work making pesto to freeze for the winter. We ended up with ten jars...each the perfect size for a meal! It's so nice to have fresh pesto again. And yes, it's still one of my favorite foods!
The little one and I celebrated our friend's birthday today! We surprised her with a cake and presents, a homemade banner, heart rocks, and a little note on the sidewalk (she walks by our house on her way to work). The cake was deeelicious! We used the "Maple Cake" recipe from "A Waldorf Kindergarten Snack Book" and substituted a gluten-free mix for the flour. We picked fresh blackberries across the street and added them to the top. Yum! Happy Birthday Maria!!!!!
And sorry I didn't get a link list for y'all this week! I am bogged down with a lot of work (yay!) and haven't had much time for anything else these nights...so why don't you share a link that you are loving with me? Oh yes, that would be fun!
