Chicken Thighs with Potato, Tomato and Lemon

Josilin loved this chicken.  Her words after the first bite were, "that is amazing chicken."  Followed by, "I call all leftovers to be sent on my lunch.  No seriously, no one is eating this but me.  This is like, serve it on my birthday good."  Not bad for a meal that was made almost entirely with ingredients laying around the kitchen.  In fact, I never would have predicted this would be made multiple times or grace the blog.

Roasted Beet & Spinach Pesto Cheesy Melt

For someone who doesn't love them, there are quite a few sandwiches on this site.  Don's favourite food in the world is a sandwich and I try to keep things interesting with various veggie combinations.  Previously I would have told you my favourite is the Roasted Zucchini with Lemongrass Aioli.  He would have said his favourite is the Southwest Sandwich .  My friend Lori still talks about the time we carpooled to hockey and I brought along my Beet and Grapefruit Sandwich to enjoy.  As their family enjoyed subs from a drive thru, she threatened that she might just rip that sandwich right out of my hands!  All this to say, I thought I had peaked in my sandwich creations.  I mean, could I really find a better sandwich than those we already loved?

Blueberry Whole Wheat Muffin

It's just the kids and I home this week in Kale Eats kitchen.  Don is off visiting relatives in another province for a much needed family reunion.  We would have loved to all go on this trip, but between a full calendar and the cost of a family of four to travel, it was the best decision at the time.

Thai Charred Corn & Coconut Soup

We've had this soup three times in the last few weeks.  The fresh local corn screams summer time while the warm soup leans us toward fall.  Jos has been packing it on her lunch at school too.  Since it's only the second week of school, I'm going to do my best not to complain about packing kids lunches here.  Honestly, although I love all things food, even I tire of creating food that will survive a school day and be quickly consumed.

Eggplant, Harissa & Herb Gremolata Sandwich

It's back to the grind this week in Kale Eats kitchen.  Back to school, work and the rink means a lot of busy days.  Was it a busy in your home too? Did you survive it?  No matter how prepared I am, the hectic nature of September always catches me off guard.  Suddenly we are up earlier, filling out forms, sharpening skates and meeting teachers.  It will be a challenge to make quiet moments in our schedule this fall but I am committed to making it happen.
