When I came in from the other room this morning I saw this:
"Nope Mom, wasn't me, it was him honest!" LOL. Notice my curtain pulled down in the background? :-)
This kind of things are daily occurrences in our house, that's why I have magnetic curtain holders for the sidelights. :-)
Kathleen was busy making the Shamrocks to hang in those window squares. She does 5 and Hayley does 5 and we change them for seasons and holidays.
I mentioned in my other post some new recipes I was trying. This one I found at Gina's Skinny Recipes.
If you haven't already found her site, it's definitely worth it to stop by! She creates recipes with weight watchers point values. They are awesome recipes! This one I tried last night was for a zucchini casserole and it was delicious!!
I know...it looks like a big pile of mush... but it is really yummy! And if you do follow weight watchers it's only 3 points. :-)
4 cups grated zucchini
1 cup Bisquick (using heart smart)
1 small onion, grated
3 egg whites, 1 whole egg
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
1 tsp parsley
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix everything together in a bowl. Spray pie or casserole dish with Pam ( I used olive oil in a special container we have for spraying oils)
Pour in mixture
Bake 45 mins or so until golden brown.
Put a toothpick in the center to see if it's done.
The next meal I tried was Chicken Terriyaki with Broccoli ( Not Gina's recipes)
2 cloves garlic minced
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless, chicken breast cut into 1 inch cubes
4 medium scallions ( I left these out didn't have them on hand) chopped (green and white parts)
1/2 cup fat free chicken broth
2 Tbsp Terriyaki sauce
2 cups cooked brown rice, regular or instant keep hot
4 cups fresh broccoli florets, steamed
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set pan over medium high heat. When hot, add garlic;cook stirring about 1 min. Add chicken, cook until golden brown on all sides, stirring often about 5 mins.
Add scallions; cook until soft, stirring, about 2 mins. Add broth and terriyaki sauce; simmer until chicken is cooked through ans sauce reduces slightly, about 5 mins.
Spoon 1/2 cup of cooked rice into each of 4 shallow bowls, spoon 1 cup of chicken mixture and 1/2 cup broccoli over each serving.
Enjoy!! (This had a really nice taste) Girls enjoyed it too!
I also had a smile on my face when I found my herbs growing into a heart shape on my window sill. The girls were delighted by it. :-)
I'm also enjoying some leisure reading. Right now I'm reading The Choice by Nicholas Sparks. It's really good so far, I really enjoy his books. My all time favorite of his is The Notebook. If you have not read this book yet I highly recommend it. But be sure to have tissues nearby. :-)
Have a great afternoon!!!
Thanks to all of you for the lovely comments on my last post. I appreciate every one! And as Mark mentioned to have me let the girls paint my sneakers pink....hmmmm... maybe I will! LOL I know they would sure enjoy it. LOL
