What's for Dinner?

Joining Simcha in all things supper for this week.


Homemade deep dish pizzas, drool


Our local Knights of Columbus had a family picnic so all I had to do was make salsa.  Yay, K of C!


Chili with browned beef chunks, ground beef, chorizo, diced and crushed tomatoes, onions, spices and black beans. It's the perfect food.


Copycat Chick Fil A nuggets and sauce with crudité (that's just fancy talk for carrots and celery sticks). I forgot to take a photo and by the time I remembered every last nugget was gone.


Leftover chili (I added another can of tomatoes and another can of beans just to be sure)


Chinese sticky ribs (from Cook's Country 2007) and stir-fried broccoli.


Mama loves her Papa Murphy's take and bake pizza.  We had gourmet vegetarian and cheese pizza.

{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}


Pretty September sunrise


Happy climbing boy at the playground


Three of my girls and a friend ready for SLC Comic-con 2015

Angela made her costume.  I was so impressed, I'm handing over sewing duties to her.  She and her sisters figured out how to sew the cloak and modify and sew the bodice.  She purchased her wig, boots, and leggings to round out her costume as Tauriel from The Hobbit movies.

Nadja made her own costume, too.  She used a heat gun to mold sheets of foam rubber to her body and then used velcro to attach the pieces to a black underlayer.  She purchased a cheap helmet and painted everything to match, along with distressing to make it look like she's been through galactic battles. In case you are as Star Wars illiterate as I am, she went as a Mandalorian bounty hunter after the model of Boba Fett.

Katerina went as Honey Senpai from some anime show I've never seen.  She put her costume together using things around the house and purchased the pink bunny online.


Katerina has been complaining of blurriness, eye fatigue and headaches for a couple months.  I took her to have her eyes examined, and sure enough she does indeed need glasses for at least reading and watching video.
