It's Tuesday- CSA Day :)

We got our produce box today. We got some gala apples, an eggplant, lettuce, spinach, basil, garlic, a cooking onion - I read that the only difference between a sweet onion and a cooking onion is the sulfur content, the sulfur content makes the onion "hotter" and more of the properties that make your eyes sting. Interesting! Anyway, we also got raspberries and some heirloom tomatoes.  Yum, yum! (anyone have any great eggplant recipes?!)
We apparently had a theme this past week.  We tried out lots of ride em toys, but we didn't let on that they actually move. hahaha
(Mom, I'm fixing it, so it works!)
She really liked the dog- she kept patting its head.

We have a problem with walking on the countertops. :)

This has a fun story- There's a bag of sand that's just been sitting by our deck all spring/summer along with that shovel.  I've just been too lazy to move it, and I don't know where to put them.  Anyway, I hadn't been doing a great job of weeding around outside expect in my pitiful little garden.  So one day about 2 months ago, this little flower shoes up out of nowhere- I had originally thought it to be a weed, but did nothing about it.  There aren't ANY other pansies ANYWHERE near our house.  So I've just watched it all summer.  Sometimes I water it, sometimes I don't.  I've come to love looking at it and thinking it has survived against all odds.  Who knows where it came from, but it sure brings a smile to my face every time I go out to water my tomatoes.

Tuesday is our CSA day too. I have lettuce coming out of my ears and overflowing my refrigerator.

Love the Pansie. Love the food. Look into making pizza with the eggplant. or maybe just put it by the tv, you know, to look at because they come from outer space

I still do that with my kids. I let them "ride" the toys for a bit without ever letting on that it might actually move if we put money in it. And with Eleanor, when she wants to "ride," I often make a deal with her that she can ride until I count to 10, and then we have to leave. It actually works every time. She must realize that's better than nothing.
