These teddy bear sunflowers showed up in the garden this year. They’re so fluffy!

There are lots of eggplants in the garden, too. So… eggplant sammiches one night with caramelized onions, smoked gouda and garlic basil vegenaise.

Silas’s sister Kenya celebrated a birthday recently. We had she, her mom, Silas, Vincent, and Nana over one night for pizza and birthday cake. This dark chocolate cake with fresh blueberry swiss meringue actually turned out okay!

A quick dinner for five one night. Creamy polenta, marinara, mozzarella stuffed homemade sourdough rolls, grilled zucchini and grilled Trader Joe’s chicken-less sausage.

I finally cooked one of the 5-pound Sasquashes from out of our garden. Half went to the above dinner and the remaining half got baked into a loaf of zucchini bread and a dozen chocolate zucchini muffins.

And then Vincent, Ashland High School’s water polo goalie, completely submerging an opposing team member to keep him from scoring on Ashland’s goal…

Kenya also kicked some serious ass all weekend and made more goals than I could keep up with.

Pizza and beer. Pizza and beer. YES please.

What happens when you don’t sleep well? Grumpy early morning selfies. (Apparently.)

Two of my favorite things about taquerias: pickled carrots and homemade salsas.

Who is that wrapping up the quarterback for the opposing team? #14 Silas Henry Wright. First games happened today and that little boy did wonderfully despite scorching temperatures and artificial turf radiating even more heat!
