Happy Halloween 2009

The kids had fun dressing up for Halloween. Ellie's costumes include a palm tree with a monkey on it, a fairy alligator, and a fairy. Mom just likes to dress her up, and Ellie seems to like it too. She's just so cute! Mikey just had a cool hat from Grandma Lolly and Lexi was a Disney princess. Mom and Dad were too tired to dress up after ripping up the dining room carpet and scrubbing the hard wood floors on Friday.

Hungry Girl's Chinese Salad

Today I made this salad and it was so good.

Hungry Girl's 200 Under 200
Scoopable Chinese Chicken Salad


One 16-ounce package of dry broccoli slaw mix
12 ounces cooked skinless lean chicken breast, chopped
1 cup canned water chestnuts, drained and sliced into thin strips
1 cup canned mandarin orange segments, drained and chopped
1 cup chopped scallions
3/4 cup Newman's Own Lighten Up! Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing (Soooo Goood!)


In a large bowl, toss all of the ingredients together and mix well.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Stir well before serving. Enjoy!

I didn't wait to refrigerate and it was just as good. Brian liked it as well. I am not so sure about Alexis because she isn't feeling well. I checked out this cookbook from the library. There were too many recipes that I wanted to try so I bought a copy.

Mikey at one month

It has been a crazy month. Lots of adjusting and such. It is amazing how much Michael has grown. The best way to show it is with these two pictures. The first was taken the day he came home from the hospital and the next at one month.
