I also would like to add that on my days at home, I get a ton more done! I feel like I'm actually being the homemaker I'm supposed to be and capable of being. Catching up on laundry, cooking home cooked meals that include dessert! It may some weird to some, but it's what keeps me ticking, what I yearn to do, what I feel like I was made to do!
Without further ado, here's our dinner Saturday! I made Rachael Rays "Harvest Moon Macaroni". It's kind of become a favorite, and it's a SUPER easy way to add veggies to your diet, or your toddler's diet (or husband's) without them knowing. It's a butternut squash sauce with cheese (of course!) and macaroni.

And for dessert...... CHOCOLATE CHESS PIE!!!! We LOVE chocolate! And I'll share the recipe with you!
-1/4 cup of butter -pinch of salt
-2 squares of Baker's unsweet chocolate -1/2 cup of milk
-1 1/2 cups of sugar -2 eggs
-1 tablespoon of flour -1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1 unbaked frozen pie crust
First melt the butter and the chocolate in a small sauce pan.
|If this weren't unsweet, I'd be all over that pan.|
|This is just after it's mixed|
|After 6 minutes of beating. That time makes a HUGE difference. Makes the batter fluffy like pudding :0)|
|The pie will rise...|
|and then the pie will fall....|
