After a really busy day of packing things up in the house, grocery shopping, homework, haircuts and house cleaning we were eager to sit down to dinner. I found a recipe on The Pioneer Woman's blog that looked so good that I just had to give it a try.
It’s called Chicken with Tomatoes and Garlic and this is what it looked like right before we put it in the oven for an hour:
I forgot to get a picture of the finished product, but you can get the recipe and some beautiful pictures of the process here. It turned out delicious and was very simple to prepare.
After dinner we decided to take the kids out for some ice cream and Baskin Robbins…here are a pictures of that:
As you can see, ice cream (and donuts for Landon) make the kids very happy. And they laugh. And make funny faces for the camera. And they are nice to each other. It’s a wonderful world and all that.
Until we get back in the car to go home…and it all goes back to normal. “He’s touching me”, “She’s being mean”, “Can you tell him to stop”, “I don’t want to go to school tomorrow”.
Sometimes I wish I could give them ice cream IV’s. ;)
