It has been a good week here. Weather wise it has been a bit above average temps for a few weeks until Thursday brought a pretty bad storm along with record breaking cold temperatures for this time of year. The storm didn't last long thankfully but the winds and the rumbling thunder were a little nerve wrecking. My rose bush took a beating but thankfully it and everything else seems to be fine now. I love the sunflowers that are continuing to bloom.
I have been enjoying a four day weekend. I went to the library for the first time since Covid and picked up a couple of books. I'm trying to simplify the things I own so only want to buy books that are true treasures. Cleaving from Julie Powell, the author of Julie and Julia is not a great story but I'm half way through now and it is interesting enough I want to see how it ends. It is about her wanting to learn everything she can about butchering. I also picked up Milk Street Tuesday Nights Mediterranean. I have flipped through it and see about 10 recipes I will be trying soon
Everything in the garden is doing well so far. I pulled up the garlic that was planted in August. I didn't grow as much as I usually do but what came up looks pretty good.
Meals this week:
Monday-Steak, corn and potato
Tuesday-Thai chicken and veggies with Udon noodles.
Wednesday- Big Salad
Thursday- Chili (I take every cool front I can get and make a soup or chili)
Friday- Baby back ribs, salad and bread
Saturday- Spicy Italian Chicken Sausage with Pasta and Alfredo Sauce. The Alfredo Sauce I made was so delish!
For some reason, I didn't remember to take many pictures this week.
How was your week? Are you cooking anything special for Memorial Day?
