This and That


  • We are having fun with our outdoor oven. This week, we made pizza, bread, and cookies. I can’t wait to keep experimenting.
  • That’s a lot of hot dogs.
  • Our blackberries are ripe, but the boys pick and eat them all when they are outside playing. I guess we won’t be making any blackberry recipes, ha!
  • Mindless kitchen habits that cost you money.
  • We went on a family hike this week and a few bike rides. We also played tennis. I am glad the boys love being outside, it’s giving us something to do.

  1. hey y’all- great list! We need an outdoor oven- sounds so cool! And that cake looks so yummy!!

  2. Could you give us instructions on how to cook the honey mustard chicken on the Traeger grill? I think it would be soooo good!

    1. You can cook it low and slow or at a higher temperature like a regular grill, depends on what you are going for.

  3. We went to lagoon this past week and ill be honest…best trip ever. No lines no crowds and by the time you got hot waiting in line with a mask you were on the ride and cooling down. We’ve also done slot car racing…the place we went to for my husbands birthday did a private party for us so we were the only ones and everything had been cleaned and sanitized. So much fun!
