I went dragon boating with Grandma J for their bring along a family member outing. I got very wet but it was such a beautiful day it hardly mattered.

 

The coach went easy on us this year but provided a lot of specific feedback on our newbie techniques. We raced the other boat and held our own. It was so close they decided to try the race again. The second time we were SMOKED. I guess we had less stamina!

 

The coach got half the boat to turn around while in the middle of the lake and then we had a "tug of war" which was super fun. Our half of the boat totally won :)

The danger of making cute lunches is that the lunch recipient might find it "too cute to eat".

 

I am now under strict orders to take a photo of lunches before they leave the house so that no one goes hungry...

Grandma B's Recipe for Grape Pie Filling

Grandma says: For best results you have to pick your own grapes in Crosshill on a ladder.

Mary says: Use Ontario Grapes (these are from Auntie Heather's vine!)

Andrea says: If you leave the seeds in it tastes like there are insects in it.

 

3 cups grapes (remove seeds if you like)
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp flour (or cornstarch!)
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp lemon juice (or a dash of cinnamon)

Pour into pie crust, cover with top crust or strips.

Bake 425F for 10 minutes, then 350F for 30 minutes.

The other day I told Elizabeth we were going to have pork chops for supper. "Oh GOODY!" she declared. "I get to use my chopsticks!"

 

Turns out she loooves eating with chopsticks. Actually she loooves eating Japanese food in general, making Auntie Yukiko very happy.

 

So we were very happy to indulge Auntie Janice when she declared that we needed to get back into the habit of eating sushi at home, since we can't order allergy safe sushi here!
