It’s been a busy week! Jack turned in his first book report yesterday, which involved choosing a fairy tale, writing a report, illustrating the story, dressing up in costume and delivering an oral report. Whew.
Check out my little Puss in Boots:
In case you can’t tell, costumes are NOT my thing. Jack was unimpressed. I honestly think he expected me to turn him into a real cat. On a similar note, Isla has requested a “broom that really flies” to accessorize her Halloween costume… so I’ll get right on that.
Another recipe revisit this week! A month or so ago I made the easiest meal ever: browned a pound of ground turkey and stirred in a jar of Trader Joe’s Cowboy Salsa. I made that again this week, but this time I added a can of (drained) diced fire-roasted tomatoes. We had it over roasted sweet potatoes and topped with sour cream, cheese and these new sweet & spicy jalapeno slices (from TJ’s- I’m addicted).
Such an easy meal but really filling and delicious. The salsa definitely has a kick to it so this probably would have been too spicy for the kids. It would be great over rice/cauli rice as well.
(You can spot another batch of my Instant Pot mac and cheese lurking back there. We’re all addicted.)
Yay yay, tomorrow’s Friday!
