Serendipitous Gnocchi

A serendipitous moment at the West Side Market this weekend. Strolling the produce and food stands, SPH pointed out:

How often do you even see Sweet Pea Gnocchi in your market? And next to the pumpkin? I'd venture to guess, um, never.

There was so much good food at the WSM, a mini-vacation from the ordinary:

Homemade dried fruit, including kiwi. Love it.

The boys are back at school this morning after Spring Break. It feels good to fall back into our weekly routine, and for them both to have a bit of a break from each other. R and G love each other to pieces, but even the closest of siblings need some time apart.

Our weather is different this week, more seasonable, instead of the mid-80s that graced most of last week. I'll be making a batch of chili this week, wondering if it will be until the fall that we enjoy it again.

Our weekly meal plan:

Greek Orzo Pasta Salad, Pineapple
Slow Cooker White Chili (chicken-less for me), Salad
Grilled Portabella Burgers, Roasted Cauliflower, Baked Beans (sans bacon for me)
Spring Risotto, Kiwi
Taqueria Asada Tacos(meat for the boys, mushroom or tofu for me), Refried Beans, Rice

Have a sweet week,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
