Happy Homemaker Monday 05.02.16

Hey there!!  So we’ve had one day of spring, one day of summer, and a week of fall.  It has been rainy and cold for the past couple of days, but last night we had a nice spring storm, lots of lightning and thunder, love spring storms…until the wifi goes out!!  This week looks like we’ll see some sunshine…finally.  Have a great week!!

Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

WHAT’S FEEDING MY BOOK ADDICTION:
I have been reading, will never stop doing that, lol, but haven’t really had the time to finish anything lately. Once I do, I’ll give you my review. Toggling between a few books, maybe that’s why I can’t finish one 😉

 
LOL CHUCKLES, AND GIGGLES:

RECIPE I TRIED/ONE I WANT TO TRY:
So I made the Mozzarella-Stuffed Chicken Fingers. These were interesting. They are pretty thick, and the ground chicken was difficult to work with. I actually tasted them, and thought the taste wasn’t bad, but the texture of the fried ground chicken was different. Usually my son eats several regular cheese sticks for a meal, but these were thick and filling. Both boys were not overly impressed with them, but they did think they were pretty good. We dipped them in a marinara sauce, which added to the flavor. If you’d like to give it a try, you can find the link to the recipe here.

I would like to try this next, Carbonara Mac & Cheese. My sister makes a delish Spaghetti Carbonara, so when I saw this, thought it might be worth the try.

FAVORITE VIDEO/ARTICLE FROM THE WEB:
It’s baseball season, and the Cubs are killin’ it!! How fun is this, the whole team dressed in these crazy suits for their three-game series in Pittsburgh.


Coach Joe Maddon calls it “a minimalist zany suit trip.” Everyone must wear some part of the suit everyday during the three-game series or face a $100 fine.

The article goes on to say that “The Cubs finished the month of April at 17-5, the best in baseball”. Wait…what? Did I read that right? The best in baseball? Yep…

The. Best. In. Baseball!!

  2. Absolutely adore your cartoon! How true is that – women are the ultimate multi-taskers. Spring storms are then best – hope you have a few more good ones before summer hits. Great inspirational quote also. Have a great week.
