quarantine cooking: huevos rancheros

we got hungry for huevos rancheros recently.  we had all of the ingredients and made them for dinner on the back screen porch.  i'm not sure why i don't think of making them more often, they're so easy and yummy!

have a great weekend!

breaking free from quarantine for a little ice cream date

after all of that yard work, we though we deserved a little treat.  so, we broke free from quarantine to run out to one of our favorite local ice cream shops for a treat that we shared in the car.  it was a fun little weeknight date!

quarantine yard work

being home is the perfect time to get our yard ready for the summer.  the weather has been so lovely lately, and we have enjoyed spending time outside in our yard.  i love seeing the yard in bloom . . .

^the azaleas are always so bright and cheery when they bloom!^
^happy pink flowers in our front yard flower bed^
^more pretty pink in a hanging basket in our back yard^
^we have both purple and yellow irises in our back yard.  the purple always bloom first.^
^we're also working on growing some sunflowers from seeds.  we honestly didn't think they would do anything because the packets of seeds are so many years old!  they are happily growing on the back screen porch for now.^

love, laurie

memorial day 2020 (quarantine edition)

we were so happy to be able to see our parents yesterday for memorial day!  everyone came up to our house for a picnic on the screen porch.  we had burgers, corn on the cob, tortellini salad, potato salad, deviled eggs, homemade pickles, and watermelon for lunch.  for dessert we had rice pudding and patriotic red, white, and blue vanilla-almond cupcakes.

after lunch, we stretched our legs by taking a little walk.  (we were all sweating by the end of the walk!)  even though it was very hot outside, it was such a nice day!

love, laurie

some free time on sunday morning meant homemade crepes filled with fresh strawberries.  it has been so, so long since we've had crepes or fresh strawberries!  we enjoyed them with a side of veggie sausage.
