Sweet taste of Summer

 One of our favorite summer activities is to go fruit picking, is there anything more rewarding than going out, picking fresh produce and then bringing it home to turn it into something even more wonderful ?
Monday, Reagan and I ventured out to pick blueberries (So much easier than strawberries) and purchase fresh peaches at one of our favorite farms in order to come home and bake one of Reagan's favorite cakes, Peach and Blueberry Pound cake .
This cake has to be one of our favorites, it's perfect all year round, served alone at tea time or served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream as a tasty desert

                     Peach and Blueberry Pound Cake


 1/2  C Softened butter
1 1/4 C Sugar
3 Eggs
1/4 C Milk
2 1/2 C Cake Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
2 1/4 C chopped peeled peaches
2 C Blueberries

In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar . Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in milk. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt ; add to creamed mixture. Stir in blueberries and peaches. Pour into a greased and floured 10 inch fluted tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 - 70 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 mins, remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners sugar if desired.
                                                                       ENJOY !!!!

No need for NASA ?

Last night we were sat eating a nice family dinner and the topic of circumcision came up. (don't most families have those types of discussions at dinner ?) Ben asked "What exactly is circumcision ?" so I explained it to him, he then asked if the penis looked different, I told him that yes it did, that it always reminded me a little of a rocket ship, I also went on to say that I wouldn't be surprised if in 10 years or so there will be far more uncircumcised boys than ever, to which Reagan pondered and then exclaimed, "So I guess we won't have to go to NASA" O.M.G, where does this child get her sense of humor from ?

Virus's are the worst

And I'm not talking the runny nose, sore throat, tummy ache, throwing up kind I'm talking the one that hit my computer a month ago and hasn't yet been resolved, whence the looooong break in posting. I hope to be able to resume normal postings in the next week or so, until then I'll check in when I can and leave you with a  shop update for those of you who may be interested in new oven mitts, placemat sets perfect for a Summer picnic or a handy dandy clothespin bag.
