Menu Monday and My Momma's Coming



I'm uber lazy this week. I've only made it through Wed. night's dinner. You see my AWESOME little momma is coming to stay for the week and she is pickier than any child you know. Half the time she turns her nose up at everything...and guess what...sometimes she hasn't even tried it yet. So I've left a few days open for change!

Tonight? A little pan fried breaded chicken...with melted parm cheese on top of a bed of angel hair w/some sauce. Oh and garlic bread...we can never forget that in our house!
(Yes I went easy tonight)

The kids are super excited to get her for a week...Me too...I'm seeing a Mani/Pedi in my future!!!

Looking for something to do w/the kids today? Whip this Fun Dough up in secs
Use any color of food coloring paste to create a rainbow of gifts.



Prep Time: 20 minutes
Yield: Makes about 2 1/2 cups nonedible dough
Ingredients

* 1/2 to 3/4 cup warm water, divided
* 1 teaspoon white vinegar

* 1 cup salt

2. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Slowly stir in water mixture with a wooden spoon until a stiff dough forms, adding up to 1/4 cup more water, if necessary. Knead until smooth and workable. Divide dough into portions, and add desired amount of food coloring paste. Shape dough portions into blocks. Store in refrigerator in a zip-top plastic bag.

Just a note--made the chicken farfalle last night, and my hubby asked how hard it was to make because he loved it. Definitely on my favorites list now! Plus, we had fresh cherry tomatoes out of the garden.
