Roasted Veggies

I made roasted veggies the other day. I super loved it. The veggies turned out really good. My husband even liked it. I roasted some zucchini squash, asparagus and broccoli. They are green! (lol) Next time I will add some carrots. I love cooking for my family. I get so inspired when I cook for them. Next week, I'm going to roast some eggplants, artichokes, bell peppers and broccoli and then toss these altogether with fresh angel hair pasta and add a little bit salt and pepper and Parmesan cheese. There you go!

Mountain Cabin

Guest post from: Kent Lara

I love our mountain cabin. It’s so nice to have somewhere to go that’s just a getaway – there’s nothing to do there but be with the family and relax and that’s just the way I like it. My husband talked for a while about putting in a satellite dish but I don’t want to take away from our family game night or the time we spend just chatting by the fire. I relinquished the right to veto internet service West Virginiaproviders since he sometimes has to work up there and one computer is enough to really make me feel like I’m losing my family to technology sometimes. I love that we’ve got a place to go and just be together but I wish the rest of my family took it as seriously as I do sometimes. I just don’t know what it is about being the mom that makes you feel the need to bond everyone together but I sure wish I could figure out a way to do a better job of it!

Vegetables chips

I got vegetables chips instead of potato chips the other day at the store. Oh, I love these chips. They are way better and healthier than those greasy potato chips. The pack contains, green beans, squash, taro roots, and sweet potatoes. I also got some roasted okras. They were pretty good. I I like it when you can find some snacks like these. They are healthy!

The zoo

This photo was taken at the zoo a couple of weeks ago. We went to the zoo to celebrate my baby boy’s first birthday. We all had fun!
