This is officially the first weekend Nicholas will be diaperless – cross your fingers for us! I think we’ve finally made it!
Not sure of a good segueway from diapers to food, so I’m not even going to pretend that there is one. Had company over for dinner tonight and cheated in a MAJOR way. It was a crazy week, so I wanted to keep things nice and simple. I ordered Chinese food for the adults, and made Chocolate Decadence for dessert. Nice, warm molten chocolate – how can you go wrong with that? For the kids, I made mini homemade pizzas. I took Pillsbury biscuits and flattened them and put them in the individual muffin compartments of a metal muffin tray. I topped each with a little bit of tomato sauce, diced ham and cheese and baked at 425 for about 15 minutes. Personal pizzas for the kids that were decidedly NOT greasy and were easy for them to eat. The kids had a great time playing together, and I think they will definitely be sleeping well tonight!
A semi-busy weekend, Nicholas has a birthday party tomorrow morning and we have some “house chores” planned. A trip to the Farmer’s Market and maybe, just maybe, a little bit of relaxing squeezed in as well. Planning on trying some recipes from a few recent cookbook purchases this weekend too, and finally breaking out the new deep fryer. Lastly, the new batch of magazines are out, so a trip to the bookstore is in order — I know the new delicious., Donna Hay and BBC Good Food are out.
I’ve been tagged for two recent memes, and I promise to finally get them posted this weekend as well.
