Shoes and Dinner

Wednesday already!

Today is an early release day for Max. After we pick him up from school we need to pick up a new pair of ballet slippers for Mia. She has outgrown her old ones! Ballet started 3 weeks ago and she has been dancing in too tight shoes. For tonight's class she will have new shoes that fit :)

Ballet class goes from 4:30-5:15. It doesn't leave me a lot of prep time to make dinner afterward. Crock pot dinners are great and I am not opposed to pizza but tonight I have plans for a great make a head dinner!

This Sweet Potato Gnocchi is one of our favorite dinners.
The gnocchi can be made ahead of time and then thrown into the freezer for later. I like to serve it with a brown butter and sage sauce and then top the whole thing off with parmesan cheese. Serve it with a salad from a bag and dinner is super simple.
That's my plan for tonight anyway!

I may end up throwing together some dessert.
I haven't made brownies in a while and these Salty fudge Brownies from une gamine dans la quisine look pretty awesome!

I need your brown butter and sage recipe sauce. That sounds so good.
