Hello everyone! Did you have a nice weekend? We had a busy, but fun weekend.
It started with Benjamin getting a much-needed haircut.
After the haircut, Phillip and Benjamin went to this small piece of land near our house. It looks like it's out in the country but there are office buildings right across the street!
Grace has named these horses "Star" and "Eggnog." They are very friendly and love to be petted.
We were expecting company for dinner so the girls and I made some bread. You can find the recipe here. I brushed on some butter as soon as they came out of the oven.
We had Roasted chicken and vegetables for dinner. I made a herb butter mixture for the chickens. I chopped up a few tablespoons of rosemary, thyme and parsley and mixed in about 3 tablespoons of butter. This will give it a nice brown color while it roasts.
I added red potatoes, carrots and onions. I did have to remove some of them so the chicken would brown. I also put about 1 cup of chicken broth in the bottom of the pan.
I cooked it on 400F for what seemed like forever! It did take 2 hours to cook but I think 1 chicken would take less time. I don't have any "after" pictures because we ate it all!
For dessert we had strawberry shortcake.
Last, but not least, here are some beautiful red roses that Phillip surprised me with on Friday.
Thank you for looking at the pictures from our weekend!
I didn't get everything done on my to-do list from last week, but should have them checked off by Tuesday. Plans for this week include putting winter clothes away and sorting through summer ones, more laundry lessons and exercising more than once! :0) What do you have planned for this week?
