Recent Things: Lots of Laughs, Garden Goodness and Smoothies

Why hello, you! I hope you've been having a good week because IT'S FRIIIIIIIIIIDAAAAAAAAAAY. Or should I say Fri-YAY because we have another free Friday night and Jesse and I are so looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow morning as we have been struggling to wake up at 6am for work all week long. 

Lots has been happening this week though, so let's jump right to it!
Here's what we've been up to recently >> 

Recent Excitement: The SIL farm is getting ready for another year of deliciousness (we hope!). We recently re-planted our veggie patch and it's already going so well!

Above we've got corn at the back and cucumbers at the front (with our stakes/chicken wire ready to go!) with zucchini and lettuce in our other veggie patch/greenhouse section. 

Recent Laughs: My husband is very clever - and very handy. He's known for fixing things, however, he's also kind of known for rushing into things too :P For Christmas last year I bought Jesse a dart board. A really heavy wooden dart board with a full case and all the fixings. 

We haven't yet used it because we don't have a wall to put it on - however, Jesse had a grand idea. He was going to use scrap wood to make a frame for the dart board so we could put it up and play anywhere. 

His plan was grand. His planning? Not so much. Being the dorky girl I am, I asked Jesse a million questions, questioning his plans to use a flimsy piece of wood with the heavy dart board secured on a single point. It just wasn't going to work, however, I realised I had to let him try it anyway.

It failed and we laughed the entire time - and then we came up with a sturdier solution that was a success and played darts the rest of the night ;P 

Recent Dinners: We are still grilling ALL THE THINGS on our George Foreman Easy to Clean BBQ. The dinner you see above was a little bit of a fail but delicious nonetheless. Grilled steak with mashed grilled sweet potatoes (we pre-cooked them a little longer than planned as I was washing Trixie), spiralised salad and a creamy dreamy asparagus sauce. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmo!

Recent Baking: I have just whipped up another batch of these Lightened Up Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies as they are seriously delicious and so easy to make! Yum yum yum!

Recent Obsession: Paleolicious Protein Powders! The whey + cacao has to be my absolute fave. I've been drinking palelicious smoothies all week long. Banana + whey + cacao + HEAPS of ice is my fave.

Recent Hits: You guys have been loving this One Bowl Lightened Up Oreo Brownie Recipe this week and I cannot blame you as they are AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH-MAZE-ING.

But tell me, what are your weekend plans?
And what's been happening in your world recently?
