Small Successes

And sometimes they are very small, and that's O.K. For more small successes click on the link above.

1. New menu item this week....Calzones.

Big hit with everyone and very easy. All I did was use Pilsbury pizza dough and our normal pizza toppings. The only one who didn't like it was Elizabeth. We have a rule here that you have to at least try the food and if you really don't like it you may have a bowl of cereal. She insisted she tried it another time....but I haven't made them since she's been born. Elizabeth is also the one who was so upset before dinner a few months ago because she was hungry and I wouldn't let her eat crackers. We were going to be eating in less than 5 minutes. I told her we would be eating momentarily. She immediately broke down crying, "I don't like momentarily". Apparently she's had momentarily too and didn't like the taste of that either. So, to make a long story short. I don't judge my recipes by whether Elizabeth likes them or not.

2. Gathered Anna's Quarter report papers and mailed them in.

3. Went through my closet and dresser and removed EVERYTHING I no longer wear. I've been intending to do this for months but who has the time? Well, it took less than 10 minutes but it sure feels good to be able to put my clothes away without trying to cram them.

I do the cold cereal for dinner rule too! Love that, it makes life SOOO much easier, as long as there is a) cereal and b) milk. May have to try calzones on the kiddos tonight.
