Back in the Saddle

Yes, that was over a 2 month hiatus from blog posting!  I guess that is what happens when your hubby returns (finally) from a 7 month long deployment! Yay!  For those who don't know, my husband flies the CH-53E for the USMC and has been deployed this past year with the 24th MEU.  We are so happy to have him back and have really been enjoying being a family again.  On the food front, I have been cooking up a storm, it is so exciting to have someone to cook for that is over the age of 4!  I have many new recipes to post in the coming weeks, so here's a little preview of what is to come:

Rotini with Bacon, Zucchini, Corn, and Pesto
Lamb Riblets with Panko Breaded Brussels Sprouts & Mashed Potatoes

Charcoal-grilled Ribeye & Shrimp with 'Mom's Teriyaki Marinade' and Asparagus
Grilled Fish Tacos in Warm Homemade Tortillas
Phyllo Wrapped Tilapia Fillets with Lemon Shallot Sauce
Slow-cooker Pulled Pork BBQ with Homemade Burger Buns and Broccoli Slaw

Can you tell we've been grilling A LOT?  Summer ain't over yet!

I love your blog! I had to tell you also that my husband was deployed in Desert Storm in 1991 for 6 months. I totally know how hard that it is. Congratulations and I really appreciate your husband's and your sacrifice for our Country. Blessings!
