Chicken Alfredo Recipe

Muy excelente! I really felt like a chef preparing this one and wished I hadn't chosen a Tuesday to attempt it. Way too many ingredients for a weeknight.
CHICKEN ALFREDO - I doubled the recipe to ensure leftovers, left out the mushrooms because, "Yuck" and used Spinach fettuccini noodles which smelled really gross while cooking. Just FYI.

MY NEXT ENDEAVOR....My husband admits to eating gas station cuisine and even claims the best hamburger he has ever eaten was purchased at a gas station. That said, his stomach must be made out of steel and so loves hot and spicy food. I figure something wrapped around a jalapeno would be a great meal to offer for our 5th anniversary coming up June 5th.

M&M's with a Side of Guilt

My joyful four year old J came bopping into the living room and said, "Mrs. Amy..." I was humored and she was embarrassed. Wait a minute. Isn't she supposed to be calling her teacher "Mom" by mistake? Isn't mom the one she instinctly calls out for when she has a problem or needs something? Could it possibly be the fact that J spends more time with her teacher than with me? Oh summer. You save me from being completely devoured by guilt.
Speaking of guilt, I may deserve a little for my new potty training technique. I bought a 42 oz bag of M&Ms at Target the other day going on and on throughout the store that they were for all of us to celebrate A's poo-poos in the potty. I figured her going "number one" was far too frequent and I wanted my $8.00 investment to last a while. Through several missed attempts, (and my self-control) the bag of M&Ms has remained closed until I came up with a brilliant idea. Now, everytime A doesn't make it to the potty, I'm going to give big sister J some M&ms. So cruel, but I assure you, much more affective!
