Our weekend started out at my favorite place...the pool! Back before we moved to Georgia, little Sydney was praying that our next house would have a swimming pool. Little did we know at the time, but we were about to be blessed with a home that would have, not one pool, but TWO. God answered the prayers of a little girl longing for a swimming pool by blessing us with access to two gorgeous pools in our subdivision. We have had a blast swimming in both pools all summer, and we are so grateful to the Lord for His provision! It helped make moving to a new area, a lot less scary and much more fun.
After some fun in the sun, we took a trip to the library for books, DVDs, and Wii games.
The kids and I are big fans of trail mix but not fans of raisins, so we decided to make up our own bag of raisin free trail mix.
I can't keep enough index cards in the house! They are indispensable! I use them to make homemade math flashcards, vocabulary game reviews, to write "to do" lists on, prayer requests, chore cards, art projects and the list goes on and on. I had to make another run to Dollar General for more cards and to my horror, they only had one pack left. So, needless to say, I bought the last pack! I hope they stock up soon because I'll be out of these in a week or two! :D
I tried making salmon cakes without any carbs. I have made them using bread crumbs, and even with oatmeal for a healthier alternative, but this time I left out the carb altogether. It worked out pretty well. I just added a little red onion, broccoli, parsley and one whole egg, formed them into patties and fried them. The carbs weren't even missed!
For a special Saturday morning breakfast for the kids I wanted to make cinnamon sugar toast, but then... I wondered... what would brown sugar cinnamon waffles be like? Well let me be the first to say, they are pretty fantastic!! It wasn't even necessary to drizzle syrup over them. They were yummy enough with a little sprinkle of powered sugar to finish them off.
Wow, after leafing through the Saturday morning paper, I have a sneaking suspicion that people in Georgia take their football pretty seriously. I guess football is the only newsworthy topic around here! :D So much for our current event project this week! :)
I think this might be enough vegetables to make a salad fit for my father! He makes fun of me for making plain, boring salads...pretty much just lettuce in a bowl. :D Well, not today! I have a whole garden in my kitchen to use for salads.
After chopping, slicing and dicing, rinsing, marinating chicken for about an hour or so...my bright, colorful, nutritious chicken salad is complete.
I am looking forward to tomorrow. Clint is going to make his version of stuffed french toast for breakfast and for supper he is planning to make meatballs and homemade pasta with salad and breadsticks.
