    What are we having for dinner this week?

    Sunday- Mexican Lime soup

    Monday- fried rice

    Tuesday- orange beef

    Wednesday- tilapia

    Thursday- leftovers

    Friday- pork chops

    Saturday- cheesy beef stroganoff

    Say what?  I’m still cooking every night?  Well, I’m not- we had a ton of leftovers last week, so we ate leftover twice and went out twice.  Now we’ve eaten most of that and I have to start cooking again.  At my OB appt on Friday (also my due date) she said they’ll let me go 10 days before they will induce me.  I’m ok with that, I feel pretty good, I’m on week three of a cough and cold that I’d like to get over, and my parents won’t be arriving in town until the 8th, so I guess we’ll just keep on keeping on until the end!

  • Random calendar idea

    Date: 2012.02.24 | Category: parenting | Response: 0

    Somewhere on the world wide web I saw this simple idea for learning the calendar and practicing numbers and writing with preschoolers.  JT and I have been doing it since the beginning of the year and he LOVES it- he looks forward to it every night.  We hung a calendar in his bedroom and every night before bed he writes the day’s date and then makes a big X on the square for the day.

    We also write in something that happened that day (preschool or snow or played with friends) and talk about the things that are coming up in the next few days and weeks.  It’s a simple way to encourage him to practice writing his numbers and to start reinforcing the days of the week and grasping the concept of the calendar and time.

    Try it with your preschooler!

  • Valentine’s Cinnamon Rolls

    Date: 2012.02.14 | Category: recipes | Response: 3

    I saw this cute idea on Pinterest and decided to make them for breakfast for Valentine’s Day this year.  I cheated and bought Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and made those- they still turned out yummy!

    I simply removed the rolls from the exploding tube, partially unrolled each one, and then rerolled it into a heart shape.

    Oops- I forgot to take a picture before I started frosting them!

    Didn’t they turn out pretty?  When they came out of the oven they had flattened enough that it was a little hard to tell they were in the shape of hearts,

    but a quick pinch with my fingers as I was serving them helped a lot!

    Easy, yummy and festive.  Perfect!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!
