Ben found a nest of baby bunnies in our yard today.  How cute!  There are at least 4 or 5 babies in the nest.  And it was so concealed!!

Photos of the Day: #40

We have a beautiful azalea bush blooming in our front yard and I just had to bring some of the beauty indoors.  These lasted about two days until the cats discovered them and attempted to eat / destroy them.

CSA Delivery: #7

April 28, 2010 at 10:03 PM (Food)

This week’s CSA delivery contains a couple of unique items.  Here’s the list:

  • Strawberries
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Herbs
  • Lettuce
  • Radishes — I’ve always hated radishes.  I may be putting these in a smoothie!
  • Carrots
  • Leek — Never had one of these.

Meal: We only have one meal to show you from this past week.  We made mashed sweet potatoes using the many sweet potatoes that we’ve been receiving.  We paired that with some seasoned chicken and a salad made with CSA greens.

Dissertation Defense

April 10, 2010 at 10:35 AM (Career, Food)

In case you’ve noticed that we haven’t posted in a while, it’s because this is a big week in our household.  My dissertation defense is this Tuesday!  Yay!

Assuming my defense goes well, I’ll officially have my Ph.D. on May 7th.  Needless to say, I’ve been very busy.  We’ll resume with our normal posting (including this week’s CSA delivery) when I return home on Wednesday.
