Summery daze.... I felt dazed by the end of two in a row.....

Finally...  some nice days and all of a sudden there is just too much to get done in the hours of the two good ones...but... got did (hahahah...got did....I'm reeellly dazed!) ... did get some annuals planted.  How'zat? Got some lovely composted replenshing dirt dug into two separate garden areas.  What fun that has been.  Remember my bag of dirt?  Who knew a bag of dirt could generate so much interest.  Every single neighbour that drove or walked by had to stop and ask about it.  More talking than working if they caught me back there digging (or trying to dig out) a wheelbarrow full of it.... but, finally, I just had to keep on shovelling whilst yakking... daylight was a'wastin'!

Lunches and suppers were pretty simple.  Although, veeerrry tasty.... and tomorrow... I'm making 'burgers.... with store bought buns cuz I've got no time to bake.  Gotta go hit some golf balls tomorrow... along with pick up ant powder, find something to kill Chinch bugs... before they totally kill my lawn...  get some more plants... groceries... oh, man..too much already!  I'll change my mind and do none of the above...except the hitting of balls.... oh, well... there will be more dry days this week!















I've mentioned this dish before.  It can be a salad or a side dish really.  I doubt I've ever made it the same way twice.... it usually depends on what I have in the 'fridge.  Here is the basic recipe ... I love it.  Found it on Bon Apetit...  a few years ago.

You mean you usually make burgers with HomeMade Buns??? That is amazing! I love when gardening becomes a social event. I still need to get some annuals in. They're the most colorful thing here right now in this brief pause before everything summery burst into bloom.

I agree with Maureen! Homemade hamburger buns, wow! You are amazing!

I set out to do a cookery challenge and managed 19 new recipes. I was going to do one a week but thought 19 was enough to be getting on with. This looked lovely however and I must admit I am a tad hungry now!

Our weather has improved a lot - but today is the longest day, so it's downhill from here to the winter - speaking of which, there has just been a bit on the tv news that they were skiing in the north of Scotland today - they have had their best ever season!!

Woo hoo, the sun is finally OUT! We are getting the grass and clover cut at last, AND getting the garden weeded (Thank goodness for teenage daughters who need to earn a few bucks!) That salad looks SO good. Now, about those edible bowls... do you really make your own?? Yumm!

Serena said...

That salad looks scrumptious! Edible bowls sound good to me. Thanks for the recipe, Vee. :)

Elena said...

Gald to see you are having some nice weather there for a change, it's good to get those outside jobs done. It's been really nice here this week but I haven't been inspired to do any digging this time, garden is so overgrown. Enjoy the burgers.
