SuperBowl Sunday

This was a fun filled weekend with all the preparing for the Super Bowl!! Now, I'm not a football fan, although I am considering picking a team and being more involved next year :)  It was fun watching the game!!

This was a great way to spend time as a family, my kids were actually sitting with us and not locked up in their rooms, so it made it that much better! My daughter's favorite part was when the Black Eyed Peas came out to sing, now I know they got bad reviews, but I honestly don't care.  We are all big fans of Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas and we loved their show!

The only thing that was a bit of a fail was the food!  I was avoiding cooking (regretting it now) so we ordered take out from Chili's restaurant.  We used to eat there all the time, but they stopped making the Chicken tacos I loved, so we haven't been going as much.  Now we decided to order Quesadillas for each of us and the Triple Decker appetizer with the Big Mouth bites, cheese sticks and the spinach & artichoke dip with chips.  The quesadillas were loaded up with jalapenos, OMG!! They were so spicy, I cleaned it out--LOL, took out all onions & jalapenos, and was able to eat mine.  My husband did the same thing and ate his.  My son, on the other hand, wasn't so lucky.  His were a bit more spicy & he really couldn't take it!! So, he ate 1 of the 2 big mouth bite burgers and some cheese sticks! My daughter was good, hers were just cheese so she really enjoyed her food!! So now I know that quesadillas from chili's are a no-no for us :( what a shame!

It was a good weekend, but now its back to the norm!  Kids are back in school and I'm back to cleaning house and looking for a job.  I'm also trying to finish my book Naturally Thin by Bethanny Frankel, I'm halfway through.

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
