Space Day January 20,2010

Space day had finally arrived all the kids in preschool were elated as the conditions of the day were that they were all to wear their pajamas to school, bring a blanket and a flashlight. I had offered to help with a couple of the other Mom's we were in charge of making the pancakes while the kids learned about space and the planets. By the time the pancakes were served the kids were in fine form. They all enjoyed their pancakes and juice and after the clean up I grab a delightful coffee and scone at a local coffee shop with Mary one of the other Moms. A day well spent!

Birthday Dinner for Grandpa J January 10,2010

We hosted a birthday dinner in honor of Dad/Grandpa J. We were missing a few kids last night but overall had a great turn out. Once everyone had arrived we were able to sit down and enjoy our lovely dinner. I made Michelle's Dijon Chicken, with a recipe of Roasted potatoes, accompanied by a new recipe Easy Bake Vegetable Twist. Plates were cleaned translating to the dinner has turn out serve desert! I served two cakes one was a Cinnamon pull apart bread and the second was a Gram's Best Brown Sugar Cake, both items were well received and I would make them again.

Steak & Guinness Pie January 2,2010r

Our day was full of busy activity. One of our stops was by Grandma & Papa's place to return the truck which we had borrowed. Well one thing let to another, we were asked to stay for dinner. Darren had loosely mentioned that he was going to make a Steak & Guinness pie this week for dinner. We had a few more errands to do and when we returned we came to discover Grandma making Steak & Guinness Pie! YUMMY! We helped do some of the prep and then enjoyed a very delicious meal. This is a must try.
