Sure hope that since it is Sunday - a special day unto itself - Maria will do so much better. She must be miserable.
We are expecting 80 degrees today - we shall see. No rain in sight but the mountains still have a little snow on them. Always have LOVED looking at snow in the mountains - from my yard that is. Gorgeous.
Last night I had some very good orange chicken and WOK veggies. Great dinner. I have gotten really enjoy that WOK. Just a bit difficult to fix bigger means like pot roasts, etc as it is now just me and the cats. Those two now think everything should be their way. LOL. Will say now that the weather is nicer Ditty wants to spend most of his time outdoors - I encourage that. Coming in during that long period of freezing it was a good thin he did come in. Now he remembers what it is to roam on his own, check out everyone and everywhere again. He is also going back over to the old auto repair facility. There is now a tractor repair business there. Hope they do well.
I need to finish getting ready for church - hope all have a great day. Dinner tonight? Probably the remainder of last night's dinner. LOL

while for the cough to disappear.

Tonight: Stir fried cashew nut chicken. Shrimp fried rice.

After several days of beautiful warm weather, back to windy and cold, though sun is in and out. It is supposed to get very warm shortly, will wait until then for more gardening, HATE wind, lol
Sunday was cheeseburgers and salad, made a Roquefort dressing, so good I hardly had room for any cheeseburger, and last night was salmon and the free asparagus that was our produce market's freebee for the week, so delicious the dollop of mayo wasn't necessary. DH had a side of leftover pesto fettuccine from Saturday night.
@pooky1 What is Maria and/or Anna planning for Easter dinner?
Hope everyone enjoys the week.

good afternoon everyone. mousiegirl. i have no idea what anna or maria or probably both are making. annas sister and her sisters grandson just left after 2 weeks of being here from italy. and they had a direct flight to italy at 620 last night. well there flight didnt actully leave until after 11 last night and im not sure what happened but instead of going strait to italy they ended up in paris instead. as of an hour ago they were still waiting for a flight back to italy. all i know is i would be so freaking out. so with all that going on she hasnt said about easter dinner. maria made for dinner today pork with apples and pecans with a sweet sauce and baked sweet potatoes. it was very good. hope everyone has a great day.

Maybe the stop over in Paris had to do with the Notre Dame fire......Doesn't make much sense but what else could it be ?
I didn't really even think about dinner on Easter but did remember to order all the children (and teens) baskets fron Williams Sonoma about a month ago..........What is everyone doing for Easter ?

I knew Easter is coming up but forgot that it is this Sunday. I do know I will make potato salad, deviled eggs, but almost positive it's the two of us & I have a ham steak in the freezer. A big ham is too much for just us. Need to figure out a veggie & dessert. DH is easy to cook for so he would be happy with a Popsicle for dessert, who know he may just have that dessert. LOL
