for starters, I would like to ask you all to please pray for this sweet family. They have two boys named Griffin and Logan and both have been diagnosed with a fatal genetic disease called Alpers Syndrome. You can read more about it here. THIS FAMILY NEEDS OUR PRAYERS! Can you imagine losing two children? I cannot. I have cried like a baby all morning every time I think about this story. This is when faith is tested. Please pass this on and let everyone you know about this family!!! Ask them ALL to pray! Let's show them how much we love them and COVER them in prayer.

But I still try and cook healthy and be conscious of fat and calories. Sometimes this goes OUT the window when dessert and wine are involved. Ha. I try limit both of those. Some nights I succeed better than others!

I try my best to not drink during the week. Sometimes I have a half a glass of wine, and that is it. But some nights my kids are making me lose my flipping mind, fighting over toys and busting lips, and arguing, and.... its a tad more. As in, like, half a bottle. Or two. I kid, I kid. But you get my drift...
Okay, so here are some regulars on Tuesday thru Sunday!
For sides, I do LOTS of steamed veggies!! Don't have a steamer? BUY ONE! They are a great investment, under $50 for a top of the line model, and they also can make brown rice! There is NO clean up! I repeat. No cleanup=Come to mama.
I have this one:
Also, I am IN LOVE with this salad dressing;
