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.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
