2014 Week 33

We found a little buddy in the yard this week.
The kids took good care of him and then deposited him in the garden to live.
On another note, summer is now coming to a close over here.
I'm sad to say that the kiddos are back in school this week,
so it's back to the grind for us.

BUT, it's also my birthday this week! 
So, we're still having a little fun.

Sunday - Salads; spinach, orzo and garden tomatoes and zuccs. Homemade chicken tenders added for the kiddos.
