A mom of all boys...the joys and the challenges of being the only woman in the bunch!

And.... it's August.
We just returned from a short vacation... and it was so much fun. It's been years since we got away as a family, and it was wonderful. How could it not be awesome, when we got to see sights like this one???
So we got home on Friday, and Saturday I did some cooking. I finally made the Eggplant Rollatini, which we'll have this week. (It looked and smelled yummy!) I also made a big batch of homemade macaroni and cheese, and pureed some butternut squash from the garden to 'hide' in there. Ds#3 ate some this weekend, and I froze the rest. Gotta get those veggies in my boy however I can!
So things may get switched around a little this week, because I know we will have a couple of occasions to get together with friends, but here's the plan:
Sunday~ Beef short ribs in the crockpot, green beans, mac'n'cheese for ds#3, low-carb linguine for hubs. Zucchini brownies for dessert (we were given the largest zucchini I've ever seen. Really.)
Tuesday~ Chicken breasts in mushroom gravy, whole wheat egg noodles, green beans, corn on the cob. (It's National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, so that's my plan for a special dessert!!)
Wednesday~ Chef's salads
