Jason turned 49 and summer knitting and concerts

Jason turned the big 4 9. Wow! Every year is “the big…” now.

We went out for lunch and had dessert and drinks at home. Woohoo!

(Xander did not go out for the lunch, so is missing from the photo)

I have been hit with the knitting bug all summer. I finished one sweater, started a second, and have a goal to use up a stash of cotton yarn on market bags.

We’ve been to a few concerts over the summer. A very rained out Jim James concert at the zoo with Lotus and Xander. It was too much rain and we had to leave early.

Then Xander, Jason and I attended a nice and dry Dido concert. It was so good! And we were introduced to Ria Mae, the opener, who is now a new fav.

And lastly, Lotus, Jason and I attended a Takénobu concert. Cello music addiction all summer!

Long time no post

What’s up with us? We had a lazy summer and my garden sucked.

We jumped on the “whole food, plant based” diet trend, which is basically vegan but without oreos. I signed up for the meal planning service at Cleanfooddirtygirl.com for some variety and we end up eating things like this BBQ tofu hoagie thing…

We have been making a lot of bread! I’ve been making regular yeast bread forever but recently got into sourdough. Jason is managing the starter and we have both had a successful bake. So good!

First loaf, kinda flat but phenomenal taste!

This multigrain seeded bread is going to be on the regular. It tastes good and lasted the longest without mold.

Jason’s first try poofed up right away!

Oh and sourdough proofs in these special proofing baskets to hold the shape. I was so proud of my bread,,I had Jason take a photo of me with it. Haha!
