Last weekend I asked Scott if he would build me a veggie garden, for the past two years I've been using pots and we really have plenty of space for one, we just haven't ever taken the time to build one, I didn't know he was going to get to work so quickly.
Somehow with Spring finally having arrived and a veggie garden planted and with full citrus in the yard I became very inspired to find my happy place in the kitchen once again. It started with tackling the huge amount of meyer lemons we have. Mint lemonade, I may need to make more today because we have gone through almost the entire batch. Good thing I have plenty of lemons!
|Not sure why this is sideways, can't seem to fix it, but you get the idea|
For Christmas Scott got me a book called the Boozy Baker. Pretty self explanatory. I glanced through pretty quickly and saw Double Limoncello Poppyseed Cookies, score! Not only do I have lemons but I also have lots of Limoncello since I make it every year with our bounty of lemons. These suckers are good.
After being in the kitchen all morning I realize I'm pretty hungry. So it's time for a Caprese Sandwich.
I'm going to take a little break to plant the rest of my veggies in the garden before I start dinner which is Paula Dean's Oven Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes and spring mix green salad.
Really in my happy place today.
