Outside space

I've decided to do a little garden this spring/summer in out little back patio space. We don't get much sun, but I'm thinking we could do a little something.
A friend of ours came over and cleared out all the weeds and blackberry branches, so now we have this:

We're going to need more of these bad boys!

We're going to have to build some cedar planter boxes for the elevated portion, and I'll have to get some supplies for potatoes, I haven't decided where they will go, but I would like to grow them in straw above ground like this:

This week's meals

We got two 'Plated' and three 'Blue apron' meals this week, and it couldn't have come at a better time! I picked up some extra shifts this week and didn't really have the time to focus on meal planning. Boom! Done! So far this week we had the braised short ribs w/ root mash and demiglace and skillet mushroom pot pie from Plated. Blue Apron is up next!

Leftovers from the short ribs, lol

Plated recipe cards

Mushroom pot pie filling underway!

Cute little bottles and containers, all measured out!

Thyme and veggie broth, patiently waiting....

Simmer on!

So delish!
