I can not believe that the weekend is half over already. Today just seemed to fly by. Sheesh! I was thinking about the blog earlier this morning and realize that I owe you guys a few things. A product review, finished bathroom photos, veggie garden photos….I promise to get all that done this week. And I’ll start right now with my garden patch.
I’ll take more pictures in a month or so when everything is a bit bigger.

That sucker kept me F-U-L-L!!
I whipped up a great stir fry for dinner. It had yellow & red bell peppers and tofu tossed in Renee’s sweet onion salad dressing. I also made a package of soba noodles to serve it over. Finally, the top was studded with melty goat cheese;
This was bursting with flavour and came together in no time. After dinner I got DD ready for her final recital night and then we all hit the road to go watch. I didn’t get anymore photos because she had to go backstage right away and cameras aren’t allowed in the theatre, but the whole performance was amazing. Lively music, beautiful costumes….so much fun! By the time we arrived home it was 11pm and we were all beat out.
I woke to a dull, drizzly morning and just lounged in bed until almost 9am. I woulda stayed longer but my tummy was demanding food fast. I had my heart set on French toast so that’s exactly what I made. I used egg whites, USAB, cinnamon and vanilla, then soaked 2 slices of whole grain bread until the liquid was gone.
The whole family went to the local farmers market after breakie to pick up some goodies. I bought beets, vegan cookies, fresh (as in, harvested at midnight) eggs (from one of the teachers at my kids school), LOCAL (!!) strawberries, local asparagus, spring mix lettuce, thickly sliced bacon and my hubby and I went halfsies on steaks. We can home, dropped the goods off and then I went right back out the the grocery store. By the time I got back it was almost 1pm and I was hangry. I made myself a large salad with the market greens, the last ear of corn, some leftover stir fry, blue cheese and sweet onion salad dressing:
The afternoon was spend relaxing some and going to Walmart with DS so he could buy himself a new video game. HA! My hubby grilled up the market steaks for dinner and I sautéed the beets. Unfortunately, I was less than impressed with my meal. I don’t often eat steak, but usually enjoy it when I do. This time, not so much. I found the beets to be a bit bitter, too. *sigh* Dessert more than made up for it, though. I had some coconut sorbet topped with local strawberries. Hell ya!!
Knocked my socks off!!! My parents came by for a visit tonight and then I had the pleasure of cleaning the cat litter. The joy. But I did get outside long enough to pick some fresh flowers for the kitchen table:
I think I’m going to watch a few episodes of Criminal Minds and then turn in early for some extra shut eye. How is your weekend going?
Bye for now!
