Weekend Update

The island was blessed with such beautiful weather last weekend. Though I spent most of the last few days studying, taking exams (just one more to go!), and working, I made sure to take time and sit outside. Besides, studying outside in a beach chair is so much better than at a table indoors!

My mom spent a lot of time in her garden. She's been working especially hard this year, as some sort of creature keeps pulling her plants out of the ground. She continues to replant them, hoping that they will remain intact- determined that the garden will yield plenty of peppers, green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and herbs :)

Milo and Indie enjoyed the sunshine and played in the yard for most of the weekend. They're always ready for any opportunity to go outside, explore the yard and all the smells, and chase squirrels up the trees!

For dinner Sunday night, Chuck grilled up some awesome chicken, I sauteed squash and zucchini, and my mom roasted some red potatoes. The potatoes were super simple to prepare. All she did was cut the potatoes in eighths, drizzle them with some extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss them with some fresh rosemary from the garden. It was such a delicious, yet easy dinner (aka my favorite type of dinner).
How was your weekend? Did you do anything exciting?
