56 Momths

Dear Beebs and Chooch, This was one of those crazy months when there was something planned for every second of every day.  Every weekend was a birthday party, event or some other form of crazy.  One of our busiest weekends Daddy was away for one of his annual Boyz Weekend. It started with Daddy’s annual […]

Toasted Sesame Carrot and Goat Cheese Salad

Tonight’s dinner was decidedly orange.  It wasn’t planned that way but more ended up that way out of necessity.  We are tee minus 10 days from leaving for holiday so I am trying to buy as little groceries as possible and use up as many perishables as I can invent into a meal. Last weekends […]

Experimenting with Shrimp Curry

I am thankful every day that my kids will eat spicy food….not too spicy but they will eat a good curry…and life just isn’t worth living without curry. We have had some record breaking heat.  With the humidity it has been more like late July.  When it is hot like this no one wants to […]
