Beau, Nick Me and D at the top of Whales Tale before we tumbled down.
Good thing mine didn't make the camera!I was telling my friends the Peterson up in WP that my brother Nick and our friend Beau were coming out to visit they got all excited and started planning all the things the boys could help with. There were dead trees to chop and bonfires they could help set up into flames...I had to remind them and myself that these boy's weren't really coming to see us, but rather to get as much snow boarding in as possible! So that's what we did! We did have the evenings to relax and hang it was nice to catch up and be around 2 boys I just love!

I had fun decorating a little blue egg carton to fill with little baby goodies.
Katie made some delicious from scratch cupcakes.
At the shower we also found out 2 other girls from church are pregnant!

Last week I choose to try the Atulfo mango grown in Mexico. This specific type is also known as the champagne mango for is superior taste. I read up a little on how to choose a good mango and all you basically need to know is that is should be slightly soft and smell "fresh" (whatever that means) before eating. The seed was much smaller in this variety and it was delicious!
So I have definitely eaten artichokes before, but I had never cooked one my self. The website above had a lot of different ideas on how to cook them. I ended up baking mine, I added olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and garlic to it...mmmm it was delicious!

I also spent a day up in Winter Park with Amy P. and her family. Amy and I are working on an art project that I will have to show you when we are done. On my way back home to Denver I saw this pair of moose down by the creek in Fraser. They are the second set of moose I have seen in my life, they are massive creatures!
This week my tastes buds tried the Golden Beet
And the Blood Orange
It turns out that they were both great. The golden beet was little bitter and crunchy raw but when steamed and salt and pepper are added it is sweet and delicious! The blood orange was good a well, mine was a little dry but that may have been just a bad pick on my part.
Drop me a line and tell me about you favorite "off the beaten path" fruit or veggy.
