Domestic Doings

My goodness.... it has been awhile since I have updated the blog.  I always have the best of intentions every Summer, but then the reality of having my boys with me all day every day kicks in and I remember how busy Summer break always is.  That is okay though - - I love, love, love spending time with my boys.

I have been thinking of the blog, however, and have snapped a few photos of some of the domestic things I have managed to do over the last month, or so.

I promised I would try to share more of what I feed my family for dinner this summer.  This is one of our Summer favorites...

Chicken Fettuccine with toasted pine nuts and broccoli.  I will share the recipe for this delicious and simple dish soon.

Another favorite dinner for us is my favorite three packet roast with mashed potatoes and carrots.  I love this dish during the fall and winter because it is classic comfort food, but I also love it in the summer because I can make it in my slow cooker and avoid heating up my house.  Hopefully I will get around to sharing my favorite version of this recipe someday.

I love raspberries and this is one of my favorite summer treats.  Fresh raspberries over lightly sweetened fresh whipped cream.  Yum!!

I also made some of my homemade turkey sausage patties.  I love these and they are my husband's absolute favorite. I always make a big batch of these and put them in the freezer.  Then we can grab one or two, give them thirty seconds in the microwave, and we are good to go to add some healthy protein to our breakfasts. I will try to share the recipe for this sometime soon.

And since I know you can't get enough of my entry hook shelf, I will share it with you.  Oh wait - that is me that can't get enough.  Anyway, I spruced it up with some very simple 4th of July decor.

I also finished up the baptism quilt I made for my baby boy - who turned eight!  EIGHT!!!  How did that happen so fast?!?  I will share a more detailed post about this quilt soon.

Well, I  have promised to share a lot of things with you in this post.  I hope to get to them sooner, rather than later, but don't hold your breath until school starts.
