Sundae Sunday

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. ;)

Sounds like our Sunday minus the ice cream and donuts...

Busy, busy, busy then chicken for dinner :-) I'll have to try the Pioneer Woman recipe. She's doing a book signing in Orlando soon. I'm tempted to swing over there to see her in person. Would that be weird?

Tony, who do you think said they didn't want to go to school tomorrow? You know it was your son!

Amanda, I don't think that would be weird at all! If she comes around this way I may go see her myself!

That Chicken dinner looks wonderful! Glad you had a nice Sunday afternoon!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
