Here some quick thoughts from the short week....
*Check out Ruffles Light potato chips...they are FAT FREE and delicious!
*Took all three kids to the grocery store...and only came away with a box of donuts (besides what was on the list).
*My boys have decided to sleep on the floor from now on...with sleeping caps.
*My 4yo wrote, directed, and performed his first show for us....Spot and was a musical and wonderful.
*My children have been favoring MC Hammer lately...complete with Hammer dance.
*Last trip to the pool on was great (and hot!).
*Soccer season starts on Saturday...Go Green!!
*Wish I could watch Illini, hoo.
*Creamed spinach* is it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
*Bad days at school can be cured with a hug and an ice cream cone.
*Took a spin class for the first time.....sore but not sorry.
*Desperately waiting for the new TV season to start (but did watch a great PBS program on giant pumpkin farmers).
*Watched Yo Gabba Gabba...what is this crazy show?

Have a great weekend!!

Creamed Spinach
2 boxes of frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium carrot, chopped fine
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 cup cream
1/4-1/2 cup Italian blend cheese
1 tablespoon each butter and olive oil
salt and pepper

In medium pan, heat butter and oil. Add onions and carrots. Cook 5 mins. Add spinach and garlic. Cook 2 mins. Add salt and pepper. Add cream. Bring to a bubble and turn heat down to a low simmer. Cook 5 mins until cream is reduced and thick. Add cheese. Taste for seasoning.

Can be made ahead of time! Tastes great the next day on eggs! And the kids will eat it!

I watched gabba one time and was trying to find a way to block it so it could never be shown on my television again!!!!

It's yo gabba crap! Seems like someone on an acid trip came up with the idea. Unfortunately we watched an entire episode and my daughter has asked for it.
