Every kid knows that summer really ends when the school bell rings and it is time to go back to school, but on this last day of official summer, I am already thinking autumn. Did you check out the recipe for Braised Red Cabbage last week on familyeducation.com? Hint, it would make a fabulous side to your Oktoberfest dinner next month:
We've been busy at chez Sweet Pea, but settling into our busy autumn, er laaaaate summer nicely. Poor G though, almost every day I have to wake him up from his afternoon nap to pick R up from kindergarten. I mean, could he look more sleepy without actually being asleep?
Ah, the hardships of being a second child.
With autumn and the cooler weather arriving soon, I am ready to crack out my slow cooker more often. I am on the hunt for some good slow cooker recipes, so if you have a winner, be sure to leave it in the comments.
Oh, and our meals for the week:
Fish tacos, avocado, homemade salsa and mango
Pasta Carbonara and broccoli
Chicken Tandoori, roasted Indian eggplant and chickpeas
Slow Cooker Italian Bean and Artichoke Soup
Happy Fall All-
