Yesterday, Anthony picked our first pepper…and this afternoon, he brought these in from the garden….
I was so excited…our first cucumber and first tomato…now, this tomato was pretty small but we have some large green tomatoes outside, so I can’t wait until they get ripe! But, with my ripe imagination…this convinced me that Anthony and I need to live on a farm….that may be a little imaginative, considering these are the first vegetables we’ve ever grown (and the fact that I’m not a fan of dirt or bugs)….but I’ve gotten really excited about our veggies!
Today was a busy day at work and when we got home, Anthony and I did a little rushing around. He cleaned the kitchen and vacuumed, and I folded and put away some laundry and then we quickly worked on dinner. I actually put together a written plan this week for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday….I don’t usually do that, but I felt like more structured planning would help make my afternoons a little less stressful when I’m rushing home and trying to figure out, “What’s for dinner?”…..and the plan has worked well so far. On tonight’s plan….
Tonight is our weekly newlywed group, so that meant we needed something relatively quick for dinner. Usually we throw these on the grill, but tonight, I cooked them on the stove, along with some onions and peppers and served them in leftover whole-wheat tortillas with sweet potato fries and a simple home-grown cucumber and tomato salad.
This was such a great meal…and it was really quick to prepare. After dinner, we rushed out the door to Tom and Anita’s for a great discussion on Communication in Marriage….wow, what an important topic! I feel like Anthony and I do really well in this area most of the time. Now, if I’m really tired, unfortunately, that is when I tend to speak too quickly or harshly. Anthony is so great though….he never speaks to me unkindly – in fact, sometimes I tell him that something must be wrong because we almost never fight or argue….I think I’m just really lucky to have a calm, thoughtful husband who is slow to anger.
And, of course, Tom and Anita always have delicious coffee and delicious snacks…Tom made me a yummy cappuccino from their awesome coffee machine….
And Anita served us a beautiful glass of chocolate-chocolate chip ice cream with fresh berries…delish!
Thanks for a nice evening and great discussion, Tom and Anita!
Wow- is it really almost 10:30 already? Where do the hours go? I hope you’ve had a great day!
