Happy 2-4 Weekend fellow Canucks! What a lovely weekend it is turning out to be, despite the constant threat of thunderstorms and rain showers.
My youngest son and I actually had the chance to plant a veggie garden this weekend, including this little container garden on my back deck.
In addition to a tomato plant, I have a square box with 3 different types of lettuce, and a long, shallow box with various herbs. The big head of chives is one of only two things from last years attempt at a garden that survived (the other being oregano, which I've moved away from all the other plants in an attempt to keep it form taking over). The chives actually belong to my little boy, who has been known to stop by the garden while playing in the yard to pick one or two as a little munchie.
We did plant another garden bed, but as most of it involves seeds, it is rather boring to look at, so I didn't take pictures.
Now on to the menu plan for the week!
Sunday: Dinner at in-laws. (As much as I like to cook, it is still really nice when someone else cooks for me.)
Monday: bbq steak with bbq baked potatoes, asparagus and mushrooms.
Tuesday: chicken fajita salad (I'm making this recipe up, but will post about it later.)
Wednesday: I'm at work today, going in early and staying late, so I'm leaving options for the hubby for tonight since it is also a school presentation night.
Thursday: Spaghetti with meat sauce and garlic bread.
Friday: Left over night. I'm doing early in/late out work again today.
That's it for the week. I'm submitting this to Menu Plan Monday.
