A Minneapolis Farmers Market Visit and Not Much Else

Since having a farmers market in our neighborhood we haven't been to the big Minneapolis one all summer.

Meadow's also been getting braver at paying for things she wants.


We missed you Minneapolis Farmer's Market.

We picked up a lot of things on this trip.

We start every summer and fall grocery run by getting produce from one of the farmer's markets. Now that I had all the veggies we would need for more than a week I could figure out our meals for the next week or more.


One of the things we picked up at the market was this giant donut.

Meadow wanted her own and complained the whole way home. Once we were home she all about a piece of the big donut.

Theo was mad that he didn't get any. We ate the whole thing in one sitting.

Meadow and I decided to have a little daddy-daughter craft time. We did some watercolors together.

Then we bummed around the house all day.

I think Meadow and Theo watched Toy Story 2 for the fifth time in a a few weeks.

Little buddy loves when he does get to eat.

For dinner we had BLTs from our farmer's market finds.

We ended the night watching Toy Story 3.

I thought we'd never seen this one, but it turns out Brooke and I had watched years ago. At least Meadow was super excited about it.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears . I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

How Can We Make Life Less Boring?

This weeks bread is Ciabatta. Scott had made this a few summers ago so we thought we'd try a variation and add caramelized onions and herbs. Nothing like cutting onions in the morning.  I'm really hoping Peter Reinhardt will find our blog and see that I'm making everything in his book and want to do a movie with me. It'll be called Brooke and Peter. I'm also gunning for a movie once Mark Bittman passes away. OK, I'm not. That' just weird. We did make oatmeal raisin pancakes from Bittman's Food Matters cookbook. Oatmeal pancakes? Yes please! These turned out much better than the oatmeal raisin waffles we had a few months back. I tackled this darn puzzle again.  Peanut (our cat if you didn't already know) loves whining. Mostly he wants to go outside or in the basement. This time I gave in and he had some kind of deja vu to his alleycat youth. Scott played on his phone while Peanut played outside. We both t
