Strawberry-Shortcake Cookies


Straight from Martha Stewart, and omigosh, are they GOOD! I used slightly less strawberries and baked them for the full 25 minutes the recipe recommends. They're awesome fresh from the oven but get a little soggy after 1/2 day. That shouldn't be a problem, however, since you're going to devour them instantly.

In the woods



This weekend, we went to "Jazz in the woods" and "Country in the woods", toted as Kansas City's largest free music festival. The jazz one had a decidedly easy-listening quality to it *snore*, only saved by eating copious amounts of funnel cake, but Eric Church's country rock on the next day was pretty entertaining, actually (if you can ignore the lyrics). It was fun to see the different crowds on the two days... Oh and I saw my favorite TV weather guy, Don Harmon!

Tequila watermelon


I tried out a nice boozy recipe (by Martha Stewart) for tequila-soaked watermelon: Just marinate the wedges in a simple syrup with tequila and Triple Sec, season with lime juice and salt, and serve ice cold. Cheers!

Saw a little turquoise-blue lizard!
