I made a lot of tomato salads over the weekend. After my swim on Sunday, I made a tomato/basil/mozzarella salad a long with baked salmon for lunch. Then for dinner we grilled up steaks, corn on the cob and I made another salad.
I shredded three zucchinis and froze about 3.5 cups of it. It will be great for this winter when I want to make things like zucchini bread or zucchini cakes. I have two bags in the freezer now. I will probably add a few more ziplocks by the end of summer. I mean, you can only eat so much zucchini!!
We also had a Groupon about to expire . We went to North Portland to the garden store to get some supplies. First I got over 2 pounds of Sluggo. I think I have enough to get me through for a few months.
Michael got the cheapo alfalfa fertilizer for our grass. It was like 50 cents a pound and he got 10 pounds. Hopefully this will restore our dying grass. I picked up a packet of lettuce seeds to see if I can start growing lettuce again for the fall. The lady at the garden store suggested I stagger planting the seeds by a few weeks. So as soon as the 90 degree weather calms down (I give it a week) I’ll plant the first batch of seeds mixed with the bat guano fertilizer. Yum, tasty, huh?
Add to the long list of weekend duties: car shopping for Michael and getting together with some friends to plan our weekend camping trip coming up. It will be nice to get away and not have to do chores/errands for a change. Now on to the fun stuff:
