Pluots, Fruit & The Blahs

Lately I've been eating alot of fruit, I've been eating alot of EVERYTHING,but thats beside the point.

I've been going to the farmer's market and trying new things.
I recently had a pluot..... have you ever heard of a pluot??? (i hadn't)
It's part plum, part apricot; it was simply delicious.
A kiwi was eaten, skin & all!!
I'm looking foward to trying all kinds of different fruits, even ones with strange sounding names.


*On the topic of fruit, I am having a problem with cantaloupes. I don't know how to choose a good one. Every time i buy one i cut it open and it has no flavor. I end up buying it pre-cut because than i know it will be good,buuuttt that is super expensive. Do you have any cantoloupe buying tips?

Also, what kinds of fruit are your favorites?

I know this is not a very exciting post, but im going through one of my stages. The not so good stages. The one where i feel totally blah & start eating way too much. I'm sure it's obvious because i haven't blogged in about two months.

Sooo, i'm writing about fruit, It's what i came up with.....

please help fina cook!

pretty, pretty, pretty please

I am in desperate need of recipe suggestions.

I'd really like to start cooking dinner more often but i have trouble getting ideas.

I often look through the gazillion recipes on but still come up empty handed.

I would LOVE it if any of you would be sweet enough to let me in on some of YOUR favorite recipes.

There is a shiny new slow cooker sitting in my kitchen that has yet to be used, any recipes for that would be greatly appreciated as well!

eagerly anticipating some kind responses

Do you wish on a fallen eyelash?

I do, every single time.

Sometimes it's a silly wish and sometimes it's something bigger.

I wonder where this little tradition started?

The Mrs.

I am officially a "MRS".

It's been almost two weeks and i don't feel any bit different, i guess i allready felt like we were married. We've been living together for a few years & we knew we were in it for keeps.

If you're married, did you feel different at all after the wedding?

I'm very ready to relax and focus on things other than wedding planning.

Ready for baking and possibly even cooking dinner once in a while.

Ready to settle into our new official family.

Squirrell has a real daddy now!!


My initials are GG, don't make fun! hehe

curiosity never killed the cat

We keep moving forward, opening new doors,
and doing new things, because we're curious
and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
