Sunday Funday



Hope everyone's weekend is going well.  I feel like here in the Midwest we are in the dog days of summer.  All the kids have gone back to school but it is hot and HUMID!  Like a fool, I went for a run the other day at 3p.m.  I thought I was going to melt into the ground.  Needless to say, short run that day.

Is everyone looking forward to their three day weekend?  We had been hoping to do some car camping next weekend, but the campground we wanted to visit is all booked up.  Boo.  Should have looked into it sooner.

We are starting to get some red tomatoes.  I love our home grown garden tomatoes.  This year, thought, our tomato plants look like total garbage.  They are half dead and aren't producing much.  Anyone else having the same problem or was I just a terrible gardener this year?

I am hoping to harvest some basil from my plants this week and make some pesto.  I have been itching for it but haven't taken the time to get it done.

Here are some interesting things I read this week:

An older article, but I am hoping to make this salted butter caramel ice cream for my friend Denise this week.

This roasted strawberry cake is what my dreams are made of.

Brownie batter Oreos-does it get any better?

These Monkey Cupcakes are some of the cutest things I have ever seen!  Plus there is peanut butter!

To see other interesting finds, you can find me here on Pinterest.

  1. Sounds like you are in the depths of Summer. I bet it gets cold there too. my tomato plants were very scrawny and produced very few tomatoes so don't feel bad. Hope you get some relief from the heat soon ( oh and enjoy that long weekend)

    1. Thanks Tania. Glad to hear I'm not the only one with sad looking tomato plants this year.
