It’s been quiet at Carrots this week. Nutcracker rehearsals are in full swing, I’ve been subbing some ballet classes I usually don’t teach, and season 2 of Sherlock was finally available on Netflix instant. I’m feeling a little behind on everything.
Coming Up in the Liturgical Year: Michaelmas on Saturday! St. Therese of Lisieux’s Day on October 1st and the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi on October 4th. (Great book list of St. Francis related books by Elizabeth Foss found here.)
In the Garden:
Microgreens! Daniel’s been adding them as a garnish whenever he makes his fancy dishes.
Peppers are so pretty (and yes, it’s almost October and we’re still growing them in Florida).
The Quotable Benjamin:
“Does ‘bitter’ taste like an ol’ skunk drinking coffee in skunkland?”
“Benjamin knows what Benjamin gets.”
“How did you get so cute, Benjamin?” “Well, it’s just how Jesus made me!”
“Hey! Look at this book about pirates!” (It was actually a book with George Washington in the cover).
If you haven’t gotten yourself a copy of my friend Stephanie’s eCookbook of Slow Cooker Freezer Meals, now is a great time to do it because in October a new revised edition is coming out and the price will jump from $5.99 to $9.99. So now is your last chance to get a copy at the $5.99 price! You can read my post about how this cookbook has made our evenings so much more relaxed because dinner is ready in the slow cooker and there’s no last minute scramble at the end of the day.
Stephanie also just released a FREE ebook about conception, pregnancy, and post partum: From Maiden to Mother, you might want to check out. I’m even featured in the “advice from other bloggers” section
