Summer Dinner

Tonight for dinner I decided to make some De-Lish garden food.
I had some produce to use up before it went bad.
(PS: our fridge decided to quit on us today, freezer is still freezing but the fridge is about 60 degrees inside. Marvin has had 2 bowls of spoiled milk with his cereal this week- not a great way to wake up.)

Course 1:

I was able to use 2 tomatoes and basil.

Course 2: Chocolate Brownies

You're probably thinking, what in the world could you grow in the garden that you'd put in those brownies...
Here's the secret: 2 cups of shredded Zucchini! Which is about 3 zucc's.

You can't even taste the zucc's.

Both turned out great! I love gardening!


Colorado Challenge

I’ve had a ton of experiences this summer that were a first. I say I because most of the summer Lindsay ( I ) have been travelling and Marvin has to stay to work. Unfair…maybe! :)

Up first- Trip to Colorado.
June 25-July 3
Cost: Free to ME

Why? It was a church camp and we took kids from the area 8th grade and up. 10 chaperones, 33 kids.


Closest I got to all the kids in 1 photo- about 12 missing

Pike’s Peak- World Famous Donuts

 You had to eat them at the top of the mountain, because if you took them down the elevation would deflate them and they would taste bad...of course we tried this- it's true!

Pike's Peak is a 14er. This means it is above 14,000 feet above sea level. You could really feel the elevation change and we were up there a while. A lot of us got a little dizzy!
Jill - another counselor I met, we got along great.

Each night at camp they had different activities- Line dancing, horseback riding, paintball, mountain biking etc.

Soldier’s Mountain

At camp there was a smaller mountain we could hike to the top. We did this at 4:45 one morning to see the sun rise. None of the campers went – too early! It was beautiful!

 At the top they have a cross.
 On top of the world....
 Then I fell in...

Also on our trip we went white water rafting- mountain climbing- repelling and did a bunch of other life threatening events! It was a blast. Check our facebook to see other photos.
