We have had a yummy food week!
On Friday, our usual pizza night, we made
a delicious caramelized onion, pear, and gorgonzola pizza.
We served it with baby arugula on top, amazing!
 Sunday was just as yummy with buttermilk waffles and fresh berries,
followed by these chocolate chip and m&m cookies.
I think I've finally found a good recipe for high altitude cookie success!

 I found a Zoku popsicle maker on sale the other day.
It's a fun way to make homemade popsicles,
but you definitely have to make them a head of time.
