My baby girl turned 10 years old.
- We celebrated by going to Greenville for the zoo and some other fun.
- We also enjoyed dinner with family and a few of her friends back here in Asheville.
There was lots of cooking, duh of course.
And lastly, just a whole lot of schoolwork.
I probably shouldn't put schoolwork as a highlight, but hey I am in school and that is kind of awesome. Today, feeling the effects of lots of school and the 36 hours I worked last week, my energy was pretty darn low by the time the kids got home. There was a lot of laziness going on until about 7:30pm, when I realized I better get dinner going. We typically like to get the kids in bed by 8, so that we can actually get them up in the morning. I am pretty sure they are both nightowls. Anyway, I had to figure out a quick dinner and I was kind of craving breakfast for dinner...especially eggs. So, I whipped up a yummy frittata and served it with a salad. It was a hit with everyone and if my cast iron pan were larger, there would have been second or even third helpings for the kids.
I made it with vegan chorizo, garlic, onion, baby bellas, spinach, 4 whole eggs & 3 egg whites, grated sharp cheddar cheese, and just some salt and pepper for seasoning.
"Mmmmmm Mommy that looks good, stop taking pictures so that I can eat now."

I also bought this book today at my local food co-op. It is chock full of pie goodness and I think I may have mentioned in the past that I do believe everything should be in pie form. The recipes look so good and the first one I am going to make is the Chocolate Mint Pie. I also am a fan of Ashley English and her beautiful homesteading ways...and she happens to live here in/around Asheville. I am always for supporting local people and I can't wait to try many recipes from this book. Ok off to fold some more laundry.
