Our veggie greens are nonetheless going robust with chard, kale, romaine, and arugula, so I added some spinach into a big pot.

I made corned beef + veggies, garlic knots, madre made grilled cabbage, my dad and stepmom introduced over Nothing Bundt Muffins, we had appetizers, soda bread, extra desserts, and inexperienced beers for days. The cousins all ran round and performed within the playroom and it was the very best ever.

(6 lbs of corned beef! I cooked all the things in two batches within the On the spot Pot and saved it heat within the oven)

A brand new egg chair! I’d been wanting an egg chair for our upstairs balcony for some time and eventually went for it. I didn’t need to spend so much as a result of this space will get a ton of solar, and located one I beloved at Walmart. We very not often store there – I’ve turned down partnerships for years as a result of I didn’t need to promote a spot that we didn’t use regularly – however from what I’ve heard, they’ve actually stepped up their recreation within the grocery division. I’m completely going to discover their grocery supply, and LOVE the egg chair. I’ll share a pic after we get the home put again collectively. We’re within the course of of getting our complete home painted and it’s an enormous ordeal, however will really feel superb when it’s completed… simply in time for summer time pool events.
