Pin It Ugh, on top of a new Blogger, my computer was not working all Sunday! Apparently, they were doing a scheduled maintenance that they forgot to mention about to their customers. It actually started on Sunday at 11 am. So I was sitting here writing my usual Sunday post when I realized that my Internet is no longer working. Sweet!! After a bunch of fruitless attempts to revive it, plug and unplug, calls to the company with all-to-familiar phrase, "No one is available to get your call..." , I gave up and turned off the computer for a day. They turned everything back on at 11 am today, so I'm back :) But I really enjoyed time with my family. We went to Church, then went for a long walk and played outside a lot.
Due to the computer issues, I'll skip The Inspire me Sundays and go straight to my usual Monday post.
We actually had a really great weekend. I spent half of Saturday digging
in a garden, planting, doing some yard work. I now have "an herb
garden" that I'm really excited about:
Our local Lowes had herbs and some veggie plants for $1.50 last week, so I "stocked up" :) Our house is pretty dark, I don't even have a spot to start my own seeds here. Hubby built a tiny windowsill for me a couple of weeks ago, and I keep a plant of basil and a plant of dill there. We actually tried our first homemade pesto this week. It was delicious! So I decided to add another basil plant, and also greek oregano, thyme, parsley and cilantro. I just love to grow my own fresh herbs!
Too bad, the weekend is over...I've been doing laundry all
morning and had a little helper with me (in a dryer. No worries, it's
all turned off:):
And I also cleaned a fridge, and I'm happy to announce that this is my food waste this week:
Yep, lots of nothing!! We do have some broccoli and leftover pesto that need to be used this week, and I'll make another batch of baked egg rolls for the freezer tonight to use up some chestnuts.
So here's our menu for this week. Last time, when I made my 2-week menu, I planned ham for the Easter dinner but we ended up having dinner at my FIL's so I never cooked that ham. Honestly, I only could stick to my 2-week menu about 70%. From now on I'm going to do it week per week like I did it before because it seems to work better for us. And ham will be on our menu this week:
Mon.- ham, mashed potatoes, green beans
Tues.- salmon, brown rice, steamed broccoli
Wed.- ham-broccoli-rice casserole
Thurs.- spaghetti with pesto, salad
Sat.- ham sandwiches/soup
Sun.-pasta, shrimp, frozen veggies
