I am still having Alex take charge around the kitchen more in preparation for the fair. She helped put together this banana split pudding (as I call it) the other day. Pretty soon we'll be getting into bigger recipes but for now she's doing alot of easy measurement type things (AKA from a box)
Harvest has started in our parts so everyone's allergies are kicking up. Alex was at my bed at midnight needing something for her cough and nose. Poor kids. There will be no opening up the windows in the morning anymore. Leaving early living in the country at this time is always important due to combines and grain trucks hogging the roads. When outside the humming of combines and farm equipment can be heard for miles. Every time it gets to this time of year, I always reminisce playing in the grain trucks as a kid with my cousin Aimee as our dads and our other uncles combed through acres of wheat.
