We had a blast at my cousin’s wedding in Minnesota this weekend. It’s always an awesome time seeing my family. Throughout all the changes, the moves, and distance, they are a constant and an amazing support system to both Neil and I. The weather this weekend however, was the complete opposite. I’ve never been under […]
As we were on our whirlwind trip to MN this past weekend for my cousin’s wedding, Neil was glued to his iPhone keeping track of all the latest Word Cup scores. As many of you know, the U.S. team was painfully eliminated by Ghana, but that wasn’t the game Neil wanted to see most. He […]
Came home to find these little guys hiding in the tomato plants. Can’t wait to can and eat tomatoes till we’re…RED! As you can see, we also have a little spot on our plants. Will we ever catch a break with this weather?
We arrived home late last night after a whirlwind sprint to Minnesota and back for my cousin Nate’s wedding to our new Sarah (we now have 3 Sarah’s in the family). We spent the weekend dodging insane weather, including 2 tornadoes and a host of warnings and hail predictions. I’m so happy to be home, […]

What you’re looking at is our first head of cabbage from the garden. Massive. I don’t think even our creative posing with the can for size comparison really shows its true girth. We made two meals with this head of cabbage, with enough to give each of us second helpings. Sure, we’ve had our ups […]
So we are back from a whirlwind weekend camping trip with Neil’s family and I’ve just finally gotten all my ducks in a row at work and uploaded the pictures. We had such a blast, and although it rained, it was enough to keep the heat and humidity of Missouri summer at bay. We ate […]
Clive is going on his first camping trip this weekend. We’re headed to Truman Lake near Lake of the Ozarks for a weekend with the family. Since we haven’t seen him swim yet, we’re erring on the side of caution and making him wear a life jacket we picked up from our favorite pet haven […]
As our cooking skills progress we’re always looking to attempt the new, more complex and challenging recipes. But often times going back to simple dishes are not only a nice relief from the more finicky ones, but they are very very tasty. For example, The Taco Salad. Yeah its just tortilla chips, lettuce, black beans, […]
