First weekend of 2013

It’s been a very uneventful weekend, but a good one.  We spent Saturday hanging out at the house.  It sounded so nice, but we almost got bored….we’re so used to being out and about on the weekends.   I did treat myself to a mani-pedi in the afternoon which was badly needed.   SJ’s into everything these days.  We often refer to her as the “tornado”.  She messes with everything in her path and leaves us to clean up behind her.  We are enjoying her so much.  It’s so much fun just to sit and watch her.  We’re trying to soak up every little minute of her, it goes by so fast.  Its hard not to be sad at her growing up, but we’re so thankful that she is healthy and growing as she should.  She’s such a precious girl.


Sunday morning we headed to church. Sj’s had a little separation anxiety the past few weeks.   We leave her in the nursery for a while by herself and then D or I will go in and stay with her for the rest of the time.  This morning she cried for a while… sad.  I hope that she’ll get used to being in the nursery soon.

After church, we came home for SJ’s morning nap.   After she woke up, we tried the new Genghis Grill.  We’ve been to one before in Nashville….it was very good! We walked around the shopping center a little, got some yogurt. It’s days like these, just being together as a family that are so nice.  Feeling so blessed.

I had some work to get done, so I went on campus while SJ took her afternoon nap.  For dinner, we attempted a new recipe….we’ve been wanting to try our own version of Mellow Mushroom Buffalo Chicken pizza! Tonight, for Downton Day (LOVE Downton Abbey!), we did.  It ended up so good!!



Buffalo Chicken Pizza (Mellow Mushroom replica)


Chicken:  3 or 4 big chicken breasts (I used 6 boneless/skinless thighs).  Put them in the crockpot and cover with a bottle of Buffalo sauce and a ranch dressing mix pack. Stir. Cook in the crockpot for 6-7 hours on low.  Shred the chicken and leave it in for another 45 min-hour

After the chicken is cooked and the dough is laid  out on the pan, spread the chicken and some of the sauce on the crust.  Sprinkle mozzarrella cheese over the top of the chicken (about a cup).  On top of the cheese, spread sauteed onions and cut up cooked bacon (we did this in a saute pan).  Top with another small sprinkle of cheese and a drizzle of buffalo sauce and ranch dressing.

One or two slices of this is enough….oh so good!
