I’m Back!!

Sorry for the short hiatus. We’re still trying to get into the swing of things for fall around here. Lots going on. Soccer, church, sunday school, cherub choir, work…whew! Anyway, I made the best Sunday dinner this past week. Andy baked a smoked apple flavored pork loin and it had the best flavor…perfect for fall. DSC_2028

It was so tender and juicy.  The boys gobbled it up.  And I actually ate some too…being the non meat eater of the family I think that says a lot. 

I cooked some fresh cut green beans to go with it.  I boiled them in water for 15 minutes and I added some chopped ham for flavor.  I admit I mixed in a bit of butter at the end.  Perfection!

A no sunday dinner is complete without potatoes, right?  I made my red parsley potatoes.  Sometimes I add some garlic and a bit of sugar to these, but Sunday’s were just salt and pepper, parsley and butter.  Yum!

Golden and delicious! 

I had to make a special dinner for my little guy since he played his first ever soccer game.  He did so well…he even scored a goal…for the other team, but that’s okay!  His reaction was priceless.  He ran off the field, gave me a high five and a big hug.  I’ll never forget it!   He was so proud…and so was I.

He was all smiles the entire game!

He even flirted with the competition!

GO GREEN has a whole new meaning to me now!  🙂  As a special treat I made his favorite for dessert…peanut blossoms.

They sure didn’t last long in our house.  Next time, I need to make a double batch!

And you know fall is coming when our Halloween costumes start to arrive.  Here’s a preview!  Can you guess what this little pup is going to be?
