I decided to bring back the photo diary. I enjoy looking back at the posts to see how I used to live my life.



As winter goes on the lazier I get on Sundays. Scott is worse then me, he is still in bed after I get up.



Scott had breakfast when we went out on Saturday to Mickey's. So we have brownies instead.



Just kidding. I have steel cut oats and a banana. I eat out of the pot to save on dishes.



Scott has chips and salsa.



Our shower has been broken for 2 weeks, this time the handle broke off.



We finally get dressed. It's warmer out in Minnesota so no long sleeved shirt today.



First we install our new doorbell.



Good thing there's an app for that.




Yay!



We head over to our local Menards. The store is closing so everything is super cheap.



We load up on things we might need.



We stop at a vintage pop up shop. It's the last day and everything is half off.



Then we head over to Home Depot for things Menards didn't have. Some &#$% stole our cart that had my reusable bag in it. I try not to get too upset in hopes that the person who took it used it for their purchases instead of a plastic bag.



We bought a bunch of seeds for our garden. I can't wait for spring.



We make dinner, aka breakfast.



Spinach and eggs. It looks like a mess but it was tasty.



I end the night by making chocolate heartlettes in honor of valentines tomorrow.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Freaster Sunday

We decided to stay home for Easter this year. We've missed the past few years and seem to be okay with it. We still celebrate in our own way. For breakfast I made oat bran. This time I sweetened it with a little agave. Scott seems to think I only like my oats bland, but that's not true. I make truly interesting oats. Agave, my friends, does not make oatmeal tasty. If you're looking for a quick, but complex variation try this recipe the next time you have a few extra minutes -- unless you like bland-meal. Steel-cut Oats w/ Apple Chips, Raisins and Cinnamon 1 C Water 2/3 C Steel Cut Oats Handful of Apple Chips 1/4 C Raisins 2 T Brown Sugar 1 t Cinnamon Pinch of Salt Cook the first two ingredients for a few minutes over medium heat. When water starts to simmer lower heat and add dried fruit. Cook until tender. While still on heat add a teaspoon of cinnamon, two tablespoons brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Eat. Scott looked for his Easter ba

Food Daze

Remember why we needed a freezer? We did order one from Best Buy that week, but it was on backorder until July 21. We still didn't get it and now they are saying it could be August 28. You have no idea how hard it is to go through the whole summer not being able to make our own ice cream or popsicles. Buying ice cream is nothing compared to making homemade. Please cross your fingers with us in hopes we get it soon. Since Scott had to be to work at 11. We got up early and drove to the farmers market. We had to get there fast, so we couldn't bike. As Brooke noted a few posts back, it seems like more and more people are coming to the Sunday market. It can be pretty chaotic. It took us nearly ten minutes to park. There was so much to choose from this time around. It's a lot more fun to go to the market this time of year. It's really amazing what diverse crops grow in Minnesota's short summer. Makes one wish we didn't waste so much fertile land
