(▼ ▼ "Middle Sprout" and Mommy,
Wading in Mowich Lake at Mt Rainier)
Yikes! Been gone so long my Blogger account didn't even recognise me, I won't be offended if you don't either! I feel like apologizing for the lack of recipes, but I just haven't been cooking much lately.
( ▼ ▼ New Mexico's famous Green Chiles!)
To be fair, (or as an excuse) I was busy (even though I dislike the word as an excuse) but probably no more busy than any of my fellow Bloggers. You put me to shame daily!
(▼ ▼ At Grandma's: My girls and cousin Jonathon)
I've had a gloriously full summer: company, family reunions, trips to California and New Mexico, a bunch of great Vegetarian/Vegan BBQ's and potlucks, camped, hiked, played tour-guide-entertainer to teen-age cousins... and then of course we had those record-breaking temps making it impossible to even be in the house, let alone near the kitchen;
(▼ ▼ And Another one of My Silly Kids...)
Yes, I've been busy, but mostly, I've just been lazy (and a little broke - HA!). It's all good.
(▼ ▼ More cousins - with matching hair-dos...)
I'm embarrassed to admit it, but my girls and I mostly settled for cold cereal, sandwiches, grilled garden produce and smoothies.
(▼ ▼ Mmmm, grilled veggies! ABQVeg Group BBQ!)
And while that's not really anything to be embarrassed about, and I COULD do a run-down of the twenty or so sandwich combinations we came up with, I think we've all sort of "been there, done that."
(▼ ▼ Hiking in the SNOW!! August at Mt. Rainier)
OK, seriously: Whining aside, so I HAVE managed to cook on occasion, even a few interesting and unusual things - so I thought I'd post a few pictures of my wonderful summer with my girls - and attempt a bit of foodie catch-up over the next week or two.
