Tasty Tidbits

Our garden is really shooting up due to all the rain we've been having! Here, you can see (starting in the bottom left & going clockwise) baby broccoli plants, sugar snap peas, mustard greens, out-of-control kiwi vine, spinach, mixed greens, potatoes, strawberries & kale.  

I was hoping to get these babies planted out this weekend, but I think they're still a little too small. I have 2 other trays of 6, with tomatillos, jalapenos, eggplant, & purple basil. We moved them outside, but are still covering them at night since it's been getting so cold. My bell pepper seeds never sprouted, so I may have to buy a small plant instead.

We took a long walk one evening to de-stress & celebrate the warm (finally) spring weather. Somehow, we found ourselves at Rainbow Snow...oh darn! :-) I got a cone with chocolate peanut butter & moose tracks. I'd tell you that it was way too much for me to finish, but that'd be a total lie. It was the perfect spring treat!

Apparently Tink has decided that our house is too cold (despite it now being the warmest it's been in 6 months), because we've found her tucked under blankets many times this past week. I was doing yoga when she tucked herself in here, so I had to take a picture. She was so cute, burrowing in head first & then squirming around to poke her head out.

Have a wonderful weekend!

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

  • Leftovers

Dinner with friends

  • Mama Pea's Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai - Always a great dish! I love how many veggies go into this. I added 1.5 cups of chickpeas this time & they turned out to be a good addition.
Celebrating with a campfire!
