It’s finally cool enough for us to enjoy being outside, and we make sure to get out there as often as possible. We love looking for bugs in the garden, playing with the sprinkler, picking up rocks, and we’re just starting to figure out chalk. My truck drawings get oohs and aahs every time.
We grilled pizza! Something we wanted to try all summer. Turns out, its not difficult at all, and makes a super tasty pizza! We made pizza dough in the bread machine, then made little pizzas with leftover chicken, bbq sauce, green peppers, onions, and zucchini.
We still have some more dough in the fridge for pizzas later this week too!
We made strawberry ice cream to celebrate the first day of summer. And the first day of summer rewarded us by raining again. So we enjoyed our ice cream cones inside on the couch watching a movie. At least it tasted like summertime.
Have you ever tried to plant a sprouted sweet potato? I know its hypothetically possible, so when this one started to grow its own little leaves, we decided we might as well try sticking it out in the garden. We are trying this method, since all our available garden bed space is taken. So we’ll see how this experiment goes!
