Spring has sprung?

It’s Spring break here in Oregon.  And amazingly enough there have been some days that actually felt like spring.  Madness!

Our yard is producing some gorgeous stuff

Plus, I have seeds sprouting!

Seeds make me nervous, because you have to wait to see if they’re going to show up after you plant them.  I am not good at waiting.  But I also have some indoor seeds sprouting!  Yay for not killing things.  (the picture is peas)

In addition to spring in the yard, we’ve had spring cookies

I adore Beaverton Bakery’s cookies, because they frost with CHOCOLATE.  no screwing around here.  Chocolate.

There’s been actual food in our house too of course.

We had polenta with sausage and tomatoes

Plus spinach on the side.  The fiance will now eat spinach raw AND cooked.  It makes my life better.  Except when we’re almost out and I have to share.

We had sweet and sour meatballs

The frozen meatballs at costco?  They are one of the best things ever.  Just don’t read the nutrition information.  Trust me, don’t.

Speaking of Costco, the fiance had a Dr appointment on Wednesday, so he worked from home, and guess what we had for lunch

Buck fifty sausage and soda.  Can’t beat it.

And we used more of the polenta for dinner last night

Creamed chicken + polenta = heaven.

Fatty heaven.

Which really, is the best sort of heaven.

Is it Spring where you live yet?

  11. Beer and cookies, right? 🙂

    Spring time is wonderful in Colorado, as one day you can get dumped on and have high winds, the next day you will have an absolutely gorgeous day. Keeps us on our toes!!!

  12. Yay, I love seeing gardens growing!

  13. i agree with you about the seeds – i just planted spinach and tomato and green bean seeds – the hardest part is if you have to transplant them. i got seed soil this time and am hoping it helps

  14. definitely added you to my reader 🙂 i want to make that roasted chicken recipe you posted a few posts back!

  15. Your garden looks like it’s off to a great start! We are still waiting on our seeds to sprout.

    The cookies look like heaven. And the polenta looks delicious!

    Glad to hear that spring has finally sprung in Portland.
