Have I mentioned how great my tomato plants are doing? They’re growing like weeds…well, not like weeds but like tomato plants! 🙂 My bigger, roma sized tomatoes aren’t quite ripe yet but I’ve gotten lots of cherry tomatoes already. We got over a dozen off this weekend and were able to make a pizza using nothing but our home grown tomatoes!! How’s that for cool! I feel so farmer-ish. In fact, the pizza not only had our home grown tomatoes, but was on my homemade pizza dough, using my homemade pesto that I made with basil from our garden! whoa…Martha Stewart here I come!!
If you’re curious, the pizza recipe I use is from The Pioneer Woman’s first cookbook. It is by far the favorite dinner of both me and Robert. Take the time to make your own crust too – it’s not hard and so good! Check out this post she did on pizza – Pizza Two Ways – we make ours the first way but add fresh basil at the end. So. darn. GOOD! It’s just pesto, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil. We probably have it at least every other week.
You can also get a glimpse of our new deck rail in that last pic. It looks great and I’m so glad we decided to do it. I’ll take some better pics of it next week.
Here’s two quick iphone pics of Maxwell. The first is from the day of his haircut last week and, with this expression, it totally looks like he’s saying “where’d my hair go?!” (which is what I was thinking!)
And this one is from yesterday. His short little do is starting to grow on me I think…but I still wish it would just grow period! 🙂
That’s all for today! See you tomorrow for the holiday special!
ps – am I being a little dramatic about this haircut? Perhaps…
