Our First Fruits!

Well actually this is our second fruits but the first were not very big and I forgot to take a picture. These are actually quite large and so yummy! This is our first year to plant a garden and if you have read through other post we started with planting in pots well now my husband and I have gotten brave and moved to making a small space for a garden. I will share more about that in another post. I wanted to share with you some of the yummy treats we have had because of our garden.
These are our yummy strawberries, we have been so blessed to have fresh strawberries many days this week. The children have loved when I bring them in they stand at the sink while we wash it off and I hand each one a couple of strawberries. Also we are so blessed to have such yummy fruit that is completely pesticide free.

Okay this isn't really food but a couple of weeks ago my aunt was getting rid of some things that she had that were my grandmas that she had never used and she had this amazing gaget, (and oh how I love gagets). If you don't know what it is it is from pampered chef and it is an apple corer, slicer, peeler, it does it all at the same time and my kids love having apple rings now. I love pampered chef so much altough this is the only thing I own, I have used some of my family members things like there stone pans and pizza sheets and they are awesome!

Okay this is not from our garden but will be soon as we have many jalapenos growing. But I made a batch of Chocolate chip scones and a batch of jalapeno cheddar scones. So delicious and you may say how can you let your children have choclate chips for brakfast, but my take is if we can go to the store and buy doughnuts full of sugar, fats and all sorts of yucky stuff with tons of icing, surely my kids can have homeade chocalate chip scones with semisweet chocolates. We got a fraction of the sugar in these as compared to doughnuts.

Well ladies I hope that everone has something to be thankful for in your life right.
