Tasty Tidbits

The crocuses are up! Welcome to spring!

Although the sprinkling of snow we got here on Friday indicates otherwise, it's time to start planning & planting for the upcoming garden season. The Bup got compost this week & did some work on building up our raised beds. I'm hoping to plant some onion sets, spring peas, seed potatoes, & leafy greens this weekend. It'll all depend on the weather!

Mom made this pretty table runner. I've since ironed both it & the tablecloth in anticipation of having my parents & grandparents over for dinner on Sunday. We'll follow up dinner with our favorite: 6-handed pinochle! Hopefully the women's team wins. :-)

Here's what we've been eating in the last week:


  • Leftovers
  • Sandwiches
  • Baked sweet potato
  • Roasted seasoned potatoes
  • Salad with avocado & Gena's Almond Butter Dressing - This tastes similar to peanut sauce! Super yummy!
  • Apples, grapefruit, oranges & clementines
