First Garden Harvest 2020

Image
I hope everyone is healthy and doing alright with our new normal. When the weather permits I have been out side working on the gardens. My kale never died the winter because it was so mild. It recently started growing again. 

I was able to pick a nice bunch this morning. I will be incorporating it into our meals this week. YD loves smoothies and always tosses some kale in. The gardening season has finally begin!

Have you harvested anything from your garden yet this year?

Dirt

At 7 am Saturday morning a truck came and dropped of 8 yards of topsoil. Then Hubby, the kids and I got to work. It was a beautiful day out, sunny and 60 degrees. Perfect for hard labor. We have a wheel barrel and a garden wagon that can dump. 4 shovels in hand and off we went. 
We had several trees taken down a few years ago. Then 2 years ago we had the driveway done. Last year we had the siding on the house done. Time to fix the lawn. We have lots of dips in the front and back yard from all of the work. I am a little clumsy and have fallen several times in them. We were able to level out the front yard and fill in the holes in the back yard. The back yard has a large hill so it will never be level but it is more of a gentle slope now. Some places didn't get dirt because they didn't need it. 

We ordered pizza since I was too tired to cook. After dinner Hubby spread grass seed everywhere. Today it is raining lightly.  It was hard work but we got it done and honestly what else do…

Today I am grateful for CHOCOLATE! I love chocolate in every form. Whoever was the first person to say hey let me roast this bean and cook it, I thank you. I love chocolate candy, chocolate cake, chocolate frosting, brownies, mousse, and ice cream. Can you guess what I am eating right now? 

What are you grateful for today?

Today I am grateful for knowing how to cook. I have come a long way in my 40+ years. Hubby wanted ravioli. However he is allergic to dairy. So we made him some ravioli with his dairy free cheese. We actually made enough for 3 future meals too. It took several hours but we got it done. Best part is we had everything we needed thanks to my well stocked pantry. We also made the sauce.

With everything going on with the Corona virus and being in lock down, I thought we could all use a reminder that we are lucky to have all that we do. So I am going to post something I am grateful for everyday while this goes on. I hope you will all join in with me. There is always bad out in the world. Lets shine a light on the good. Stay healthy everyone.

Today I am grateful for a special friend. We talk almost everyday. The other day we were both talking about how we are out of most fresh produce. Well today she went shopping and got me a whole bunch of produce too. I was so excited. She got us a 5 pound bag of potatoes, apples,and oranges. She got a head of lettuce, baby carrots, cheddar cheese (YD lives on it) and some soy milk for Hubby. I asked what I owe and she said nothing. She said I am always doing stuff for her so it was her turn. I wanted to give her such a big hug. Instead I told her husband too for me.

Today I am grateful for my chest freezer and my crock pot. My crock pot is one of most favorite appliances in the kitchen. It makes getting dinner ready easy. I chop everything up, throw it all in, set the temp and timer and it is ready for dinner. When I worked, it was a life saver. Today I was outside weeding and dinner was cooking away. 

My chest freezer was a 40th birthday present from Hubby. We don't usually spend a lot on our birthdays but I had been wanting one for years. We of course got it on sale. It is not a huge one but it meets our needs. I went through it this week to get an inventory of what I still had. There was …

Happy Easter! I hope you all are having a wonderful day at home. Today I am grateful for God, Jesus Christ and my church. Without them, this situation would be a lot harder to get through. I know that we will because I have faith. Even though Easter this year is so much different then normal years, it is still Easter and that is the important thing. Jesus has Risen.
