Brussels Sprouts Monday

Pippin: What about breakfast?
Aragorn: You've already had it.
Pippin: We've had one, yes. What about second breakfast?
[Aragorn turns and walks off in disgust]
Merry: I don't think he knows about second breakfast, Pip.
Pippin: What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn't he?
Merry: I wouldn't count on it.

That, my friends, is what my baby thinks every day.

I missed the weekly home blessing for Monday, due to a late start, so that will be done on Tuesday. This week, we are in Zone 1, which is the Entry, Porch and Dining room. Since I only have the entry way, this is where I will be focused. Lots of stairs and too many shoes.

Dinner was so amazing, and of course I forgot to take a picture. Due to a sale, I had extra Kielbasa, which can be a tough meat to pair with other flavors. I found Kielbasa with Brussels Sprouts in Mustard Cream Sauce and it was soooo good!!! Definitely a keeper. Turns out that brussels sprouts are just like little tiny cabbages, and that's what they taste like, who knew?

To increase our snack options for the week, I decided to make cookies for the first time in a long time. I made chocolate chip cookies and added Craisins for some punch. They turned out pretty good, even though my oven runs too hot. I finally used my new stacking cooling racks which helped me save space.
