OR: Why I Haven't Been a Good Blogger
Here's a bit of an explanation for why I've been blogging so sporadically lately: I have had a run of bad luck with the recipes that I've been testing for Buttered Side Up. Take this Homemade Root Beer. I absolutely LOVED the pictures. But it tasted somewhat medicinal. I didn't feel right sharing it with you guys.
Then there's this Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream. It didn't taste bad, but the amount of peanut butter wasn't right. I still want to share this recipe with you guys once I figure it out.
These Gooey Cinnamon Biscuits sounded so so good. I must have tampered with the recipe too much, because they were pretty bland.
Lastly we have this Fresh Tomato Pasta. I thought it would be full of flavor, but it too was fairly insipid. Once I added some pepperoni it was a bit better, but nothing special.
Another reason I haven't been able to keep up with blogging as much as I like is that we have been pretty busy of late. Here are a few highlights from our summer:
Sparklers at our family Reunion.
We took a trip to Duluth, MN. You can read more about it on my personal blog HERE.
We made it to the family cabin a couple of times.
We attended the Lake Itasca Family Music Festival. Well, attended isn't quite the right word. We
worked volunteered until we were dog tired, Reuben in the kitchen and I taking care of Helen and TRYING to take good photos. And Helen decided sleep was optional. I was worn out and very ready for home by the end of the weekend.
Our little girlie is 18 months now! You can read more about it HERE.
So that's my excuse for being a bad blogger.
I'll leave you with two questions:
1) What have you been up to this summer?
2) What would you like to see this fall on Buttered Side Up?
