Jack starts preschool in September. For most who know me know I was completely against preschool. But through deep prayer, thought, supplication, pondering, meditating, discussing and all matters of the like, we have decided he needs preschool. We met his teacher and she showed Jack where his backpack will go. Backpack? What will he possibly need a backpack for? His textbooks? I momentarily thought of buying him a new backpack, but we have plenty of little bags around the house that will suffice. But my curiosity was peaked and I went snooping around the internet for cute backpacks. Little Packrats are the CUTEST backpacks around. Click here. My favorite is the giraffe one.
Annie's Eats posted a recipe for brownies and the picture of them might be the sexiest picture of brownies I have ever seen. See for yourself.
Yesterday, I went blackberry picking with my friend Bird. It was heaven. Pick a few, eat a few. Bird's baby girl (online handle is Dotter) was stained in blackberry juice and happy as could be. I have 6 lbs of blackberries in my fridge and my brain is going a million miles an hour trying to figure out what to do with them. Blackberry pound cake came to mind and I think I am going to use this recipe from Never Enough Thyme. Hopefully I will be able to report a success.
Joyful Baker posted a recipe for White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake. I am not a huge fan of cheesecake, but Olive Garden used to have this dessert and I loved it. Yeah, the cheesecake probably came from Sysco, but it was delicious. Click here for Joyful's recipe.
