Happy Sunday!

It's been a really long week for all of us here at our house, and I for one, am looking forward to a nice, quiet #SundaySupper with my family tonight. I have spent hours in the kitchen this week, getting ready for the holiday's, posts and of course, cooking my children healthy, delicious meals. I have spent entirely too much time on the computer this week getting posts ready and working on upcoming projects while trying to juggle current projects and of course just trying to be a mom to five crazy teenagers. This week just needed to be over and I have thoroughly enjoyed my weekend thus far. Rest and relaxation. I hope you have too.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this....

I have a few friends, one in particular that I love to taunt with pictures of my food. haha I have spent the week texting pictures of food to a super good friend of mine. And he's on a diet. I'm such a bad friend. I figure I'm probably doing him a favor, by putting temptation in front of him, that he can't have, right? Right? Probably not, but it sounded good. At any rate, I'm trying to be nicer and not share food as much, but sometimes it's hard not to show it off when it looks as good as this does, and yep this picture made an appearance on his phone this week. Isn't it pretty?

Diet Friendly

The good news about this dish, is that a few substitutions and you have a diet friendly meal. Use Skim milk, sub the sausage for grilled chicken or even leave it out all together, use rice or a low carb pasta.

Anyway, it's freakin' good and my kids eat it, even the picky ones, so it's a favorite around here, and I was happy to be able to share it today for our Squashin' Winter #SundaySupper.
