A New Project Continued. . .

So. . .I also went to Michael's and found this stuff:
A crafty lady in my small group made a beautiful canvas art-scrapbooking picture. since I don't have the confidence that mine could look nearly as nice as hers, I opted for scrapbook frames. . .and we will see where that takes me. I keep you "posted!"

A New Project

Recently my husband and I decided to do some renovating--in our basement to make a playroom for the kiddos. He wasn't sold on the colour at first. I secretly think he likes it now, and just won't admit it. Here is how it turned out:

Since he has moved on to the leaky bathrooms in our house, I am moving on to the decorating part of it. I've done some labeling, but now it is time for pictures and stuff for the walls.

So I took a trip to Wal-Mart and found some square cork boards that are also magnetic. And a curtain rod and hooks to display art (yes, wait until you see it and it'll look okay!)

Pink Shirt Day 2009

Guess what I am wearing to school tomorrow? A Pink Shirt! It's not really my colour, but I am doing it to join all those other people across Canada who want to take a stand against bullying. Being a school teacher, yep, I have seen it happening every now and then. Do I like it? Not at all! There is some more information on this unique day here. Check it out. . .and search your closets to stand up for a good cause!

Menu Plan Monday

Yes, I have joined the thousands of other moms who post blogs with their menu plans! This is my trial run, so please show me a little grace! I'm working on creating links, so, no links this week. (BTW-for me it a report card writing week, so my meals are nothing to write home about!)

Monday-Dill-Crusted Sole Fillets, Alfredo Noodles, Carrots in ginger

Tuesday-Mini Cheddar Meat Loaves, Baked Potato, Beans (i can hear my kids getting excited about this veggie already! :~)

Wednesday-Chicken Fajitas (Celeste, we are trying your recipe!)

Thursday (Crock Pot Day)-Crock-Pot Chili with the fixings

Friday-Soup (either Potato Soup from Best of the Bridge or . . . )

Saturday--(Free Day! or leftovers)

Sunday--Breakfast for Supper--Dutch Boy Pancakes and Bacon

P.S. Tradition at our house says one crock pot day a week and Sundays are always Breakfast for Supper! Makes my hubby happy. And when the hubby is happy, the Honey-do list seems to get looked at more often. . . :)

So here is my one recipe for you: (i can't credit it because i have no idea where is came from! somewhere amidst my old recipe cards)

Sole Fillets
1/2 lb sole fillets (you can use other types of fish: cod, halibut)
1T. mayo
1/4 t.salt
1/4 t. group pepper
1 slice whole wheat bread-toasted
1 clove garlic
2 t. butter
2T chopped fresh
1 t. lemon zests-grated

Preheat oven to 450F. Spray an 8" baking dish. Pat fish dry. Spread mayo on the board side of each fillet & season with salt and pepper. Make crumbs out of toast. Add garlic, butter, dill, and lemon. Sprinkle crumb mixture on fillets, then fold the narrow end over to form a roll. Place in pan and bake in pre-heated oven for 10 minutes. Serves 2-4.
Serve with rice, pan-fried veggies, and lemon wedges.

Ah. . .I have entered the world of blogging!
Since I have quite an obsession with searching other blogs, I figured i better waste my time trying to be productive on a blog of my own! I'll keep you posted on how this all goes!
