Where did the week go?

This week went by so fast.   Normal chores around the house, cleaning, shopping.  We've started putting together travel plans, and packing lists, and researching things to do and see when we go to Orlando, and Cocoa Beach, and then head north.  Before I knew was Friday!  And Friday was a bit overcast, so it was a perfect day for Rich to check out the sprinklers, and for me to trim the bushes out front. 

And of course after all that work - who felt like cooking?  Just a quick trip into town for Chinese Take-out!

And then we did some cooking over the weekend.  Saturday we did Stromboli.
Genoa Salami, Prosciutto, Pepperoni, Swiss cheese, Mozzarella Cheese, and Grated Parmesan Cheese. Brushed with melted butter, minced garlic and parsley..........and a little pasta sauce on the side. One of our favorite meals ............... and they were very good,   but this time we both agreed.......they could have used just a little bit more cheese.

Last weekend was Easter, but because we decided to take a trip down to Dania Beach for Jai-Alai we didn't have our traditional Easter Dinner.   We always have Ham at Easter time, and always look forward to left overs, and making ham and macaroni and cheese, and ham and potato soup.............and of course ham sandwiches.  So Sunday we put a 7 lb ham in the oven along with Scalloped/Au- Gratin Potatoes, Sweet Potato Casserole ( but I didn't have any marshmallows!) and Green Bean Casserole.

And of course - a glass (or two) of Pinot Grigio. For dessert I had a small piece of chocolate cake, while Rich made himself a peanut butter cup blizzard!   And while I did the dishes, Rich cut up and bagged the rest of the ham! 

It's been a couple of weeks since we've seen our neighbors, Jim and Patty but they called today to let us know they'd be arriving tomorrow............ and we made plans for dinner at Golden Corral one night.
