Sweet Potato Sunday

Sundays are quickly becoming my favorite day of the week. The last few Sundays we have gone to church and then spent the rest of the day working in our yard. It is really starting to come along and Danny and I really enjoy doing it! The weeds are finally starting to die, the new grass is coming in and my garden looks delish! Yesterday we planted our final plants; tomatoes and bell peppers. That’s all I thought we were doing at least, Danny came home with jalapenos, basil and oregano, so we had to get a few containers for them. We mowed and then created a little rock path off the deck. It looks so nice!

We spent the rest of our night day dreaming about our next project and eating of course. We grilled out Saturday night AND again last night! I LOVE grilling season. For one it is so easy to cook and clean up and two, Danny cooks. It’s an all-around win-win! Last night Danny marinated a flat iron in…. something… I don’t know what it was exactly but it was to die for! Then I made zoodles (zucchini noodles) and sweet potatoes and we also finished up the rest of the homemade French bread I made on Saturday (no it doesn’t last long in our house).

Check out this recipe for easy and yummy sweet potatoes that I got from lilluna.com!
