Baked pork chops and potato hash

Tonight's dinner




Baked pork chops on top of fresh green beans (Italian dressing on all)













Fried potato hash - parboiled diced potatos and cooked them up in some butter with S&P, tonys, garlic/onion powder.















30 minute rolls - I didn't have enough yeast (and it was 2 years expired :o ) so these turned out like 30 minute bricks, but I do plan on trying again once I buy new yeast.


 
Shawn thought it was delicious. Connor still doesn't like potatos but thought everything else was great. Collin ate all his pork, loved the potatos but said he was full and hated the green beans. I also hated the green beans, I just like mine from the can. Nobody ate the rolls.  

Stuffed Chicken

Dinner Tuesday 7/23/13



Bacon wrapped chicken breast - butterflied and stuff with jalapeƱo strips and chive &onion cream cheese.

Roasted cauliflower - EVOO, S&P, tonys, lemon juice and parmesan cheese.
Roasted potato slices- coated in Italian dressing and parmesan cheese.
After over 3 years of not blogging I'm gonna give it another try. I'm going to attempt to blog my dinners so that I'll know what I've already cooked and have all my dinner ideas in one place.

New beds

So its been awhile, but I thought I'd post a few pictures of the new bed set up the boys have. Connor had been in a twin and Collin in the crib but Collin figured out how to climb out so we knew it was time for a change. We had a toddler bed on hand but my parents wanted to get rid of the other twin they had so we decided to push the two twins together to make a big bed for the boys to share. We threw an old futon mattress on top to cover the seam of the beds. I was nervous b/c Collin is a little monkey so I wasn't sure if he would stay in bed or if I'd hear him destroying the house in the middle of the night. So far he's done wonderful! He went right to sleep the first night while I was sitting with them reading. When he woke up the next morning he walked into our bedroom with a shocked look on his face and said "I got off of my bed!" both confused and proud of his new freedom. The boys love sharing a bed and I think its a great way for them to bond. I think bed sharing of any kind yields better sleep (for us at least) which is why Collin slept in bed with me till he was 15 months. On to the pictures and also some of their new haircuts that they let their Pops give them in exchange for a couple of cookies.

Happy 2nd Birthday Collin!

Collin turned 2 yesterday. I can't believe my baby is 2 now, hes still nursing and of course, still rear facing in the car. We had a nice little family party, and of course, cake. I used the elmo cake pan to make him a cookie monster cake. He loved it! Thats all for now, Hopefully he'll have his 2 year old checkup this week and i'll post his stats and more pictures then.

Happy Halloween and Happy Blogiversary to me!

I've had my blog for a year now! I may not post often but its still be a year. Happy Blogiversary to me!!

And Happy Halloween to everybody. We've been doing halloween up big this year. I took the boys to the pumpkin patch, Boo at the Zoo, trick or treating on sorority row at LSU, trick or treating last night in a friends neighborhood and of course we're going tonight. The boys have gotten tons of candy and been loving every minute of it. And to top it all off, i went to Old Navy yesterday and got 4 costumes (monkey, tiger, dalmatian , and butterfly) all for just $2 a piece, what a deal! Oh and for breakfast i made the boys orange pumpkin shaped pancakes. I'll try to post all the pictures from everything tonight. Hope everybody has a fun and safe Halloween!
