The past few weeks have been trying and a challenge, My body has been warning me to reduce the stress in my life.... only for it to increase without my control. I treated myself to a massage and a visit to the chiropractor and a couple new shirts. I also took an my high school friend Tabitha up on a visit to the Farmers Market in Des Moines.
We were good friends in highschool and had many adventures and have recently reconnected through blogging and our class reunion. Saturday was hot and it seemed like EVERYONE was downtown but it was nice having conversations getting to know each other again, and seeing her be a mother and a great one at that! Tabitha brought her super cute girls L and J to join us on our day and they were a joy to be around.
We both relised after our visit we forgot to take pictures to blog about our afternoon... so I improvised.... AS you can see there we are enjoying the market.... he he
Its like playing wheres waldo ha ha can you find us in this picture? How lucky we were to have a photographer follow us and docment our day!
Thanks Tabitha for a fun day! Cant wait till we get to do it again!
so a few months ago i saw a video of this... its called popin cookin... its a product from Japan its candy that you make from water and powder that when you are finished looks just like sushi... yes its silly... i dont care i thought it was cute.
so when I was ordering a few other things from jbox/jlist i added this to my order... he he
how cute is the box ha ha
ok so on the far right is the "rice" its a white fluffy grape smelling stuf that i made with water and powder...
the yellow and red are a jello consistancy also made from powder and water.
Here are the "rice" formed into squares
ok this is were it gets wierd.... the top left is water and powder that... you drop the bottom left liquid into. and it forms "roe" or little jellie balls.
its the neatest process very wierd
add on top of the candy rice and seaweed seaweed was made from a laffy taffy type stuff.
so time to try these.... GROSS.... eww ewww ewww ha ha sushi is good this was NASTY ha ha smelled like grape tasted like butt.... ha ha fun to make not to eat!
FH's work treated everyone and thier families to a day at Adventureland in Altoona. We asked FH's brother and his family to join us, however they werent able to attend so we borrow thier children and took them out for the day.
