New Find + "What's for Dinner"

{New Find}

When I collected manzanita branches from our cabin this summer, I wasn't sure if others would think they were as beautiful as I do. Well, apparently you do. A majority of custom orders request manzanita branches.

This week I had another such request, but I had run out of branches! Aaaah!! A sweet friend let me raid her backyard for branches, and then another friend gave me a tip on what's now my secret spot to find some really gorgeous manzanita - Thank you friends! (You know who you are.) ;)

So here is Karen's mobile that shipped out to her in South Carolina today.

Many well wishes to you and your soon-to-be new family, Karen!

{What's for Dinner}

Requests have been made for "a week in the life of Trapp dinners", so here goes the first (and only?) "What's for Dinner" post. I'll spare you all of the details, but feel free to leave a comment with questions and I'll be sure to answer them.

Kale Chips

Sauteed Salmon
Green Salad w/ Nuts tossed with Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar, S&P

My father-in-law got me hooked on this brown rice. FANTASTIC texture. Very nutty. Amazing.

I forgot to take a picture, but you can see how we do our Pizzas here

So... What do you think? Helpful? Entertaining? Boring? Appetizing? Want me to do it again some time? Same meal? You let me know. I'll perform. :)

Have a scrumptious day.
