You guys are going to think I’m crazy with all my talk about pumpkin muffins lately. I mentioned it in the newsletter this week, and highlighted it in the What I Made This Week post from last Friday. We ran out of these muffins over the weekend and I didn’t have any all week long. This is not good. I’ve come to rely on them for quick breakfasts, and school snacks. So, I finally relented on Wednesday night and make a batch. Relief, we’re back in business.
My big recipe win this week was making homemade applesauce. And, it’s delicious! I can’t believe how easy it is to make. I need to take a few photos of the finished product, then I’ll upload the how-to and recipe.
And, drumroll … I made a salad with lettuce that we grew in our yard! Oh, this was so amazing. I can’t tell you the pride that you have for little lettuce leaves that you’ve watched grow from a seed. Just look at these lettuce leaves!
But, it wasn’t an easy process.
This is what my little garden looked like this summer. I can hardly stand to look at this picture. We went on kind of an epic summer vacation and were away from home for 6 weeks at the beginning of the summer. This is what 6 weeks of neglect looks like.
After we got this all set, we put soil on top and planted our little lettuce seedlings. They were so cute and so tiny. I wasn’t sure they would work.
