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:
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.
