Howdy kids! Hopefully, you had a good weekend. As usual, it wasn’t long enough but my weekend was good. Not too busy which was nice.
Did you know that Sam is on the community garden board again? He took last year off (aka not opting to run which surprised/disappointed many people – time was/is precious with a wee one you know) and just simply gardened. Er, tried to. Ha! He still had people coming up to him asking him this or that like he was still on the board (he was VP last time). About a month or so ago, a board member resigned so they were short a member. Sam was “encouraged” to toss his name into the ring for consideration (I’m telling ya: he was missed!) and after the other board members met to vote, he was welcomed back. No surprise, of course. Now, he’s being “encouraged” again to consider running for President when elections happen in a couple of months. He’s a shoe-in if he decides to take that responsibility on, IMO. We’ll have to see what happens.

Sam and Matt didn’t really get to do much at our garden space; it was mainly spent helping others and re-measuring a few plots. It’s amazing how some garden plots seem to encroach on neighboring plots and paths…

To finish out the weekend, I managed to get a couple of things into the dehydrator: cheesy kale chips (those seem to be made quite a lot these days) and Lisa’s (Raw on $10 a Day) onion bread. YS2 was a bit crabby when he saw all those trays going in and he couldn’t have anything just yet. Patience little one. Patience. Like I’m one to talk.
The onion bread is tasty – thanks Lisa! And don’t worry Raw Loulou, I’ll still be making yours too. I just now have two kinds I can make. Both are easy and both are tasty so depending on your mood or ingredients on hand they’re great to have in your recipe box.
Thanks to Kelli for inspiring me to finally make the onion bread. I hope to make the mock tuna recipe soon that she posted recently. Her presentation of it is simply mouth-watering and I have a feeling lil YS2 will love it. If not, I’ll have lunch!
