Blueberries July 14 2014

This huge container of blueberries came home from the grocery store with me. They looked so good I couldn’t resist them. They didn’t disappoint, they were really tasty.

First Garden Peas July 14 2014

This week the first peas from the garden ripened! I’ve eaten lots of them already. They’re so sweet and just really delicious. There’s a reason why fresh picked still on the plant 2 minutes ago veggies are so much better than anything at the grocery store.

Vietnamese July 15 2014

Vietnamese happened this week. It was a treat for doing better than I thought I was going to do on a test. I took the test Monday morning and spent the next 48 hours thinking I didn’t do very well on the short answer, but I did better than I was expecting. It’s always a nice surprise when that happens.

Blueberry Poundcake July 15 2014

Some of the blueberries got turned onto blueberry pound cakes. Although the recipe I use is originally for lemon pound cake, I’ve substituted all kinds of berries (in addition to blueberries I’ve also used raspberries, blackberries, and cranberries). You can find the recipe here.

Big Boned by Meg Cabot July 16 2014

I started and finished this book this week. If you haven’t read the Heather Wells series by Meg Cabot get to your library and read them. They’re so good! There’s only two more books left in the series after this one and I’m already missing it. Although Meg Cabot writes a lot of young adult books, these ones are written for adults.

Tell me in the comments: what’s growing in your garden? What’s the last book you read?

    That last book I read was The Fault in our Stars. I had to read it before seeing the movie. Loved it!

      I’ve heard it’s a really good book but really sad.

    Right now I have a lot of tomatoes and peppers ripening in my garden. Every day I get to go out and pick a few. It is fun because it is my first year with a garden. I am really enjoying not having to buy tomatoes!

      I bet the tomatoes and peppers taste a lot better than anything you could get at the grocery store too!
