Happy Homemaker Monday 05.02.16

Hey there!!  So we’ve had one day of spring, one day of summer, and a week of fall.  It has been rainy and cold for the past couple of days, but last night we had a nice spring storm, lots of lightning and thunder, love spring storms…until the wifi goes out!!  This week looks like we’ll see some sunshine…finally.  Have a great week!!

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

WHAT’S FEEDING MY BOOK ADDICTION:
I have been reading, will never stop doing that, lol, but haven’t really had the time to finish anything lately. Once I do, I’ll give you my review. Toggling between a few books, maybe that’s why I can’t finish one 😉

RECIPE I TRIED/ONE I WANT TO TRY:
So I made the Mozzarella-Stuffed Chicken Fingers. These were interesting. They are pretty thick, and the ground chicken was difficult to work with. I actually tasted them, and thought the taste wasn’t bad, but the texture of the fried ground chicken was different. Usually my son eats several regular cheese sticks for a meal, but these were thick and filling. Both boys were not overly impressed with them, but they did think they were pretty good. We dipped them in a marinara sauce, which added to the flavor. If you’d like to give it a try, you can find the link to the recipe here.

I would like to try this next, Carbonara Mac & Cheese. My sister makes a delish Spaghetti Carbonara, so when I saw this, thought it might be worth the try.

FAVORITE VIDEO/ARTICLE FROM THE WEB:
It’s baseball season, and the Cubs are killin’ it!! How fun is this, the whole team dressed in these crazy suits for their three-game series in Pittsburgh.


Coach Joe Maddon calls it “a minimalist zany suit trip.” Everyone must wear some part of the suit everyday during the three-game series or face a $100 fine.

The article goes on to say that “The Cubs finished the month of April at 17-5, the best in baseball”. Wait…what? Did I read that right? The best in baseball? Yep…

The. Best. In. Baseball!!

To My Fellow #Cubs Fans…

To My Fellow Cubs Fans:

I’m sorry.  It’s all my fault.  It seems I jinx the teams that I enthusiastically cheer for.  But I took it too far with my Cubbies.  I finally purchased a jersey, thinking how great it would be to have one to wear while they played in the World Series.  The really sad part about all this is, I bought it online, so I actually don’t even have it yet 😦  It seems this might be an inherited trait.  My mom told me that the Cubs would lose whenever she would bake cupcakes and decorate them with the Cubs logo.  There were no cupcakes, so it must be the jersey…or the lack thereof.

Nonetheless, it was a great year, and I’m all ready for next year 🙂

PS:  The Bears haven’t played well since I got my Bears Snuggie…I know…I’m truly sorry!!
