This and That

I have a bunch of not-so-related items today...starting with the Fridgesmart giveaway winner. Megg, you've been emailed...congratulations! And thanks to everyone else who entered. I hope you will check out Gretchen's Tupperware site if you are interested in getting some Fridgesmart stuff of your own.

It was a crazy week around here; both our little ones came down with stomach bugs. Thankfully they were 12 hour bugs, and even more thankfully, Martin and I only suffered from lack of appetite! But something like that always makes me feel behind for a few days. I tried to do some fun things once we started feeling better, including our second batch of Homemade Turkish Delight! E loves the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and so she is particularly enamored with making something from the book.

We used this recipe from Sprinkle Bakes...made in the microwave! The second time around was wayyy better; I adjusted the microwave cook times because I halved the recipe. I'm really impressed with this Turkish Delight - it melts in your mouth!

Trying to take advantage of the great Fall weather, I took the kiddos to the park this morning. My little man knocked his chin climbing and bit into his tongue. And for 11 months old this kid has quite a mouthful of teeth. He's got three nice tooth marks in his tongue now, but thankfully a phone call to the doctor was all that was necessary. 

I'm pretty sure I have some dessert to dump for Food Waste Friday today. Does anyone else waste dessert?It was leftover from a family get together over Labor Day and with all the stomach bug stuff I think it will probably get dumped this afternoon!

I'm hoping our trip to Colchester Farm is uneventful so that I can get a picture of our CSA items up tomorrow morning!


  1. I can't wait to make the Turkish Delights!!!!!!!! Did you use lemon extract? and pistachios....yum....I actually have those!

  2. I used lemon extract this time and vanilla the firs time. No nuts either time though.


What do you think? I love hearing from readers!
