Rosey Cheeks

Tootsie the Tooth Fairy

Keira lost her first tooth!

She also left a cute little note for the Tooth Fairy. She asked her a few questions and figured out a few things on her own. In the morning she had her answers.

1. The Tooth Fairy's name is "Tootsie"
2. "She is REALLY good at her job, because I didn't hear, see or feel her move my pillow!"
3. "She must be really tiny, because she brought her own marker to write her name. The pen I left her to use was too heavy/big for her to write with!"
4. She has deep pockets! She gave her $5 for her first tooth!

A little sleepy

Liam was a bit under the weather this weekend and his sleep schedule has been REALLY out of whack--to say the least!

It was still a little chilly this morning and the children had some energy, so we hit up the mall after dropping Keira off at school. We had the entire mall to ourselves--minus a few walkers.

Japanese and Sushi

We ate Japanese and Sushi with the children tonight! Wait. Let me clarify, the Aunties, Nana and I had Japanese and Sushi with the children. Not Randy. He doesn't care for Sushi--a shame!
Everyone enjoyed their food--yeah!

Creamed Spinach-Nom Nom

I made another creation....Creamed Spinach with Nutmeg. My family gobbled it up before the bacon and cheese wrapped pork! I now know to always make extra. :)

2 Tb chopped white onion
4 Tb Butter
2 Garlic cloves chopped
4 handfuls baby spinach
3/4 C Heavy whipping cream
Sprinkle of Nutmeg
1/2 C Parmesan Cheese

Heat a sauce pan on medium heat. Let the butter simmer. Throw in in your onions and garlic. Let them lightly brown. I quickly chopped up my baby spinach while the onions and garlic were browning--not a necessary step. Throw the spinach in with the onions and garlic. Cover for about 2 minutes. Sprinkle in your nutmeg (to your taste...we use about 1/4 tsp). Turn your heat down to med low and add your heavy whipping cream, let it thicken, stirring occasionally. Right before you serve stire in your Parmesan Cheese until it is melted. Serve! This would be an excellent sauce for topping chicken and pork.
