New recipe-Pesto Pasta & Italian Chicken

Tonight we tried a new meal idea. We have recently tried pesto and have enjoyed it. Normally I just make a regular chicken with it and call it done. Colton had the idea to do a marinated Italian chicken with pesto pasta as a side. We thawed some chicken and only had two small pieces…

Adventures in Gardening- Part 2

For Easter I got myself some seeds to start my garden. I have been researching what to plant where and watching the sun for a while I’m the yard. Sadly I don’t have many spots of full sun that aren’t smack dab in the middle of the yard and I really don’t think the landlord…

Easter Weekend

We are just winding down our Easter Weekend here. I’ve got Hawk sleeping beside me, Colton playing his new game next to me, and Dave sleeping in the chair. We aren’t religious at all here so Easter is pretty chill. Mostly we do dinner and that’s about it. To me Easter isn’t about what it’s…

Make it Monday: Guacamole

I have never made guacamole before and I just recently tried the pre made stuff and quite enjoyed it. Aldi had avocados on sale for 49 cents each which is the best price I’ve seen for them. If you haven’t checked out Aldi what are you waiting for?! That’s a whole other long post for…
