Good evening, I hope you all had a great day.
This morning D and I took a walk to the bookstore and did some browsing. I told him he could get a snack while we were there. Of course he chose a cookie the size of his head. The kid has self control and only ate half. I bought a new bread baking book – Peter Reinhart’s Whole Grain Breads. I am already in love with it and I have something already started. I really do love to bake bread – probably my favorite thing ever.
The walk was glorious even though it was HOT!
When we got home it was way past lunch time so I whipped up something fast. D had grilled cheese and I had sliced veggies, mozzarella cheese and avocado on my homemade whole wheat bread.
I also had a plain Chobani and an apple but this was much prettier to photograph.
After lunch we went out in the backyard. My child LOVES dirt!!! He seriously would spend all day rolling in it if I let him. You have no idea how hard it is for me to watch him make such a mess. Yes, I am a bit of a clean freak but I just have to let him be a boy.
“Mommy don’t freak out, it is just dirt.”
He was racing his cars in the dirt. That is when the huge dust cloud surrounded him. He looked like Pigpen from Charlie Brown.
Eventually the cars ended up submerged and he lost them. Thankfully Mommy was able to recover them.
Finally he started rolling in the dirt and he was covered from head to toe. That was about all I could take so it was into the shower to clean up Mr. Grubby. I am not joking, I had to soap him up twice in order to get all the black off – he was FILTHY!!!
Then I made him a milkshake.
And he gave himself a brain freeze.
Later I took him to my hairdresser for a haircut and look who was under all that hair.
Does he not look 2 years older? I almost cried. Ok, so yes I am going to have to say this because he is my son – Man is this kid handsome!!!! He is growing up too fast.
Now for the winner of the Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce.
Meredith who said her favorite condiment is horseradish mustard.
Congrats Meredith! E-mail me your address and I will send your bottle of sauce.
Well that is all for today. Time to go wash this face mask off – it is feeling a bit tight. Then I am going to go flip through my new bread baking book – it is full of so much great info. See you tomorrow.
