As a little girl-and honestly maybe until I was 16 or 18-my dad called me "peanut." This was because when I was born my head was shaped like a peanut. He also has been known to call all of his kids "pumpkin head." I think both of these pet names are pretty cute...and I am not super fond of pet names. I have noticed myself using them for Reagan lately and it always makes me laugh to myself. My dad is a Captain in the Navy...basically he has worked his butt off for over 30 years and is amazing at his job and serving our country. Tomorrow he leaves for Afghanistan...again. He has been on tours in Iraq, Qatar, Afghanistan, and on multiple ships multiple times since 2001. I am really proud of him. I am wondering if you could say a quick prayer for him, that God would keep him safe for the next year?
And speaking of pumpkins and peanuts...here is the link to what we had for dinner last night....amazing!!! I didn't have shallots so just used more onion...added more garlic, subbed the low fat milk for whole milk and cream, subbed the smooth pb with crunchy, and added curry powder and a big dash of cayenne pepper. I served it with cranberry corn muffins. Really yummy and about to eat the leftovers right now!
