Sunday Night Dinner – Pork Roast and Ice Cream Floats

It’s always great to end the weekend with Jess and Glen.  It’s so fantastic that our boys are growing up together and the adults get to stay connected.  Sunday night dinners rock.  With the holiday season upon us and Thanksgiving on Thursday I am reflecting on what I’m thankful for. […]

Quick Moroccan Chicken, CSA Style
