Fresh Green Beans

Our green beans did not grow well so we are buying green beans to can. So far we have canned 30 pounds. Not nearly enough for our family but a good start.

Hope asked me to take her picture because we were laughing so hard but somehow this is the face in the picture. 
It has been fun doing more things together as a family.

Ten Months

This little boy is crawling every where. It happened quick. His crawl is comical because he does not want knees to touch the ground. He loves to play under the table at the farmers market. 

At ten months old. (Ouch it hurts to say that) he is a mobile machine. I noticed last night he was walking along the couch. He is getting so big. He will eat just about anything we give him although he loves yogurt. He still sleeps with me and I love it. Okay, I love it but I wish he would give me a night of sleep. Don't tell Jacob but I am going to make him take naps without being in my arms. Really, I am. 
 What else can I tell you about this precious baby boy. He has a smile that makes you want to give him anything and he loves our pets. 

Banana Truffles

I found a recipe on Pinterest for banana bread truffles and all I could think was how I had banana bread in the freezer. Then last week I had a extra loaf of blueberry bread. 
They were a huge hit. I will definitly be making these again.

Garden Veggies

Something in our garden is growing well. 
Now it is time to start cooking all these yummy zucchinis. I am thinking grilled and baked and turned into chips and made into bread.

Homemade salsa

It started simply. A neighbor gave us some onions and tomatoes. That's all it took to decide we should try our hand at homemade salsa. 
That has now turned into making 40 jars setting in my pantry with plenty more to come. We have used several differerent recipes. But our favorite is 
6 tomatoes 
1 can diced tomatoes 
1 onion 
1 jalapeƱo 
1/4 fresh cilantro 
But I encourage you to look at some of the recipes I have on Pinterest. We have made mild and salsa.
