The love of my life-of course besides my son

I haven't posted anything on my blog for awhile...again. I have been so busy with eveything going on in my life. I haven't had a chance to really post much about my fiance Joshua. Well, I know I post a lot of recipes so I did want to mention that he cooks! Wow. He made Jonah and I dinner and dessert. Was it good!! The first was a potato cheese soup that had carrots in it. It was wonderful. I have never had a potato soup with vegetables in it. If I can remember I will post that one because it was a comfort food. Then Sunday he made lasagna. That was quick and very good. The weird thing about me is that I have never been successful making lasagna.
For dessert he made us a cake with homemade chocolate frosting. I was in heaven. It was his mother's recipe. It was better than store bought but I also think that it is the perfect frosting for doughnuts. Last year I made some doughnuts (using the refridgerated biscuits) and I had a hard time finding a frosting/glaze for them. I am picky about my chocolate. Well, this was very delicious. The last dessert that he made was vanilla ice cream with warmed applesauce on top. I liked it. I don't usually eat ice cream. I didn't eat a lot that night in regards to dessert since I was so full from everything. I was just spoiled to death.
There is so much to write about Joshua. He is such a joy in my life and Jonah just loves him. He has been reading to Jonah almost every night. Right now we are reading James and the Giant Peach. I believe we are actually close to the end. I am not sure which book we are going to start next.

Butterscotch oatmeal

I made butterscotch oatmeal for breakfast this morning. I have made it before but it has been such a long time. I am not a fan of plain oatmeal. It has to have tons of flavor in it. I found the recipe again This is also a fun little recipe source.
