Summer update…

July 5, 2011

  • This is our second summer choosing not to use our a/c. I’d say we’re well accustomed to the heat now. I actually crave it, I think it’s good for my bones since I’m just now thawing out from the brutal winter we had this year.
  • EXCITING NEWS: Stephen will soon be blogging for Kansas City Food Circle on a weekly basis! Stay tuned for the deets…
  • This past weekend we celebrated our first anniversary as a married couple, Stephen’s birthday, and Independence Day. It was a fun-filled weekend of sparklers, peach juleps, and homemade cheesecake!
  • Stephen fixed our rain barrel! After a couple of good storms we have an ample supply of water for our little garden.
  • We’re proud to announce our home has been flea-free for two years! You can read about our initial debacle here and here. I like to think it’s because we’re taking better care of our kitty by feeding her a raw diet, but I’m sure there are other theories.
  • We attempted the GAPS diet for a week and couldn’t do it. Not because of the restrictions, we’re used to eating simply, instead it was the ludicrous amount of meat it suggests you eat.  It just didn’t feel right for us.  We’re mostly plant eaters who occasionally eat meat if we know the source and that ethical standards were achieved.  We like to follow Michael Pollan’s advice, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Through our experiment we decided we want to try to eat gluten-free as much as possible. Tomorrow I’m attempting chocolate chip cookies with almond flour for Stephen’s actual birthday. We’ll see how it goes! If they’re tasty, I’ll post the recipe.
