A very big week for Josie - Monday was her ‘Moving Up’ ceremony marking the end of 5th grade and the beginning of middle school!!!

Not only did she finish elementary school this week, Josie celebrated her 11th birthday. Anne & I managed to create a cake that roughly resembled a pot of succulents for her and her friends.

Had to call in the backups (Anne) to help get everything ready for Josie’s birthday party because Jess, Brad & I were dealing with a bit of a log jam. Does stacking wood count as cross training???

After another crazy Friday pizza night, the oven was still 500F at 4AM. I decided to take my chances and use it to bake my ciabatta. I’m so glad I did. This is probably the best bread I’ve ever baked. Simply unbelievable.

And finally, the week comes to an end. I had some peaches leftover from the weekend. I roasted them with brown sugar using the wood fire. Then I puréed them, added a little bourbon and poured them into popsicle sleeves. Yum!
