here we is

we are just having so much fun in thatcher! we have made some good friends already and that is what it is all about for me! we have actually been in chandler since friday staying with mindy while scott studies for his big tests... i miss my hubby but i am glad he is so close to being DONE! jones is loving seeing his little cousin jace, too.

i have been eating up a storm out of mindy's backyard - i made minestrone using her regular and cherry tomatoes, carrots, green onions, basil, oregano, parsley, red and green peppers, and some added black beans and pasta. i was originally making tomato sauce but it was too good to save!

i have eaten about 40 figs since friday... their tree is making them like crazy. i think it knows i am here!

today i roasted some tomatoes and added basil, oregano, and parsley and served to the babies with egg noodles. i don't think they like fresh tomato sauce nearly as much as i do, but jones likes to try whatever mommy is eating and jace pretty much eats anything! i also made some fried green tomatoes and they were pretty good but i forgot to put salt in the cornmeal! next time... jones loved them anyway - he's my true southern boy!

i have a pot FULL of carrots in the fridge and i am trying to decide what to do with them... i was gonna roast them and make nelly some frozen baby food but now im thinking about carrot cake... what do you think?!

That fig tree produces and produces and produces...even when I forgot to water it all the time, it still chucked out SOOOO many figs...
