Check out the (unexpected) scene that I came home to on Saturday night:
The ugly bushes are gone!
Whoa, right? Apparently, the landscaping project at our house started a little early!
After getting a bunch of quotes from different landscapers, Mal and I pretty much made up our mind on who we wanted to hire. We hadn’t yet signed a contract or given a deposit, and we only briefly talked about what color pavers we wanted for our walkway, but I guess Mal decided to pull the trigger and just get it done, so the landscaping company started the demo on Saturday afternoon. I seriously can’t wait to see the final product! (FYI: We’re doing the landscaping first and then the paving. It’s so exciting!!!)
Last night’s dinner was delicious, satisfying, and came together in no time at all. Mal cooked some chicken the night before, so I just chopped up the leftovers and added them to a skillet with sautÃ©ed mushrooms, canned artichoke hearts, capers, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Easy-peasy and it turned out great. If you’d like to recreate this meal, here are the approximate measurements I used:
- 8 ounces mushrooms, sautÃ©ed in olive oil
- 1 14-ounce can quartered artichoke hearts
- 2 tbsp capers
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 4-5 cups chunked chicken breast
