The Charlottesville Welcome Wagon was waiting for us! Pumpkin (aka “Punky” nicknamed Karen Monson) wanted us to know her vacation was just as relaxing as ours
The garden, however, was hard at work!! We have a house sitter who minds the fort while we’re out of town, and she must have watered the plants well (either that or it rained the whole week!)
It’s HUGE! Almost zucchini time!
Matt is so proud.
For a snack on our [long] trip, I had a greek yogurt and a handful of almonds. Neither Matt nor I was that hungry when we got home to our 82* house. I unpacked while he prepared a simple dinner with a fridge containing next to nothing:
Garden lettuce (!!), bell pepper, local bacon we pulled from the freezer, garbanzos from the pantry. Matt sauteed the toppings all together and served them over the greens.
Home is SO sweet home tonight. I forgot how much I love our house! We are all unpacked and the laundry is almost done (just one load since we did one before we left the beach yesterday!) Can’t wait for my cozy bed! [Just hope it’s not too hot!] Summer is here.
I can’t get too cozy at home though because I leave in a week for BlogHer Food in Seattle!
