Happy Homemaker Monday
The weather outside is::::Cold!!! It's about 5 degrees right now, but the windchill is -8.
On the breakfast plate this morning::::I've not had anything yet. I'm thinking about a bowl of oatmeal with some banana, a coffee, and some green machine.
As I look outside my window:::It just looks cold. The ground is coated in frost and a tiny bit of snow. If only I didn't have to leave the house today.
Right now I am::::Snuggled up on my couch, watching the Today show, and just trying to keep warm. Typing up this blog post and dreaming about coffee.
As I look around the house::::The house is pretty well taken care of although Scotland did just dump her tote of diaper wipe packages and diaper cream all over my living room. Sydney is laying on the chair on her iPad watching the Office. Rylie is still asleep upstairs in her room and I can hear Maya snoring in the kitchen.
On today's to do list::::Laundry....I'm going to throw a load of diapers in the washer in a minute or two and then I'll have a load of clothing tonight.
Cleaning....In the kitchen....I need to unload the dishwasher and put the dirty glasses from the sink in the dishwasher.
In the living room....I have a blanket to fold, and some pillows to throw back on the couches. Some wipes and diaper cream to pick up, and some wii controllers to pick up as well.
In the bedrooms....Beds need to be made and the kids room needs a little picking up.
In the bathrooms....I washed them yesterday, so just a cleaning of the shower this evening.
Currently reading::::Game Of Thrones and Becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder still.
On the TV today::::Some vlogs, Miranda (which I'm almost through with but super obsessed) and I promised Sydney we'd start Parenthood over together. We are so sad it's over and she hasn't seen it from the
On the menu this week::::Monday - Leftover BBQ from last night
Tuesday - Bloody Good steak and veg
Wednesday - Chicken chow mein
Thursday - Tacos with rice and beans
Friday - Chicken Curry and rice
What I am creating at the moment::::I haven't made any progress on my bunting, but maybe this week!
New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::I bought a couple of kid friendly recipe books this weekend that I'm so super excited about. They are for cooking with small children and quick and easy family cooking. Two recipes on my meal plan this week, chicken chow mein, and chicken curry and rice, are from the Children's quick and easy cookbook. Also, this weekend, Shawn took me out shopping and I went into a extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar store. I bought these amazing oils and vinegars. I'm talking balsamic vinegar I could just drink from a cup. I'm so excited to use that on my bloody good steak recipe. I think the great quality in the vinegar will improve an already great dish.
