Rock Creek Park

June 12, 2013

We had the annual church picnic this weekend.  Rock Creek Park is always a good time, and this is about the only weekend we make it out there each year.  Seriously, it is an oasis in the city and I always forget about it!

A Bite to Eat

January 13, 2013

We’ve been going to the new Union Market as the occasional weekend treat.  Mostly for the grown-ups, of course, as lattes and empanadas and crowds of hip urbanites aren’t really the boys’ scene.  But they tolerate it…especially since they get chocolate milk or a cupcake.

It’s a fun space and I wish I had the guts to brandish the camera more, but aforementioned hordes of hip urbanites make me feel like a sheepish tourist with a wannabe food blog or something.

First Fruits

…or should I say, zucchini?

Our garden in plodding along.  A snap pea here, a fistful of basil there.  The little green tomatoes growing microscopically each day (please turn red!).  But this giant beauty was a real victory.  We had half of it in a cold panzanella salad, and the second half shredded and baked as zucchini tots.

Here’s hoping for more produce in the next few weeks.

That pretty much sums up our life right now!
