No Schedule ~ Hubby Funny

The sunrise was beautiful for the kid's first day back to school.  Gorgeous pinks and blues everywhere.  

Yesterday was an easy dinner.  I simply cooked up pinto beans with onions, then mashed them.  We enjoyed bean burritos with all the toppings.  Some ate it in a bowl, taco salad style.  I do try to serve some sort of bean once a week, and now I am on the hunt for salmon recipes that my kids will eat.  We need more fish in our diet. 

I had exactly one cup of organic red lentils, so I mixed up a bowl of red lentil hummus.  Even my kids will eat this.  It's not as "garlicy" as the hummus I make with chickpeas.  However, I do love both.  So healthy too.  This time I mixed the parsley right into it.  We are definitely getting enough fiber in our diet.

I'm kind of in a lazy mode (simply put, in no rush, and no schedule) today, so laundry is first.  It's warm enough to put it on the line today.  I need some fresh air anyway.  I'm still congested, and cannot wait for my elderberry elixir to be ready.

I'm digging out my crafting journal today too.  I have some new ideas to jot down.

Are you writing in a journal today?

"See this?" asked Hubby.

(I look at his phone)

"I do this (took a photo of the part number for the corn/pellet burner), and boom, a part pops out for me."

"Who do you think you are?" I asked.  "George Jetsen?"

. . . men and their electronics, sigh.

We like salmon patties/cakes around here. It allows me to use my stores and have dinner on the table quickly.

Men and their toys crack me up! I have been hankerin' for some beans and cornbread...

I made a crock pot full of veggie chili last night, with cornbread, and salad. I also make salmon patties, cheap and healthy!

Cant wait to try your hummis recipe. I made black bean enchiladas the other night. Good to eat beans, now to convince the hubby of that!

Thanks ladies, salmon patties are on my grocery list now.
