Ahh, spring is really here! The snow has mostly all mnelted, although there still are a few tiny patches here and there. The mud is drying up, and there was actually dust last night when I herded the heifers into the corral. I didn't mind in the least! The fields have all been flooded, and now the creek is starting to go down just a little.
To do this week: get my seeds started! Yikes! I can't believe it's almost April! I've been so busy working outside that I just haven't had the time or energy to think about the garden! I need to start my brussels sprouts at least, and maybe some broccoli.
My parents came in last week and helped around the house so I could help outside. We had a counting party with my 2-year-old, which I'll tell you about tomorrow.
Yesterday we cut up some beef, so fresh beef is on the menu all week. Here's what we'll be eating:
Monday- Beef Enchiladas, Corn
Tuesday- Hamburgers, Fried Potatoes, Sauerkraut, Fresh Fruit
Wednesday- Shepherd's Pie with asparagus
Thursday- Beef Ribs, Beer Batter Cheese Bread, Peas
Friday- Fish Chowder (from America's Test Kitchen- new recipe)
Saturday- Homemade Pizza, Spinach
