FFF and What's For Dinner

Today for Favorite Foto Friday, I decided to use this picture of Gabriella and I right after she was placed in my arms forever - August 30, 2006. I love the way she is gazing up at me.

And, for the what's for dinner part of the post.... this is a stew(soup?) that I loved growing up. My grandmother and mom used to make it and in college I finally asked my mom for what was in it and have enjoyed making it as soon as the weather gets a bit cooler. And the best part? It's another crockpot recipe. So, here's what cookin' for dinner tonight.

1 package of Polska Kielbasa(or smoked sausage) - I am using the turkey kielbasa this time
1 large onion cut into large bite-size pieces
1 package baby carrots
3 cans of stewed tomatoes (I used two stewed and one diced)
2 cans of kidney beans
Italian seasoning to taste

Mix it all up, cook on low for 6-8 hrs or until the carrots are done.
I like to serve it with cornbread

Could that be any easier?

Those photos melt my heart and make me cry. What wonderful memories. Our Forever Family Day is this week. I just can't believe it.

Sorry you have lost your long nap. These sleep transitions are so hard. I have gained a long nap, but from 6-8 in the evening, staying up late and getting up by 9, now, which doesn't sound early but it is for us!!! I want our schedule back from a week ago. Hopefully she will transition back like she usually does.
