Morning friends & Happy Monday to you! My day is lining up to be a pretty busy one since I’m working on using up our latest pickings from our garden to prepare a dozen or so soups to make weeknight meals healthy, cost effective and a breeze. I’ve managed to put away dozens of bags of parboiled green beans, carrots, broccoli, asparagus, corn and greens but now plan to use whatever produce we’re blessed with to prepare soups for the upcoming fall months! Hearty soups are really our go to meals of choice starting in the autumn.

After swimming lessons, a trip to the grocery store and a meeting with a potential daycare for Margsy we headed back to the house to get going on preparing some delicious food for our out guests who arrived at around place right around lunch time for a BBQ. I’m exhausted today but it was oh so worth it! Also, stay tuned for an awesome giveaway in honor of both Father’s Day and the beginning of the grilling season at the bottom of this post! Grilling and chilling is probably our favorite summer activity. Seriously, nothing beats hanging…
