A Whole Lot of Cooking

My Mom and Aunt Tanya came to visit this past Sunday. They brought us tons of peaches.  We made peach cobbler one day, cooked up peaches to freeze for later on another day, and today we made three homemade peach pies.  So yummy!
For Paul's birthday Adam brought him home lunch from Carl's Junior.  He got the sodas from Jack's though because they were cheaper. :)  That's my boy!
Paul is loving home school, but I will save that for another post.  Here he is making bread by painting the egg wash on it.
Our garden is still producing tomatoes and ever since watching Fried Green Tomatoes we have all wanted to try making them.  Today Anna talked me into it.
They came out great!  Who knew they were so good!  We will definitely be making these again. Here is the recipe.
Nolan is still running a fever.  Nothing else, but the fever is around 103.  I feel bad for my little guy but he has definitely attached during this time.  He is such a cuddle bug right now because he is not feeling well.
Hope he feels better soon.

  2. It's awful to think that illness helps them attach, isn't it?? Aidan and I bnded BIG TIME when he had RSV during his first winter home. Poor little guy slept in my arms while I gave him nebulizer treatments every two hours! Also awful to say, I kind of miss snuggling like that with him. . .Hope Nolan gets better soon!

  3. I hope Nolan feels better soon. He must be miserable. Hopefully he'll sleep.

    No matter where we eat at the food court, there is one place we always get the soda at because it's just much less expensive.

  4. I love that you are teaching all your kids to cook! The tomatoes look great. I had them in Savannah a few years ago and they were delicious. Hope Nolan feels better soon. You and your husband are doing an amazing job raising your children :)

  5. We're on opposite ends of the country, but the same fever seems to be going around here as well. No symptoms but feverish kids. Most seem to get over it within a day or two, but I have a friend whose granddaughter ended up taking a low-dose of antibiotic after the fever had been going on for a week. The doctors didn't know what she had, but the fever immediately went away after she took the antibiotic.

  6. If you like lemon, Tomato Lemon Marmalade is so good I've been known to eat it with a spoon instead of spreading it on bread. Here's the recipe link: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/22/dining/227arex.html

    So sorry that Nolan is still sick, but the attachment time is a plus for you both.

  7. Its amazing just how different our country is depending where you live; Bama in my case. We eat green tomatoes almost three times a week. To make them healthier we roast them with a little olive oil and salt and only fry them on special occasions. You ought to try it. Glad all is well.
