Silver lake, July 2014

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve shared my Sunday ramblings. What can I say? Summer is a busy fun time.

T'was a lovely little weekend. #mccall #idaho How we're spending our holiday weekend. Happy 4th everyone! #mccall #idaho #payettelake
Playing in the sand Over the lake firework show. Lovely.

>> We spent the long 4th of July weekend at our cabin in Idaho. It was a quick fun weekend and we can’t wait to go back in August!

>> Are you watching the world cup final today? My husband has been way into it, and I must admit it’s sucked me in too. Go Germany!

First batch of strawberry jam! #eatseasonal

>> I made my first batch of strawberry jam of the season! And we’ve already devoured two jars. Find my favorite recipe here.

>> Speaking of canning, I got sucked into this magazine in the checkout line last week. It’s gorgeous. I want to can all the stuff!

Scrumptious gnocchi tonight for dinner courtesy of @Cappellos Gluten Free Pastas. Yum!

>> The kind folks at Cappello’s sent me some of their gluten-free pasta to sample. Surprisingly tasty! I just loved the gnocchi, seen here served with bacon, mushrooms, peas and crispy sage.

>>Grandparents are the best. We had a blast with my folks last week!
