Cooking: Menu Week Ending April 3rd

I am way behind for blogs this week. With two straight weeks of painting and followed by a week of making wedding favors, my little blog has suffered. This week, we are planting the garden. As the last chance of frost is April 15th, I will take my chances. I also want four to five Knock-Out roses planted. 

We have been to two straight weeks of yard sales and I already have three projects to finish. Painting furniture during the weekend!! So Saturday‘s meal is a salad I can whip up on Friday. 

Thursday is still the wedding working day. This Thursday is all make-up, shower dress shopping and setting up wedding dress fittings. We have made great project and hope to have all the work done to enjoy all of May and the beginning of June. With the favors finished, I am so relieved. 

Lastly, thank you for all the kind birthday wishes either through email, cards or Facebook. I had a fantastic day and was given some beautiful presents. I feel blessed to have such wonderful friends and family.
