We decided to have a "lazy weekend".  The weather has been colder than in weekends past and it just seemed the perfect thing to do.  No big surprise that the animals were pretty happy about this type of weekend.  All except the chickens.  They really enjoy when we're out working in the yard while they're running around.  They do love to chat.

It was a weekend spent cooking, baking, reading and relaxing.  It's been quite sometime since we've had one like this.  We went grocery shopping Saturday night for my monthly shopping and dinner to my Mom's Saturday as well, but other than that, we never left the house.

I made stromboli for the first time on Saturday.  It turned out really good.  I used pizza dough I had in the freezer, thawed it, layered it with 2 T. of tomato sauce then layered meat and cheese, rolled it up and baked it.  Delicious.  I also made Oreo Truffles, Taco Soup, Meatloaf, rolls and more.

We now have regular below-freezing nights which meant I had to pick the last of the garden - herbs, kohlrabi, brussels sprouts, and scallions.  I haven't pulled all of the carrots yet but will be doing so this week.

This weekend was also for reflection.  On where we are, where we've been and where we want to go.

Hoping you had a lovely and relaxing weekend too!

Sounds like a wonderful weekend. Looks like every one rested and stayed warm. I love the littlest egg in your row of eggs on your banner. Loving the coop too.
All of that food you made sounds so good. I need to get my rear in gear and get cooking too.
