Garden, Lunch, Cupcakes...oh my!!!

I have an established garden that I keep Texas natives...plants that won't pass out in our HOT summers...I love the beginning of March when everything pops back out. My garden is lined with herbs that I get to use all year long!

My raised beds are for my vegetables. My 5 1/2 year old helped me plants seeds. We have green beans, chives, cilantro, parsley, cucumbers and basil sprouting up. The wooden trellis is for the beans. The black one is for the cucumbers. We're hopeful!!
  My serranos and jalapenos survived our mild winter, so I cut them back and now they seem very happy! 
I've seen this Angry Bird made from Baby Bell cheese ALL over Pinterest, so when it was on sale at Costco, I thought I'd give it a try. The boys LOVED it!! 
Simply, cut the bottom off, cut a thin piece of baby carrot into a beak, add candy eyes and a couple pieces of olive for his Angry eyebrows!
 Wednesdays are half days for Adrian, so we ate outside in the beautiful breezy sunshine.
Tomorrow is Mrs. Elliot's birthday! She is Adrian's sweet, sweet kindergarten teacher. One mom is bringing flowers, so I made flower cupcakes. Adrian is in a class with 5 other boys. 
 Dinner is served!
Two easy meals...pasta with bacon, grilled chicken and cream. If I had had mushrooms, I would have sauteed them in a heartbeat! Pioneer Woman has a recipe similar to this. It's heavenly!
Pulled Pork Sandwiched with slaw and good Texas Beer!

 Sorry for the hiatus. My allergies to ceder and ash have made me miserable for a few weeks off and on. I feel like I had the flu, but no fever. It's awful! Then my oldest got sick too, then the little one, then life happens and before I knew I hadn't posted anything in a month! I hope to take more pictures of lunches if I can get over the time change and go to sleep earlier...
Easter is coming, so I'll have a tablescape up soon too.
blessings to you all
