**WARNING** this post has, well, NOTHING to do with teaching... Because it's summer, and I sometimes we all just gotta take a break! :)
Anyways...I'm super obsessed... with my breadmaker! I hate cheap grocery store bread. I won't eat it. My roommate buys the "White Wheat" bread and talks about how good it is and how healthy it is.

We have a small garden growing some beautiful heirloom tomatoes, lettuce, melons (yet to see those growing...), squash, peas, an orange tree... and other things that I'm not thinking of right now! But, I would love to be able to keep things growing year-round. I'm learning! :) My favorite things right now are my basil, cilantro, and oregano plants on my kitchen windowsill! Yummm, nothing better than fresh herbs!
I guess I'm a little bit of a foodie. Or a wannabe foodie. I'm a wannabe-lot-of-things... haha!

Until then, I guess I'll stick to getting discounts at the grocery store and loving my costco membership. And cuddling with my
Well excuse me, I think I hear my breadmaker--the cinnamon raisin loaf is done!!! YUMMMM!
Can you smell it from there??
