What a great weekend of weather we have had — it was in the mid 60s! I walked our entire neighborhood each day of the weekend. I couldn’t believe it. It felt like May or June instead of February. My only worry is that a week of this (as is expected) may trick flowers and trees into starting to bloom. That happened a few years ago (although not this early), and later frost killed various blooms. Fingers crossed …
Daughter #3 and I had bonsai club meeting on Saturday. Each person brought a tree to work on. #3 got all motivated to go home and re-pot a bunch of her plants. So it was busy and earthy here in the kitchen. It also got me itching to get out into the garden. Hey, it was 68 degrees! And sunny!
This coming Thursday she is participating in an event at school where kids in foreign language classes prepare and take in dishes from different countries. She is making her 4-H soft pretzels recipe from a few years ago for Germany. They are tasty.
Something different this week: Daughter #2 wants to try making dinner each night. So, that will definitely be a treat for me. Here are the recipes she wants to make:
Monday: Calico Beans and Apple Pie
Tuesday: Amish Country Brunch Casserole and Chocolate Chip Cookies
Wow! It sounds more involved than any week I plan, that’s for sure. I will really enjoy a week away from cooking. I hope your week is great, whether in the kitchen or out. More menu planning ideas at OrgJunkie‘s.
