Summer Fun

30-Minute French Baguettes. Really good. And only five ingredients. That same night I made Mediterranean beef stew with tomatoes, red wine vinegar, veggies, herbs, olives and capers. Not a bad dipping "sauce" for fresh bread!

I love summer and the huge fruit population. It's all cheap, plentiful and tastes so good. Seems a little early for good peaches and nectarines, but they have been spectacular. The vegetables and herbs have been great too. I'm buying way too much because it all looks so good.

I made more wonky house blocks. I think I need four more to make a little baby quilt. The sewing has taken back seat to summering kids, work, laundry and cleaning. The guild has its monthly Sew Day this Saturday, so I'll catch up on some projects then.

College boy and his friend set sail in a the pool. They ventured out back to the pond and eventually carried it to the big lake so they could cool off in the water.

Here's a funny collection of letters to the Tooth Fairy.
