We had a good weekend here. Bryce worked a lot, but we still managed a nice dinner with friends, a trip to the park, putting in the vegetable garden, and we found an awesome little spot for our crab pots. Which means we got to eat a lot of crab. And even put some away in the freezer. We're really hoping to stock up on fish this summer.

For the garden this year, we planted broccoli, kohlrabi, two kinds of lettuce, spinach, carrots, radishes, cucumbers, zucchini, parsnips, Swiss chard, Brussels sprouts, green onions and snap peas. We also started some asparagus, although I think it'll take a couple of years until we get any. After the past two summers of valiant effort, I have pretty much given up on tomatoes and bell peppers. It's sad, but you just can't force nature. At least I sure can't.

I'm Cooking: More fresh crab. Also, I made this Italian Style Guacamole last night. It sounds weird, but it was super tasty on french bread and raw veggies.


  1. Glad you found a good crab spot! That dip you made was so good. I think I dreamt of it. I certainly did NOT get my fair share that night (so you'll have to make it again just for me!). :)

  2. For sure. I think I found a more interesting recipe though. Maybe for next week's play group?
