Guiltiest Pleasure

I can say without a doubt, that these are my guiltiest pleasure! Mint Chocolate Tuffles. It makes me sad to think that my favorite chocolate foundry is in Sun Valley Idaho, and I will not be going this year. First time in 20 years. No one makes a mint truffle as good as the 'candy shop.' This week however, the ones from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory have done just fine!

Peepee Teepee

The other day I was at the maternity store with 
this pregnant girl ...

and we saw these ...

If she wasn't having two little girls, we probably would have purchased them because we thought they were so funny/creative!

Peas and Potatoes

Why is it that 

mixed with 

Plus some milk, flour, salt, and pepper make the BEST dinner ever?

Some things, I'll just never know.

A Little Bit of Lately

Friday night I did pulled pork sandwiches ...

I thought they were pretty good, but in the oh so tender words of Chase "they have too many vegetables." ... So there you have it. 

Saturday I decided to do breakfast, so what did I choose?

These little muffin's ... there were a couple that got eaten before I could take the picture! ... They all disappeared, so I took that as a good sign!

Today, because of the dreary weather we have been having, my mother suggested I go for some soup. 

...and it was seriously the best soup EVER! I was quite proud of it. Remi Mae helped me with it, so maybe she has the special touch or something... what ever it was, it was gooood! (oh, and it called for *minced* garlic... good thing I know what the word minced means :] ) ... If you would like the recipes for any of these, let me know! So worth it on the soup...

Also ... today is AUNT CELIAS BIRTHDAY! Happy Birthday Aunt C. :) LOVE YOU!

and ... DAD get's home tomorrow! I can't wait!

So ... I've decided to cook dinner for the family for the next little while! and I also decided I'm going to post a picture of it when it looks good! 

Tonight it looked good.

Penne Pasta with Chicken and Broccoli 

It also tasted good. Which was a perk! 

Considering the fact that I'm not a great chef, I feel alright being pretty pleased with this one!

I was looking through a genealogy book this morning and saw, what I thought was a weird coincidence. Please tell me I'm not the only one who sees this similarity?!
