Foods, Crafts, Super A

I couldn’t think of a better name for this post, so there you go. As you may have noticed my one week of meals has gone by the wayside. With being sick at dinner almost every night for the past month, it doesn’t make you feel much like blogging about dinner. In the fall I am planning to pick back up our Monday Night Dinners, so stay tuned! To tide you over here are a few recipes we have made lately that are soooo good!

Fly Through Our Window’s Sweet Crunchy Dills

I love this recipe. My sister and her husband made them last year and I made them this year (they provided the cucumbers from a family friend). They remind me of the cucumbers and vinegar dish my Grampie used to make when I was little. So yummy!

The Pioneer Woman’s Simple Perfect Enchiladas

I liked this recipe because it is a slightly different take on the beef enchiladas my family makes. I used flour tortillas instead of corn because for some reason corn tortillas did not sound appetizing in my pregnancy brain. Who knows! Which means I did not dip them in the sauce I just ladled a tiny bit of sauce in the center of each tortilla. This took a couple of tries to get it not to spill, but worked really well.

Okay on to crafts. I have not done that many crafts this summer, I am still trying to get around to sealing a painting project I started back in April. However check out some of these terrific craft projects I have seen lately:

Tales of a Peanut’s Bow Holder

Such a cute idea! As a former owner of many, many bows (many of which my Mom made for my sister and I), I love this.

Under the Sycamore’s Paper Bird Painting

I actually use this as an example in my class of showing steps throw visual aids if you don’t have time to do the steps in front of the class. I don’t think I’ve ever posted it, but I have talked about it so many times I think I’m actually going to make it this fall.

Finally a little of Super A for the fam:

Working on his bike riding skills.

Super A had his first orientation for preschool today. I can hardly believe that he is beginning a whole new adventure of preschool, and while I’m not sure if he will like me leaving him at first, I think it’s going to be a great opportunity for him to learn all new things! One of the most important things Super A learned this summer was potty training. We have successfully accomplished potty training this summer, and I was one proud Mama to tell his teacher that he did not have to work on potty training! It was a long road, but one weekend everything seemed to click, and A has done great. That’s all for now!
