Also, a bit of a confession here. Because my kids could not possibly care less about smoked salmon and kelp pickles. It's really not like I can pretend that it's all for them. I've let them watch waaaaay too much TV, told Porter it was quiet no talking time when he was just asking me for the definition of new words, saw Molly drawing all over herself with a marker and looked the other way, gave them a huge bowl of Pirate's Booty right before dinner, and made several really, really empty threats. I think I need to figure out a way to involve them instead of just trying to keep them out of my hair. Sigh.
I'm Cooking: The other day I made this homemade sloppy joe recipe. It was great! And easy. And my kids seriously love them some sloppy joes.
