Hello and happy Friday! It’s been quite the week around here with all the storm damage clean up from the severe storms and tornadoes that came through our area on Tuesday evening (last I heard there were three F2 tornadoes that touched down between eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa). We have our place almost back to normal, but still have quite a bit of tree branches to pick up at Kevin’s parent’s house. Little by little the farmers in our area are picking up the pieces and rebuilding.
This week was quite a whirlwind, but I did manage to read some blog posts and just want to share a few with you. Hope you have a great weekend! I’m doing the Warrior Dash with one of my sisters tomorrow and then will continue with clean-up! Should be a nice and tiring weekend!
Rainbow Veggie Skewers by Ali at Gimme Some Oven
I met Ali at last year’s Food BlogHer Conference and when I saw these veggie skewers I thought they would be a fun thing to make with Hudson. He sings a song that tell the order of the colors of a rainbow, so I’m sure we’d be singing that as we put these together. Hoping to make them real soon!
Baby Turkey Day by the Numbers by Katie at On the Banks of Squaw Creek
My friend Katie shows a new shipment of baby turkeys arriving on her family farm in Iowa. It’s so neat how her family can raise so many turkeys, but modern day technology and a LOT of hard work allow them to raise these birds on their third generation turkey farm. (Katie’s also really crafty, so check out some of those posts too!)

Cookie Dough Ice Cream Bars by the Six Sisters’ Stuff
The Six Sisters’ Stuff is a family of six sisters (obviously) that all blog together. Even their parents are in on this blog in some way! They have tons of great recipes, but one of the ones that they posted this week I want to make very soon! I love cookie dough, probably more than the baked cookie, and I really like ice cream, so these cookie dough ice cream bars are right up my alley!
