This is another recipe that I tried from the Rachel Ray magazine I picked up a few weeks ago.  I made it last week, and thought it could be better, so we tried it again this week!

This is a menu that we have pretty often.  (see here)

However, I decided to try something a little different with the Brussels sprouts the other night!  I really liked it because it seemed to make the Brussels sprouts a little less bitter than they can be otherwise.

I know, I know, everybody knows how to make chili, right?  Well, I’m trying to post something every day (haven’t done so well at that so far!) this month, so I’m running out of new recipes!  This is the way I pretty much always make chili 🙂

The other weekend, the girl had a volleyball clinic at school on Saturday morning.  After I took her, I came back and the man and the boy decided they wanted eggs for breakfast.

The boy wanted to help, so he pulled out his apron and we got to work.

He beat the eggs together for me so we could make the man an omelette.

He let me do the tough part with the pan, though!

Once the omelette was cooked through on one side, I flipped it over and we put in the fixin’s.  For this one, we used mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.

I let the boy put the cheese and pepperoni in, can you tell?

The man said it was the best omelette he’s ever had!

The girl told me that this dish is like breakfast, lunch and supper all in one because it was in layers 🙂

I picked up a Rachel Ray magazine the other day on my lunch break.  I used to read through those magazines all the time, but it had been a while.  I found quite a few recipes that look pretty good and that I can easily modify to our diet, but this one didn’t even need to be modified!

It’s called Roast Mushrooms and Kale over Mashed Sweet Potatoes – read on for the recipe!
