Today has been a strange day. It felt as if I’d done nothing at all, really, but when I stop to look back on the day, I realize that I’d actually done a fair bit more than I’d thought.

First thing this morning, I made the chocolate chip cookies I wanted to bake yesterday but didn’t get around to. No pictures. Sorry. Didn’t think about the camera. Trust me, they’re good! I used my new cookie sheets, which I absolutely love!

I took a bag of frozen, shredded zucchini out of the freezer and made a batch of zucchini soup. I’ve posted the recipe before. If you’re interested, you can find it here. I can heartily recommend this soup; it has never failed to please and can be eaten hot or cold.

Then, this afternoon, I decided to try some gluten free baking, thanks to my daughter. I made whole grain gluten free muffins and, once again, they were really good! I blogged about them here.

And, we gardened.

And John planted stuff in the garden, too.

John also planted the Walla Walla onions we picked up yesterday.

One thought on “Today

  1. I am so jealous Ev. We’ve had at least some snow, every single day, for over a week now, and I must admit, I’m starting to get rather sick of it. Oh well, we don’t have much choice, do we. πŸ™‚ At least you are able to get out and enjoy the Spring weather, and I’m happy for your that you can. πŸ™‚
