November Farmers Market and Pizza with Friends

Today was our last day to go to the Farmers Market in 2016. 
And it was still nice enough to bike there.


I'm always amazed at how much food you can still get mid-November.
Few people go at this time in the year.

We stocked up so we had enough produce to last us until Thanksgiving.


And then some.

Meadow insisted on getting the strawberries from the reseller. Some were squished by the time we got home. Meadow ate them all and made a rainbow.

Of course now I had to make a grocery list.

We were having friends over for dinner and really needed to go grocery shopping. First stop Costco.

Everyone else has a cart full of crap. We stick with the healthy stuff.

After we got home Scott prepped all the toppings for homemade pizzas.

And then we baked them up with Brent and Shannyn.

Meanwhile Meadow and Eleanor had the time of their lives.

It's been awhile since we have had homemade pizza. I think pizza is the only thing I could eat every week.

The highlight was apple, turnip and buffalo mozzarella pizzas with a bit of spinach with a alfredo sauce. 

And hanging with friends.

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
