Thursday Things


Summer has arrived here in Colorado.  We went straight from winter (snow on May 1st) to summer.  This week has been in the mid 80’s.  Who needs spring, anyway!  This last weekend we spent 3 hours pulling weeds, tilling soil, and planting our garden.  We went a little crazy this year!  We have 2 kinds of green beans, 2 kinds of squash, Brussels Sprouts, 4 tomato plants, asparagus, parsnips, potatoes, sweet corn, strawberries, 3 hot peppers, a bell pepper, 2 kinds of basil, rosemary, thyme, parsley, and cilantro.  You can probably expect lots of recipes with veggies later in the summer :)

I have been having some strange craving this week – check out a few of the things that I can’t get out of my head.

Strawberry Wonton Cups from Taste and Tell – what a great recipe for a quick sweet treat with fresh strawberries.

Chocolate Chip Bars from Roxana’s Home Baking sound like an absolutely sinful treat!  Wonder if she is bringing any to Food Blog Forum this weekend?

Grain-free Raw Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough from Texanerin Baking – yep, good thing I don’t have almond flour in my pantry, or these would be made right now!

Peanut Butter Fudge Swirl Ice Cream from Tracey’s Culinary Adventures – I swear Tracey and I are going to be best friends after this weekend.  We are constantly sharing similar recipes on the same day – and this one seems to be made just for me!

Ok, so I guess my cravings were mostly on the sweet side this week.  Nothing strange about that, now that I think about it!  I have a major sweet tooth!
