Mama Kat Thursday: Something I'm Growing

For this week I chose the prompt  - show us someting you're growing since our garden is starting to come in. We changed things up a bit this year based on our favourites from last year. Carrots were the clear winner for favorite crop so we expanded our planting area. 

This hole area is carrots this year as they are our favorite garden vegetable! The taste is so much better than store bought ones. 

Cherry tomatoes for snacking on

BBQ dinner gone wrong

It's both been a while since I wrote a blog post and linked up with Mama Kat's weekly writing prompts. This week I had a story to share that fits in with two of the prompts - A time I wasted money and also tried something new...

We have had some unseasonably warm temperatures to start us off into Spring this year. 

As the weather warms up you can be sure to find us cooking our dinners outdoors on the BBQ. 

Once summer hits, and the kids are out of school our schedule becomes more lax and we switch up our menu for easy summer foods which often include grilling some meat with some simple fruit and veggie sides. 

On our weekly Costco shop recently we found some great seasoned pork ribs we hadn't tried before. With only 3 of us to eat them, we were able to split the pack into two meals. Pork is not something we eat often due to one of us having difficulty digesting it but it's nice to switch it up from chicken, beef and seafood occasionally.
