Love As a Verb - Kinsey style

Gosh, I am such a blog slacker here lately.

I did post last weeks food menu to schedule post at midnight....or at least I thought I did, but realized on Thursday that it hadn't posted.  Geez!!!

Between the kids music lessons, trying to help mom get all the painting done at her new house before they lay flooring, cleaning/cooking, and 5489784544987 other things, I've passed out every night this past week within 30 minutes after we put the kids to bed.
I'm exhausted!

Saturday we had a fun-filled family day in Owensboro....unfortunately we didn't get to see Aunt Lisa because she was out of town.
We ran Chris's errands at R.M.R., took the kids to Chick-fil-A, to Books-A-Million for new books, and finally onto Champion Mazda to test drive a new vehicle we're planning on purchasing very soon!

After painting all afternoon on Sunday, my lungs are SUPER TIGHT!

After I folded and put away 10 loads of laundry today.....
....okay, so maybe it wasn't that many....more like six,
and got supper fixed, I was starting to feel even worse.

I told Kinsey to load the dishwasher while I went to soak in the tub.

About 5 minutes later Chris came up to talk to me (he had just got home), and he told me that Kinsey asked if he needed his separated container.
He said, 'Yes', not really sure why she was asking.
He said he heated up his dinner plate and turned around and she was making his lunch for work tomorrow.

He, of course, told her 'Thank you' and gave lovies and then came up and told me about it.

When I got out of the bath and went downstairs, I told her how thoughtful that was of her, gave her a hug and kiss.
She said, 'You're welcome, Mommy.  I know you don't feel very well today and I just wanted to help so you could rest.'


She's just so thoughtful and helpful for an 8 year old.

And I have to say, I'm VERY proud to call her my daughter.

Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu and Veggies

You know it's good when there are NO leftovers!

These little chicken cordon bleu wraps were soooo easy to make.

I dethawed three large chicken breasts.  Sliced them in half both length and width wise.

Pound until very thin.  Top with your choice of cheese.  I used S*rgento's Parmesan.

Big A may or may not have been jumping around the kitchen at this point, because he saw all that CHEESE! lol

Top with a piece of thinly sliced ham.

Roll and coat with bread crumbs.

Bake for 20 minutes.

I turned the broiler on the last few minutes, just to give them a little crunch!

We also had roasted Asparagus, blanched broccoli, Mac-N-Cheese, and white corn.
