So 'nesting' is going pretty well...going through each room and cleaning and organizing pretty good. I'm not sure if I can blame it totally on the 'nesting' or the fact that my mom is coming to be with us for a week. :)
1 on 1 time with "Z-Man" trying to get as much time with just him and me...going to the library, watching movies, going to the park, going to the zoo, going to play areas in the malls, playing on the ground with him, reading books, just laughing with him and having a lot of fun with my little snuggly 2 year old!
Knitting the Baby Girl's Blanket! I just started a block and have 7 of them to go! See pic BEFORE I started the block. I'm LOVIN' it...however I'm pretty sure the next one of these blankets I make is going to be for someone special!!! It's really not a fast project. :)A new meal...here is what I made tonight for me and "Z-Man" We both had second helpings which is pretty cool.
Super-Cheesy Crazy-EZ Shepherd's Pie
One 24-oz. bag (about 6 cups) frozen Green Giant Family Size Broccoli, Carrots, Cauliflower & Cheese Sauce
1 pouch Betty Crocker Cheddar & Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes
2 cups frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like the kind by Boca or Morningstar Farms)
Optional: salt, black pepper, additional spices
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place contents of the veggies & sauce bag in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 8 - 10 minutes, until mostly thawed.
Meanwhile, in a medium-large bowl, combine contents of potato pouch with 2 cups hot water, and stir until thickened. Set aside.
Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray. Add soy crumbles to the pan and evenly distribute along the bottom. Evenly spoon saucy vegetables over the soy crumbles. Evenly top with potato mixture, using a spatula or spoon to smooth out the surface.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until filling is hot and potato layer is slightly crispy.
Divide into sixths. If you like, season to taste with salt, pepper, and additional spices. Enjoy!
