Ever have one of those days?

I didn't really have a bad day...this is the way Kitty Joe really sleeps....and it's too cute, dontcha think?

Our animals are so darn cute....they are spoiled and get away with all sorts of naughty stuff.....kind of like our KIDS!!

Missouri weather is so freaky--I guess that is ONE claim to fame that Missouri's ever changing weather patterns. For instance, it was in the low 70's on Saturday, it was in the HIGH 70's on Sunday...sunny both 1 am this morning, our bedroom window was open and it was 60 degrees and threatning rain. Mother Nature provided the light and sound show. By 5 am it was in the 30's and we are CURRENTLY under a Winter Weather Advisory. Go figure. According to the local Meteorologist, we may miss the worst of the snowy weather. Let's hope. But, if the pattern changes course, we could see 5 + inches of snow.

Does anyone else love Scott Baio is 46 and Pregnant? I've read some online forums and the girls are all "He is such a heel.....he needs to get with the program" yada yada yada. But as we MOM'S know, he's just being honest...he's struggling with parenthood, and despite the fact he's making reality tv out of it, it seems real to me on most fronts.......and he's still cute in a former child star sort of way. When I was about 12, I had pages ripped from the centerfold of 'Teen Beat' and 'Tiger Beat' magazines of Scott Baio...and Leif Garrett, and Shaun parents took one wall in my room and stuck cork squares to it and made me a HUGE bulletin board for all my pre-teen treasures. Man, the late 70's and early 80's were so cool.....bulletin board walls, and glass/chrome furniture.

Well, TV stinks tonight, so we'll be watching the weather either hit or miss us on the Weather Channel, and try to find some interesting drivel to watch........

Oh, dinner was the Chicken Scallopini that they Hy-Vee lady gave us the recipe for yesterday morning. It was really good. Here's her recipe:

4 boneless skineless chicken breasts pounded flat
2 Shallots (finely chopped)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1/2 c Dry white wine
14 oz can seasoned chicken broth (garlic flavor)
1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
Flat leaf parsley for garnish
Olive oil (coat bottom of pan...enough to saute chicken)

Dredge the chicken in flour. Saute in pan w/ olive oil until browned and cooked thoroughly. Remove chicken from pan. Brown the shallots and garlic. Add wine and chicken broth. Let liquid reduce by half. Add in cream and bring to a gentle simmer. Add chicken to the sauce to warm through. Garnish w/ parsley. Optional: serve over pasta.

It was sooo good. We just took the fabulous take-n-bake bread that Hy-Vee sells and sopped up the sauce with that. MMMMMMMM...we had steamed asparagus with it (the guys all had salad too). This recipe is a keeper

Thanks Hy-Vee for having the fabulous sample and recipe........

We must live very close to each other. We are under the same weather advisory, looking to get 6-7 inches!
