We were really hoping to find just one option that would work. We actually found two options that we would be really happy with. So that made the trip really exciting.
This picture is at lunch in this random development that doesn't really seem to fit in with the rest of the area at all...
In sixteen short days we will be packed up, picked up and driving to a new home in the mountains of North Carolina. Um... yeah.
This is happening really quickly. I have known that moving might be a possibility for quite some time, but the actuality of it is a little more than I might have thought.
We are jetting off (not literally "jetting", more like driving several hours) this weekend to *hopefully* find a wonderful home to live in for the next few months/year. Wish us luck. We might be getting ourselves into a bit more than we could ever have imagined.
At least the landscape is lovely....
I was slightly disappointed by the lack of leftovers, but that might actually be a good thing. I was really impressed by these two recipes and will probably be trying out one or two more in the weeks to come.

my mental recipe box is lacking. the boys and i made a little trip to the library. the picture is of just a few of the books that looked helpful. i will be sure to make notes on which i found truly helpful, and which were simply a lot of nonsense with a pretty cover.
with West on the verge of eating solids, and Harry being the picky boy that he is, i am making it my main focus to find hearty, healthy, colorful meals to entice my three guys into eating all the wonderful goodness that i will be slaving over. fall and winter hold a lot of days at home, and i hope to use that to my advantage. baking and cooking have never quite been my cup o' tea.... but it is never too late to give it a go, right?
so, here is to: hot soup, fresh baked breads, homemade desserts, lots of fresh veggies and maybe a roast or two.
