Last night I had been working in the herb garden, setting out some of my garden pretties and as I came back up on the deck a male hummingbird came and flew in front of me and just sort of stopped there in mid-air then flew to the feeder. Hey, I was so tickled to see him. He's the first of the year. Between the Purple Martins, Bluebirds and Hummingbirds it's hard to not smile, just a little!!!
Hubby has been telling me for 2 months to pitch the refried beans I had in the freezer. I made a really awesome recipe awhile back, made more than we could eat but could NOT pitch the leftovers out even though Hubby kept saying, "Just pitch it - we'll never eat it." Oh how I hate to waste good food so into the freezer it went!! Yesterday evening I made some cheese, chicken and ground beef Quesadillas. They were delicious but I made way too much so guess what? Yep. I pulled out the refried beans this morning. I retrieved a 4 soft tortillas from the package, put refried beans on them along with some of the leftover chicken and ground beef filling, folded them up, wrapped 3 in plastic wrap and put them into the freezer for our lunches on the days when Hubby and I are exhausted from working in the garden. I'm feeling a little cocky and full!! One of them made a great lunch today!! TeeHee!!
Went out after supper and walked about a half mile and decided to go up the hill to my herb garden and walk around up there. I love Spring in the herb garden. You never know what you're going to find. There's always something that has spread to a different spot or perhaps a bird has placed a seed in an odd place and it's such fun to see what's coming up. I was over by my bench and looked down and saw something that looked like nettles. Now, there are no nettles over there and I wondered what in the world it was so I reached down to feel and take hold of it. Guess what? It WAS nettles!!! I found that out mighty fast. My hand was stinging something fierce so I decided to use the old "tried and true" method. I reached down and got some plantain leaves, chewed them up and then pressed them on the stinging area. Works my friends - it really works!!!
