Ever have those nights when you need something quick and tasty that the kids will eat? Not to mention you're on a budget? Well last night I took out a pack of chicken tenders, added fresh green beans and a can of cream of chicken soup, can of water and added it all to my deep frying pan. Put on the lid and let it cook through and viola! Then I added a salad complete with fixings, tomatoes, cheese, cucumbers, etc. Fresh cut peaches and apples and dinner was done! The girls loved it and the chicken was so moist! Nothing fancy but it was a hit! :-)
This morning I was reviewing Hayley's spelling words with her before school. We always do this on a dry erase board to save paper. After she went out to the bus, I came in and found this tucked into the couch by my computer....
It totally made me melt! I love that girl! What a great start to my day. :-)
I have a busy couple days so Kathleen and I got right to her learning first thing. Then I had some crafts planned. First we collected leaves out front at the bus stop. She brought in her selection and we taped them to a piece of colored construction paper.
Next we hung it up on our kitchen window where it will stay for several days to make our sun leaf prints! We'll show a picture update along with our acorns soon! (P.S. please overlook the dirty windows on my list for cleaning! LOL)
Next we got started on our pumpkin patch! I painted her palm orange to make the pumpkins first...
Next I painted her fingertip green!
Then she completed her pumpkins....when dry she finished her picture! Great job Kathleen, love your creativity!
With all this hard work we had to have a little treat! So we made pumpkin milk shakes! MMMMMMM
First add the ice cream, then the milk, then the pumpkin pie spice (secret ingredient) Adjust amounts to your preferred tastes! Can also sprinkle cinnamon on top for a little extra treat!
Enjoy with a foamy mustache! So good!!!
Tonight I'm making yummy, cute, Halloween/Fall inspired dinner menu! Will try to get it posted later on!
Have a fabulous day!!
