KC at Three {PHFR}


He is our third son, our last child (unfortunately), our small family's biggest blessing.  KC will turn four in May.  Today I felt like capturing his three-ness in this week's PHFR.  In the above photo, I caught him doing what he does best ~ playing by himself.  As we move throughout our days at home, side by side, I in the kitchen, he in the living room, I will often overhear him making up stories for his beloved trains and cars, carrying on hilarious conversations between Batman and Spiderman, or battling his Ninjagos with full battle sound effects.  His brothers taught him so well.


Just last week my husband's friend said he has never seen KC when he didn't have a smile on his face.  While that isn't always the case, 99.9% of the time he is really happy.  He has brought so much laughter into our lives with his funny vocabulary ~ Motas for Thomas, Beecy for Percy, Mac'n for macaroni and cheese, bassik for basketball.  He is also great with  making up numbers like fivety-thirty and eleventy sixty.  We will miss his lispy "yes" someday but for now he makes all around him enjoy life just because he is little.  RW nicknamed him "Cutesy" and whenever he calls KC cutesy he replies adamantly, "I am NOT cutesy!"  to which we all dissolve into giggles.


Yesterday while getting his haircut, I noticed his Crocs were two different colors.  He did this on purpose.    Choose your battles, right?  This morning for breakfast, I found him standing on a stool putting a frozen chicken patty into the microwave and trying to decide which button to push to get it started.  He already had the ketchup out on the table!  Now if I can only teach him how to make coffee...

KC was a very chubby breastfed baby who would probably still be nursing today if I hadn't cut him off when he was nearing 2 1/2!

His favorite animal is a shark and his Uncle's lemon shark (named Sharky by KC) both thrills him and terrifies him when we visit their house.

KC is our best sleeper ~ in the van, on the sofa, in front of the computer, even at the dinner table, when he is tired he needs.  his.  sleep.  right.  now.

KC loves when we take self-portraits on my phone but he insists they all be in black and white.
  This one's for you KC, with all our love.

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Peaceful Snow Day

Yesterday we had the most lovely snow day. The woods were simply begging us to come and explore. We had new trails to find and secret passageways and hideouts. Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God. George Washington Carver There were tracks to follow. And tracks to make. Occasionally, the wind blew mini blizzards of snow around us. And then the sun returned and the sky gleamed blue. The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. Ralph Waldo Emerson There were hints of Spring. And reminders of winter. We made wonderful memories. And then, there were the snowy camellias. I got a little swept away by their color and beauty. I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. e.e. cummings

Tuna and Lentil Salad {Menu Plan Monday}

This hardly constitutes a recipe since it is mostly dump and stir but I  must  share it here because I love it so much.  The tangy vinegar mixed with spicy onions and creamy lentils makes my perfect in-a-rush lunch.  I usually just eat it right out of the bowl but it is also nice on a bed of red leaf lettuce.  It is also perfect for meatless Friday meals during the Lenten season just double the amounts. INGREDIENTS One can lentils , rinsed and drained 1 can tuna, packed in olive oil, undrained 1/4 onion, diced I prefer red onion) 1/4 cup red wine vinegar kosher salt PROCESS In a medium mixing bowl, stir all ingredients together.  I usually add more vinegar as it is quickly soaked up by the lentils. Serve over lettuce, on crackers or simply eat out of the bowl! ******* The March 2012 issue of Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine, entitled The Budget Issue, was really inspiring me over the weekend so I plan to make several new recipes from
