Spring Creek Roller Mills Barn Sale 2014

It's that time of year again! The barn sale always means fall is well on it's way.  The barn sale was held two days this year, Friday from 4pm-8pm and Saturday 9am-2pm. As always, it was a great community event.

To view 2012 barn sale go here, and for 2013 go here.

Here are photos from this year's barn sale.

 Amy and I had a booth this year inside the barn.
We sold buttermilk biscuits with toppings, caramel apples, cutting boards,
wooden spoons, potted plants, air plants with globes, antiques and furniture.











 My nephew Caleb came from IN for the barn sale.

A happy caramel apple customer.

I loved to see the community folks interacting.










Ralph Sampson even came. He is a former NBA player.

Other vendors included...













I'm already looking forward to next year!

These days...

Sorry if you feel I've been slacking on blogging. One day I hope to blog faithfully again- but until then I will run after my 5 month old digging in my plants. Motherhood is amazing. And along with the amazing comes a new level of responsibility. I have been instagramming more since I can take photos with my phone and it's 'instant' meaning (faster, a lot faster, than blogging) in this mommy mind. I have my instagram feed on the side here if you would like to keep up with me that way.

A few photos of the past couple weeks. Caroline is as busy as a bee. She started crawling and pulling up at 5 months. This calls for a lot of ouchies on the hardwood floor since she tries to pull up on anything.




 Under this peaceful photo is a huge mess. I thought, "wow she is just
laying there so cute" little did I know she had pooh running out her diaper
on the floor. She must have felt better after the explosion.

 The newest discovery! 
Pulling up on the crib when she is supposed to be sleeping.

My little model.
Sporting a pair of boots made by my cousin, Kara.
She made them out of a old coat. Adorable!

This little guy waited all day for uncle Josh to come home and fish
with him. When Josh got home Sawyer caught the biggest fish in the pond!

  This little cutie was here over the weekend for the barn sale.

Have a good Tuesday!

Chocolate Zucchini Bars

My sister brought these bars on our camping trip. I thought they were amazing... so amazing I made two recipes of them today.

They are so moist and not too sweet. It's a win-win situation.


 Thank you sister!

Chocolate Zucchini Bars

2 cups zucchini, shredded
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

Mix together zucchini, sugar and oil.
Add remaining ingredients and stir with spoon, then spread
 into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Whipped Ganache Frosting

 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)

Combine in a small saucepan and heat until chocolate is smooth
and melted. Chill in refrigerator. Whip until peaks form
 and spread on cooled bars.

Enjoy!
