Yummy Recipe

Have I mentioned that I love to cook. Well....I do. My mother-in-law and I are always trying to come up with something yummy to make. We're already getting our poolside menu together for the summer :)

Well, tonight I made one of Jeremy's favorite dinners. It's soooo easy and very tasty. He has been working so hard lately I wanted him to come home and relax and eat something yummy. So here's what I made for my man.....

Beef Ravioli in Basil Cream Sauce

1 (24 oz pkg) frozen beef ravioli
2 tbsp butter1
1 (8 oz pkg) sliced fresh mushrooms
3 green onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
1 (10 oz can) diced mild tomatoes with green chilies, drained
2 tbsp. chopped fresh basil
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. salt
Prepare ravioli by boiling in a large pot of salted water according to directions. Drain and keep warm.
Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and next 3 ingredients. Sauté for 6 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Stir in tomatoes with chilies, basil and cream; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Add salt. Stir in cooked ravioli, toss to coat.
Quick and easy and yummy. Serve with garlic toast and salad.

Enjoy :)

15 months

Today was Graham's 15 month check-up. It went really well..other than the two shots at the end of the appointment :( We went and got a treat afterwards..I thought he deserved it :) He weighs 23 lbs and is getting so big!

He has such a funny personality. He loves to tickle people and LOVES to read books. I can already tell him the title of a book and he goes to get it. His favorite book is Goodnight Moon:) He's on the go all the time and I can't ever take my eyes off of him because he's always finding something to get into. He loves to play in the water and really enjoys being outside.

He has a busy summer ahead of him. Lots of swimming to look forward to, MDO twice a week, and a music class on Wednesdays :) Fun, fun!!!

Snicker Salad! YUM!

Last night was Bible study. My mother-in law and I were in charge of bringing desserts. You have to go to her blog to get her recipe for Berries and Bits. Simply divine :) Anyways, I made snicker salad and it's absolutely the best salad I make ;) The picture isn't all that great but I promise it's good.

5 green apples, cut in small pieces

5 snicker bars, cut in small pieces

1 tub cool whip

1 package cream cheese, softened

Blend cool whip and cream cheese until smooth. Mix in apples and snickers. Cool in refrigerator for a while and ENJOY :)

Picnic and Play

It has been so nice and HOT outside I decided to take Graham to the park today. First, we headed to sonic for a drink and Graham a special treat. He loves the grilled cheese sandwiches :) The whole time he ate he stared at all the kids and was very eager to play too. At times he thinks he's as big as them.

After he ate I put his swim shorts on him and he had the best time.......

He laughed and squealed the entire time. I love days like today :)

Date Night and Mother's Day

Well this has been a great weekend so far. Graham's GiGi and PawPaw kept him Friday night so Jeremy and I could have a date night and also to celebrate Mother's Day. This date was long overdue. We dropped him off and went to my favorite spot to eat and ate some yummy Mexican food :) I think something is wrong with me because I could eat Mexican food everyday and not have a problem with it. After dinner we got coffee and headed to stein mart for a little shopping. My man knows what makes me happy :) Thought the shopping was over until he took me to the boardwalk. We had such a great time. We picked Graham up on Sat. and he was all smiles......

We took him to the park. He LOVES it. He thinks he's just as big as all the other kids playing. Oh, how I love this little man. I am so thankful the Lord allowed me to be a mother. It's the best job I will ever have. He is the reason this day is so special to me :) He and his daddy brought me breakfast this morning along with flowers and a card. I love my boys so much ;)

Happy Mother's day to my mom, Michelle, and Lori!! I love y'all!! :)
