Day 8 of 365:
Today was the kids first day back to school from Winter Break. I would be lying if I said getting out of bed was super easy this morning. Since we returned from Hawaii, the kids sleep schedule has been a bit off, so last night I wanted to make sire we were all up in time, so I got a little OCD and setup multiple alarms. 6am rolled around this am and it was the ole, "Why are we up this early mom????" for the first 30 minutes. I guess the kids really were enjoying that beauty sleep they had been getting the past 3 weeks. Well, that time is over now kiddos!!! LOL
Thank goodness I had the kids get their clothes ready last night cause getting dressed this morning was super easy and I even had some extra time to do breakfast requests. Brooklyn wanted an over easy egg with a side of apples, Nicholas wanted the homemade granola I made the other day and Jonathan spent the night at my parents last night so he had no requests for me this am and when I swung by this am to drop off the car seats, he was still sleeping, so he got an extra day of beauty rest.
My dad was so great and was a big help with the kiddos today and pickup for school and helping with Jonathan. Nicholas started his Anatomy class today and he had his first field trip for home school which was to the theater. We saw the new Mary Poppins which was super cute! We loved the movie, minus the numerous bathroom trips, but it never fails when we go to the movies.... multiple bathroom trips. The joy of taking kids to the movies. Nicholas loved his Anatomy class though, and asked if he could go back tomorrow, which I told him he could cause he is going to be taking 3 classes on Wednesdays. He's so excited to be spending some more time at the new Center. His Wednesdays are definitely going to be busy busy busy between school and ABA.
Today with the field trip, we didn't get done until almost 4:30, and so I went to my parents to relieve my dad. Brooklyn had Brownies tonight so I knew I wouldn't be done running around with the kids until 7:30. Yes, Brownies... and guess what???? Guess what time it is??? It's cookie season!!! Taking Pre-orders stating Friday!!!!
Since this day was such a crazy day, I didn't have a chance to cook anything. It was leftover day for me, but I didn't want to leave you guys hanging and I wanted to share with you one of my favorite recipes. I made this dish for my bestie on one of our dinner nights. It was one of those recipes that I was just trying out and OMG it was so good!!!! Definitely at the top of my list for good recipes!!!!

This dish right here is truly one of my specialties. I love making this dish. If it’s for Jacks Birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just because we want something fancy. Usually I just do the Filet with shrimp or lobster and topped with holandaise and asparagus, but this Valentine’s Day I decided to elevate my recipe a little more and try something new and this is what I came up with. I hope you all enjoy and if you have someone special, try it! Steak Oscar for Two Ingredients: For the Steak: 2 Filet Mignon Steaks 1 tbs . Himalayan Salt 3 tbs . fresh cracked black pepper 2 tbs . avocado oil For the Hollandaise: 2 egg yolks 1 stick butter Juice of 1 lemon Salt and pepper to taste Dash of fresh tarragon minced For the Crab Cakes: 1 Dungeness crab shelled, and cartilage removed 1 tbs . fresh lemon juice 1 egg 1 tsp. himilayan salt 1 ½ tsp . cracked black pepper 1 tbs. fresh parsley, finely minced ½ cup fresh grated parmesa
After years of cooking and sharing recipes, I have finally put together my blog site. Its been a long journey in cooking for friends and family. It wasn't until recently that I was given the confidence to actually create a blog and share everything I have learned and am still learning in the kitchen. I recently was given the opportunity to air on live tv with Good Day Sacramento. It was quite the experience. Friends and family told me I was a natural on tv, but what they didn't see on tv was how extremely nervous me. My mom and my husband were there calming me down. After each take, I would let out a big "Whew" and ask how I did. Apparently my nervousness did not show when the camera was rolling. Thank Goodness! I would like to share the recipe of my dish on Good Day Sacramento with all of you. Spaghetti Squash is that ingredient that we all seem to forget about. It's amazing and very good for you to eat. I think when people look at a spaghetti squash,
Motherhood. Where do I even begin. It is both beautiful, challenging and somehow completes every part of me. When I was a young child, I remember always picturing myself as a mommy when I grew up and I knew that I would be a great mommy and I wanted to be a best friend to my kids like my mom was to me. I never knew the challenges that came along with Motherhood. I never knew how much you would worry about these precious gifts from God that you brought into this world. A dear friend of mine is a new mommy to her second child and I have been chatting with her about her challenges she's been having and that has prompted me to write this post, because I'm hoping that, like some moms out there, I want you to know, that, yes, we go through this... so I want to share with you my story. I guess I should start with my birth stories.... Cause those are always fun... LOL With our first child, Nicholas, our birth plan, as with most, we wanted to of course go the natural way
