A Decade of Blessings

This weekend my little boy turns 10.  How in the world did that happen already?  He is an incredible kid.  He has been the light of our lives and we enjoy every minute with him...even math homework time!  He loves anything outdoors...snowmobiling, surfing on the lake, baseball, soccer you name it.  This weekend we will celebrate his birthday with his travel baseball team at a tournament.  Three other players have birthdays at exactly the same time so the party is on!  A tournament championship would be a great gift don't you think?  Go Muckdogs.  Happy Birthday Sweetie we love you more than you will ever know.

One Pot Meals are a Staple this Time of Year

With baseball, soccer, bible study, book reports, tutoring, school..oh yeah and work all converging sometimes dinner time is fast and furious.  I have been looking for one pot, crock pot or easy to assemble dishes that satisfy.  This Chicken Tomato and Mushroom dish from Martha Stewart was a hit.  Fast, easy and really flavorful.

It begins

October 6 and our first snow of the season.  So that makes summer from June 6 - Oct 6.  Officially short.  Oh well time to start tucking away the deck furniture, thinking about fall and hauling in wood pellets.  Fall does bring with it my favorite time of year to cook though...apples, roasted veggies, stews, soups and baking.  Yesterday I had Butternut Squash soup for lunch.  Yum.
