They always screw you at the drive thru

Last night we ordered out from Chilis. Got screwed. I was so excited to get a hamburger! It had NOTHING on it. No lettuce, no tomato, no onion. It was meat, cheese and bread? I paid $8 for that? Insane! They shorted Andy on the fajitas. They had like 4 pounds of onions and barely ANY fajita meat. It was beyond disappointing.

Then today, I'm wanting some nachoes (craving Mexican)... so we went to Taco Bell. In the drive thru, they didn't give me my change... they had no cheese pizza (we went to one of those combo Pizza Hut/Taco Bells) and then when I got home, I had no taco! Couple that with the fact that the chips smelled and tasted liek they were covered with soem sort of chemical and it's proof positive that we're 0-2 for successful drive-thru missions.

I think it's a sign to get off my lazy butt and get in the kitchen.

Back from Disney

We arrived back from Disney last night about 8:10 p.m. but didn't get home until about 9:30. They lost our bags. UGH. However, they were delivered here at home about 5 minutes ago (10:45 a.m.)

Drew is now happily playing with his potato head assortment... oh how wonderful it must be to be so easily amused. Now, for me, it's a MOUNTAIN of laundry and back to life as usual... AND catching up with you all on what we've done and accomplished this month. :)

Hoop Dee Doo

For Andy's birthday we went to the Hoop Dee Doo musical revue. It's a dinner show that has the best fried chicken, ribs and mashed potatoes! YUM. Drew got on stage and here are a couple of vids -- one is very out of focus because the camera was running out of batteries -- the second is at the end where he took his bow! :)

New school year begins

I have to upload my photos (bad mommy) of Drew's first day last week. :) It's confusing for him becuase we're calling this his "kindergarten" where, in reality, he's going to skip kindergarten all together. He will leave his current school and go to a D-1 course (Developmental First) so this IS kind of like his K level courses. :) I know he'll do fine. The kid is bright!

Josh started classes yesterday. We're using an eclectic approach to school this year and have a combined curriculum from many places. In a way it's a headache but I feel that the areas that I differed from each curriculum, I'm giving him the best of what they all have to offer.

Seventeen days and we leave for the mouse house! WOO HOO

I didn't post my Menu Plan Monday BUT I will post what I'm making tonight! :) Im making a new recipe that I threw together! Ha! I got chicken breasts and cut them into tenders and covered both sides with about 3/4 of a package of mild taco seasoning. Then, I covered all of the strips with a jar of medium pace picaunte sauce (yum!) I just put foil on it and put it in the oven. I will serve it over a bed of Spanish rice mixed with a little corn and black beans that have had pico de gallo stirred in (another, YUM). I also just threw together some Mexican cornbread. I say "threw together" because, I have no idea how to make this stuff! I just wanted some. Call it a craving. :) LOL... I used a couple of boxes of jiffy corn mix, a couple eggs, 2/3 cup milk, some canned green chilis, some canned corn (don't have cream corn which is what you typically use), and some sugar. I guess we'll see how it turns out. LOL... But hey, even if it's bad... I bet it's still good...cornbread and green chilis... you can't go wrong there! :)

Mary, how's Vegas? Christa, you gonna come see me in Disney? Felecia, how ya feeling?
