what i’m cooking this weekend

well, this is what i’m *hopefully* making this weekend. my brother-in-law is helping the mister install some gorgeous hardwood floors, so i get to play with my one-year-old niece (the happiest little girl in the world, seriously). not sure how much i will accomplish with her running around being happily adorable (and adorably happy) but hopefully most of it.

honey oat whole wheat bread

homemade venison broth/stock

italian wedding soup

wild rice and mushroom soup


what I did this weekend….

we went dancing with awesome friends and good music.

Hung out with my nephew

Witnessed two people begin a life together

baked some pumpkin muffins. Using homemade pumpkin is much, much tastier than the canned.


Isn’t that such a beautiful color!?!

Also made:
Carrot cake bread

We ended the weekend with a family meal out and a movie.

Best part of the weekend? Seeing my husband in a very dapper jacket.
