Visit to Chris and Michelle's House

Nathan, Natalie and Blake

Evan and Mommy



Enjoying his dinner!

We went to visit Brian's brother and family for the weekend. It's nice being so close, even if for a short time. We had a wonderful time and the kids played so well together. Thanks for all the yummy meals and good talks. We had a blast!!

Natalie and Allie... cute cousins!

Blake carried that movie the whole weekend.



Daddy and Natalie-- what a wonderful weekend! :)

Back home... cooking day!
As well as cooking up some ground beef and chicken for recipes and a few meals to freeze, we tried some new things. We made homemade oatmeal packets that were easy and turned out great and some homemade granola which we're loving on yogurt. (Click the links for the recipes.)

I tried to make homemade hot pockets since Brian loves them for lunches after classes but they did not turn out well-way too doughy. We often make tortilla pizzas so I decided to make up a bunch up to freeze and it works great! Brian can just pull out a couple and broil for a few minutes. Easy! (Just assemble sauce and cheese and whatever toppings on a tortilla. Freeze individually on cookie sheets and then stack on top of each other in a ziplock bag and keep in the freezer.)
I'd love to hear your quick kitchen tips that work for you! :)
