Menu Plan Monday - May 21

Is it summer where you are? It has been unseasonably warm here and I'm actually loving it. My garden is growing, though I have only put out the colder weather crops - we have to wait until the end of May to be safe. Even then, we often find we're rushing out at night to cover the garden because of a frost or freeze warning. Yesterday I started some seeds in containers so that I can bring in the pots when chance of frost hits: lavender, basil, thyme and cumin. I'm so excited! I also planted some onions yesterday as they can take a good frost or freeze and still grow nicely.

You had me at "milkshake"! :) I'm going to have to try to make potato soup sometime - that's such a homey, comforting meal to have!

Have a wonderful week!
