Tonight Melissa was hard at work, wrapping up Violet’s gifts and making her a homemade Mint Chocolate Chip and Oreo Ice Cream Cake, for our little family celebration tomorrow. Her big celebration will happen next week with a bunch of her friends from school.

With Melissa back at work I find dinner prep resting on just me. Finding a variety of food that the kids will eat can be a bit of a challenge. Tonight we had BBQ pork chops with a side of pasta and veggie (peas and carrots(. They both seemed to enjoy it, though Violet wanted more pasta than pork chops.
One of Jacob’s favourite breakfasts is a Sausage on an English Muffin. He loves when Melissa makes it for him, but this morning we changed things up. He made it for himself It was fun watching as he realized how simple cooking really is. I wonder what the next thing we’ll tackle together in the kitchen.
A few weeks ago I tweeted out a picture of Violet at Hockey practice, and I was tweeted back by Panago Pizza, with a Random Act of Pizza. At the time I had never heard of Panago, and wasn’t sure what a Random Act of Pizza was. It was about a week before it arrived. A free Medium pizza, so tonight I headed up to the closest Panago pizza store to give them a try. They Pizza was delicious, though I did have one problem when I went to pick it up, they have so many delicious looking pizzas I didn’t know what to order. I will definitely be ordering from them again.
Tonight I came home to find that Jacob had eaten at his Nan’s house but Violet had slept through dinner. So after pondering what to make for the two of us, I fired up the barbecue and through on some Hotdogs for her and a couple burgers for me. My goal this winter is to barbeque at least once a month, part of me would like to try for once a week.
Today was Halloween and boy did the kids have fun. Usually I have pictures of them in their costumes for my POD, but this year, with the weather so lousy I decided to use a picture of the candy they got. Usually it would have been sorted by now, but after a long night trick or treating nobody was up to that.
Tonight I came home from work to an empty house, I don’t remember the last time that happened. The kids were off on an adventure with their Nan, and Melissa’s hadn’t returned from her afternoon appointment. So it was just me and Ruby for dinner. Ruby had her usual dog food, but I wanted something different. So I made myself a steak stir fry. I don’t do a lot of cooking, but it’s nice to know that I can more than just BBQ.
