Week wrap up

>> Sunday, April 5, 2009

My week may or may not have looked like yours. There was a lot of yard tidying up. We are expanding our vegetable garden and also building a stone retaining wall (so much fun). We tidied up the yard and found some bulbs poking through.

Our fruit trees are finally budding

My strawberries are now the home of a plastic giraffe and some golf balls.....hmmmm
My first "crop" of the season was some fresh chives for our potatoes
I also have a recipe to share, and Claudia since you have been sharing so many healthful recipes and tips this year this dessert is especially for you. These brownies which include two cups (yes that is not a typo) of black beans.

Yummy, delicious, gluten-free (if you need/want that) fantastic brownies. Recipe for Amazing Black Bean Brownies here.

How was your week?

My week looked a lot like that, actually! April is gardening month around here (San Diego). It's my favorite month of the year. Gardening is about the only thing I like almost as much as knitting. :)

Awwwww. I feel so *special* thank you so much! {insert beaming smile}

Have you ever seen the series Vicar of Dibley? It's not the greatest series but it is funny at times. Anyway, there is this little old lady who knits ~ and bakes ~ but her baked goods always have vegetables in them and not in a good way - LOL. I must try this recipe I'm too amused.

Sweet pictures - at first I thought they were bird eggs and not golf balls!

Oh - you have spring!! Lovely photos. We have 25 cm (about 10 inches) of snow forecast for the next 24 hours here in Southern Ontario. :(

Black Bean Brownies?? I have to try these!

We've been watching everything go green, too! A bit of gardening, running, job-doing and job-hunting sums up my week.

Spring is not quite here yet - yours looks lovely - I've had that recipe in my queue for a long time - just too timid to try it...
