This week we have...
Classic Buttermilk Coffee Cake
Oven Pulled BBQ Pork
Cranberry Orange Bars
Outside my window... Nothin' but clear skies, and a forecast in the 90's. See? I knew I was right not to get my hopes up! Fall is NOT here yet, you tricky weather you!
I am thinking... I could go back to sleep right now. No one would know. Or out to breakfast. Or exercise... Clean my house? Nah. So much freedom!! What to do!? Well, blog I guess! :)
In the kitchen... I woke up early and made coffee cake for the boys, that's a first! So fun! There will be lots more yummy breakfasts this year. Last year it was either cereal or microwave oatmeal. Slacker me. Today I'll finish the cranberry orange bars I am inventing that were aborted halfway through last night... I created a new school lunch cookie instead... Yesterday was hectic.
I am wondering... What would you think if I started re-posting some of my older recipes? I was looking through them the other day, just for fun, and the photos made me cringe! They're all grey and yellow, bleck. I could just make them, retake pictures, and update the post, but I thought it would be fun to bring some of my favorites out of the archives for a re-post. What do you think?

Tissues, wipes, etc. But even though it still gets awfully hot during the day, the mornings are lovely, and I am excited to walk to school with the boys every day I can this year! Last year I barely woke up before they did, so we often just made it on time. That's one of the reasons I started this new habit of waking up before them. I know most people operate like that, but I've always clung a little too tightly to my sleeping time! I'm willing to finally trade an hour of sleep for a morning walk with my boyzenberries!
Around the house... It's so QUIET!!! It's a little weird, to be honest. I'm talking to Bracken a lot. Technically I only have two and a half hours to myself, but still, it's two and a half hours!
I am going... Back to choir!! We've been on our own "summer break", and we start again on Wednesday! I can't wait to sing again. We're singing the Star Spangled Banner at a Rockies (baseball) game on the 31st. Other than that, this week is surprisingly open... What am I going to do with myself??
Can I PLEASE go shopping in this grocery store in Moscow?!Something new about me... I am in love with grocery stores. I have so much fun in fancy ones! Like Wegmans, which I experienced for the first time when I visited my family in DC, Whole Foods (sometimes), or this amazing Asian market my friend directed me to. We went on Saturday after the farmer's market to find bean thread noodles. So much fun food!! Sure, I can't read the labels on half of it, but it's just fascinating to browse around. Oh, and they had cream buns. I'm more than a little obsessed with cream buns. Also something I discovered in DC. So yeah, when someone tells me they found a new specialty food store, I am so there. Or markets!! Outdoor, indoor, if there is interesting food, I'm there. I could visit them on dates! Odd? Perhaps. But I promise if you come with me we'll have all kinds of fun!
