Happy Homemaker Monday 01.18.16

Hello everyone…it’s a cold one again.  Didn’t want to get from under my nice warm covers this morning!!  We have the day off today from school, but of course I’ve got other things to do. I have  some shelves I need to organize, and am working on our taxes, which is something I actually enjoy doing!!  Enjoy your week!!

Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

Snow Squall? What the heck is a snow squall? I think they are starting to make things up now, lol. OK Google…what is a snow squall? A snowsquall is a sudden moderately heavy snow fall with blowing snow and strong, gusty surface winds. Huh…should be fun.


Just finished Hide Your Heart by Tracey Alvarez. This one was pretty standard, she’s hiding out and healing from an abusive relationship. He’s the type of guy that doesn’t settle down, he’s not made that way…until he is.  What I liked was story took place in New Zealand, so that was different. Also the main character was a former model, but now restores cars with her brother, and was quite the mechanic, and could wield a chain saw. The male main character was a photojournalist, which he explained as “Photographers capture nouns; photojournalists shoot verbs.” I need to find a good suspense to read, haven’t done that in awhile.


I will try this one this week, I bought the ingredients when I went shopping. I even have fresh basil to use…my boys will probably ask why there are leaves in the food 😐 Looks yummy. I am also trying a different sauce. I normally use Prego with all my Italian dishes, this time I bought a Newmann’s Own sauce.  I really want to try the Bongiovi brand one of these days, I think Target sells it.  Bongiovi as in Jon Bon Jovi!!  I saw him and his dad on one of the cooking shows, the sauce is their family recipe.  Anniehow…Chicken Parmesan Baked Penne is what’s on the menu this week.

This is incredible. This woman is beautifully strong. I couldn’t imagine being that flexible.

If this works, it will be amazing. I love to make Deviled Eggs, but hate to peel them. Also, this would work great when I make soft boiled eggs, you could probably use warm water, so that they stay warm.

He is literally chillin’…I love the seagulls out here!!

    • Yep, snowball fights are fun. I enjoy building forts too. We use square plastic containers to make snow bricks, works best with that wet snow though. Hope you have a great week too Joanna!! xx


  1. Snow squalls, huh? Well you learn something new every day right? 🙂 Freezing here, but hopefully a warm up this week and then sticks around!!

    A good mystery to snuggle up with sounds like a great plan!

    That dish looks so tasty!! Just chop that basil even more fine and mix it in and I bet they’ll hardly even notice. 😉

    What a great trick! I totally have to try that the next time I do hard boiled eggs.

    Stay warm and snuggly and have a great week Sweetie!! xoxo

    • LOL…I thought you would know about snow squalls, still cold here, but they are talking about close to 40 on Sunday. Still looking for my good mystery to start, haven’t found one yet. Stay warm…have a great week hon!! xx


  2. I’ve never heard of a snow squall either. I think I’ll pass 😉 Your dish to try looks really good, I’ll be anxious to hear how it turns out for you. My boys wouldn’t be too keen on “leaves” in their food either. Hope you have a wonderful week!
