…and counting. Yep, in 20 days, I will turn the big 4-0. Can you believe it? It is crazy. Time is flying by. This month is flying by. Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Then my voyage into the 40s, Hanukkah, and Christmas. 2010, where have you gone? It just seemed like yesterday we were saying “Happy New Year”.
How the MoFo are you? I am still cooking up a storm as usual. Less pictures though. Our camera was dropped by a friend’s daughter and it has been on the fritz ever since. Fingers crossed I get a new camera for my birthday. That being said, when I do take a picture, the camera will either try to shut off or delete the file. Not so helpful.
Here is our meal plan for this week.
Mon-Cajun burgers, coleslaw, & homefries
Tues-Chipotle split pea soup w/garlic foccacia
Fri-Pepperoni & mushroom stromboli
Sat-Chana masala w/chapatis
Sun-ChickUn n’ biscuits casserole
The other day I dehydrated eggplant to make eggplant chips or as the boys call them, “purple chips”. I used 1 large eggplant, thinly sliced, threw it in a bowl, coated it with olive oil and sea salt and placed it in the dehydrator. Wow! It was a tasty treat. The boys liked them too, especially Little Bear. He pretty much ate 3/4 of a large eggplant in the form of eggplant chips.
Today I have the crockpot simmering. It is full of the chipotle split pea soup recipe I created. Wowza! It smells so good in the house right now. I was never a fan of split pea soup as a kid. But then, my only knowledge of split pea soup came from a can. Gross! Now the real stuff, homemade with fresh veggies, that is boss.
Well, I am off to make some mac and cheese for the two little guys. Hope you have a lovely Tuesday. And I hope to post some pictures later this week. Pending the camera cooperates.
peas and love….
