Yard work, popcorn kernels, pretzels...oh my!

I have some major catching up to do... So a few things to let you know about..
Allen made Kraft Dinner for lunch yesterday and look what was inside:

This is the second time this has happened to us. I don't know what was going on at Kraft, but yes those are popcorn kernels!

In other news, I made homemade pretzels!

I made two kinds: cinnamon/ brown sugar and sea salt!
I have never used yeast before...or made any bread products before so I was very happy with the way they turned out. The recipe was fantastic, giving step by step instructions with good photos!
I definately recommend giving this recipe a try.
*A note on the recipe: it only makes 6 pretzels, but I think I may make 8 or 9 and stretch the dough a little thinner as the dough really rises when you bake em!

Along with baking, I have been busy with yardwork. Since Allen has been home we have been framing in parts of our yard, making legit flower beds and areas for rock chip.

It looks so much cleaner now! I have reseeded areas of our yard and I am hoping that things start sprouting and growing!

I am pretty excited for the rest of the weekend. Tonight its pizza dinner with Amanda, and tomorrow is moving day. I'm helping my brother move into his new house! :)
Then Sunday is camping day!
 Allen and I are going camping at a nearby lake. Its perfect, I get to camp and still run into town to go to work!
What are your weekend plans?
