My mother-in-law gives Jamie & I a new cookbook (or three) every year during beach week as our anniversary gift. I hate purchasing cookbooks when I know I can usually get the recipe for free online, but their is something so nice about having a book with pictures to follow out in front of you as you cook. She purchased Weeknight Fresh & Fast (Williams-Sonoma): Simple, Healthy Meals for Every Night of the Week for us this year. LOVE IT! It has a meal for every week of the year and divides the recipes into Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.
I tried a fall dish last night because I am over these 100 degree days. The Moroccan Baked Chicken has a little kick to it but O gobbled it all up!
Jamie’s tomato plant has now outgrown him in height.And we have our first Watermelon!
We have finally started to pick fresh produce out of our garden everyday. It doesn’t get any better than this! I ordered my canning gear a month ago so hopefully it will arrive this coming week. I have too many green beans frozen in my freezer already.
I went to the McDonalds drive thru tonight and guess who was their to greet me? …. Wild chickens! I felt so guilty that I didn’t order my usual chicken nuggets. Are the chickens starting a campaign to eat more beef? Chik Fil A cows better step up their game!
We have our first sprouts!
Jamie has been so excited to start our own vegetable & fruit garden in our backyard. We have over an acre and a very large backyard.
Jamie created 7 very long rows in our backyard.
We went to a local nursery and picked up some different seeds. We like it better than the packets because they will weight out the seeds and give you exactly what you want.
We planted both already started young plants, as well as seeds.
We ended up planted over 16 different varieties of fruit and vegetables.
We fertilized around the plants without letting it touch the plant.
Should I get the burger or a salad?
