It's Kids Night Out - we made pizza for the girls to take along. Peperoni, sausage, kalamata olives, and sauce (from Trader Joe's)
Kids Night Out - the first one this school year. Yes, I am not kidding :))) Both girls were so excited and we did make pizza again, just like we did last school year. Well, but I do have to admit that this time I bought the dough at New Seasons - I ran out of Olive Oil!!! - it still was fun. A jar of Trader Joe's Olive Oil, pepperoni, kalamata olives, and sausage. Sometimes we top the pizza with Parmeseano Regiano, Alena however told me "I do not like cheese on pizza". So it was a cheese less delicious pizza, and it was baked to perfection at school :)))

Woohoo what a great start into this Wednesday morning. - It is not an everyday occurence that Alena finishes her entire breakfast. Quite offen it is more like "pulling teeth"....I am so happy when they eat so well in the morning to recharge their batteries. The school day is long and they only have about 15 minutes to eat, or otherwise there is no time to go to the playground....
Alright, better get some work done - Happy Wednesday to all :)))

Our Easter Ham was delicious this year, and large enough for three dinners - well, inclusive Easter. Last night it was fried ham "steak" with sweet potatoes and salad. Tonight I made the rest of it as a soup, with navy beans, sauteed onions and carrotts, and tomatoes. Served up with thick slices of crusty bread it was fantastic.
Alena loved it - she loves all beans and much perfers them over any type of meat, well sausage being the only exception ;)

I am so so proud of the bunny biscuits. Are they not cute?! This is the first time this Mama has made biscuits :) I used Earth Balance instead of Butter, and plain soy creamer instead of cream. They tasted delicious and looked pretty cute ;). - We served a salad with warm mushrooms along the bunnies for an appetizer. For the main meal we feasted on bunnies, ham, mashed potatoes, and roasted asparagus.

The principal actually called me over Labor Day weekend right before school started to assure us that we would not have to worry. The plan was set and everyone went above and beyond to make sure that no mistakes will happen. We put Cuties as well as pop-sickles in the "special" freezer in the teacher lounge with Alena's name on it. Whenever there is a party her teacher goes to the freezer to get Alena her treat. So now, of course I somehow feel like a fool for having had such worries...but I guess that is just what Mama's do :)
Have a great Wednesday everyone...and thank you for reading :)
