New recipe number 3

I decided that this week I would menu plan and we were having Italian all week. Next week is either Mexican or Asian. Not for sure which. So tonight we had a new dish and I got lots of thumbs up so I will probably add this in to a regular meal schedule (not to mention I get to finish off the leftover wine). Here is the recipe for the Chicken Marsala. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

The Gryphindor scarf is coming along nicely and I hope to have it finished in a few days. Then I'll have to make a second one for an online friend. I'm kinda happy to have all these projects lining up. Until next time.

And as promised the picture of a plate of pasta and Chicken Marsala.

Another new recipe for my 38 recipes challenge

Tonight we are having a Chicken and Rice crockpot recipe straight out of the Scrapshare cookbook. Can't wait to taste it. I'll take a pic and post.


Guess I should have said a little of what went on in life between my last post in August to the present.

Eragon had surgery at the end of September to have a mass removed from his back. It was cancerous and unfortunately came back the day after my birthday and the day after I came back from my scrap retreat in Alabama. He left this world on November 3. Thankfully it was a busy weekend so I didn't have a lot of time to dwell on it.

Mom and I went to the grand opening of Archivers on the fourth where she proceeded to get most of my Christmas shopping done. On the fifth we celebrated Jina's 16th birthday. That doesn't seem possible but I guess time does fly. We had a dinner at Logan's and then hung out at the Family Fun Center.

Thanksgiving was great. Shannon's family joined us for dinner this year so it was a busy big meal.

Oh the Saturday before Thanksgiving we got a new kitty and we named her Isis. She's a little insane but she fits right in.

Christmas was great as always. Santa was good to all three kids and the adults all got a little something we all really wanted. New Years was a blast. We had some new comers to the festival this year and it was so good to see Shirley and meet her new beau Michael.

So we are up to the present and I promise I'll post a few pics eventually.
