Growing Our Own Food

We planted a garden!

From left to right: Jalapeno, Cherry tomato and orange bell pepper.

And an herb box! Cilantro, green onions and basil. Sooo can't wait 'till harvest time! Be prepared for fantastic food posts with our home grown food. So glad Rich has a balcony for growing things: my apartment is the only one in my building with no balcony/patio, so my tomato and pepper pots just hang out in the open... And speaking of my apartment, the pepper plant is starting to sprout leaves for its second season (yay!) and I bought a yellow tomato plant to give the tomato pot a second go. Hello summer!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This will be the shortest blog post.

Pumpkin mix (15 oz)
Half a bag of chocolate chips
Spice cake mix



Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.


Kudos to Rich's friend for the ingenious recipe (totally wish I'd come up with it...). As far as we're concerned, these cookies are a breakfast food. And a dessert. And anytime snack. It's no wonder 3 dozen cookies go within 3 days. Also, buy the Ghirardelli chocolate chips. It's worth it.
