Okay, so this weekend my boyfriend and I are throwing our first party together. We are having a joint birthday BBQ at our place. Since our birthdays are 3 weeks apart, we decided that a joint party made the most sense. And my boyfriend…being a typical guy…has lived in his place for a while now and […]Read More.
Today was a big day for me! I harvested the very first thing from my little backyard raised bed garden! A head of broccoli! Man, that feels good. I’m in love with my broccoli. I wish there was some way I could preserve it. There’s not you say? Ok ok, I’ll just eat it. How […]Read More.
I love grilled pineapple. One of my favorite things about summer is all the pineapple! Mix it with pork tenderloin, and its so good.I always see the premade kabobs at the store and wonder how good they are and I make my own from time to time.
