What's Cooking

I'm still enjoying my mini-bundt cake pan as you can see. Other than that, here's what's been cooking lately: white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts cookies/ craisins and carrots muffins/ bacon and tomato sandwiches/ grilled chicken, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes with rotini.

Then there's the salisbury steak meatballs. Both my husband and I love salisbury steaks, but my kids wouldn't touch it. Yet if you make it into a meatball, they'll eat it. I don't know why, but at this point I've given up on understanding the deep and mysterious minds of toddlers and food :)  As long as they enjoy it, I'm a happy momma.

It's been such a hit and so easy and quick to whip up the sauce once you have the meatballs ready that I've been making a huge batch of the meatballs on the weekends so that I can freeze the rest for later. I've served it with rice, potatoes, pasta, and even bread. I think the key is in the worcestershire sauce. I've made it without the worcestershire sauce, and it just isn't the same.

What's been cooking with you?

Our Pumpkin

Yikes, I can't believe that Halloween is next week. Where did the time go?

Fortunately, we were able to hit the pumpkin patch and picked out a pumpkin recently. Then my husband and the kids did some pumpkin carving. Half way through the endeavor, the kiddos decided to run off and play in the sand box because the pumpkin just doesn't smell very good. It's not the most pleasant of smells, but that's how a pumpkin smells like inside, lol!

The next day my son decided that the pumpkin needed decorations on it, so they painted it. Afterwards, they both thought that it might be hungry so they fed it some sand and sea shells :) They both had great fun with the pumpkin. We'll do it again next year!

paper flowers

The weather wasn't all that great lately for playing outside, so instead of picking flowers outside, we made our own out of construction paper.

My kiddos helped with like two flowers and then ran off to play with other toys, haha! They came back intermittently to pick up more flowers that I made and then passed out the flowers to all their toy buddies.

I used the left over tapes from our rocket ship/boat project. It's nothing fancy, but it kept them busy on a day that we couldn't go out to play.
