I was thinking today about random things, as I usually do, and was thinking about how big the boys are getting and realized that only 3 short (and long) years ago, Zakkai was a teeny tiny baby and Samuel was pretty much baby himself. The boys really like to hear stories about when they were “little” (as if they aren’t now!).

Flow with me here for a minute and take a walk down memory lane….:)

March 2007: The beginning of brotherly love:)

And here is one of our favorite simple recipes! The boys even gobble this up, which rates it an A in my book!

Three Beans and Sausage

1 lb smoked sausage, cut into 1 inch slices (sometimes I use turkey kielbasa)

1 can ea (16oz ea) of kidney beans, great northern beans and black beans; rinsed and drained

1/4 cup minced onion

1 cup water

1 can (8oz) tomato sauce

1 tsp chicken bouillon granules

1 tsp garlic powder

2-3 cups cooked Rice


1. In a 5-Qt crockpot, combine all ingredients except rice. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 4 1/2 hours or until heated through. Serve over rice!

*Sometimes I like to throw broccoli in towards the end to steam. Yum!
