Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  A bit of Ketchup
I have a lot on my needles, but none of it is really blogable or blogworthy right now, but I feel a bit guilty for not updating, so here's what I've been up to.
I got this cookbook from my book club and I'm so happy I did. I think slow cookers are genius inventions, but when you don't eat meat, you have to get creative with recipes. How much stew can one couple eat? This book is seriously a godsend. I made the veggie potpie with biscuit crush- cheap, delicious and so easy. This book will definitely be seeing more use.

Aside from making yummy food, we've been visiting the zoo a lot, enjoying the summer. Check out these cuties:

Is your mama a llama?

And, since I've been neglecting my Secret Pal Questions, here's my answer to last week-
What's your favorite summertime drink?
I drink lots of ice water during the summer, but I love suntea (when it's sunny!) and Kool-ade lemonade. Classy, I know! We don't really get too much warm weather here, though.

and this week's:
As a kid, what did you look forward to most about summer vacation/break/holiday?
Honestly, I've always been a total homebody. There was no summer camp or anything for me. I always loved endless afternoons at home though. I was hardly ever bored with chickens to chase, a huge swingset, and a garden to hide in. When I got older, I spent my summers reading or knitting on the bench swing while the dogs panted in the sun.

Ohmygosh! Having alpacas at your zoo just totally ROCKS!!!! I'm jealous and may have to drive to your zoo (It's do-able, really! there's a hint for you :P) just to see their adorable faces :)

Happy Monday :)
