It's Monday! Get Organized!

It’s is time for Menu Planning Monday! We are still running crazy around here with practices and meetings so our menu is simple and sweet.

Sunday: Fish Sandwiches and sautéed asparagus (I used grouper. They were breaded and pan fried.

Monday: Crust-less Quiche, Oven roasted broccoli. This I made this quiche last weekend and froze it. It really comes together more like a breakfast casserole – cubed bread, 6 eggs or so, a little milk, cheese and ham or sausage, cooked. The key to it tasting “not-frozen” is to freeze it unbaked. Thaw, then top with cheese and bake. You would never know it was prepared ahead of time.


How to Fold Towel Animals

My in-laws just returned from vacation. We all know that vacations breed tons of photos. As I was jealously looking through their photos, I noticed the cute towel animals. I always see these when we go on vacation and say I am going to find out how to make them... I always forget. Now, with no unpacking to do from that vacation.. hehe... I thought to look up instructions. My daughter is just delighted with my new found talent. My son, who isn't home right now, has a surprise waiting on the bathroom counter. I now realize my need for a few white towels ;)

Here are some great links for making your own towel animals...

It is time to get rid of this baby fat!

After my 2nd child, I hit the South Beach diet pretty hard. I lost the weight from baby number 2, baby number 1, AND those few pounds I had gained after the wedding... a whopping 70 lb. difference! Of course, as soon as I lost it all, I found out surprise number 3 was on his way!

Now that he is here, it is time to get rid of all the fat clothes again!
I thought this might give me a chance to share some of my favorite Southbeach Diet Recipes.  This is one of my favorites. It is super easy too ;)

Chicken Capri
Phase 1

  • 1 cup ricotta, skim
  • 1/2 tsp ground oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 4 breasts, bone and skin removed chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsps virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped or sliced tomatoes
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese


In a blender or food processor, combine the ricotta with the oregano, salt, and pepper. Process to blend. Set aside.

Rub the chicken with the garlic powder. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 12 minutes per side. Place the chicken breasts, side by side, in a large baking dish and allow to cool.

Preheat the oven to 350° F (180° C).

Spoon 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture and 1/4 cup tomatoes onto each chicken breast. Top each chicken breast with 1 slice mozzarella.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion of a breast registers 170° F (75° C) and the juices run clear.

This recipe is from the South Beach diet cookbook. YUM!!!!

I just typed like half a page of funny little tidbits fromo the day and it went away! CRUD! So short and sweet, here is part 2 of my spring collection with about 4 more still not photographed.
I was really inspired this time around and was in a sewing frenzy for our BOUTIQUE WILD CHILD spring launch.
I must have over 200 yards of fabric in my living room as we speak. My sewing studio in the addition is nearly done, but neither Ruben nor I seem to interested in texuting, painting and flooring at this point. So close yet so far away!
So here is about 1/2 of my fabric right smack dab in the middle of my hosue staring me down everyday. I chose to either embrace the yardage I've put to the wayside, or chuck it into the fire place.
I opted for the first and came up with a wide variety of stuff.
In my next post I will be celebrating someone very dear to my heart, stay tuned!
