What a weekend! SPH returned home late Friday from his week long trip to Dallas. Let me tell you, any weekend, no matter what happens, is sweet after flying solo for a week with little ones. I have such respect and awe for single parents.
Saturday we headed out to the country for a little:
and a little
We picked about G's weight in apples, and I realized that our eyes may have been bigger than my desire to peel all of the apples we now have in our kitchen.
Sunday was a big day! R and G's new baby cousin sweet baby boy I was born. Of 8 grandkids on this side of the family, we now have 7 boys! I can't wait to see this little pumpkin and give him some love...
And on the home front, R scored his first soccer goal at his game on Sunday afternoon! To celebrate, we cooked him up one of his favorites, fried okra. But instead of the traditional fried okra, we kicked it up new school style and fried them like this:
Very tasty, although I seem to recall the traditional fried okra tasting quite nice too.
A busy weekend, a busier week to come.
Grilled Steaks, Fried Okra, Roasted Tomatoes, Pistachio and Lemon Couscous
Tofu and Broccoli Stirfry with Brown Rice
Slow Cooker Moo Shu Pork (I can't *wait* to try this one...I'll share if it is yummy)
Indian Chicken Burgers and Roast Zucchini
Some sort of Soup...haven't decided yet!
Oh, and a couple of you emailed me for the Tandoori Chicken Slow Cooker recipe. Sadly, this recipe wasn't quite up to the SPC standard, so I will try, try again to seek out something a little tastier to share.
Have a great week all-
