Here's some shots of a few going on's in my world as of late...
I thought I already did a mention on this dish above...but I guess I didn't. So, here ya go, guys! That is my Lemon battered and pan friend chicken atop a creamy, lemony, buttery, angel hair pasta.
Ryan wanted to do chicken piccata one night for dinner. I do not like chicken piccata. I do however LOVE Lemon Pepper Chicken. So, I fixed my chicken up the way I wanted and Ryan made his own. (He ended up liking my dish more...oops :)
I don't know why, but I will buy a journal at the book store if it's in the clearance basket or sporting a decent price tag. I might not have a use for it at the time...but I always end up finding a purpose for it! Just like the one pictured above. I started carrying it in my purse to keep for note taking, jotting down days I need to remember to take off from work, recipes I come across (so entirely handy to have on you when you are at the doctor's office and flipping through a magazine and end up coming across an awesome recipe but you don't have the guts to rip the page out...lol!), and keeping a record of when herb and flower seeds were planted in the last month.
Basically, I can use any "gardening" type notes to reference to when next year comes around. It has been such a great little tool already.
One of my sisters was on a "crochet wash cloth" making spree. I have always wanted to make a couple but never seem to have the time to do so. I finally forced myself to sit down one morning and what is pictured above happened. :)
(Super easy pattern...but I can't link it at this time. If anyone is interested, leave a comment and I'll link/comment back :)
(Petunias, 10 different kinds of pepper plants, Strawberry plants,
and various other flower/herb plants were picked up last Sunday!)
I got my flats of Petunias, ready and waiting...until the frost warnings dissipate...to be planted in the beds out front. I did go ahead and plant a few pots today. Lady Slippers and white/pink petunias are taking root as we speak. My Moon Flower seedlings are in their own pot now too.
(I start the stubborn Moon seeds folded up in a paper towel, moisten it, and then slip into a sandwich baggy until the seeds crack open.)
Plus the Pineapple Sage and Lemon Balm herbs are planted next to the two foot high Catnip
Perennial I have from last year.
I love Catnip/Lemon/Ginger tea.
Have you ever had Catnip tea?
AMAZING stuff. Instantly calms, soothes, and relaxes the body and spirit.
I started these seeds over a week ago and still nothing has turned up. I planted sunflower seeds the same day and those sprouted up with in three days! I really hope something happens with my herb seeds. I love being able to walk outside and grab fresh leaves to compliment a dish.
The Golden Doodle in my life. Miss Sophie. She's such a pretty girl, isn't she? All 80 pounds of her! hahah. She loves, loves, LOVES her people. And she's saying it's time for bed now...
I had something pretty awesome happen for me today...I will mention it soon in the next post. Take care, everyone! I have to finish my laundry for work tomorrow morning.
