Thursday Thoughts - Sept 26, 2013

Some random thoughts for your Thursday:

1. In case you were wondering how my cold is going, it's about three in the afternoon and I just remembered it was Thursday. So, uh, about that well.

2. Amelia and I baked yesterday. Which means by naptime, the kitchen looked like this:

I'm not sure there was a single piece of counter space that we didn't use, but we were rewarded with two kinds of fresh bread and this soup: 

It's one of my favorites, friends, and the leftovers are making my lunch the next few days a very happy time. 

3. Baking with a kiddo is exhausting. Amelia tasted everything, including raw flour and some vegetable oil. Those little hands are so quick! It's so fun to watch her excitement over different aspects of cooking, though. When was the last time you watched your standing mixer and realized just how cool it is? 

4. Nearly all the peaches from the 22 pounds I bought earlier this month are gone! I froze the last bit and most of them have already gone into this smooth recipe my brother recommended. It's just plain good. Not too sweet, and plenty of peach flavor.

Peach Smoothie recipe: 4 cups sliced fresh peaches
1 cup sliced frozen strawberries
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup cranberry juice

Hope you all have a great week!

A messy kitchen is one well loved :) Future chef in the making!

That's so darling seeing Amelia leaning over the counter helping you bake. She is going to be just like you! That soup and homemade bread would so be worth the effort!

oh my gosh, that picture of Amelia is so cute :) I love little kids getting excited about things!!
