it's salsa time!

thanks to a little help from my sister Hannah and her good friend we made a few different batches of fresh salsa from the veggies (and citrus orchard) from dad's big garden! tomatoes, onions, peppers, spices, and tangy fruit juice all from our little farm on evans rd. they turned out great and all have there own little flavor... a spicy tomato-pepper with a big kick, a tangy citrus, fruity pineapple, fresh homeade pico de gallo, cleansing crisp cucumber, and an amazing bruschetta! deliciousss!

happy anniversary bubba!

sorry ive been MIA recently but let me tell you... the cooking and crafts are about to begin. summer school is over and nanny emily is in full bloom so ive got plenty of time to sew, cook, and craft with my little ones. but for a little bridge between the two parts of summer i got to have a little trip with my bubba! we went camping and to the monterey bay aquarium for a two year anniversary trip. i certainly love him a lot and had a fabulous time reading around the fire, hiking up the river, cooking outdoors, and watching the sharks at the aquarium with him! i love you brandon!
