Virtual Coffee Date
If we were meeting for coffee today, I would tell you to check out this post about egg proteins and sugar. It's science and awesome. And this article about the new baby rhino at the Lincoln Park zoo. My friend works there and says that baby is oh so cute.
If we were having coffee today, mine would be an iced coffee because even though it's September, it's still a bit too warm and muggy for something warm. I am sooo looking forward to fall weather, but I will miss the summer.
If we were having coffee today, I would tell you how excited/nervous I am for our upcoming backpacking trip. We are taking energy bars, granola and making chicken and dumplings. Our friend Rob has mastered making muffins on a camp stove thanks to this tutorial. ( I did not...more on that later). Thanks to him, we are going to eat WELL on this trip (he also has a gorgonzola pasta and chicken curry planned).
If we were having coffee today, I would tell you how I have been in the kitchen canning pickles and tomatoes this weekend, but my garden is still producing like crazy so I will be in the kitchen canning more this week. I really want to try this peach chutney. It looks crazy delicious.
Have a fun long weekend.
