In case anyone has noticed, I've taken a few days of bloggy-break over here. The reason is twofold: one-fold is that Ivo has been ill and therefore we all have been paring down as much as possible in order to relax together and focus on getting well. And two-fold is that I am down in the dumps about my broken camera and blogging just isn't as much fun without it. Ok, the pity party is over, thanks for coming . . .
Meanwhile, here are two pictures of Ivo and Josh grinding acorn flour in the gristmill. One of Josh's professors asked him to bring in some wild foods to share with the class for a particular day when it related to the lecture topic. So we made some blueberry-acorn bread and some wild rice with beech nuts and maple syrup. He said it was a hit. yay, Josh.
As for Slow-Cookin' Sunday, since I never did reveal what that was all about, I am going to feature a new slow-cooker/crock-pot recipe every Sunday on my blog. Whoop-dee-doo! I have been wanting to get more use out of my crock-pot and this is just the project to encourage me. I am also welcoming any and all crockpot recipes in the comments section. I need to get my recipes from somewhere, so if you have a favorite, send it on over! And you will get a big thank you from my whole hungry family.
