Busy, busy, busy!

I woke up this morning and threw together steak and egg breakfast bites (basically this recipe but with diced, leftover steak instead of sausage) and washed, hulled, and sliced some strawberries. By the time everything was ready Munchkin and Hubby were up.

Here's my breakfast plate:

Yep, I had to add some Frank's Hot Sauce and sour cream to my breakfast bite. Talk about your good eats!

Then we were off to the barn to meet with a family interested in our pony. After lots of thought and discussion we decided to put her up for sale. She's a wonderful pony but does not like very small kids and I can't trust her around Munchkin. While part of me doubts that she'd actually kick or bite the kiddo its too big a chance to take. So, we decided to find her a family with older kids who would give her the love and attention she deserves.

We spent most of the morning and early afternoon showing the pony and by the time we got back home I was starving. Hubby quickly grilled up a bunch of Polish sausages and I wrapped them with provolone, mustard, and lettuce with carrots on the side:

In the late afternoon we had another person interested so we pretty much spent the day at the barn. It was fun talking with another horse person and she fell in love with the pony. Looks like pony has found a perfect home!

It was pretty late by the time we got back to the house and I was very tempted to get pizza. Honestly I just wanted to wash off the horsey smell and dust and go to bed, but I had a chicken marinating in the fridge and recipes from The Primal Palate's  new book "Gather" that I'd picked up at Costco to try out.

First I got the chicken on the grill, next Munchkin helped me make Green Bean Salad with Artichoke Hearts and Olives. I didn't have any fresh green beans, my plants are only 3 inches tall, so I used canned. I know, I know, boo! hiss! hey, its what I had. Munchkin pronounced it YUM! worthy though, even with mushy canned beans.

Hubby had picked up some corn on the cob from the village store and once the chicken was done I husked the ears and tossed them on the grill. I wasn't too thrilled with corn in May, since I knew it wouldn't be very tasty, but I gotta applaud the guy-a year ago he'd have brought home Pasta-Roni.

Here's my supper:

For dessert I finished the last of the cherries. *sigh* Local cherries need to ripen faster!!
