|This is a super quick dinner perfect for when the heat hits outside. In the summer I usually brown the ground beef or chicken in the morning and we eat the salad cold. This is a favorite in our house and also very budget friendly.|

|This is a scarf I started knitting last November. At the time I was super motivated and had just finished a super simple plain scarf. My first knitting project since I was my daughters age.|

This is my husbands all time favorite dessert! His grandmother had large amounts of rhubarb that grew in the yard growing up and he would go out and pick stocks, dip it in sugar and eat it! He has been working hard at work and putting long hours in so as a surprise I baked him this baby as a celebration to the start of his vacation! I love him a lot!

I cook as much from scratch as possible because this was how I was raised by Granny. We never had hamburger helper or Kraft mac and cheese. She was one of the most wonderful/kind people I ever new.
She raised me for about 11years. In that time we never had piles of laundry (one area I fall way short), breakfast, lunch and dinner where made from scratch with the best ingredients. I remember I ate a puffed pancake every morning for breakfast for 3/4 of an entire year, my Grandfather had oatmeal with raisins and my Dad would come home from the Navy on the weekends and eat a bacon and scrambled egg sandwich. She was often times a short order cook for breakfast, what you felt like she would make, even for my fathers friends who might drive up for the weekend and sleep on our couch. On occasion I would eat pancakes with homemade blueberry sauce. She grew the berries herself and froze them. We always had a nice lunch, I rarely ate school lunch and when I did it was because I had asked. Dinners where always to die for! As a mother now I look back and have no idea how she did it all. My laundry piles up, there are toys scattered around my house ( mainly lego's from my youngest) and my dinners might only be as complicated once or twice a week but I still thrive to supply my kids with as much of the values she had blessed me with..
We never eat in the living, other then possibly once a year with a pizza night and a movie. My children never eat alone and I try as much as possible to feed my children nutritious home cooked meals with no additional junk added to it.My children will try anything and will eat anything as long as it taste good. They love vegetables and have well developed palates. This is all due my Granny taking the time to raise me in this manner. So this meal is one of those meals without a lot of fuss but a heck of alot better then chicken helper...lol..We enjoy this alot and I hope you will too!
