|Cheesy Broccoli and chicken Alfredo-surprisingly healthy and it even passed the "Ryan test".|
|CSA fresh corn on the cob and cauliflower and macaroni and cheese. Oh so cheesy and oh so good! Again, it passed the Ryan test...I must be doing well recently!|
|Quiche- Ryan's first quiche and he liked it! I used corn and kale in mine. Of course you can't forget the cheese, so we had that as well!|
|A rare glimpse of the hungry man before dinner and before his food has disappeared.|
|Eggplant Parmesan and low fat buttered corn. Definitely a quick meal, but oh so delicious!|
|One of the quickest and healthiest meals in awhile- a large salad, fresh from the CSA farm and grilled chicken with some low fat, low calorie dressing. Definitely filling and oh so yummy!|
|Tilapia with roasted veggies. Light, but a little something different than the normal meat and potatoes kind of meal.|
|Another view of the Caramel Apple Green Apple Cupcakes.|
|Homemade with chunky tomatoes for sauce, green peppers, arugula, more tomatoes, cheese and pepperoni under all of that as well. Was very good and very veggie loaded!|
|"Cookies" I made from frozen pie dough I got from the store. I took decorations along to the business fair and let kids decorate them while their parents shopped.|
I've also been working on some of my baking and have found a great resource for this...it's a company called Icing Smiles Inc, which is a non-profit organization that provides birthday and special event cakes for children and their siblings/family who has major medical concerns that often prevent them from having a cake or celebration. I would create and donate the cake for these children and would get more experience in the process. We'll see what this turns into, but I'm definitely looking forward to my first cake for these kids. They deserve it!Along with cakes, I'm also part of the "cookie team" which creates cookies based on a theme and sends them to kids who may need a little pick me up. November's theme is smiley faces and pumpkins. We'll see what I come up with for those!
I'm also working on expanding my baking to church functions and to try to help others and benefit them. I know I am looking forward to the holidays to get my creativity moving and seeing what I can come up with! You never know where I'll come up with ideas and when you'll see some goodies showing up! See you there!
