On Saturday, I did some much-needed cleaning. And then I got to work washing and packing freshly-picked lettuce from our garden.
I used to have two friends who each owned local restaurants and can remember several springs when I dropped off coolers full of fresh lettuce.
But over the years, each of them have closed or sold their restaurants.
So now I take the extra lettuce to school and give it to friends.
The lettuces are sweet and tender and we’ve been having salads every night to go with dinner.
Our salad Saturday night, before I added the roasted sunflower seeds.
I wanted pizza, so I picked up one of those Freshetta Artisan pizza crusts from the grocery store and my husband made a spring vegetable & cheese pizza.
I’d never had asparagus on pizza before and am here to tell you that it’s really yummy.
Here it is, ready to go in the oven. I highly recommend this easy meal which we enjoyed while we watched the Kentucky Derby.

They’re beautiful (as are my sons).
Hope your weekend was a pleasant one. Tonight we’re watching the finale of The Amazing Race, which is supposed to be a photo finish. Woot.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
