Fresh is Best

Fresh pico de gallo for Taco Night!

It has a secret ingredient the family hasn't discovered yet! 
(How to hide veggies in plain sight!)

Arrival of My Arch Nemesis!!!

This evening I happened to look out my kitchen window, while getting a much needed glass of water (Just Dance with my daughter), and guess who has shown up?

Paulie the Groundhog!

Heading to the shed when he hears my snarl of dismay!

And pops right out the other side to much some weeds. 

With peals of laughter, my family declares, "Let the Games Begin!"

If you click the groundhog label, you will be able to see him when he first showed up with two other siblings. They didn't stick around for long, but Paulie loves it here.
A groundhogs life span is 6 to 8 years, but ones as well fed as ours can live 14 years. He loves sweet potatoes and bok choy. The bok choy is already in (he must have smelled it) and Hubby said we will go find him some sweet potato vines this weekend. Nothing like planting the garden for EVERYONE!

Morning Baking

A little aromatherapy this morning with a basic Apple Coffee Cake.  I added a pinch of cinnamon, ground cloves, and nutmeg to the batter and some rolled oats to the topping.  This is a great starter recipe that happily takes all the experimenting you can think up.

Happy Tuesday!

Good Morning, Mushrooms!

This cute little mushroom village greeted me this morning, from my kitchen window. 
I just had to snap a pic!

Saturday Dinner

A beautiful 4.78 lb. pork shoulder roast from Schuman's Meats. I'm trying a Red Fork brand cooking sauce they had on a shelf. It smells marvelous! 

This easy dinner will give me more time in the garden today.

Have a fantastic weekend!
