It started out quietly with the sun streaming in the windows.
I sat and leisurely sipped a mug of tea while I perused Sharon Santoni's newest book. I keep it on the coffee table in the Humble Bungalow living room so it's easy to pick up. If you haven't had an opportunity to browse through the book which features elegant homes and chateaus of Sharon's wonderful friends you might want to add it to your reading list.
We scurried off to Oak Bay Avenue for a coffee with our family...
our mission was shopping for Hunter boots for Isla...in pink.(of course!)
Afterwards we went off to the park for some fun and games.

I have never bought anything by Coach.
(My son and his lovely wife gave me a Coach silk scarf one Xmas)
They also gave me this J Crew Venus Flytrap necklace.
After our park play time we got into our gardening clothes...
that particular OOTD will not be seen on the blog!
We've been outside for hours prepping the site for our new greenhouse which is due sometime in the next week or so...very exciting to think that we will be able to extend our growing season and that we will be able to grow heirloom tomatoes!
I'm going to freshen up and rustle up some super quick (and easy) chicken burritos.
~ Chicken Burritos ~
Saute sliced onions, red and green pepper strips until soft,
add 1 pound of ground or thinly sliced chicken to the pan and cook until soft and chicken is no longer pink.
Add a Tablespoon of chili powder and 2 teaspoons of cumin and stir
(Red chili flakes or a glug of Frank's Red Hot Sauce are optional)
stir in some regular ketchup, enough to make a sauce.
Grate some cheese, cube some tomatoes and shred some lettuce.
Arrange on a platter and the burritos are almost ready to assemble.
Heat burrito shells in microwave one at a time for about 60 seconds.
top with a small amount of the chicken mixture
garnish with veggies and top with cheese.
Roll up and eat!
Now how much easier could dinner be?
Quick and easy
clean up is a snap

it's time to hit the couch for some relaxation and Netflix .
Wishing you a Happy Weekend.
