Unfortunately, it is a fact that millions of people go hungry every day. It is a fact that millions of children under the age of 5 are malnourished and many die as a result of hunger. There are over 50 countries that do not produce enough food to feed their population but not all hunger is an effect of food production. Consider those in the eye of the storm, literally, natural disasters, conflict, poverty and of course poor agriculture all contribute to the problem.
We can’t turn our backs on this issue. The United Nations developed goals for the 21st century and one of them was to cut the proportion of hunger in people around the world in half.
BlogCatalog members and Heifer International are partnering to call for the end of world hunger and start of hope on April 29. All we ask is that you join thousands of other bloggers and write a post about world hunger on April 29. You can make a difference. Start by joinning this event and add a badge to your blog TODAY!

So we were having chicken parmesan with a pesto tortellini pasta two nights ago and it was, oh my, delicious. I honestly did not expect my kids to eat the pasta because of the cheese and basic mix wrapped inside them. I was almost tempted to make a batch of just plain pasta for them but I just decided not to and just didn't bother to mention what was inside the tortellini. Funny thing is, my two youngest ate every bit and then some, they ate more then everyone else.
Since my little bear here was still eating without making a huge mess I decided to start on the dishes, and that's when he decided to do this:
He was even kind enough to point it out to me, he didn't want me to miss a bit of his big mess. Such a sweetheart! Just before this mess they were outside getting wet in the sprinkler which was great because they were clean--obviouly not for long.

- Coat the bottom of a pan with cooking spray or olive oil and heat on Medium to High.
- Gently pour in egg white, sprink with salt and pepper and let it cook for about a minute.
- Cup up asparagus and add to the egg white, let cook another minute.
- The eggs should be looking almost done at this point if not give it a little more time.
- Add the plum tomato, then baby spinach leaves, and sprinkle the cheese on top.
- Cover and let it cook until the cheese melts and the spinach leaves are a little wilted.

It was nice for us two to get away and just walk around the grounds, the garden, talk without being interrupted by kids (not that mine would ever do that..ha!) and ordering adult meals for two with no extra napkins please.
I think we need to do this more often. We had a great time!
