Quinoa Pasta with Meatballs

Last night I was making everyone Spaghetti and Meatballs.  I have not made meatballs since the diet change 5 months ago.  I started searching for recipes online but they seem so complicated sometimes.  I remembered in the past I had made meatloaf with oatmeal instead of breadcrumbs.  So I decided to just make it simple.  (Sorry, I don’t measure.)

2lbs ground beef

2 eggs


bit of milk

Italian seasonings


garlic powder


Don’t they look good! 

I made quinoa pasta for the first time as well.  It was not bad at all.  Much better than the rice pasta!

Poor boy doesn't feel well :(

Yesterday, we had a very miserable little boy. 

He must have gotten water in his ears after a bath because he was really complaining.  He cried, complained, toss and turned on my lap til he fell asleep for maybe 10 min at a time.  There was absolutely nothing we could do to make him happy! 

Today thankfully he arrives in a much happier mood!

Been thinking…

Well, it’s been a long time.  I don’t know why I have been gone so long.  I seem to just not be in the mood to write.  It’s not just here either.  I rarely update anywhere online these days.  I spend a lot of time thinking..

oh I should blog that. 

Oh those pics would go great on the blog! 

But I don’t actually do it.  I think part of the problem is I compare my blog to some of the others I read.  They have fancy blogs with awesome contents.  They are terrific writers.  They get so many comments.  My blog can never be like that.. I am so boring!  My Grammar is awful!  Writing was my worse subject in school. 

One day I thought back to why I started a blog.   I blogged because Anna was growing so fast.  I wanted to share all the things she was doing and saying.  I shared things that I wanted to remember, things she could read as she got older.  That was what my blog was for.  The family.

It’s time to get back to that.  Now I have Ethan here a lot and he can say the cutest things (although don’t tell him that.  He hates being called cute.) and I am not writing about it!   It’s time to stop worrying about what others think of my blog and just blog for me (and my family of course).
