Lights, camera, action…..
Yippee! Insert happy dance. I got a new camera for my birthday. Which means more food pictures and of course cute pictures of the little guys. My 40th birthday was awesome. I spent it with my family. It was quite nice.
Food I have cooked this week has been tasty. I made our Spicy African Peanut Stew recipe. It can be made on the stovetop, but I decided to let it simmer in the crockpot all day. I served it with some homemade crusty bread. Such goodness.
Homemade crusty bread.
Last night I made a Curried Eggplant Casserole. It was a recipe I created a while back when we got a ton of eggplant in our CSA box. We were given some eggplant from a loved ones garden last week before the freeze hit. There were a bunch of small ones and I didn’t want them to go to waste sitting around the kitchen. This casserole is creamy and delicious.
Well I am off to make some homemade tortillas. A good friend gave me a recipe. Thanks to her, I will never buy tortillas again. They are so tasty. I am making tostadas for me and the little guys this evening. Yum.
It is Hanukkah. Last night Little Bear started to sing the ‘Happy Birthday’ song when he saw his daddy light the menorah. So cute. Silly baby. We are having a Hanukkah fest this Sunday. I am making latkes, matzo ball soup, field roast, roasted broccoli, and raspberry rugelach cookies. The boys and I are going to make Hanukkah sugar cookies tomorrow.
Speaking of field roast, the recipe I created for our Thanksgiving feast is amazing. The boys love it. They request it everyday. Boogie calls it tofurky. A friend tried the recipe and she and her family loved it too. Yay!
Well I am off to do some chores around the house. Hope you each have a lovely weekend.
peas and love….
