A box of these arrived today.

What a happy and delicious gift from my cousin and her family.

So, I'll postpone my diet and exercise plan until next week. I might as well wait until August, right?



It's hot today; 95-ish degrees. This morning we walked to the farmer's market and picked up some sweet corn, green beans, zucchini, and red potatoes.

This afternoon I'm making Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins from this recipe. Very tasty! I always make this in muffin form as it's easier to eat, store and/or take with you.


What's Cooking?

Lately, I've started to realize that I might actually enjoy cooking. I used to dislike cooking a lot, primarily because I wasn't familiar with different foods or ingredients. I grew up on a strict meat and potatoes diet with some canned vegetables thrown in. But, now I'm opening  myself up to new food types and even trying to prepare a few new recipies every month. I've started to enjoy putting together a meal and trying new recipies.

The husband and I often make homemade pizza rather than ordering out. We used to purchase premade crusts from the grocery store, but he recently mentioned his mom's homemade pizza crust so I decided to try one for myself. I used PW's homemade pizza crust recipe (half was used for this; the other half is in my freezer for a future use). It turned out quite well. The before is below. My half: spinach and Roma tomatoes; his half: mushrooms, green peppers and onions and pepperoni. We were both happy and the homemade crust was easy as could be.


Gotta love the pacifier hanging out and the little fist!


Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday! Josh turns 33, Wyatt turns six weeks and one day old.



I’ve delayed (and delayed and delayed) posting until I could find just the right thing to start with. Well, I think I’ve got it! Wyatt slept peacefully in nice three hour stretches last night: 9:30p-1a, 2a-5a, 5:45a-until now! This is definitely blogworthy in my book.

Yesterday, we went to the pediatrician for his one month check-up. He now weighs 9 lbs, 12 ozs which is 2 lbs, 2 ozs more than he weighed on his first visit. That equals a gain of one ounce per day; the doctor was quite happy. Wyatt is also up to 22″ long.
