A nice Sunday

We had a great day today. Daddy and Austin had some bonding time while mommy got to sleep in. Then we hung out around the house. Dave's parents came to visit and to see Austin. I tried a new recipe for dinner tonight. I think we over cooked it a little. It was mexican rice and chicken wraps. It was pretty good though for being a little dry. Here's the recipe:

2 cans of campbells chedar cheese soup
1 cup water
2 cups salsa
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken cubed
1 1/4 cup reg long grain rice.
Put all ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 7-8 hours. (We didn't have that much time so we put it on high and cooked for about 3 hours.)
Put rice mixture onto large tortilla wraps and enjoy.

We didn't quite have the 2lbs of chicken so instead we put in 2 cups of rice and 1 1/2 cups of water. I was worried it would be too watery but it thickened right up. I'm kind of excited to try new recipes. I think the next one might be the chicken parmesean that I've wanted to try forever (it has cream cheese and spinach in the middle of it.) Wish me luck!

Austin's coughing sneezing and running nose has gotten worse. Not too bad and thankfully he's not too grumpy about it. My heart becomes just a little sad though when he's trying to cough. I just want to teach him how to clear his throat. Poor guy. I hope it starts to clear up tomorrow!

Speaking of clearing up, I think it may be time it stopped snowing. We had no snow on our deck yesterday. Now there's a whole lot of it. I can't believe that it hasn't stopped in over 24 hours!!! I know, I know, I live in Canada, but come on!

  1. It's RSV season! Make sure you suck his boogers out so he can breath! Parents hate doing it, but I imagine a lot of kids would avoid hospitalization if they tried! And do NOT let him chew on grocery cart handles! :)
