The weekend went by really quick. I was not feeling 100% so I tried to stay home and out of the rain as much as I could. Yesterday I was in the mood for some soup so I made Albondigas with home made meatballs. It was delish if I do say so myself.
Buddy loved it.....
Buddy: This is good - does it have tomatoes in it?
Me: Yes, it has tomato sauce
Buddy: I thought so. I could taste the Cinco De Mayo
Me: (thinking) Cinco De Mayo, how can you taste Cinco De Mayo....
Me: Oh, you can taste Pico de Gallo.....
I love that boy so much!!!

She's OK - Thank you God - but she's a little shaken which is to be expected. She was on her way to school yesterday when she was rear ended. Her truck thankfully had little to no damage but his jeep was pretty crushed in the front. I'm so happy she wanted a truck for her first car.

She's my new KitchenAid Mixer I got for Christmas. I use her any chance I get - making biscuits, mashed potatoes, bread, etc. If the recipe says "Mix" - she's my go-to gal.
I've always heard about how much people loved their mixers but I didn't realize how helpful and handy they are until I was blessed with my very own on Christmas morning. I didn't ask for the Heavy Duty or the Artisan - I just wanted the simple Classic one. She's just perfect for me.
Last night we made some yummy (but too sweet for my liking) oatmeal butterscotch cookies.
Last night I also learned the J does not like butterscotch.... hmmm never knew this until he took a bite of the cookie and smiled trying not to make "that face".... Now I know...

I use it to clean my stove top, outside of the refrigerator, erase scuff marks left on your floor, clean the baseboards, scuff marks on your patio furniture, cabinets, and walls. I seriously walk around the house looking for something to clean when I have my eraser.
"It's like crack for cleaners"
My new found appreciation for Mr. Clean came when I was cleaning my kitchen sink and it just looked yuck - I reached for my eraser and it turned my sink bright white again.
Mr. Clean is my cleaning best friend.

Lately we have been going to the movies on Friday nights but this week not too much was out (that was kid friendly) so we just stayed in, rented movies and enjoyed our microwave popcorn.
BackI have been wanting to use my new KitchenAid. I cheated a bit with this cake but add orange zest and made a yummy orange glaze for the top. It was so good. Trader Joe's Vanilla cake is quick, easy and not really sweet.
We went to church and then I spent the rest of the day cleaning and watching football. Poor Peyton and Romo. I was happy for the Chargers though and for Brett!
Last night I made some yummy Cheesy Garlic Biscuits with chicken and broccoli. So good!!!
