|Thank goodness, it's Monday! I know that seems weird, but I think I've finally kicked the funk out of my chest after two weeks of being sick. No, I decided not to go to the doctor, but there was a virus going around here and every one kept saying they had the same symptoms. So, I toughed it out. Not fun and I'm sure the illustrator wanted to smoother me with one of the many pillows that was under my head. I was literally sleeping sitting up and sleeping is actually a stretch...
We spent a lot of time with family this weekend. It still feels so weird not saying bye like we're leaving for months. We visited the illustrator's uncle and aunt on Sunday and took them some oven roasted chicken with carrots and potatoes. They had tons of people in and out of their house the past few weeks and since everyone has been gone for a few days now after the funeral, we wanted to go say "hi" and bring some dinner. It was such a nice afternoon visit. I'm really loving being close to family right now!
We have kept meals very low key here the past few days...
Potatoes straight from the garden!
Steamed Garden Salad with an Over Easy Egg for me!
Cabbage, zucchini, squash, potatoes, carrots and onions steamed up with a little garlic and onion powder!
Everything is so fresh and there's so much of it! This just makes me more excited to have my own garden!
I'm working on developing a special cookie recipe right now, so snacks have been light and refreshing. Cantaloup with fresh orange zest completely hits the spot! The orange zest really highlights the cantaloup flavor.
Now, I have to get back in the kitchen! The cookies won't make themselves.
Do you have a garden? If so, what are you growing? I want a huge garden some day!
