Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

I hope you had a good weekend with an opportunity to spend quality time with your family/friends and did something fun and enjoyable.  Yesterday, I took my car in for an oil change and Malik was my chauffeur so I took full advantage by having him drive me all around town running errands – it was good being Mommy!  I had him drive me to Dunkin Donuts, Dutch Country Farmers Market, Family DollarPNC Bank and then finally to Lowe’s it was fun for me, not so much for him.

We gave him Tayair’s old car, remember the 2002 Hyundai Elantra, well you would have thought it was a new Mercedes because when he realized the plants had to ride in the back seat he wasn’t happy!  I  purchased two hanging baskets, a Color Combo Patio plant, Sweet Basil, Heirloom Tomatoes, Curled Parsley and Cilantro and they rode shotgun in the back seat fully protected by a yard of plastic – it was hilarious!

Curled Parsley – boil and drink like tea it’s great for the digestive system

Cilantro is a wonderful fragrant herb

Basil also keeps the bugs away from your garden

Today I cleaned in and around the pool and cleared out my little garden which was overrun with Mint from last year.

Sunday dinner wasn’t an easy, breezy Crockpot meal but it was an easy fix.

Dole Arugula Salad Greens

Turkey ham was sliced at the deli, thickness #8; sweet potatoes, pre-packaged salad greens with tomato, and Peach Cobbler for dessert.

Turkey Ham slices topped with Dole Pineapple Slices

Peach Cobbler with Margaret Holmes Peaches

Sylvia's Peach Cobbler

I didn’t make fresh collards or kale and decided against the salad, instead opened a can of Glory Seasoned Turnip Greens

Heeeeeelllllllloooooooo Summer!!!!!
Tonight’s easy breezy meal is Kraft Pasta Salad with tuna. This Is a good summer meal that is quick to prepare giving you more time after dinner to swim, walk or just relax. I used coupons when they were on sale at Food Lion paying less than $1.00 a box. I like adding fresh fruit which is a good compliment to the pasta.

The colors of summer –
Using a recipe from the @usaweekend magazine I made a Mediterranean Chickpea Salad. I didn’t have mozzarella so I used sharp cheddar and instead of cherry tomatoes I cut up a fresh tomato. The parsley was fresh from my garden.
