Today was a relaxing day. It was a lot easier to relax since tomorrow I have a retreat instead of 6 classes of 5th and 6th graders. But, tomorrow night, I will be doing lots of work to make up for my relaxation today.
One of the best parts about no school on Monday is that it is a 4 day work week AND I get to miss my least favorite duty, which is cafeteria duty for the 5th and 6th graders. It’s not even that hard, it’s just loud and during lunch. ha ha.
I took my niece to the zoo yesterday, and I have lots of cute pictures that I will share tomorrow. I can’t find the attachment kit that my brother bought me to connect my camera to the iPad. But, rest assured, when I do, you will see the cutest 7 year old at the Columbus Zoo yesterday.
Today, my husband I had the last of the Beef Stew, and there wasn’t quite enough to make 2 servings, so I made pasta shells to add to it to bulk it up. That was what the original recipe called for, but I didn’t add it because I added potatoes instead.
It was delicious with the pasta shells and VERY filling.
Here’s a picture:
Then, we went too my mom’s for dinner…chili, pork chops, sweet potatoes, salad….yum.
And for dessert, delicious angel food cake with crushed pineapples added to the recipe, and about 3/4 of an inch of cool whip as icing/frosting. I ate way too much of that cake with some low fat Turkey Hill vanilla bean ice cream.
Then, we played a heated game of Apples to Apples, and now I am at home on the couch watching my DVR while our dog stinks us out of the living room with her sour stomach.
Have a good start to the week tomorrow, everybody!!
