Highlights from last month's menu

I've been really into trying new recipes. Many times I find that something is not quite right or that I forgot to make side dishes, haha thankfully Greg is patient with me. But, one meal that I have down pat is chicken tortilla soup. It has become one of my regular meals (Greg said it is one of his favorites ;). The Fish Tacos were gross, not sure what I did wrong there. The margherita pizza was pretty delicious, it is kind of hard to make tomaotes, fresh mozzarella and basil taste bad. If I were to do it again, I would use a different crust, it was a little thick for this type pizza. The steak quesadillas were okay, the steak was kind of chewey, but the suteed onions made up for it. I was thrilled to find this recipe for upsidedown chicken pot pie (it was on the back of the chicken flavor pasta side). It was so good, I am definitely going to make that again! The spicy bbq chicken turned out good in Greg's opinion (I didn't like it), I discovered that I am not a fan of Worcestershire sauce and probably won't use this recipe ever again.

So, we made it through August and September and we haven't gone hungry yet. Hopefully I keep improving my cooking skills and the enjoyment factor continues, too.

The adorable Kenzie Marie is 2!

Oh my dear little Kenzie Marie. She was so funny, she never stopped running and wanted nothing to do with the camera until we fed her cookies, that sure did the trick :) As I flipped through all the moments I captured of her, I couldn't stop smiling because her wide array of facial expressions is just simply adorable! Christa, thank you for letting me photograph your little girl. I am so grateful that I get to be a part of your lives. Happy 2nd Birthday McKenzie!!
