Rain, Rain, Go Away...

...Come again another Day...
AJ wants to go to camp to play!

Preschool camp was postponed twice this week, so I have no lunches to display. Nor do I have many food photos, it's been so crazy around here with 4 kids and various birthdays; Maia has been acting colicky and Dada's been quite busy.

We tried to
limit our
farm share
this week
due to last
The berries
were too
but we
much of
the pick-
just to give
me a week
to catch up.

Lettuce, cucumbers, bell peppers, hot peppers, cherry tomatoes, 1 large tomato, scallions, 1 pint blueberries, yellow onions, 5lb mix of carrots/eggplant/purple peppers/summer squashes, corn on the cob.

AJ has been making
letters out of just
about anything lately,
including produce.

And I just have to
sneak in a few pics
of Maia too!


We celebrated Dada's
birthday with his
favourite vanilla
cupcakes (topped with
farm strawberries I
had frozen in the spring).

The boys loved having our favourite dip & chips for lunch.

6 Layer Bean Dip

1 can refried beans +
1/4-1/3 cup water,
mixed until smooth
3/4-1 cup guacamole
(or 2 mashed ripe
3/4-1 cup sour cream
(I like using Tofutti
Better Than Sour Cream,
their non-hydrogenated
1/4-1/2 cup sliced ripe olives
3 diced tomatoes
3-4 sliced scallions

In a 9x9" glass baking dish (or other similar-sized serving dish), layer all ingredients from first to last.
For a spicier version, add a teaspoon of taco seasoning to the sour cream and mix well.
