A watched pot

A watched pot may never boil, but, note to self:

if you are waiting for some onions to cook before you finish the rest of a recipe, you may want to watch your pot and your curious 4 year old.

I've taught G several times about kitchen safety, so I am glad he exercised caution whilst "helping." But you can tell he has been told not to work on the stove top without mommy's help by the look in the second picture:

That's right G, caught you red-handed. In this case, I'm very grateful his hands weren't literally red as a result of his "helping." I better keep a closer eye on this one.

R's home sick today with a fever and strep. I've been up the last couple of nights with him and as such, I am dragging a bit myself, so I've decided to take it easy and do some easy meals this week:

Tomato, Olive and Feta Pasta (inspired by my friend Jennifer B's recipe)
Asian Salmon Burgers, Sweet Potatoes and Soy Green Beans
Slow Cooker Jambalaya (for Mardi Gras, of course!)
Slow Cooker Italian Bean and Artichoke Soup
Indian Veggie Burgers (from Trader Joe's), Indian sides
Mama Mimi's Pizza Night--sometimes even the most ardent pizza maker needs a night off!

Have a sweet week-
