This week is going to be another busy week, and there are quite a few days when I simply won’t be home at dinner time, so planning before hand is even more important, so that my husband simply has to put something pre-prepared in the oven. The ingredient of the week is egg. I am very allergic to egg, so you won’t be seeing it in my menu! However, I do have chicken planned, does that count? 😉
Our host this week is Manda at Asparagus Thin, who always has a great, global menu.
My garden is bursting with raspberries canes, and they’re fruiting! I bought a few raspberry plants a few years back and they never grew. I decided to try once more, and that ONE plant has become 30 or so. It’s such a big patch of raspberry canes that I was watering it last summer, and a very indignant rabbit hopped out. Oops.
Most of the time, we’ve been having raspberries plain, but as the season goes on, I’ll have to find something fun to do with them.
