I always said I wouldn't let this space become my journal, but every once in a while I get off the couch and it's kind of fun. So here's what I did this weekend:
Had potluck dinner with some friends on Friday night. I made fried rice.
Went to the State Fair with Anthemsled
on Saturday, ate some meat on a stick, and saw some farm animals. Discussed the viability of backyard chickens, and goats.
This morning I gathered tasty local goods at the Farmer's Market, then went to the Tomato Festival with our neighbors. We sampled lots of varieties; these were my favorites:
Nearby was a Children's Garden; here was one of the homemade signs in a plot:
Came home and put my developing sewing skills to work making a bag out of a t-shirt. It came out OK:
Then I tried to re-create a pizza I'd had at someone's home, using strange German flatbread, carmelized onions, pesto, black olives, and mozzarella. Just finished eating it; not bad.
Now I'm back on the couch, blogging between online episodes of "30 Rock." All in all, a good weekend.
