weekend projects

So, I spent a considerable part of this weekend working on a surprise for my sissy, Naph and her husband Anthony. It is the second part of their wedding present, so no pics or hints at this time, but once I finish and send the gift off, I will post more (probably a few weeks from now).

We also made an annoying and unfruitful trip to Charlotte, but my sweet husband suggested doing some blackberry picking after we returned which made the day much better. We spent about an hour picking berries, looking for the ripe ones amidst those still pink. We were able to gather about 2 and a half pints of deliciousness. Now, what to do with it? I am thinking this!

Also, we are lucky enough to have a super nice neighbor who gave us some broccoli and squash fresh picked form his garden. Cooking the squash up now using this recipe. My hubby has hated squash up until now, but is trying to acquire a taste for it, so we will be trying LOTS of recipes until we hit on a good one. Squash is so easy to grow and stores so well, we will definitely be eating a it often.

I apologize for the lack of photos, but we need to get a new camera battery.

Have a great day!

Spaghetti squash! It's amazing. You can cut in half and place half in a shallow pan w 1/2 c water, cover w saran and microwave (do you use those? Not making fun-just not sure how far your guys are choosing to go) Anyhow, 4 min then pull the 'meat' out with a fork. I alway butter and add a bit of salt then top with some homemade spaghetti sauce, sometimes I sub. tofu for the meat. It's divine!
