Morning Sushi and a Cold Stroll Down St. Anthony Main

After our dessert sushi last week I thought it would be fun to have breakfast sushi.

The rice krispies, bananas and peanut butter made a repeat appearance.

I had Scott make a couple crepes to use as the nori. 


I made a few different varieties. The ones that had peanut butter fillings rolled up a lot better. Wish we had gotten Nutella.

Meadow and I had a chopstick fight after we were finished.

We debated on going ice skating since this weekend was the last that rinks were open. Instead we decided to take a walk around St Anthony Main.

We might be moving to this area this summer.

We wanted to check out the parking situation. I think it will work for us.

Despite it being sunny and in the 30's the wind made it feel really chilly.

Meadow decided to hitchhike along Main Street.


One of the reasons we're thinking of moving is that we miss living in a walkable neighborhood. I love biking, but it would be great to go outside and be within a stone's throw of parks, restaurants and everything that comes with that.


Meadow wanted to sit here all day.

Once we got home Meadow was really interested in my braid.

Naptime means more working on the house.

I'm reglazing and painting all of the basement windows. I've been at it for the last week. This was my last window that needed glazing.

Meadow has gotten so quick with doing puzzles lately. She's going to need some more challenging ones soon.

We had refried bean tostadas with pickled red onions, cabbage and avacados.

After all the house work and a homemade dinner we were pooped.



But I had the 2 hour season finale of Downton Abbey to watch. Since it was my night to put Meadow to bed she got to stay up and watch with me.

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.

A Day Berry Picking and Canoeing Around Grey Cloud Island

I've always made fun of Camelbak backpacks, but recently we got one for our hiking backpack and then one for Meadow's birthday present. At a garage sale I even picked up an old Camelbak.
Meadow got some birthday money from her Tuska grandparents. When I asked her what she wanted she picked a hiking backpack. We lucked out on finding one that holds a water resivor. I told her the bag was going to get heavier with water, but she still loved it. 

Even with it being the end of July already, we still had to get our annual berry picking in. Sadly our usual berry farm experienced hail damage in June and was closed for the summer.

We settled on going back to Sam Kedem Nursery Garden.
We hadn't been to Sam Kedem's for a few years and with our normal berry picking field out of service it just made sense.
The blueberries were inside of these nets and I kept getting stuck on the net. 
The berries were super tiny and not as plentiful as our usual place.
Meadow was loving her new back…

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in.

I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it.

School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class.



Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to live bef…
