In what could possibly be my favorite week of the year, I'm going to be cooking some kid-friendly, simple meals.
Forget about Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, and Groundhog Day, this is the week that I live for. That one week where the garden takes a backseat, the laundry can pile up and flow out of the baskets, the painting projects and lawn care are forgotten, and the rocking chair becomes my favorite piece of furniture in the house.
My eldest daughter, Kelsie, and her two beautiful babies are coming to visit!
This is my BLISS.

Out to dinner for our last night
Madison, almost 3, LOVES blueberries. Last summer during her visit, Poppa and Nana took her to the blueberry fields at Sauvie Island where we picked a wagon full of berries. Madison is smart. And she remembers everything.
Guess where we'll be heading this week?
TOTAL AND COMPLETE BLISS.
