OK, One More Trip to the Minneapolis Farmers Market

My solo breakfast. Everything homemade. Besides the banana, I don't know how to make bananas.

Maybe we can grow them when we make that big move to Central America.

"I don't need no stinken diapers."

Disposable that is. She's moved on.

We went to the farmers market for one last trip this year. 

This time of the year they don't need a freezer.

Some guy said to me, "You better pay me to take a photo of my grandson," as I took this shot.

I'll miss you local produce.

Meadow doesn't giggle very often and when she does I try to keep it going but it never works. 

Instead they both made very serious faces.


I hear these two.

On our way to the farmers market we noticed the car felt odd. Turned out it had a gouge in the sidewall. I ordered a new set from Costco since my tires were more or less shot anyways

This week we got cabbages, bell peppers, carrots, sweet potatoes, poblanos and lots of onions. All this for only 22 dollars. 

My dad makes looms for my sister's Etsy shop. On a recent trip to Hobby Lobby I saw a loom for making socks. I've never been successful at knitting socks so I thought this would be perfect for me. I sent my dad a photo of one. He never responded. The other day we got a package in the mail from my dad. In it was the sock loom done exactly right, he's so smart. 

We then ate leftover skillet carnitas.

Mr. Mike also sent us a DQ gift card. We bought buster bars with the money. I love buster bars.


This week is the last week the city will collect yard waste. We had some leaves that needed to be raked. 

Brooke decided to come out with Meadow in my jacket. I think she broke the zipper for good.

I had her in the Moby wrap and put on one of Scott's coats to make life easier. She was nice and warm in there. 

I had to make smoked sausage for dinner. I couldn't decide on one, but I finally settled for Polish.

The link was as tall as Meadow.

I had to pat it dry before smoking.

We borrowed a stovetop smoker from Brooke's gig at the Nordic Ware Factory Store.

While the smoker did it's thing, we hung out with little Meadow.

I put her in the Ergo so I could have free hands. She loves chewing on the straps lately. 

About two hours later I added the sauages to split pea, kale and chicken stock. Brooke later complained it was too thin. I thought it was pretty damn good.

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

With Fall Comes Apples

  Brooke decided to make breakfast for herself. I wanted some OJ, so I poured her a glass too. Bland oatmeal is just what I needed. Scott said he was going to call his mom. My aunt got back to me about attending our wedding. She was going to have foot surgery and couldn't travel. Sometimes I wish all my family lived in one area like Brooke's. I had to tell my mom. The night before I had my bridal shower/bachelorette at my house with my Twin Cities ladies. We had dinner and drinks at Psycho Suzi's later that night.  I was able to finish cleaning up before Scott got off the phone. My mom and I tend to talk a lot. I'm pretty bad a keeping phone calls short. Since we both had off and it was nice out we decided to go apple picking. I was really worried we wouldn't make it this year with the wedding coming up fast. We decided to go to the Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard near Jordan ( the city, not our neighb
