Sunday Sweet Sunday

Sunday is my favorite day because it is the one day a week my husband doesn’t have to go to work. Usually. This past Sunday we did some grocery shopping and got a new BBQ as the old one was n.a.s.t.y.

They come assembled by rocket scientists. Really. Who else would put the bottle opener on upside down?


I was so stoked to pick up steaks and use this that I left $5 worth of bananas in the U-Scan. I was not happy when I discovered that while making lunches this morning.


So while Dad worked on an alarm to alert us if the greenhouse temperature falls during the night and I cooked dinner these two got muddy. Kids love mud season. Me, not so much.


We had some shrimp, pineapple and shallot kabobs.


With grilled tomatoes topped with garlic and parmesan.


Grilled steaks with asparagus and potatoes also done on the grill. It was a taste bud explosion. (I didn’t take any photos, but tonight it was grilled chicken breast, corn on the cob and asparagus).


Check this out…. Grandpa Hutch picked this up at the platform (recycle area at the dumpsters) and asked Debbi if she thought I could use them. I can’t believe it. They are brand new!! These six pack sheets run $2-$3 each and there are 65 of them!! What great timing as I had just run out and was at a loss on what to plant the rest of my seeds in. Hutch saved the day!!


We did not do as much as we should have being a Spring Sunday and all, but my hubby was wore out from the really long hours this past week so we cut work short and watched a movie. It will all be here for another day.

Boy that food all looks and sounds delicious.

How great to get those 65 trays.

I've got some seeds to plant. Bought a bag of seed potting mix yesterday.

Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

LOVE the upside down bottle opener! Hahaha! Assembled where???? Your food always looks so colourful and hearty. I am the anti-chef so I am continually humbled by the way you provide for your family. And HUGE bonus on the seed trays! I love it when stuff like that happens.
