We were blessed with another gorgeous weekend & we took full advantage! We did some yard work on Saturday & grilled up some burgers before I headed out for a movie date with my sister. Sunday was especially beautiful. We slept in until 7 (yes, that is sleeping in for us) and had a nice morning of conversation, relaxing and brunch. Once we cleaned up the kitchen, we headed outside to get started on our garden tasks. We built a raised bed & started some seeds. (More on that later this week) We had to take a break to run to Home Depot for more dirt & to Wegmans for a few essentials. Once home, Tiff filled the garden bed with dirt & I prepared food for our afternoon company.
We had some friends over for a late afternoon cookout. BBQ smothered organic chicken thighs & drumsticks and zucchini & red onion packets were thrown on the grill and served along side homemade potato salad. It was kind of a last minute decision, but things came together well. It was so nice to enjoy the backyard with friends. I even got a bit of a sunburn-which I know is no good- but it makes me so happy to have nicer weather again!
Anyways, the meal plan got a little jumbled last week but we did stick to making meals at home.
