My latest project:
We are almost done! Ugh...we accumulated so much boo-hockey since we've lived here! Lesson learned for the next homestead.
Here's a little tribute to this old town...
We have fig trees in the back yard, and Judah and I can only eat so many. This is my attempt at homemade (whole wheat) fig newtons. I combined a few recipes from this list. These pictures are so unappetizing - does the rainbow napkin help? They remind me of this book I just bought for John Jay. But I promise they tasted delicious.
Oh, and I learned (from Mr. Wiki, of course) that fig newtons were named after the town of Newton, Massachusetts...ergo the post title.
This is my last post for a while. We load up tomorrow for Durham! So stay tuned...
Bye Ruston! It's been swell.
