Why be like everyone else when you can be yourself?

Amateur Hour

So, this weekend I got to play my  French horn in a talent show. It was the first time I had performed since my son was born nearly five years ago. And I have two degrees in music performance. It was long over due. It was lovely. It was great. The kid who has played with the Moscow Orchestra and Aspen Music Festival totally stole our thunder. (I kid Рhe was awesome!)

After I played I sat to watch and Munchkin was playing games on my iphone. I got a text message so I went to clear it and he says REALLY loud “No mommy! Don’t take it away! I’m playing Angry Birds!” Nice.

Anywho, I got to meet CBear’s mom for the first time, so of course I had to cook a yummy meal for her, CBear, and my aunt and uncle. It was an All Recipe Extravaganza!

For Dinner:

Taco Casserole

Honey Cornbread

– Salad

Spiced Baked Apples served with ice cream and whipped topping

For the Taco Casserole I substituted the beef for half a bag of veggie burger crumbles and a drained can of black beans and just a bit of cayenne pepper. You know, since I’m a veggie. It was yummy and very homey feeling. I think next time I may add a can of corn, or even some hot peppers. And even better, the whole dinner was pretty cheap to make.

I think the best part about making yummy dinner, is you have a yummy lunch the next day. ALWAYS make extra.

To infinity and beyond!

So, the other day I was picking up Munchkin from school. He recently had gotten a new robot toy, and was telling me all about it.

Me: Hey, why don’t we go for a walk with Riley when we get home? You can bring your robot.

M: But he might break!

Me: True, but remember your Buzz Lightyear? You’ve dropped him a million times and he’s still in one piece.

M: Yeah, he is!!!! And he even says it in his movie!!! “Greetings. I am Buzz Lightyear. I come in piece!”

Ahahahhahahaahaha! Kids are great.
