Happy Homemaker Monday
The weather outside is::::It's so very cold. On the school run this morning it was about 18 degrees and the drive was was mostly a sheet of ice. I can't lie though. I'm not thrilled about the super warm temperatures this coming up weekend because then when it's cold again, we'll have to readjust...
On the breakfast plate this morning::::Naked blue machine, a coffee, and some blueberry oatmeal with banana.
As I look outside my window:::It's sort of a gloomy day, and everything is just brown...
Right now I am::::Sitting at the kitchen table with the girls, typing this up and eating breakfast.
As I look around the house::::The house is completely clean and I've already done the minor things this morning that needed to be done. The girls have their tea party and kitchen toys out in their playroom. They took a break from playing to eat real brekky. I have a turkey breast tenderloin running under cold water in the kitchen sink as I type to thaw enough to put into the crockpot for dinner.
On today's to do list::::Laundry....I have a small towel load in the washer that I'll have to dry, fold, and put away, as soon as it's done, and then tonight after dinner, I'll have the clothing from today to wash, dry, and put away but that's it.
In the kitchen....Keeping up on dishes and cooking dinner.
In the living room....minor pick up as the day goes on.
In the bathroom....I need to sweep and and steam mop the upstairs bathroom since I didn't do that last night.
Extra curriculars.....Sydney has dance tonight and Ben has wrestling
Currently reading::::Game of Thrones.
On the TV today::::I'm not really sure. I think Peppa pig will be on at some point and maybe sometime tonight we'll play Super Smash Bros as a family. I'll watch some vlogs too at some point, I'm sure.
On the menu this week::::Monday - Honey mustard turkey breast tenderloin, veggies
Tuesday - Spring chicken with veggies
Wednesday - apple bourbon pork tenderloin
Thursday - Asparagus and goat cheese pasta
Friday - Pancakes, eggs, and bacon
What I am creating at the moment::::I'm currently doing a granny square bunting for my room and I want to come up with something for my mantle over my fire place.
New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::Nigella Lawson's spring chicken recipe. I'm going to try it this week as well as a delicious looking goat cheese pasta dish. I do love goat cheese.
Favorite photo from the camera::::
Took the kids to the Nelson Atkins Art Museum yesterday to see the Plains Indians display. It was truly amazing, and while the kids got a little wild by the end of the trip, they even thoroughly enjoyed it.
