Dinner on the patio at Hamburger Harry's in Edmonds. Service was horrible, hamburgers were good and the sandbox for the kids was amazing.

Saisha's birthday dinner/James' night before pre-k dinner- Hot dogs, corn on the cob and watermelon

Week of August 27th, 2012

Pumpkin Enchiladas- I made a modified version of this recipe. For the sauce I used the same amount of water but one cup pumpkin, one cup corn salsa from Trader Joes, 1/4 cup black beans and the chili powder.

Dinner at Community Group- Jordan brought dinner this week and she made these amazing Cake Batter Rice Krispy Cupcakes. They were AMAZING. So bad for you. So good.

*Oven Fried Cheese Ravioli- Big thumbs up from the kids and hubby

Slow Cooker Ribs- as tender as always

Dinner at my sister's- she bought yummy brats from Double D Meats. If you live in Seattle and haven't been to this awesome butcher shop- go now! Their meat and prices are awesome.

Teriyaki Bowls with steamed broccoli. Soy-vay marinade.

My dad is in town so one night he made his famous spaghetti sauce.

*Whole Wheat Apple Scones- Not as amazing as these scones but still tasty and moist for whole wheat. I would make again.
