Back to Basics Cooking School

This is wonderful!! Alex and I are going to do an on line cooking class called Back to Basics Cooking School that starts this week. It's a 14 week program that allows you to cook at your own pace! This is a great way to freshen up on your cooking skills or just plain old learn how to cook! Alex and I are both excited (I'm sure me more then him!!) My goal is to make him more self sufficient. One day I want him to be able to step into the kitchen without asking ME what is their to eat. Now that would be nice!! Thanks Shelley at Back to Basics Cooking for your help. Watching you on the computer makes Alex seem to listen more closely then when I try to teach him in the kitchen. Go figure...

I am hosting another House Party. This one is for Healthy Choice. It is going to be awesome. I've got a lot of planning to do before September 20th. I really love the new Healthy Choice entrees. They are not only delicious but very healthy. I will keep everyone informed of my progress!

Shool Bus Safety

Yesterday at Alex's school they celebrated School Bus Safety Week. This is a yearly opportunity for the young kids to meet the bus drivers, check out the bus, go through the emergency exits,etc. Alex wanted to ride the bus with the big kids since kindergarten.( He never went to preschool, since the thought of being away from him all day was just too stressful to me:> )I drove him the entire 3/4 of a mile to school that first year. By the way, what ever happened to WALKING to school? Anyways, since first grade he has had the same bus driver. His name is Mr. Jimmy. Alex is now in the fourth grade. In the last four years, dear Mr. Jimmy has never been late, never been sick, and has even knocked on our door to return things that our sometimes forgetful Alex left in his seat. God bless Mr. Jimmy. Not only do I trust him with our precious son, I admire the dedication and love that he has for these little folks. That to me is what School Bus Safety is all about- someone who cares for a child as if they were their own!!

Chubbie Chica

I have just found a really amazing blog called Chubbie Chica. All of the recipes are designed for folks like me who are trying to eat healthy. The recipes include the Point System from Weight Watchers- although I personally have never tried Weight Watchers. It is quite obvious that Chubbie Chica spends a lot of time and effort putting together a wonderful, healthy weekly meal plan. I have just spent over an hour scouring all the helpful hints and recipes she has listed. This is a blog that I will certainly return to weekly!
