summer '10

They jumped. Just like in the past. (Except with bigger feet. Lead in their legs. And a dog named Trouble standing by to witness the craziness.)
I guess that makes it pretty much official. Summer '10 has begun.
And to celebrate, my sweet friend, Michelle, treated the kids to delicious cupcakes. That made everyone extremely happy.
Making me happy... seeing the rhubarb and strawberries in my CSA share. Pretty sure I'll be making this. Oh, and there were garlic scapes in there, too. Really looking forward to making this again. SO good.
Happy Days.

Oh no, you are making me crave rhubarb again. I've only seen scapes once. In Vermont. I bought a bunch and used them in everything. I recall them being super tasty in a potato salad I made. Enjoy!

I am jealous of the rhubarb. Apparently, it is too warm where we live to get rhubarb. Enjoy it!

I love your traditions and that you capture them on film. Well, maybe not film but you know what I mean. :-)

Garlic scapes already? I made that pesto recipe last summer, and it was so, so good. Time to check out the farmers' market this weekend...

Happy summer 2010! Can't wait to see the adventures.

I just have to comment about Trouble ;) I couldn't tell in your previous pic if Trouble was an Airedale or a Welsh Terrier. We have a very goofy Airedale named Archie who's now 7 and has finally figured out how to act like a dog but still doesn't realize he's an Airedale (ie. he hates water and he's never met a stranger he doesn't love, lol.)

Happy Summer!

Romi said...

*Love* garlic scapes.

It's so much fun to see your kids grow up like that. Too cute. :)

Kristen said...

I will be on the look out for garlic scapes (in my own garden, I grow the stuff and did not know you could eat that part!) Thanks for the tip, and have a wonderful summer!

May the sun always shine in your beautiful garden of life, Leslie! You are a fortunate woman.

Kristyn Knits said...

Happy summer friend family!!

Nantucket Dreams said...

im jealous! i am on a waiting list for a CSA right now...the rhubarb and scapes sound incredible! i love that trouble is looking at them as if to say "why jump when you can just relax?"
