The older kids recently took their annual assessment tests. It takes three days and the moms of the kids at the test center always bring cookies to enjoy on the last day. Peter and I stayed up and decorated these together the night before and it was FUN! No kids. Just us. Decorating cookies. :)
Do you own a pot big enough for two 5 lb. birds? This pot is pretty great. It ended in the biggest pot of chicken noodle soup I've ever made. These hens are the ones Peter helped to butcher that were grown on our friends' property.
This is a not-very-good picture of a very, very good dinner and evening with friends. This lovely couple from church said they wanted to have us over for dinner, but since their house isn't designed to accomodate our size of a group(!), they brought the food over to our house instead. We enjoyed corned beef and cabbage, potatoes and beer bread. In the picture, we were cutting into the apple pie. We really enjoyed someone else's cooking!
Zucchini Bread. Used a recipe from my new whole grain baking book and some of that zucchini I squirreled away in my freezer last fall.
Just root beer floats. Haven't done that in a while, and boy was it good. This is Amelia's first root beer float. She was impressed. Ice cream AND soda!
