Last week a mom's group brought their kids to The Secret Garden for a field trip.
It's always fun seeing them having a hands-on experience.
Listening to a story about leaving a zero footprint.
(That's me; I was able to get this picture from their Instagram account since I never have pictures of myself reading to the kids.)
Along with some wheelbarrow shenanigans.
It's always a fun, educational time and great to be outdoors when the weather is good.
Plus, I was able to come home with some fresh chard from the garden which I cooked up in two different ways.
Sauteed in olive oil with lots of garlic and tomatoes and served over leftover rice.
And then yesterday, I sauteed it again, but this time with garlic, cherry tomatoes, mixed beans and wheat pasta.
A squeeze of lemon juice on both dishes was the perfect finishing touch.
I'm linking to Traude's A New Life campaign of "small steps to a better world."
Practicing mindfulness, sustainability and quality of life.
Wishing you a wonderful week!
