For my fellow fans of Victoria magazine, I bring glad tidings of their latest special interest publication—Spring Bliss (This is not included in the regular magazine subscription). I was fortunate to get to write a couple pieces for this pretty publication, which is now on newsstands!
Speaking of spring, this week I continued my pre-spring cleaning fest with the help of my mom-in-law, who helped wash all the china on my big green hutch in the dining room. I was able to thin out some of the china so that I could better spotlight my collection. To celebrate our progress, we decided to get a small Shamrock Shake at McDonald's. I have to have at least one of those every March!
I am so lucky to have supportive in-laws nearby. Over the weekend, my dad-in-law surprised me with some fresh sockeye salmon from the local fish market. I immediately baked it up for one of our dinners. Yum!
My mom-in-law got me some wonderful Pacific wild cod, which I grilled on my stovetop grill. A 5-ounce portion has only 120 calories. The parents even surprised my husband and I with some delicious rolls from Jaarsma's bakery in Pella. I love their glazed twists and promptly ate three of them! Their apricot danishes are scrumptious, too. Life is good.
