What We Do On Sundays

Today I made Chicken Marsalas (or as I call it, Chicken Winton Marsalis) for Sunday Dinner. It was fun to try a new dish on Sunday for a change. I usually reserve experiments for Weekdays. David and I ate until we could eat no more and the kids enjoyed some ginger ale and pop (or coke, as they say hear in the south). I look foward to making Winton for dinner again very soon, as David has always been a big fan (of the chicken and the trumpet) .

Hungry, Hungry Hippos

My 5 yo son asked to play one of his favorite games (I loved this game when I was a little girl). However, we have to be flexible with the rules when you play with my 2 yo son. "What rules?," I say, "I didn't know Hungry Hippos had any rules. Don't you just smack the button until the Hippos are all satisfied?" If you look closely at the photo, my 2 yo is opening the hippo's mouth and shoving the marbles in. Notice also that his Hippo has the most marbles.

How to Poor Pancake Syrup 101

Okay, this is a class I need to take next fall. Yesterday morning I attempted to poor hot just then homemade syrup from a resteraunt style pourer when the metal handle thingy popped right off. Thankfully, the glass bottom only fell on a plate, so ther wasn't any broken glass involved in the chaos that was(is) my kitchen. However, syrup landed everywhere- the countertop, my hair, my clothes, but mostly all over the floor. Wait-it gets better. Then my 2 yo son runs in, fully clothed. He slips in the mess, lands on his rear and looks at me with a quiet fear. His face had a "she's gonna snap if I scream so I better not make a peep" expression. So, I spent all morning cleaning syrup off of everything. Wow is that stuff sticky. Maybe I should just "stick" with the secure-lidded,plastic-bottled, store-bought variety of the pancake syrup.

A Quote For The Day

"Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such." -Henry Miller

What Can I Say

So, I finally entered this decade and created my very own blog. It will be filled with half thought-out musings sporadically typed-out inbetween loving my babies and keeping my household in-check. Case-in-point: I gotta go, my 2 yo is trying to breack down a bedroom door with his chubby little fist.
