The Flume Trail

Earlier this week, we went on a lovely walk, and it just smelled like summer. Porter and Dawson really enjoyed themselves.

This morning, on my continuing quest to feed my family healthy food, I took Molly to the natural foods store to buy some organic meat. This being Alaska, there was not a huge selection. And it was expensive. I think it is worth the price, but we either have to start catching a lot of fish or eating more vegetarian meals to make up for it. I also needed some artichoke hearts, and the can of organic ones was nine dollars. That might be one thing I am not buying at the natural foods store.

I'm Cooking: Bryce is rarely home for dinner these days, so I am a bit less ambitious when my only audience would rather eat mac and cheese. Last night we had baked chicken breasts, stir fried baby bok choy (not eaten by small children), and Jasmine rice. I also made brownies. This is my all time favorite brownie recipe from the Fannie Farmer Baking Book. It is basic, but always turns out excellent. Yum.


  1. Nine dollars?! That's insane. I buy the big jugs of them at Costco. We use them on everything. And I also have baby bok choy. Need to find a use for it!

  2. I know, I love artichokes too. I need to get that big jar so I don't run out and end up at Rainbow Foods!
