I didn't mean to not post last week. We had some really nice weather,  

we baked banana bread with chocolate chips and walnuts,
 and threw a lot of fits.
It was enough to keep us busy.

the garden fun has begun

I should give a disclaimer about how my thumbs are blessed with death when it comes to gardening here. I don't know as much as I'd like too. But I can't help myself. We are trying a couple things. Broccoli, carrots, lettuce and tomatoes. The kids wouldn't here of a garden with out a pumpkin, so there you have it. Please send some green my way if you think of it. I'd like to harvest just one thing.

Last weeks tomato soup and grilled chicken Caesar salad. I made it from scratch, which might always be easier than loading and unloading kids into the car going to the store. I used this recipe and I think its the first time my homemade tomato soup didn't just taste like spaghetti sauce. You know?

Anyhow, yesterday was the most beautiful day we've experienced this year. And my children have disowned the indoors. Which meant they slept very late this morning, and my house should be clean. (It' not) But I'm always trying. Does that count for something?

1.bbq meatloaf and mashed potatoes
