Saturday with the Family


Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a great Saturday.  Today we have been both lazy and hectic at my house.  My brother and his wife Kisha from The Not So Glamorous French Housewife are in town visiting.  Scotts daughter Laura is graduating college Monday so they are in town making the most of it.  So today we went to the store and got flowers for mother's day since Scott hadn't been to the gravesite and we visited with our mom and my daughter Heather for a few minutes before it started to rain on us.  Scott said it was by chance that it rained on us....lol....that is just how our mom is when things got down or depressing she would always find a way to turn it around.  We had a few minutes to share with each other while we were there.  It doesn't seem like it has been 6 years but it has.  Time has flown by and it is hard to believe.

So tonight after they are done visiting with other relatives they are coming back here where I am fixing them Chicken Cordon Bleu with green bean casserole and mashed potatoes for dinner and a cheesecake for dessert.  I got the recipe from Christy Denney over at The Girl Who Ate Everything and man was it simple and delicious.  My sister-in-law took pics of dinner and I totally didn't because as usual I was running late with everything.  But it was just enough to feed the 6 of us and no leftovers.



Now obviously this isn't my picture I got it again from Christy Denney's blog where she gives excellent step by step instruction on how to make this wonderful delicious dish.  Man was it really super easy to do.  Not to mention the sauce that she gives directions for is amazing.  Everyone loved it and I was so happy and yet sad because there wasn't any left overs.  Now it says it yields 6 servings but I doubled the recipe because I was feeding 6 adults and I am glad that I did because if not then there wouldn't have been enough for us all to eat.

Kisha did get a pic of me and the kids with my brother which I wish I would of had her send me but I will put it up on another post soon.  But today was a busy day for them and honestly I was just glad to be able to spend time with them.  They didn't even eat the cheesecake they were so full but that is ok because that is one of my weaknesses so I will have some here in a bit with my coffee that my daughter made for us.

Hope everyone has a great evening and we will talk to you all later.  Happy Mother's day to all you mom's and dad moms as well.
