Hope everybody had a good holiday celebration with their friends and families! We went and visited my inlaws and went swimming in their recently fixed swimming pool.

Last week we made Giada’s Chicken Parmesan… MmmMMM!! It was soo good! We used marinara sauce that we purchased instead of making our own, and it came out delicious enough. Even Big Daddy ate it (and he’s a picky eater, ya know.) I definitely want to make it again sometime. Also, if we have time this week, I am going to try to make these delicious sounding Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert one day.

I didn’t do any blogging yesterday, so today here is my menu plan for the rest of this week.

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
