What's cooking this week?

Hello and Good Morning!!!! Sorry for being so MIA lately, work has been insane (more than usual)! I'd go into a long explanation about enrollment, class sizes, sections, units and the 197 schedule changes that had to be made 3 weeks into school - but it is Sunday after all and who wants to hear about all of that anyway! Since many of you are bloggers yourselves, I'm sure you understand that when life gets extra hectic and crazy, blogging is the low man of the totem pole and it's the first to go. Here is a visual of where it fits in my life:
1. Mommy
2. Guidance Counselor
3. Blogger 
Throughout my years of blogging I learned that IF it's stressing me out....I'm doing it wrong. No stress or pressure here, as soon as everything settles down you know I'll be back in the game and boy do I have a lot to update you all on! In the meantime, here is one department I haven't been slacking in....
Tonight: Spicy Corn Chowder and Steak for Hubs
Monday: Not cooking
Tuesday: Tacos!
Wednesday: Cucumber Avocado Subs
Thursday: Mozzarella Stuffed Turkey Meatballs

This weekend has been fabulous - just what I've needed! We met up with some friends yesterday for dinner, it was a blast seeing everyone. Total fail, I have no pictures though! The only thing I have to show for it is this bowl of yumminess that I brought over. It's a slight variation on THIS recipe from a while ago. I cut up salami, pepperoni, cheddar, and fresh mozzarella then added in some roasted red peppers, pepperoncini, marinated artichoke hearts, red and yellow grape tomatoes. I topped it off  by chopping up some goodies from the Fresh Market olive bar. Oh man, it was good!
Today I've got one thing and one thing only on my to-do list - loving on my little Ella Rose! Here she is enjoying her yummy breakfast this morning, too cute!
Happy Sunday!

  1. That salad looks ah-mazing! I love these posts - I can always count on it for some inspiration in the kitchen!

  2. Your right, sometimes life just gets too crazy hectic and we can't keep up with EVERYTHING
    For every busy spell there is a slower spell too.

  3. That antipasto looks delicious! Salads like that are always my favorite thing to bring to parties. Hope you had a great day with your little girl.
