I am starting the countdown of days left until I go back to school (as a pre-K teacher). This means I also start frantically trying to get as many things on my "list" done as possible until then. I am hosting our Bunco group at my house this Friday. I decided to go with a German theme for the meal. I will be serving Roggenbrot (Rye Bread), Kartoffelsalat (Warm German Potato Salad), Gurkensalat (cucumber salad), Heidelberg Meatloaf, and Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte (Black Forest Cherry Cake). I baked the cake this evening and will add the cherry filling and whipped cream tomorrow. The big thing on my "Summer Project" list was to clean out and paint our garage. I started on Tuesday. It is slow because of all the "stuff" and cobwebs! UGGGHH! It is also really hot this time of year in South Texas!
I am hoping to make a Gingham apron for the Apron Challenge at "Tie one on". I make aprons fairly often, but I have never sent a photo in to the challenge. Because of the painting project, I haven't been taking any new photos (painting a garage is not exactly exciting!) Instead, I decided to post a few photos from earlier this summer! Please scroll down to see them.
