This poor blog is probably going to be quieter (at least from me) over the next several months. Summer is ending and once I get a few cool weather annuals in I think I'll be happy to say goodbye to gardening maintenance for a few months. I had a pretty large landscaping project planned for this fall but I think there is just not enough time to do it justice right now and honestly, I am not up to it. It will have to wait until spring.
I did put in some fall veggies including broccoli, leeks, chard, spinach, bok choi and I think it is finally cool enough to go ahead with some lettuce seed. We've still been getting lots of peppers off the plants and our beans are finally finishing up. The kids are out there daily snapping them off the vines and crunching away on them as they run around and play. Ella is especially looking forward to fresh spinach and broccoli!
We are fully back in the swing of homeschooling again and all our activities are up and running now too. I've got a pretty hectic schedule due to our choice to participate in a myriad of activities for the kids. The killer is swim team practice four nights per week! I haven't even had a chance to sit down with either of those shirt patterns and cut out pieces and get to work. However, I helped my daughter and one of her friend make doll pillows with a (simple) pattern we found in Sewing School, so a little sewing has happened around here even if I wasn't the one doing much of the stitching!
All this is to say that my crockpot has been pressed into service and so far I've made one recipe that is really worth blogging about. I am not one to follow a recipe. I'll find something that looks good and easy to make I'll see if I have what I need on hand. If not, I change the recipe to work with what I've got. I used the Apple and Onion Beef Pot Roast recipe from the Fix It and Forget It cookbook as my inspiration.
