Cooking: Menu Week Ending April 25th

I am still working in the garden. Also, I bought a fabulous piece of furniture so I need to finish painting and caulking that piece, to show it too you. The bridal shower is fast approaching and I hope to finish all the things I am making for the bride this week.

Spring brings lots of weeds so every free minute will be weeding…. and weeding… and weeding.
