My Favorite Recipes for Fall…
After I finished cooking this recipe I looked around my kitchen (and my neglected house), saw the mess I had made, and just wanted to cry.
I always say things like, “It looks like a tornado went through here…” or “Is there a family a bears living here? Who made this mess?!…”
But this was different.
This was worse.
I thought about just bulldozing the house and starting from scratch.
There is something about “sticks” that make food more desirable to my munchkins… a boring turkey sandwich becomes exciting and gourmet when I cut it into squares and stick a toothpick into each one. Juice is yummy in a glass, but freeze it on a stick so you can lick it?! SO MUCH BETTER… right? Candy… so fun to eat. Candy on a stick (i.e. A Lollipop)… a special treat. Thus, chicken served right on the skewers it was cooked on… MAGNIFICENT!!
I love when they get excited about their dinner before it enters their little mouths.
When we go to a Thai restaurant I pretty much know what I’m going to order before I walk in the door…
Two things happened this past week that nearly knocked me over, gave me great relief, and renewed my excitement for this little blog of mine.
What were those things you ask?
