Outside my window…
Buds are on the trees and spring is almost here!!!
I am thinking… Of flowers and grass and hanging laundry out to dry again.
I am thankful for… Warm weather and blue skies and birds!
From the learning rooms…
From the kitchen… The Black Bean Sweet Potato Burrito recipe was a hit!
This was a great way for me to get more vegetables into the kids meals, and we did like the combination of black beans and sweet potatoes. I think that with some sour cream or yogurt (I wasn’t able to add it this time, because we had vanilla yogurt on hand, not plain) it would be even better, and we’re definitely going to try it again! Thanks, everyone, for your tips and suggestions!
I am creating… Lots and lots of menus. We have a few busy weeks ahead and I’m going to be doing a lot of cooking, which is good because I need all the practice I can get!
I am going… to be spending a lot of time outside this week. :)
I am reading… I just finished The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. Some highlights will be posted on Thursday.
I am looking forward to… buying some more chickens. Our hen-to-rooster ratio isn’t good right now (four hens to two roosters – we recently lost another hen) and we really need some more! I’m hoping to buy some “fancy” chicken breeds this year, along with our usual Buff Orpingtons. Here are a few that I’m looking forward to getting this year:
Aren’t they cute?!
I am hearing… silence (It’s nap time.)
Around the house… Open windows, fresh air!
One of my favorite things… Springtime (can you tell?)
A few plans for the rest of the week… Our friends Brian, Tracy, and Alan are coming over this weekend, along with two more of our closest friends. I am so excited about having everyone over together, and I’m looking forward to coming up with another Wheat-free, Yeast free, Sugar-free, Semi-Vegetarian Menu
Here is picture thought I am sharing…
