Whats for Dinner?

Ok so dinner was rearranged tonight. We were supposed to have one thing but decided to not have it and instead had breakfast which we all know is YUMMY for dinner....

Ok we had Skillet and pancakes.

for the skillet we had

Potatoes 6-7 cut up
1/2 onion diced up
breakfast smoked sausage
olives
eggs whipped with milk
and cheese

I cook the eggs and onions for about 10 min on med

then I add the sausage


then the olives


then after cooking for about another 10 min I add the eggs



I keep cooking and mixing until the eggs are cooked
then I add the cheese and cover until done

and TA-DA

and of course with this we had pancakes. And the ONLY way to eat pancakes in this house is with BUTTER, PEANUT-BUTTER and LOTS of SYRUP..... MMMMMMM......

the Campbells people had it right when they said MMMMM...... MMMMM.... GOOD....

this is Kimmy's Sauce

Ok this is a sauce that a friend of mine makes and has agreed to post it on here. ENJOY...


Here is the recipe for the sauce I mentioned. By it's self it's kinda strong, but when added to the pork and a good, creamy slaw it's perfect! I found it online and it's called Big Daddy's Finishing Sauce.

Ingredients:

* 1 cup prepared yellow mustard
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1/4 cup light brown sugar
* 3/4 cup cider vinegar
* 1/4 cup water
* 2 tablespoons chili powder
* 1 teaspoon black pepper
* 1 teaspoon white pepper
* 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
* 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1 tablespoon liquid smoke (hickory flavoring)

Preparation:
Mix all except soy, butter and smoke. Simmer 30 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer for 10 more minutes.

In search of a NAME

Well as if I didn't have enough on my plate we decided that we were in need of yet another 4 legged baby.

So without further ado I would like to introduce our new baby.....

TAAADAAA






Now if only she had a name..... Yes folks you read that right. Our little baby girl has NO name. So I am opening the field to you all to help name her.

The one that chooses the name that the Boys like and agree on will be getting a $5.00 gift card to Starbucks. So come one and help us name our baby girl.

I would Love to have a name for her by the end of Next week. So please pass on the news of the Name search so I can get as many entries as possible.

Thank you and as always

GOD BLESS

Dinner with PHOTOS....

OK first you will gather your ingredients.

Pork Loin CHECK

Crock Pot CHECK

Pineapple CHECK

BBQ SAUCE CHECK


rinse the pork loin and place in CP ( crock-pot ) add the can of Pineapple and the juice and cook on high for 5 hours.

shred and cook for another 2 hours.

add and entire bottle of BBQ Sauce and let cook another hour.

toast whole wheat bun add the cold slaw and the meat and EAT..... YUM O..... My sister gave me this recipe and it is DELISH.... I don't like cold-slaw but on the sammy its DIVINE....

SPEAK ENGLISH WOULD YOU????

Ok quick little vent then I am off to shower I SWEAR.....

If you are going to work with the public and On the phone LEARN TO SPEAK ENGLISH and please learn to speak it well....

Nothing is More irritating to me than trying to understand a person on the phone that can't speak English AT ALL!!!!

Ok just a tad outburst from a frustrated mom....

Whats that I smell?

Why its my yummy Pork Loin in the crock pot, Yes I am making YUMMY pulled pork sammys for dinner.

But in the mean time I am busy with my everyday chores.

Get brae up and ready for school CHECK
Drive Brae to school CHECK
help Logan with school work CHECK
get the pork in the cp CHECK
sit on my butt and eat lunch CHECK CHECK.... =)

I have taken pictures of my dinner from beginning to end ( not the end part quite yet )
and I will post them and the yummy final product.

In the mean time I have to jump into the shower go pick up brae run Logan and Brae to soccer practice and then back home. ( see this is the TAXI part of my day )

But I love being a mom and now a soccer mom to boot. WOOHOO I am a soccer mom....

So I often ponder strange things in my little brain. Like

JUST HOW HOT DOES THE STREET GET?
I ask this for I think.... If I cracked a egg on the street would it actually cook?

CAN I COLOR MY DOGS HAIR?
I think Bijou needs a cool hair-do so I wonder if I could color it PINK, Or PURPLE....HMMMMM

And JUST HOW MUCH WOOD DOES A WOODCHUCK CHUCK?
Does anyone really know this answer?

So as you can see My brain is FULL of useless information.

like the Rhino.... do YOU know what its horn is made of? I do and I am not sure WHY I DO

Or do you know why the flamingo is pink? Again I know this too. Why I have no idea. I mean really, is knowing this stuff making my life better or easier? NOPE... its just taking up brain space that I need for the important stuff like

NOT FORGET MY CHILD AT SCHOOL ( like I did with Logan last Friday at co-op )

Or forgetting to use the potty. ( which quite frankly I do on a daily basis. ) Its not that I forget
( actually it is ) I just like to think I am SUPER BUSY to go... =)

So as I ponder all these crazy thoughts and facts I shall go take that shower that I mentioned earlier and see if I can possibly NOT forget to pick up RANG TANG TOUIE.

typical school day...... OR IS IT?????

Well Mornings or as I like to call them CONTROLLED CHAOS are a tad different around here.

The boys IE Brae is NOT a morning person. ( I think he gets that from me. )

I personally think there is nothing ruder than waking up to an annoying BEEP....... BEEP........ BEEP...

I mean seriously WHO in their right mind thought this was a good idea?

I personally think the invention of the alarm clock was the devils work.

But I digress. MY point ( yes I had one ) is my boys typically LOUNGE around before getting motivated to start the day. So Mon and Wed are the days they get to do that.

Here they are watching a bit of Sonic X and eating daddies home made cinnamon rolls. Which were quite tasty...

Braeden zoning out in the glider

Logan already in charge of the Remote. ( isn't that a man thing? ) Nolan would beg to differ he says I'm the remote hog. But come on ME???? REALLY????



And now a few photos to show we do actually get work done...
This was taken last week while Logan was busy doing his school work I printed off a lapbook for Braeden.

E is for EARTH.....

He had so much fun making it, and it really helped him with his writing.
Notice how nice he is holding the pencil??? He is actually Ambidextrous. And if I would let him he would be holding one in each hand trying to get the work done faster.


And here he is looking all innocent.... Actually he is a pretty special boy..... And he was proud of himself for staying in the lines.

So see even with my Controlled Chaos that we live in, we have fun and stay on top of learning... Now WHERE DID I PUT MY BRAIN?????
