Addison's First Circus

The last day we were in Nebraska Nana treated Addison to an early birthday present by taking her to her 1st Circus. Addison was so excited and her love for horses mirrors mine as a child. The only thing Addison wanted to do was the pony rides. We arrived an hour early to ensure she'd have plenty of time for this and even stayed after the show for one more ride :-)

Like I mentioned in Monday's post...please don't mind the horribly blurry pics my point and shoot produces :-(

Tasty Tuesday: Bacon, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Cups

Another highly recommended Pinterest Recipe. This was really easy to make and tasted great. The only adjustment I suggest is to add more salt/pepper to the eggs or even throw in some onion and peppers to flavor the eggs a little bit.

Nebraska 2012

A couple weeks ago the kids and I flew back to Nebraska for my grandmother's funeral. My grandmother had battled Alzheimmer's for over 10 years. She was such a fun grandma growing up. She spoiled us rotten and we always loved her cooking. She had a fiery personality and never met a stranger. RIP Grandma.

The anticipation of flying with two kids was worse than the outcome of my little travelers. The flight to Nebraska was a night flight so Enzo slept the entire 3 hours in my arms. Addison was awake the first 2 hours of the flight asking questions, looking at the seat back safety guides and magazines, looking out the window to see "Christmas Lights" and hamming it up for the flight attendant. The flight back to Florida was about the same. Enzo slept the entire flight. This time I handed him off to Papa to hold. I brought lots of snacks and activities (thanks Pinterest for busy bag ideas) for Addison to occupy her. There was a 5 year old girl and her Mother sitting behind us that Addison made friends with. The mother even traded seats with Addison and the two girls played together for over an hour of the flight. There is nothing better than kind strangers!

We spent a week in Nebraska and the time flew by. There were many things to do and although I wish I had more time to visit friends while back, family takes precedence.

The pictures below were taken by my Point and Shoot. I didn't feel like packing my DSLR since I only had a few hours to pack before we left. Packing for myself and 2 kids was a project in itself. I'm really disappointed in my Point and Shoot camera and will be looking for a new one. I can't believe how blurry and unfocused the photos are...ugh!!

Tasty Tuesday: Foil-Pack Chicken & Artichoke Dinner

Thank you Pinterest for another great recipe!! Addison said "Mommy, this chicken is yummy"

Foil-Pack Chicken & Artichoke Dinner
Recipe and Image Source


Ingredients:


3 cups instant white rice, uncooked
3 cups warm water
6 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 lb.), 1/2 inch thick
1 can (13-3/4 oz.) artichoke hearts, drained, quartered
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
1/4 cup pesto

Directions:


HEAT oven to 400°F.

MIX rice and water; spoon onto centers of 6 large sheets heavy-duty foil. Top with chicken, artichokes and tomatoes; drizzle with combined dressing and pesto.

BRING up foil sides. Double fold top and both ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place in 15x10x1-inch pan.

BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until chicken is done (165°F). Remove packets from oven; let stand 5 min. Cut slits in foil with sharp knife to release steam before opening.
