 What do you do when your husband is away on a business trip?  Prepare and eat fine dinners?  No way!  Not around here.  We made blackberry pie, brownies, no-bake cookies...and donuts.  Donuts were a first for me.  The kids were a big help...and no one ended up a burn victim with hot oil around.   Always a plus!
Arwen was a goofball for all her pictures.  But she sure enjoyed her sprinkled donut.
I like this picture because it really shows off the half-bangs Noah cut for her a few weeks ago.  Whew, Noah!  Thanks.  I was really looking for ways to save a few bucks. 
Joshua eats his toast like this too...upside down.  And really, think about it.  This way, the good sugary sweet stuff is the first thing that touches his tongue. 
Noah always enjoys himself a yummy treat or ten! 
While driving home from the airport, the kids told Dad we got him some donuts from Krispy Kreme.  He came in and saw the plate and totally believed us!  Ha Ha!  And...lest you be worried about all those empty calories we ate while Aaron was gone, these donuts were made from a secret ingredient from the garden...that makes them healthy!  Can you guess the ingredient??

Ha ha! Yummalicious. Seriously, those look so amazing. You are a wonder! The garden ingredient...um, yeah, I'm perplexed. Please tell!

Hmmm...it's got to be dirt, the kids having helped and all.

Zucchini or crookneck squash. If so, give us the recipe because we have way more than we know what to do with. And eggplants...what to do with all the eggplants?

We didn't even plant zucchini or squash this year after being overloaded last year. Still have some in the freezer I think. If we plant them again...perhaps only one seed each.

Actually it was potatoes :) Pretty yummy! And Heidi...I have no idea what to do with eggplants. I've cooked with them a few times and none of the recipes I've tried have been all that great. Sorry :(

They must have eggs in them! And news flash, eggplant is gross! Shove it in meatloaf, which is delicious!
