Baking and Forgetting to Take Pictures

Theo's always building something on our living room rug.

Meanwhile, Meadow is suddenly really good at drawing.

If she keeps practicing, she's going to be incredible by middle school.

Meadow has been asking for a coconut cream pie since she had some on our big road trip to the UP. After having the ingredients on hand for a couple of weeks, we finally started with the crust.

Meadow requested breakfast like Grandpa likes. Waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. 

I can't find the recipe on the internet, but I made my go to oatmeal whole wheat waffles. They're technically a pancake recipe, but work great.
I finished the pie with the whipped cream we made during breakfast.

Lots of baking lately. I made another gingerbread cake.

This one was amazing.

On Monday night Theo helped me make a homemade take on Hamburger Helper. He ate a bunch of cheese while we were prepping. Of course once it was fully cooked, Theo wasn't having it. Apart from sushi and spaghetti and meatballs, this kid has been so picky recently.

Somehow we were left with a chunk of cheese that looked like Wisconsin.

The second week proved to be more of a challenge for our local month. We are starting to crack down on wedding plans. We both bought our wedding attire from the Mall of America. I did feel a little guilty about that. I had originally wanted to buy my dress from a vintage store. I have been looking since we got engaged (even before that) and everything I found wasn't in my size or a style I liked.  Then we bought some candles at Target while doing our registry. Scott bought lunch at Jimmy John's.  All our groceries have been local. At least we're still good about that. Scott was in southern Minnesota yesterday shooting a wedding. I didn't think he was going to come back that night and scared me when he got home.     My sister's wedding is coming up in 2 weeks and I get the honor of making the cake. I tested out different cake recipes.  While Scott made pancakes.   We started out eating by each other.  Then Scott move

Honeymoon But With Kids: Bayfield, Porcupine Mountains for a Night and Unexpected Motel

Once back on the mainland Meadow got to pick up her Junior Ranger badge.   This one was made of wood! Before heading to our next destination we went in search of lunch in Bayfield. We got a simple lunch from a tiny little bakery, the Starlit Kitchen . Meadow says this was the best sandwich she ever had.  The bread was very good.
