First of all: The doctor called me this morning and everything came back great except one pesky little thing. The endocrinologist thought it was no big deal but did want to test her again at one year. So in three months we get to do testing all over again. You'll excuse me for not squealing with glee. In the meantime, Kendall gets to eat everything with a pat of butter and a mozzarella stick. Otherwise known as, "Mommy's diet." Thanks for all the comments and emails...it means more than you know.
Second of all: I made almost an entire chocolate sheet cake today while the kids were taking a nap. It was a very satisfying experience until Cason woke up while I was making the icing. He was in his usual wonderful-just-waking-up mood. Seriously, I don't know where he gets his bad attitude from. So to keep him quiet while I finished icing the cake, I gave him a spoonful of icing. Oh shut up, it was a little spoon.
Third of all: Ok, here's the recipe for Hawaiian Chicken. No, Angela, it will not be Pioneer Woman like. Sorry, no pictures. But just know that this is the easiest, yummiest chicken.
1 jar of apricot preserves
10 oz. Thousand Island dressing
1 envelope of Lipton onion soup mix
Salt and pepper the chicken. Mix the preserves, dressing and soup mix all together and pour over chicken. You can cook it in the crockpot or you can put it in the oven on 350 degrees COVERED for two hours. Make sure you cover it though. I forgot to do this once, and it was nice and...uh...blackened. Also, a warning: when you mix the stuff together, it looks gross but when it cooks, it makes a yummy glaze. Serve it over rice.
Fourth of all: This happened minutes ago while I was typing. That is a new bag of goldfish that I just opened. All of it. Now you know why we hate leaving the house. What do you think the odds are that he will clean it up on his own?
