Tulip Festival Bust

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Last weekend, we went to the beach for the first time this year. Adam and I both took the day off on Friday to enjoy the beautiful weekend weather and go to the Lewes Tulip Festival, which I had been looking forward to for a few weeks.

We arrived on Friday morning and headed over to Lewes with his parents. I expected to see thousands of tulips (just like the website describes) however, we soon realized that the tulips had all bloomed a few weeks earlier because of the hot weather. The dissapointment didn't last long and we still walked all around admiring the old houses and gorgeous gardens.

I might be too young to be thinking about retirement, but Lewes might be on the list.

Recipe Rut Solutions #12 and #13

While I don't have pictures of me actually making these two recipes, I can tell you that we've made them multiple times and they are some of our new favorites, whether we eat them in the same meal, or separately. Adam originally made the orzo dish for our anniversary dinner and we first made the pork glaze on New Years Day on grilled pork, however, we've since realized that it's much better when done in the crock pot.

Orzo with Roasted Vegetables

Both recipes are really easy to make and both are great the next day for lunch! The orzo can be served hot or cold, and last time we made it, we actually threw in some shrimp and made it a meal by itself.
