Memorial Day Weekend

We had a very busy Memorial Day weekend.

On Saturday, I planted our garden. I planted four varieties of tomatoes, a pepper plant, a jalapeno plant, brussel sprouts, carrots, onions, spinach, rosemary, dill, basil, cilantro and chives.


Petunia's and Rosemary

That night we went over to Ty's place. It was a beautiful night so we took a walk to Prospect Park to watch the sunset.


On Sunday morning we walked to Lund's and got some cherries for breakfast.

Our Sunday Morning Stroll

After our morning walk we went to the Mall of America to go to Soul Daddy, the winner of the America's Next Great Restaurant show we had been watching. The pulled pork was really good. I thought the sides were pretty good, Patrick wasn't as impressed.

The dishes below are pulled pork, black eyed pea salad, cornbread waffle, kale, pulled pork sandwich and cheesy grits.

Sunday was also Ben's 1st Birthday party, so we went to celebrate with him.
