I don’t what the weather was like for you where you live over the weekend, but here – it was gorgeous! We had 80 degree temps on Sunday and high 70’s on Saturday and I couldn’t have asked for a nicer weekend! In fact, the weather was so beautiful yesterday that Josh and I got a little excited and went ahead and pulled out all of our patio cushions, hammock, and other summer goodies for the backyard.
While Josh worked on a few “weekend warrior” projects for us (like shutters for the back of our house, *squeal*) I sat at our patio table sipping a San Pellegrino and working through the Sunday paper, clipping coupons and working on next week’s menu and list. The kids ran around and screamed outside (I’m sure much to our neighbors’ delight…) and it just felt good to have some sun on my back and shoulders while I relaxed.
I could get used to every Sunday being so relaxing. So how was your weekend? What did you do? I know a lot of people worked in the yard getting their gardens going. I want to hear about what you’re growing!
I’m still in a state of shock that Mother’s Day is THIS Sunday! Honestly, I haven’t thought too much about it other than food. Josh usually fixes a dinner of my choosing, and the weather can be so unpredictable, so I told him this year that if it’s cold and cloudy that I would love Chicken Picatta or Beouff Bourginon. But if it’s nice like this last weekend, we’ll grill something. I think last year we did steak…I’m hungry just thinking about it!
BUT, before I get too excited about Mother’s Day food, we have Cinco de Mayo to think about. In fact, all week long, we’re eating Mexican food! And, if you haven’t seen our 16 recipe round up for Cinco de Mayo, make sure you check it out. We added our favorite recipes too it, but there are so many more which can be found in the recipe archive, too.
Have a great double holiday week everyone. Make sure to check out past menus for other menu ideas!
