June 28: Pee Fest _2 The Potty Song

Tinkle, Tinkle Little Star 

Tinkle, tinkle you're the star.
You're a big girl; yes, you are.
Use the potty; yes, you can
Then you know to wash your hands
Tinkle, tinkle you're the star.
You're a big girl; yes, you are.
Tinkle, tinkle you're the star.
You're a big girl; yes, you are.
No more diapers. No more mess.
Use the potty. Yeah! Success!
Tinkle, tinkle you're the star.
You're a big girl; yes, you are.
Tinkle, tinkle you're the star.
You're a big girl; yes, you are.
Use the potty; wash your hands
Wear the big girl training pants
Tinkle, tinkle you're the star.

June 27: Peace and quiet

All is peaceful at home. I just returned from the Farmer's Market, I just can not get enough of it. The "market" is the best thing ever, since we started to attend, we no longer shop at the "big" grocery store. It is just such a pleasure to stroll on the street, talk to friends or just start a conversation with a neighbour. It is a very enjoyable feeling to share. We ( when I say we I refer to me and William), have established a relationship with some of the vendors. That is something you can not do at Jewel.
Today it was raining when Keelan and  woke up. So, William stayed home with Keelan and I went to the market by myself. Yes, it was nice to not have to think of others, but it is not the same without the family. Now, going to the market is the thing to do on Sundays- our family day-. So I rather that we are all together when is time to get groceries.
I purchase white fish from Michigan and the a new root-cabbage like- that I am going to try. I do not know the name, my friends at Radical Roots said that it was good. I will visit their website to find the name of the root I purchase from them. Oh the baked beans were delish...next time I will try it with "soldier beans", I used "pink beans" this time and I believe that the beans absorbed too much liquid so it was not as saucy as I expected the baked beans to be. This week I am trying a new salad mix and beets.

This is Keelan's artsy portrait, in this photo she looks like Ivette (QPD).

June 25 2010: While Keelan is asleep

Garage sale on the alley, beans cooking on the stove and Keelan is asleep. The perfect time to blog. I have not blogged for a while....I wonder why not.

It is a slow day today I am making baked beans, it takes a long time to bake and then I have to mix the molasses, salt pork, etc. I love cooking...oh the Andy Warhol song is on, Keelan is dancing up the storm-she loves music and specially David Bowie songs. Back to cooking, summer, I can say is my favorite part of the year. School is over, days are slow and I can spend more time with my family and also cooking. Speaking of cooking, one of the projects I have started this summer is to document the recipes I create. I want to write a recipe book for Keelan.

Asparagus and Leek soup with Prosciutto ham


















I am still have to work on the presentation but this soup was delicious. This week I will be making baked beans with bacon and salt pork mmm...off cooking now.
