Timber Frame Weekend

This weekend is dad's annual timber frame class and tour of barns.  For the very first time, class is going to take place in our barn and the students will timber frame on our property.  How cool is that!
Dad and mom have been cleaning like crazy and yesterday, mom went shopping  and came home with the trunk of her car stuffed to the gills with foodables!

We helped mom make her pizza pasta salad in the afternoon.
We both got to try both red peppers and green peppers.
 And mozzarella~
 You were too slow, mom. We downed the grape tomatoes 5 seconds ago!
 The pizza pasta salad has pepperoni in it and black olives but we didn't get to taste those.  It's moistened with Italian salad dressing. 
 We were checking out the progress in the workshop and we were hoping that an apple would roll out of that bowl and right into our waiting mouths but no such luck.
 Apple turnovers!  Yes, please!
 It's tradition to head to Pepe's Pizza in New Haven the night before timber frame class and this year was no exception.
Pepe's famous clam pizza with tons of garlic~
It's everyone's favorite!
 And this one is shrimp and bacon.    You can't make a wrong choice when you order.   Every pizza is fabulous!
 And right next door to Pepe's is Libby's. They have the best Italian ices and gelato and all kinds of fancy Italian pastry. 
 We sure wish that we could have been invited~
Mom says that we'll be helping her make the lemon squares today. yahooooooo

So until next time............

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly
