favourite pictures & highlights from this week

Just good things today, promise.

Do I need to say anything about how ridiculously cute this picture is? Nolan showing off all EIGHT teeth. There may be more now, I’m too afraid to stick my finger in his mouth again to find out.

Typical man…Mr. Cop-a-Feel.

Auntie Jo-Jo, what the hell??

Trying to figure out the bubble maker machine…


Only he can pull off hats like that. I tried, and he doesn’t get that ability from me…

Some highlights from this week:

  • When Jo-Jo came to visit for a couple of days.
  • Getting to see two of my friends from back home.
  • Pushing Nolan on the swing – for the first time.
  • Matt getting a bigger than expected paycheck (which is already gone to bills and his truck…sigh).
  • Nolan starting to walk around more each day.
  • Nolan’s attempts at “running”.
  • Nolan walking up to me, pointing to his mouth and then mimicking chewing every time he was hungry to let me know that I should, well, you know, feed him.
  • Last night’s dinner.

Pesto Chicken Alfredo casserole.

Ingredients: Pesto, 3 chicken breasts, Club House Garlic and Red Pepper seasoning, Club House Montreal Chicken Seasoning, garlic, noodles, Alfredo sauce, 1 can of mushroom soup, your choice of veggie (we did peas and carrots because they are Nolan’s favourite), and shredded cheese (we also used Parmesan on the top).

  • Dice the chicken into bite-sized pieces and then fry it in a frying pan until it’s cooked and put Club House Garlic & Red Pepper, and Club House Montreal Chicken Seasoning on the chicken. Crush (or add) the garlic. Toss in two table spoons of pesto and coat the chicken.
  • Boil the water; add noodles and cook until desired softness.
  • Boil/microwave the veggies.
  • Toss everything (once it’s cooked) into a mixing bowl and add the Alfredo sauce and mushroom soup. Stir in some shredded cheese (we like cheese, I use 1/2 a cup to stir in the mixture).
  • Put into a casserole dish, spread some shredded cheese on the top (we added Parmesan cheese as well).
  • Cook at 350 for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Let it stand for 5 minutes to cool down and then dig in!

How was your week?
