I was able to get a lot done this morning. Since the ground was nice and damp from the storm, I went out weeded and trimmed the front herb garden. After that I made another recipe from my freezer cookbook...Mozzerella Meatballs. Too yummy. You take mozzerella sticks and cut them up and then roll them in meatballs and make a sauce. Put the cooked meatballs and sauce in ziplock bags and freeze them. David, Liam and I loved them. Since meatballs have meat in them, Christian would not eat them. I would imagine that this is a child-friendly recipe for the carnivores in the family.
I found a fun service from our library. You can download books on your computer to listen to for free. I chose some books for the boys and downloaded them. They stay on the computer for 10 days. There is permission to burn most of the kids stories to cd, then I can transfer it to my iPod. I wish I could download directly to my iPod. Christian's current favorites are Sagwa the Chinese Siamese Cat and Where the Wild Things Are. When I play stories on the iPod, Christian will go find the book if we have it and read it while he listens to the story.

The meatballs sound yummy. I might have to try them. I'm always looking for good recipes.

Cute layout! Love the colors and the blocking.

Yum! Makes me want to make meatballs.

Isn't that a great service of libraries? I'm glad that mine has that feature, too.

That's good to know about the library. One of these days I need to actually get down there and get a card. I've been listening to books online at Project Gutenburg since I can't read books anymore. But PG only has books where the copyright has run out (i.e. very old books). Which isn't necessarily all that bad. But once in awhile I'd like to listen to something a bit newer. :-)

Oh and nice jam recipe. Something I might actually be able to do! Though meatballs, on the other hand, are the domain of my British boy. ;-)
