So the ladies at church have started a study on a book called…

I’m loving this book! It’s so beautiful. It reads more like poetry than a study book. It will kick your butt though, so beware…READ IT!!

Nesting…

15 Sep

So I’ve definitely been nesting, the problem is our nursery is covered in sheetrock dust, so not much is going on in there. The only thing I can do is cook. Lots of that is going on here, and our freezer is busting at the seems.

Bread bread bread. Pumpkin Carrot, Zucchini, Blueberry Zucchini, and Banana Walnut!

Homemade Tomato soup from here http://www.thyhandhathprovided.com/2009/03/classic-tomato-soup.html

This is a labor of love, but very yummy.

Lots of Maters. I halved the recipe

I blanched them so they would be easier to peel. Boil for around 10-15 seconds, plop them in an ice bath, then peel away.

Voilà!

Next seed them. I just cut them in half and stuck my thumbs inside. Atticus looooves tomatoes, so he got all the juicy scraps!

In the pot they go with the tomato paste, onions, and homemade pesto. mash things up a bit, and let them simmer for half an hour.

Run it through a food processor or blender, and you have some great tomato soup!

Lots of other soups going in the freezer this week.

Maybe it’s because I thought fall was here, and then it became ridiculously hot and muggy again today. Or maybe I’m just tired of being in a house where everything is out of place and there is sheetrock dust all over, but I really want to go back here!

 

Usually once I’ve been somewhere, I want to find a new place for our next vacation, but I could go back to WA every year! Maybe we’ll take our little girlie with us next year?
