I've been enjoying my first week of summer so much! Lots of relaxing and reading :-). I just finished The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. It was truly amazing, and I highly recommend it!
Now for the food!
It's English Muffin Bread! Courtesy of a recipe posted by Ally over at Sweet and Savory. Thanks Ally! It's so easy to make and very tasty. It keeps quite well for a few days too.
Now this was fun! I won a giveaway for a Sodastream home soda maker hosted by Julia at Easy Eco To Go. I've had so much fun using it so far, though it would definitely have been too pricey for me to purchase straight up. Still, it is more ecoconscious than buying cans of soda or flavored water since you reuse the glass bottle with this system :-). I do wish that some of their syrups didn't have artificial colors though, but I suppose having them every once in a while is okay...
Banana and natural peanut butter - it doesn't get much better than that! Oh, and grapefruit is amazing too ;-). I haven't had one in over 4 months or so I believe.
