First, since I decided to can again……I may be obsessed and am currently a puddle of Zia from the heat. Tonight I did a very berry with pomegranate and a very berry with lavender. I know the name lacks originality but what else could I call it? It has blue/black berries and strawberries and raspberries, very berry should cover it. ANYWAY I decided to go to avery.com and with what they had and my background rubber stamps I am satisfied with my labels at the moment.
Friday night on the way home I stopped by a little Italian specialty shop. I picked up a pizza that is a local phenomenon. I thought we could try something new for dinner……the funny part is …..it tasted just like my grandma’s pizza only she never called it by it’s name. It makes sense though, my uncle tells great stories of the old neighborhood with the outdoor pizza ovens, and my great grandparents lived in that area at that time.
The miracle in all of this is that both kids tried a pepper without any prompting from me. I think very soon my daughter will be converted to a red pepper fan. The secret of this pizza,(I know because of my grandma ) is in the cheese. Locatelli parmesan/romano and it has to be hand grated. I also picked up these little candies that my grandma always had at Christmas, honestly I couldn’t remember if I liked them.
They were ok, I wonder though…should I start buying them for my nephews at the holiday? It’s a thought.
Today I took the kids to a local fruit farm for something different to do. I also made them/well her participate in the ‘mom I’m too old for these photos’ I even jumped in one since my son wouldn’t.Don’t you just love the dorky face she is making.
She still loves all animals and had to pet them all.
I know they are too old for these activities but hey as long as they are not complaining, I’m surely not going to point it out…..-Zia
