I’ve never been a huge fan of hummus. I admit; I have a completely irrational aversion to garbanzo beans. I’m not sure why or how this came to be, but I am certain I will never grow out of it. I’m a bit stubborn like that.
My family loves the winter, but living in the Northeast sometimes means cold and occasionally bone chilling temperatures. My husband works outside nearly all day. When he arrives home, thoroughly chilled to the core, there is little that hits the spot better than a hearty, piping hot bowl of soup.
I’m not sure that I have ever met a teenager who didn’t like pizza. My teens are no exception. While not a regular item on our meal menu, we do indulge in pizza occasionally. As a mom, I must admit that I do have a problem calling pizza a meal. There’s little to balance out the carbohydrate load, and any vegetables or meat that is added is minimal in amount or processed beyond recognition.
So today I decided to tackle this issue head on with my Sloppy Joe Pizza.
It is hard to believe that we are in the last few weeks of summer. Where did the time go?
Before I exchange the carefree days of summer for the more structured school days ahead, I am looking forward to a few more rounds of mini golf with the kids, some water gun fights in the yard, and as many outside get togethers as we can fit in!
