I thought I would take a quick break from Color Your Summer II and show you what’s been growing around here…
You can already see bare spots where I’ve pulled heads of butter crunch for dinner.
Our soil has a high clay content but seems to always give us a productive garden. We feel very blessed.
He learned how to blow bubble gum bubbles this week.
He learned to wink.
She turned 3 months old yesterday!
She grows more beautiful and stronger everyday. Look at those long legs. I know this girl is going to be taller than me one day.
As a side note…we tried baking some of our produce this week. Not the usual suspects either…
We baked some corn on the cob. I heard that this is a pin on pinterest but haven’t pinned it myself. Simply put them on a baking sheet husk and all. Bake for 30-45 minutes at 350 degrees. It yields juicy, sweet, delicious corn and makes the husks easier to remove. I don’t think I will ever make corn on the cob any other way. Delish!
We also baked some kale into kale chips. Using this recipe. I used kosher salt instead of seasoning salt.
It looks strange but it was AMAZINGly good. You absolutely MUST try this recipe. My kids even loved it. Just make sure you eat it right out of the oven before it gets soft.
Hope you had a delicious weekend. See you bright and early tomorrow for more Color Your Summer!
