Menu: April 15-21

Mr. Moon and I will be celebrating our three-year anniversary this week! His parents will also be celebrating their 36 years wedding anniversary this week (the day before ours, in fact). Three cheers!

Last week was busy busy busy with getting the garage set up as a lounge space for Mr. Moon and me, so we have some space to entertain without bothering his parents. It has been a year in the making, and still has a couple more smaller projects to go before we take the "After" pictures, but it is now in a state of functionality that makes me extremely happy. Soon enough it will even be warm out there! Ha ha.

As of tomorrow, we are past the last frost date in our area, so I will be planting seeds outside on Tuesday. I'd wanted to get them planted indoors prior to now, but Life works in mysterious ways, and we had other priorities. Now our schedule happens to include some days off that are sunny, our seeds came in, and we've gotten to the nursery for potting soil, so plantings are in the works. I just wish we had a bed edger, as that would be much easier than edging the beds by hand.


What's on the menu?

Breakfasts: Same as last week! Hash, eggs benedict, cottage cheese, waffles.

Lunches: Turkey sandwiches, tuna melts, and mediterranean salad.

Moon's-iversary! We Are Taking The Day OFF!!! Swimming in the morning, then No cleaning, No cooking, maybe a walk on the beach and definitely dinner out somewhere. Hmmmm maybe if we get up early enough it would be worth it to drive to the ocean?
