Happy Monday everyone! It’s been a busy weekend of juggling sports and household duties. I finally got around to getting my daughter’s garden started, which was a spontaneous move but I’m glad it’s out of the way. A few years ago I worked with Home Depot to create a butterfly garden for the girls and I decided to bring our old shrubs over to the new house, but they hadn’t been tended to a few years.
It’s a little sparse because I just trimmed everything down, but I have faith that they’ll be beautiful and bountiful before long! We’re doing a mixture of decorative flowering plants, herbs and vegetables– because who says that gardens need to be limited to just one type of plant?
As soon as everything begins to fill in I’ll be sharing more pictures. I just thought that these would be fun to look back on! I also decided that I should get an early start on a big herb endeavor, so I’m propagating a bunch of Mint and Rosemary. I trimmed these off and I’m letting them soak in honey water, which I hear will help them root.
Okay, enough about me! Onto our featured post of the week. I’ve never heard of Chicken Posole before but this recipe sounds light and delicious and perfect for Spring! Check out Simply Stacie and her Chicken Posole with Wilted Spinach recipe.
