A Slow Burn Sunday

The three of us usually sleep in pretty late since Meadow likes staying up late and sleeping in.

We snuggled up at some point during the morning. I was conked out from a wedding the night before.

Now that she's more alert she's realizing she's not in the womb anymore and has been much fussier. She's needs movement to fall asleep and we have to help her almost every time. It's a little frustrating some days but I just have to tell myself it's just a phase. She's in what's called the 4th trimester so she needs motion and noise to calm her down. And she needs to be held all the time. 

No more tummy time for her. She just flips herself back over.

Between doing work (on a Sunday...I know) I checked in with my babes.

I worked on a video for a real estate startup out of the Twin Cities.

Once I was done I spent the rest of the day with my three best buds.

My days are becoming too relaxing with her sleeping on me all the time. 

Despite a busy summer, our garden is growing like gangbusters. We planted some Ichiban eggplant from Webber's Greenhouse again this year.

We also planted some tomatillos for the first time ever. We really didn't need to. As always, we left a row in the middle to get in between the two sides of the garden. In this row a humungous tomatillo plant, ground cherries and a few cherry tomato plants grew. This seems to happen every year.

The tomatoes are a nice size already, but I think they'll be a few weeks until ripe.

All of our sunflowers also grew from the compost. I transplanted them to the fence line. I have no idea where this varietal came from.

We used the last of the 2012 venison for a Tuska classic times two: stuffed cabbage and green peppers.


I continue to try to be a good husband. Since Brooke was busy with the little one, I took the laundry down.

Brooke and Meadow decided to join me outside before dinner.

She loves being outside despite being whiny indoors. 

I think this is our best garden yet. Although we say that every year. Maybe we are just getting better.

Hey. It's called kapusta. Sheesh. Hungarian, specifically. Polish is in soup form. But you probably knew that. We're probably related also.

I am very interested in your ice cream making and had a few questions:

-What type/brand ice cream maker do you use? -Recommend any recipe books? -If you would start again, what would you do differently?

Great blog,

Anonymous. We have the Cuisanart Pure Indulgence. The other option, if you have a Kitchen Aid mixer, is their ice cream maker attachment. I feel like Kitchen Aid is better fresh and Cuisanart is better after being put in the freezer overnight. The Ben and Jerry's cookbook is perfect. Has three different cream bases and you really can go anywhere from there. Plus it's got all their classic recipes. Also don't be afraid of raw eggs in your ice cream mix. It has never been an issue.

Thanks for the ice cream tips. It is so great that you went camping. We are going in a few weeks with our 2yr old and I think she is going to love it. They grow fast so don't blink!

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part I

Theo and I go for a walks or wagon rides while Meadow finishes up her school work. This is also the last photo we have of "baby," his blue teddy bear. Missing you "baby" aka Blue Boo.
Baby went missing and we can't figure out where he is. 
Meadow has been on a sewing streak again. This time she made a skirt with some leftover fabric from a dress I made her.
She wanted to add the zig zag design to it too.

Another one of those papa and Theo walks around the block. He's not fast, but he loves his balance bike.
Theo has suddenly wanted to join in our wiffle ball games. 
Meadow and her outfits.

I'm more confused by the two weirdos playing horsey down our long driveway.
Our local liquor store does curb side pickup and puts your order in your trunk for you. Or in our case our bike trailer.

Of course I wear mask when I'm picking the beer up.


This about it this week. Kind of uneventful.

Coronavirus: Week 5 - Easter Etc.

Despite the coronavirus the Easter Bunny still came. Meadow had put a note on our door for the bunny that the baskets were by the front door. So then he wouldn't have to come into our place.



We don't want the Easter Bunny to spread the virus.
