There’s been a whole lotta relaxing going on around here – much more watching of HGTV than working on our home + garden!
We went out for a run around 11 and came home to work on the yard for a bit. Matt found these two little turtles in the yard! One was upsidedown and the other was nearby – we think he might have been stuck upsidedown and the other was helping him? I sure hope he isn’t sick!
I mowed the yard..
But thanks to a rainstorm (and the HUGE one that’s on the way) I stopped halfway through. Matt picked up where I left off and finishing in the drizzle (he can mow the yard 10x faster than I can)
After showers, we made sardines and kale chips for lunch!
I found this new brand of sardines at Whole Foods – in MAPLE SYRUP flavor!! I love anything sweet-savory so I bought them right away. They were $3.59, which is obviously more than the basic ones, but I’ve found that getting a little bit fancier brand really does taste better
I LOVED the flavor of these – they were not very fishy at all! The wood smoke seemed to dry them out a bit, and the maple flavor was great. And of course I love that they were sustainably harvested from within the USA. If you’ve been wanting to try sardines, try these!
I mashed half the tin with some plain yogurt, a tsp more maple and some chopped yellow pepper
And then melted that onto a Dakota bun with bleu d’auvergne – INCREDIBLE!
Served with a big pile of kale baked in coconut oil and lavender salt. Ketchup on the side!
The sun tea turned out really good! Loved that I didn’t have to boil the water or wash an extra container. Just soaked it in sun for a few hours yesterday.
Have a great afternoon!
