Last Thursday before the start of my 6 shifts in 7 days, I made some blueberry sourdough pancakes in my cast iron skillet with blueberries from my produce delivery.

Work doesn't come without it's own share of good food. Saturday night we had an impromptu waffle night. I brought batter (I substituted butter for oil in the recipe b/c that's what I had on hand) and butter.  Others provided the fruit, Vermont maple syrup, nuts, chocolate chips, and whipped cream. Yum!

I was fortunate enough to get to hike Blue Hole with Hokie and some friends on Sunday.  On the way back we stopped by the dam at the reservoir where I got some pretty pics.  Hokie was so eager to be included he jumped out of the car window.

Last night I helped with dinner for my life group. I was in charge of buns for BBQ and dessert. I chose to bring Blue Bell neapolitan ice cream! It was a hit. Most people had 2 cones and Michael was scarfing the rest of the ice cream once I brought it home last night. Gotta love Blue Bell!

Today I am baking banana bread with some bananas that were over-ripe.  Dinner will be left over tuna casserole made from a recipe my mom handed down. Michael and I have also been able to enjoy some of the local food choices (Christian's pizza on Sunday, Sweet Frog ice cream with missionary friends passing through town on Tues, and Riverside Lunch burgers on Wed night)!  It is nice having Michael here to cook for and eat out with.
