Sarah had already started with the "I'm bored!" and "What am I going to do this summer?" I thought about some of the things that she likes to do and suggested that she help plan meals and cook once in awhile. She grabbed the latest Rachel Ray cookbook that her grandparents had given her and picked out some recipes to start with. The other night she made prosciutto paninis with roasted peppers and grilled romaine with Caesar dressing. Yum! It was so good. The brownie mess was not her fault. Even I know that brownies don't bake at 425° for 22 minutes. What's up with that Rachel? They were fluffernutter ones that you put peanut butter chips in the mix, bake it, then add mini marshmallows for the last few minutes. I let them bake longer, but they still were a goopy mess in the middle. We ate the edges of course. You would too! Tonight she's making something that her brother will eat. Chicken and penne. I'm going to try this salad recipe from Home Made Originals blog, with broccoli from the garden!
