Spring Means…

…lunch dates with your husband (and forgetting your camera!). We ate at a local Italian place. It was pretty good, but did not fill me up! My appetite is being so strange after this stomach flu.

…family trips to the park after work.

Maggie had a ball at the park today. We usually play with her inside one of the ball fields, so we can close the gates and let her off her lead for a while.

She also found some pinecones to eat. Our dog is so weird!

…grilling out for dinner.

We thawed some pork chops while we were at the park, so Nick got to grilling and I roasted the veggies.

Nick’s still the grill master! I don’t know what he put on this pork, but it was delicious! Smoky, sweet, perfect.

I roasted a few potatoes (in olive oil, salt, garlic powder, and smoked paprika) at 425 for 30 minutes and threw the asparagus in for the last 10 minutes.

It was a great and easy dinner and one I can’t wait to make again! I’m so happy grilling season is coming back. Clean up is so much easier, and Nick gets to cook a lot more ;)

 

I’m off to cuddle!
