End of Season

My heart is breaking this morning for the residents of Moore, Oklahoma and surrounding towns hit by tornadoes during the past couple of days. Thank goodness, Tony's family and our friends in Oklahoma are safe and sound, but many people are not. If you would like to donate $10 to Red Cross relief efforts, please text REDCROSS to 90999.

Jackson's school year is nearly over, and his after-school soccer lessons came to an end this week. After practice, Coach gathered the kids around for one last time and told them how much fun he had with them all season. 

Jackson showing off his medal. Look at those little red cheeks! He plays hard! A teammate's mama brought chocolate-covered frozen bananas for a little celebration.

I'm finishing up testing for Tami and Celine's finger foods cookbook. Only a couple more recipes to try. Here are some recent testers.

Moroccan Snack Bars, made with couscous and roasted cauliflower, and topped with slivered almonds. Think of them as savory, boldly-spiced brownies.

Jerk Tempeh Sticks - tempeh is marinated in a rich, not-too-hot jerk sauce, then grilled with red peppers, onions and pineapple. The jerk marinade was so amazing, I used the leftover as a dipping sauce.
