As for the rest of the week there are several new recipes I want to try! Most of them are from blogs that I subscribe to :)
Cauliflower Curry from The Way the Cookie Crumbles
Lime Coconut Cheesecake from Our Best Bites
I need to use up an old baguette (bread crumbs), so I was thinking maybe an easy chicken parm with whole wheat pasta? I would just throw this one together, no recipe needed.
Blueberry Crumb bars from Annie's Eats (We made the peach ones last week! SO GOOD)
Apple Pie from Deb Spalding, a fellow 360er who gave our pie tutorial!
I know I will not get all of these desserts made but I am thinking I will definitely get the apple pie made. My Grandma picked some apples for me a few weeks back that I still have not used! YIKES. I hope they are still good because I was going to make her mini apple pies in my large cupcake pan... Or I guess I could just go for the full pie since my Aunt Marian will be in town. I know that between, Granny & Grandpa, Mom & Dad, Me & PJ and Marian this pie will get eaten! That is what I will do :)
So that is all on my week for now! Have a great Tuesday :)

The second romper i just inherited from my sister. Its a denim one. A little dressier, if you can even call a romper dressy! haha I wore it for the first time last Sunday. I threw a green cardigan over it and put on an antique gold broach (I believe my great grandmothers on my mom's side) and yes I did wear it to breakfast and church :) Along with my 2 most used accessories, the diaper bag and my coffee mug! Here are a few pics out front before heading to breakfast at Einstein Bros with the fam.

This is a medium sized tomato, even though it looks like a grape tomato in this pic. Its actually the perfect size in my book! Its like a mix between grape & Roma.
This one looked like a little pumpkin! Like the ones that are used for table decor during the fall... Seriously SO CUTE! I am going to slice it up to go with some mozzarella for lunch today.

I can not believe how time flies. I remember the first time we went to the Prairie Village pool and Brods just sat in between my legs content to sit and watch. Boy have things changed! He was wanting to crawl all over the baby pool, Chase his little fish toys, stand up, splash around. You name it and he was up for it yesterday!
It was a great Sunday! Hope everyone has a wonderful week :)

And of course for the main event of the evening... wonderful wonderful wonderful smoked brisket!
I unfortunately did not get pics of the dessert, but it was so yummy. We had 2 options, homemade peach pie, or homemade chocolate chip cookie bars each served a'la mode with homemade vanilla ice cream!
What a delectable evening :)

The pictures do not quite do it justice but there were shades or pink and orange. On the drive in the Western Auto sign was backlit by the sun, it was a wonderful greeting to the crossroads this morning. I had to try and snap a pic with my phone :)
Happy Friday Friends!

He was such a happy boy eating his macaroni and cheese dinner! We are going to do a big grocery store run this weekend so I plan to stock up on Gerber as well as some new finger foods! He has not had any yet because he has a sensitive gag reflex but we are going to persevere through that and keep on trying! :)
