March is here!

It's hard to believe March is here!! For the first full week of Lent Tom and I did an experiment we 'adapted' from the book 7: An Experimental Mutiny against Excess by Jen Hatmaker. We planned 5 dinners using only what was in our pantry with the addition of only 7 new ingredients. It was fun and rewarding, and Wednesday night I was thrilled to pull together roasted vegetables and Giada's popovers with ingredients in my fridge and pantry (as side dishes)!! Before dinner we visited the beach and someone was kite-boarding! Thursday night the girls attended a birds of prey show at Hope, they loved it! Saturday we visited DeGraaf Nature Center where Abby loved bird watching and we all enjoyed learning about maple sugar toffee made over ice! Saturday night my dad watched the kids so Tom and I could have a wonderful date night at 'The Fennville Station'. It was a great Italian restaurant in a 1940's train car! Sunday we made an early St. Patrick's Day Feast for my dad who will be in LA for the real day! Sophie made her own Soda Bread this year! So great!!
Happy March!!
