Another Way to Workout & a Million Peaches for $5

I had a very busy and productive weekend. On Saturday morning, I got up nice and early to acquire some rocks for our backyard rock wall. I think we will have enough rocks to do what we need to do. Another great workout is to carry every rock by hand, up a hill, many, many times. You will work up a sweat in no time, especially when it's 93 outside and in direct sun. 

On Sunday, we went to this farmers market farm. They had over 100 acres and everything was open to the public. They were celebrating their 100 year anniversary. They had bags that you could fill up and high as you wanted and pick your own peaches, and they were only $5. 

I've never picked my own fruit before. I think I got a little possessive after hand picking them. They're my precious.

At the farm, they also had alpacas. This is the baby eating it's lunch. They are so soft. I'm glad they had they're winter coats shaved! It's it cute! It posed just for me!

The view was pretty nice too!Some people may think that everywhere in California has palm trees everywhere. It's mostly a SoCal thing, not too much in the valley. But, what a view!

I made some awesome cupcakes over the weekend, too! I used this recipe for the cake and this recipe for the frosting. It's the perfect cupcake! I'm going to make these for Jason's birthday party in September. 

For dinner last night, I made some awesome salmon with home grown ingredients. I used fresh from the vine tomatoes and freshly picked oregano and farmers market bought garlic. 

I just realized that I haven't been posting my dinners lately, so you're going to see a lot more of those, very soon!

How was your weekend? What kind of cupcakes do you like? How often do you eat fish?

  1. When I was a teenager, my mom created a patterned rock garden surrounding our swimming pool. It seems I spent that entire summer hauling wheel-barrows of stones in the hot sun. I feel for you.

    Otherwise--Al Paca's are AMAZING creatures and that dinner looks delicious. I look forward to reading more!
