This was my first attempt at making empanadas. I think I need to keep working on it.

I only had to make dinner for my daughter and I. So, we had nachos topped with leftover fajita filling.

I love to make fajitas. They are so easy and so yummy!

We were planning to escape the drudgery and go on a date. But a sick child changed the plans to this.

Chicken noodle soup and beer bread

I've tried making beer bread from
scratch but it doesn't turn out very good for me so I stick with Tastefully Simple's.

Isn't that so beautiful? It's so good! I use sprite but sometimes when I'm in a pinch I use diet coke.

Sorry I disappeared again! For some reason I can't seem to remember to take pictures of our dinners!

I thought it would be fun to start doing a weekly post about my favorite kitchen tools. What do you think?
I LOVE my Pampered Chef Food Chopper. I use it every day. And as you can tell from the cracks it's been well loved in the 5 years I've had it.
