Hey Try Something New

I love chinese food and so does my family.  So instead of making the same old dinner and instead of ordering out. I decided to try to cook some chinese food. I made a plain lo mein and teriyaki chicken with broccoli.  I also fried some yellow plantains.  I didn't tell them before hand what I was cooking. So when I ask my son what did the spaghetti remind him of and he said lo mein. It made this mom happy. The fun part of this is that I know what my family is eating. It was definitely less oily than takeout. I do want to tweak the recipe a bit more. Once I do that I will post it. In the meantime, here is a picture of tonight's dinner.


What's on your menu tonight?

My Treasure


My little girl made me a  Mother's Day card at school. She also bought me a cute plant. I posted the picture of it on Instagram. Her card will definitely go into my treasure box of memories.

Crayola My First Garden ~ Daises

I have to confess that although I love flowers.  I personally don't have a green thumb.   In the past it has almost been guaranteed that the plants in my care wouldn't have a positive outcome. It hasn't stop me from trying.  Now that the weather is warm again, I'm once again trying my hands in having at least one pot of flowers. I happen to see this at my local grocery store and decided to give it a try.

I like how it looks like a big crayon.  It has a array of different flowers to choose from.  I bought Crayola I Can Grow Kit ~ Daisies. I bought mine for only $4.99.  I say only because when I check on Amazon it's price at $8.75. So clearly the prices does vary.  It's really easy to set up. I place of half of the soil that it comes with in the container, then I spread out the seed and place the remaining soil on top.  I added water and in few minutes the soil expended.  I've had for about a two weeks.  Here is a picture of how it looks like now. I'm looking forward to seeing how my daisies will look in a couple of weeks.  Hey you never know this plant might last through the summer.
