Wow what a morning...Chloe got a little cough so last night wasnt such a great night for my little peanut. She was up every hour....so of course this am was a ver slow start for the Nguyen resident... I dont think 2 venti starbuck could even save me today.
I finally dragged myself out of bed at 745 am ...got myself dressed...then all the kids dressed...feed Chloe....then got breakfast for Madison n Ethan...this was definitely a cereal n milk kind of day for me but they wouldnt have it that way (of course) ...Ethan wanted rice...Madison...CANDY...the way I was feeling..she could have knock herself out with the whole candy jar....hehe
Then I threw in my bed sheets to get wash (every weeks routine...I gotta change my sheets once a week...) then grab the vacuum...getting it ready for when the 2 lil monkeys finished their breakfast. Chloe napping on the swing..so I took this opportunity to get all my phone calls/email in...made appt for all my showing tomorrows. Paid all my bills and called the AC guy to service AC (upstairs unit not getting cold....as I would like it too)
I think I had a very productive morning so far....wash/dry 2 loads of clothes, vacuum the whole house, pay all bills and got all appt for showing done..
Hope everyone is having a Great Thursday!!
Cant wait for the WEEKEND....

LIFE with 3 little ones has been FUN...CRAZY...DIFFERENT...FAST and has put the BLOG on the backburner...
So..here is an UPDATE in a NUTSHELL

3 cups of beans (I soak mines over night)...it will expand so put it in a big pot when u are soaking it
1 stick of butter
sausage (I buy the spicy sausage)
pickles meat and bacon
pickle ham (u can used any type of meats that u like)
1 small onion (cut into small piece)
4 stalks of celery (cut up into small pieces)
2 t of garlic power
1 t of sugar
1 T of worschester sauce
1 t of onion power
1 t of dried parsley
1 t of chili power
2 bay leaf
Fill a large pot up with h2o --I pour in a whole gallon ...then I just throw everything in the pot and cook on high until it gets boiling then I turned it to low and cook for about 4 hours...at the end I would smooch the beans again the pot so that it would get that creamy consistency
I like my sausage to have a grill taste so I cook the sausage separately
Every monday I go thru the same thing especially after a great weekend with family filled with yummy food and wonderful company...WHAT TO COOK?? or WHERE TO EAT??
I guess its a red bean and rice ....I just want to throw everything in a pot and get on my day.....
pay bills, shopping list for the week, make out my weeks menu and return all emails
HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!!!
