This will be the new home of Another New Season.

I’m excited to be able to expand and improve on my blog. Hopefully you will all find some useful tips, tricks and just plain fun info there! Stay tuned spring cleaning is about to begin, more adventures in the garden and lots more to come!

We have been terrible procrastinators since we moved in January. We had started a lot of projects but they have been sitting unfinished for a while now. This past weekend we kicked it into high gear and got stuff done!

Here is a run down of the projects we’ve finished up:

 

Made cute sign for the garden:

Our sunroom looks like a greenhouse with all the seedlings. We started a few dozen more seeds:

And at last my shelves are up for the spices:

(note: we actually had some shelves up and they were super weak so I went out to Home Depot and got these, they can hold up to 85 lbs! Much better than the other shelves that could only hold 3 lbs)

Curtian Rods are hung in the livingroom:

Finished Pillows for the sunroom furniture!

While I was away in CT I stopped in at Pottery Barn and walked out with these yellow cushion covers. It was a lot easier than sewing them myself (which was my original plan).

The picture above is where I took my nap after we finished all of these projects! I’m still pretty tired!

Today is Wednesday, so be sure to pop over to We Are That Family  for other great Works for Me Wednesday posts!

Menu Plan Monday

mpm3

Breakfast choices: Strawberries, pineapple or blueberries over a bowl of cereal, oatmeal or 2 small Fiber One Pancakes.

Lunch choices: Healthy Choice meal from the freezer (they are vegeterian so I’ll have to add some chicken). Honey Baked Chicken over rice with Green beans, Leftover Steak with Mixed veggies.

Snacks: Apples, Berry Smoothie, Yoguarts, Celery with Peanut butter

Monday: Stuffed Chicken Breast (stuffed with spinach and cheese), Cheesy Rice and Spinach Casserole

Tuesday: Salmon Chowder with rolls and fresh veggies on the side.

Wednesday: Soup and Salad night (Yes soup 2 times this week, hope hubby doesn’t mind)

Thursday: Crock Pot roast, Carrots, Peas and Potatoes

Friday: Homemade pizza

Saturday: Leftovers

Sunday: Easter dinner. We’re hosting Easter for the first time ever! I’m going to look into some good recipes for a ham glaze. I’d love to hear what recipes you use when you cook a ham. I’m not even sure how long it has to bake!!!

Here is the Easter Menu:  Ham, Parmesan Crusted Mashed Potatoes, Greenbeans, No Knead Rolls (thanks Pioneer Woman!) I’m sure I’ll add a few other things to the menu once I have some time to sit down and think about it.

We are also celebrating my hubbys birthday on Easter, so I knew I had to make him a cake… well I got lucky…

Some neighbor kids came by last week selling cheesecakes as a fundraiser for a missions trip. Needless to say I invited them right in and ordered a double chocolate cheesecake. I’ll stick a candle in and and sing him a song! He’ll love it.
