Okay so picture this.  It is a little chilly in the house after I have been up working for a while.  I even bake a loaf of bread and still it is chilly in the house.  Outside it is breezy and raining.  Finally, I decide to start a fire in the woodstove to take the chill off the house.  Oh, did I forget to mention it is JUNE 1ST!?  Really Mother Nature?  Could we not have some sun and warmth, please.  It is June not February or March.

Ok, I'm done.

Here are the delicious banana donut holes I made the other day along with the recipe I made them from if anyone is interested.  I fried them in half coconut oil and half extra light olive oil.  They disappeared pretty quickly!

Not too much else new here, have more lettuce and spinach ready to pick and all the beans have sprouted, including the edamame, so am excited about that.  Have quite a few berries on the strawberry and raspberry plants, but need the sun to make them ripe, so won't hold my breath.

The yogurt in the crock pot turned out very well.  The sour cream did not get very thick, so it got fed to Pig.  (Will have to try it again or perhaps a different recipe.)  He has also been getting fed the extra goat milk from Rachel and Monica (now that their kids are sold), and Meeah and Jake even have goat milk in their food in the morning, which they love!!!

Liam has a tournament (baseball) that starts this Friday and school for both kids is wrapping up.  Can't believe Kara was just beginning high school and now she will be a sophomore.  Where does the time go?



  1. OMG the donut holes were AMAZING!! You have too much energy and are such an overachiever! Please rub off on me, would you!? Love hearing about your adventures in gardening and cooking though. Inspires me. You have beautiful energy, woman! :) Have an awesome weekend!

  2. So great to meet you and your mom in person at MENF! I look forward to keeping up with your adventures on CI. Those donuts look so good....too good...why did you show me those donuts! Now the zombie donut craving has been planted in my brain....! ;)
