the kids and all of their candy - I'm not even going to mention that we don't have dental insurance. And, Josh has a dentist appointment this afternoon. I do wonder what I was thinking to schedule a dentist visit the day after Halloween.
|can you believe they lay it all out like this? I bet they've counted their candy seven times.|
|what are your favorites?|
|I like: starburst, milky ways, twix, and reese's peanut butter cups|
I'll post pictures of the kids later in the week. I think I'll add them into the Favourite Things Friday post.
Remember those cornish game hens? They were the losers this weekend - or maybe we were,
because we had to eat them.
They were awful. The glaze that I put to give them flavor turned out marginally well, but the meat itself was so dry, we literally choked it down. I also made sweet potatoes that had no moisture. We were on a timeline because Josh had a dance at his school. It's very difficult to try to eat dry food quickly.
We wasted time waiting for Josh's dance to be over. We decided to do a little shopping until I was with the girls in the shoe department and saw a really creepy guy [trying on women's high heeled boots]. I didn't think I had the fortitude to explain, so we just left and wasted time somewhere else.
We had a winning day on Sunday. Rob wanted to skip church and we enjoyed a very quiet and relaxing Sunday morning. It was awesome.
|it was a beautiful day|
|they acted like they won the lottery when they "re-found" their paint set|
I decided to make a frittata, because I was hungry for potatoes and eggs. I'd never made one before, and it was surprisingly easy and versatile - and everyone loved it.
|step #1 - brown potatoes and onions until tender and golden|
|step #2 - add favorite toppings (ours were country ham and cheddar)|
|step #3 - add the ham to "frizzle" it|
|my new favorite toy - a microplane|
|step #4 - add eggs (I added four, and also a little milk) - bake until set|
|step #5 - enjoy!|
