It’s a holiday weekend so we’ll be grilling this Monday.  Greg always makes a lot so I’m going to work the leftovers into different meals like chicken salad and stir fry.

The garden is also starting to burst at the seams so I’ll be incorporating lots of asparagus, snap peas, peppers, Swiss chard, spinach and tomatoes into every meal. It’s a shame the corn isn’t ready yet, but we should have some by July 4th.

If you keep up with me on Facebook, you’ll know our old Sub Zero is on its last legs. This week we’ll have to commit to a new refrigerator. Not looking forward to that. I think we’ve settled on a Samsung. It seems the sturdiest for the price. The 4-door French doors are a nice design element too. One quarter of the fridge can be adjusted from cold to freezing depending on our needs.

We’re still taking measurements to see how it’ll fit in the ginormous space left by the old built-in. Greg will probably build a narrow pull out cabinet to one side. He’s a great cabinetmaker so I’m looking forward to seeing how it looks. I’ll be sure to post photos when it’s done.

For all my USA friends, I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day. If you have someone in the service, give them an extra hug for me. Stay safe.
