weekending

Blueberry PIe Sauerkraut from Taproot Magazine
We are getting our house painted.  It has been a long time coming but once we found a painter and made the color choices, things seemed to move pretty quickly.  The house was washed and the windows taped on Thursday with plans for painting on Friday and Saturday.  And then it started to rain.  So the painting has been put off.  It is supposed to dry up pretty fast after this evening.  But that leaves us with a house that feels a bit like we are inside a cloud or a bubble.  All the windows are covered with plastic - a very odd sensation. 
Trying to make the best of the cooler weather, I headed to the kitchen and turned on the oven.  Granola, roasted veggies, a batch of Blueberry Apple sauerkraut, my first try at cold brew coffee, and a pork roase slowly cooking away in the crock pot.  It was not the weekend I was anticipating but we will eat well this week!

That does sound a bit weird. At least you have put your cool weather to good use.

How did your cold brew coffee turn out? I've been thinking of trying it! Recipe/ process?

I loved when we painted our main level, not the actual chore but the finished results. It made the house fresh and clean!! It's hot here as well and I'm trying to brave it out.
