I am in a weird age right now- I am out of college and I am supposed to be "grown up". I am trying to make my way through this time of in between so I figured I could just write about my day to day, etc. The idea of being a "southern lady" has always been intriguing to me, but kind of a joke as well- do these people really exist? I have always dreamed of cooking and baking and sewing and having my own matching furniture- even having a vegetable garden. So I attempt to do these things as a "southern lady" and "grown up" would do- sometimes they work out and sometimes they don't.
Case in point..I have a small vegetable garden in my backyard that my boyfriend planted- I mainly just look at it and tell him what I want growing in there- so far I haven't had much part in the actual work of it :-) So far we had lettuce, kale, greens, broccoli, onions, and we are currently growing asparagus. It is funny because as we plant this stuff we have no idea what it is going to look like. As the broccoli was growing, every day we would peer over it trying to decide where the broccoli would pop out. Today I was outside looking at the asparagus that was growing- we planted those from seeds, not seedlings, so it is a real mystery what it will look like- I was standing over it and asked John if it would just grow individually or make a bunch all of a sudden.
The one lonely asparagus will it turn into a bunch or just a stalk at a time?
It is super tall!

I picked up the a one pot dinner cooking magazine and tonight I made an awesome turkey meatball dinner- I will post the recipe and pictures tomorrow.
