Wow, it is Thursday, already!  Time sure sure goes by fast when you are having fun!

Last week my grandbaby girls both had Birthdays, so I made them a Frozen cake, because that is what they like :)  I have to admit, even though I had heard of Frozen, I had no clue who the characters were, so my son told me their names and my daughter printed them out for me :)  Remember, I can no longer do store bought cakes, so every thing must be made by me....yes, the mom who is not the least bit crafty or artistic...LOL....but I am learning...remember the Sonic cake I made, or the Minecraft?

It has been pretty warm these past few days..BUT, tomorrow they are calling for 100% rain, and cold coming through.  I just adore winter, so I was not ready for the warm days...LOL.

For Christmas, my husband got me the iphone 6 and I have to say, it is really great for my eyes :) I also picked out a pretty pink cover, pink is my color..LOVE IT!
Have a great Thursday!

This Monday morning after everyone left for work and I finished school drop off...I did 20 minutes on my Elliptical...sometimes I have sooo much energy I have to do extra to release it :)  Happy Monday

Dinner tonight is Nachos with the leftover beef from last night's dinner.

Muffins :)

Along with the breakfast bowls I pre-make on Sunday for my husband to eat before work, I also made a batch of Blueberry Muffins and Chocolate Chip muffins.
I also made my rolls, too!
Happy Cooking!
Stay warm.
It is wet and cold today.

Sunday's Dinner :)

 These potatoes were fingerlings, and I have to say they were the best potatoes ever.  I roasted them with garlic salt :)
400 degree oven for almost 45 minutes :)

Chicken Enchiladas :)

So happy it is Friday :)
It was a cold, cold week, and I loved every minute of it.
I made chicken enchiladas, rice and beans tonight for dinner.
I have my linens in the wash, and I am straightening up a bit, so I can wake up Saturday to a nice and neat home.

Have a great evening and stay warm...I am waiting for Dateline to come of my TV guilty pleasures.

Thursday~~~~9 Degrees Today!

 I have a Holiday book, and I have had it for a very long time.  Some of the printables say 2003 :)

It is time to put it away....BUT, it is never far from reach.  It really helps me when planning all the food, and I also, make a list of who came that year, what someone had brought, is quite the helper for me.

 Fresh Strawberries~~~~A staple in this home!
 Also, in Kevin's class they have snack time, and it must be healthy and easy to I give him these applesauce squeezes and something else like goldfish or a cereal bar.  What I really like about these applesauces is it says no nuts on the packages, an allergies mom favorite thing :)
I am also going to make some muffins and boiled eggs, and we have pancake mix and cereal, too.  I always have fresh fruit on hand for breakfast.  :)  School starts back tomorrow!

Friday...New Day, New Year :)

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.  It is cold and rainy and very dark today!  I am "trying" to organize the garage..BUT, I really need 3 more empty boxes, one for keep, donate and I am at a conundrum at the moment...I am trying to combine boxes to get the the 3 boxes I need...LOL..Did that make sense?

For dinner last night we went to Longhorn's...they cater to the allergy family, so that is very nice, but I am still always on guard, ALWAYS!!!!

For dinner tonight, I will make some pork..with a starch and a veggie and a salad.....not sure what combo I will come up with yet:)

School is back in session on Tuesday.....I will miss my kids when they go back.  My daughter is growing into such a wonderful young lady, and so smart and compassionate.  She really has the voice of reason.

Have a wonderful day and stay safe and warm XO XO
