Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
Sunny and warm!! Well…33 degrees is warm for us now. We have a mess heading our way though, after midnight…snow, cold, freezing rain, then rain, with 40 degree temps, then back down to 20 on Wednesday. Gotta love the Midwest!! 🙂
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
Brownies and Coffee with my Sweet Cream Creamer. The brownies were from the bakery this time.
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:
I’m watching the birds feasting on their buffet (as my youngest likes to call it). It’s a buffet because our birds not only get bread, but sometimes popcorn, crackers, a pop tart or two. For some reason they don’t like corn flakes, those were there for a couple of days, they did finally eat them though. #pickybirds
RIGHT NOW I AM:
Drinking a Starbucks Mocha Coconut Frappuccino and typing up this post. These are delicious, first time trying this flavor. I buy them at the grocery store in the glass bottles. So delicious!!
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:
It is really clean, did a good cleaning yesterday.
ON TODAY’S TO DO LIST:
Laundry of course, and that includes laundering money. My son left his wallet in his pants, so yeah…I’m a criminal as well, I launder money, LOL. Have to balance the checkbook, would like to also make some bread pudding…been thinking about that since yesterday.
Still reading A Little Lower Than the Angels by Caryl McAdoo
Need to write my review on the other book I finished, and finish reading this one to write my review.
I recently finished Beneath the Patchwork Moon by Alison Kent. This was the next book in the series that I started that had the recipe for the brownies. This one was about the girl who makes scarves with her weaving loom. This is very good too, the main character, Luna Meadows, was introduced in the first book, letting you know that she had some secrets she had been keeping to herself. All that comes out in this book…very good.
ON THE TV TODAY:
We started watching The Voice last week. The kids and I started watching it when it first came out, and really enjoyed it. But once the judges changed, we didn’t watch it. But 3 of the original judges are there this season, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Christina Aguilera, and they really make the show. They added Pharrell Williams (the guy who sings Happy) as a judge, and he is actually pretty good. I’ll catch up on Castle on my laptop later in the week.
WHAT I AM CREATING AT THE MOMENT:
Nada, nic, zero, zilch, zip, nil, nought…nothing 😦
NEW RECIPE I TRIED OR WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:
I will be trying this week:
The two recipes I tried from Sandra, were very delicious. I liked the Swiss Steak Supper a lot, and so did my two sons. When my middle son really likes something, he’ll say Mom you make the best stuff. 🙂 My youngest son was analyzing it, and trying to decipher the flavors, LOL. You can find the recipes here:
Slow Cooker Swiss Steak Supper
Parmesan Chicken and Rice
I also tried Chicken Parmigiana from Sandra, and this is my favorite. I LOVE Chicken Parmigiana, and this one is very good, and easy to make. Served it with some Chicken flavored Fettuccine noodles, and a some green beans, so good!!
FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA:
I can’t believe it is already March, and we still have snow on the ground and ice at the lake. Hopefully these will be the last of the icy photos.
Not everything is frozen…signs of life!!
