Sunday evening delights

Tonight for my after dinner treat I had some of this

With some of this

and the crumble from here sprinkled on top.

It was quite the delicious finish to a sauteed mushroom, onion, garlic, and ham pasta with asparagus.

Num. Num. Yum. Yums!!

I made some very yummy yum yums this evening. I get so tired of makeshift dinners, but I don't always remember in time to have an actual dinner. This evening we had bbq brisket (the hubby smoked the meat yesterday. DELICIOUS), hashbrown casserole, steamed asparagus and corn flake cookies for dessert. Yum. 

We had quite a few mangoes that are as ripe as ripe can be and so my hubby sliced and diced them to make dried fruit out of. He did a great job, got as much of the flesh off the seed as possible. Dried mango to add to the granola, yum. :)

Such a long time...

It has been such a long time since I have blogged. I have thought of many topics to blog about:

How to: Christmas stockings
Arkansas Visit/ Fishing trip
Lenten Practices

But, alas, have not blogged on any of them, as you well know. : )

Latest news, my sister had an art show this evening, but I haven't heard how it went. I am hoping for a good turn out, and a great success.

I planted my garden this evening, or more precisely, I finally finished planting. Last weekend the hardware store had a giant plant sale and had a 4 plant container (the little ones) for $.89/ea. We bought WAY to many plants for our garden. We ended up sharing some of our extras with the neighbors. :) I started the planting last saturday, and finally finished this afternoon. Unfortunately, I need to finish planting flowers in the front flower bed. *sigh* I now have corn, green beans, carrots, broccoli, squash, tomatoes, peppers, watermelon, cantaloupe..... I don't think it is all going to produce, but if it does... we are going to have produce running out of our ears this summer. Wouldn't that be lovely? :) We planted some raspberry and blueberry bushes too, but the rabbits ate all the leaves off... I don't know if they will survive. I should get a haircut and go put it around the bushes. :D

Side note: I am very thankful and grateful to those bloggers in this world who regularly update and post new things to share with us all. I enjoy reading your blogs and getting to see a piece of your life. Thank you!

So long
