  • It was a crazy start to the NFL. I am not the biggest Aaron Rodgers fan, but I still feel bad for the guy.
  • Pretzels are good game day food. I used this recipe, but made big pretzels.
  • Half-zip. Our boys like them too.
  • Let teenagers sleep. Caleb’s school starts at 7:45 and I think that is too early.
  • Maxwell started taking guitar lessons and he is really enjoying it so far.

  1. hey y’all- great list! Yummy food! That is so cool Maxwell started guitar lessons. How’s the weather in Utah? Here in Oklahoma it is starting to feel like Fall. In the 70’s this week but warming back up next week in the 80’s. Have a wonderful day!!

    1. The weather is nice here. We are in the 80’s, but there is a chill in the mornings, which I love.

  2. My daughter’s keystone presentation at the end of her 7th grade year last year was a persuasive researched essay on school start times for teens. Her middle school begins at 7:45 and high school starts even earlier. The scientific research on this issue is robust and vetted, and yet, school administration/ unions/ bus schedules/ childcare–it’s an easy sounding issue that is surprisingly difficult to solve.

  3. Those Chocolate Chip Cookies look amazing, Maria! I can’t wait for my cookbook to arrive so I can study that chapter and the rest of the book to make treats for our family, especially for when we are all together during the holidays. Your recipes are always on our list of favorites!

  4. Letting you know I just made the Brown Butter Pear Crisp. I think it’s year 3. Love the recipe. Turns out every time. Great way to use pears from my tree. Thank you.
