Note to self

Plug in camera. download pics. Write up catchy blurb. Hit "publish"

And Voila! It's that easy.

And when I make myself follow these oh so simple steps, you, dear reader, shall have some pics and recipes to try. Tonight's tomato pasta was a smash hit. I didn't take a picture and now there's none left!!!

In the meantime, head on over to my main blog and post your parenting ups and downs for a chance to win some cookies! Or at least have one of my favourite dessert recipes sent to you!

Grocery Day, September 11

Ok, potato boats. This IS your week. I promise, ok?! Of course, that does mean I should be baking potatoes right about now....

Catching up on suppers

So, Tuesday was supposed to be potato boats. (Those poor things are doomed - that's 2 meal plans in a row they've been bumped!) Wednesday was to be chicken pot pies and Thursday was lentil & rice pilaf.

Due to the extremely hot and humid weather and lack of on-time groceries, Tuesday ended up being Monday's Sausage Soup. It was a hit last time and just as yummy this time around. But it was so stinkin' hot in the house, no one *really* wanted to eat it. We choked it down!

Wednesday's "beat the heat" attempt was hard boiled eggs, corn on the cob, canned beans and hamsteak. The boys gobbled it up!

Thursday was hawt. It was about 40 celcius with the humidex. (About 104). Yick. So we made smoothies (bananas, strawberry yogurt, frozen pineapple/blueberries/raspberries and milk) and a chickpea nacho salad. (chickpeas, corn, cheddar and feta cheese, tomatoes, vinegar, oil and Epicure's nacho spice.)

Friday we stuck with crock pot baked beans and sausage. Happy anniversary, sweetheart - have some gassy beans!!
