Raspberry Peach Galette





Ever since summer started, I've been eating so much
fresh fruit. That's definitely one of my favorite things
about summer - all the amazing fruit.
I've been wanting to make something sweet with fruit
for awhile now. I always scroll through MarthaStewart.com
for inspiration. I was searching 'tarts' and came across
this galette recipe. I've never made a galette before. I
was a little apprehensive with making the dough,
I don't have a food processor. Although, I used a blender
 and it came out perfect. It was a lot easier to make
than I had anticipated.
We paired this with some of my favorite Haagen-Dazs
vanilla ice cream. I love to mix the warm and the cold
 together. It was delicious! I will definitely be making
this again.

Crabbing in Newport, Oregon


Last weekend we headed over to Newport, Oregon to meet some friends to go crabbing. This was our first time crabbing.
The weather was good, and we did a pretty good job catching crab. We caught Dungeness and Red Rock crab.
Well, the boys did most of the work, but we were great cheerleaders. 
It was pretty exciting to pull up the crab pod to see if you caught anything good.
We will definitely be going crabbing again soon! 



Enjoying the sunshine.

My first crab catch! We threw it back, because it was so small, but it was pretty cute. 



Diesel had so much fun. He passed out as soon as he got in the car to go home. 


The next night Kris made a flatbread with the crab we caught, bacon, shallots, garlic, tomato, spinach, and little parmesan. It was soooooo good!
Also I'm still recovering from the MAJOR sunburn I got on my face. :(
Wear your sunscreen ladies!!!!
