Hello March and hello dear readers! How was your weekend? Did you do any of the tips from last week’s post? I am linking up today with Heather, etc. so go right here to join us!

I don’t have any pictures from Friday, but I had a good day. I stayed after school for over an hour getting work done. I felt like I had a good teaching week and it was a good feeling. After I left school I had a Kroger pick up scheduled. I had not done it since December because it was so bad the last time. I waited an hour and then my order still was so wrong. This time was wonderful. I was the only car there and I was done in 10 minutes. I really like getting the grocery run done on Friday. I may keep this up.

I convinced my husband and our friends to go to a Mexican place for an early dinner on hub’s way home from work. We had a nice time and when we left it was snowing. I got Cane’s for the boys and took it home to them and then we all watched a show. It was a perfect Friday night!

Saturday morning my son had to be at school early for a quick recall team road trip. I packed up my library books and went to the locally owned coffee shop and had the place to myself. Why don’t I do that more often? It was so nice. A former student waited on me, too!

This is the book I started getting into. I also made my list for the day.

I came home, did laundry, cleaned, organized, and made avocado toast for lunch.

Our other son had theatre all day and I enjoyed my spring Pioneer Woman magazine in the afternoon.

We decided to cook at home so I made Andrea from Momfessionals Southwest Bowls but I asked hub to go get authentic chips and queso from our Mexican restaurant up the road. Mexican two nights in a row!

We hung out as a family and caught up on everyone’s day. Nobody had plans to go out.

Sunday morning I actually slept in until 7! I spent the morning doing meal prep and kitchen cleaning.

I tried the recipe that Tanya from The Other Side of the Road blog shared. It has to rise for 2 hours but it only has 4 ingredients and it bakes up in 18-20 minutes. It is called No Knead Yeast bread and I will make it again! I was so impressed! Thanks Tanya!

I was feeling so domestic that I agreed to make one boy pancakes and the other french toast. Who am I?

I graded 4 sets of papers and then did school work.

My Monday self will certainly thank me, right?

Did you have a nice weekend? I hope so!

  1. Wow, that bowl looks so good! That’s my dinner tonight! The bread looks delicious too, but I don’t think we have that kind of yeast here. I’ve recently started to bake simple things like sponge cake and brownies, so bread is next on my list!
    Weekend was fine, bittersweet that the break is over… When do you have spring break? We had snow for the first time (gone now!) and the cabin was beautiful in the snowy landscape!

    1. Do you have the bowl recipe? You don’t have yeast packets? Our spring break is still almost a month away! I have so much work to do before then, too. I bet the cabin was gorgeous. Happy first day back – I bet your students missed you!


      1. I don’t have the actual recipe, but I guess minced meat, rice, taco sauce…? Yes we have yeast, but only “fresh” (I think,… I don’t bake that often :-D).
        I hope my students missed me! (I appreciate your sweet comment!) It’s good to be back! This week is quite calm, but next week the “national tests” start, it’s a heavy period for us teachers (and for the kids!).
        Happy Monday!

      2. I think just google momfessionals southwest bowl and it will take you to it. I’m not sure about the yeast issue? We have testing now, too. It seems like we are always testing for something!


    1. I actually thought of you and thought I should share the recipe! I will say it’s best right out of oven – second not as good. Hope to see you soon!


  2. We have a cute little Mexican place (like a food truck, almost) right down the street. Their food is good and sometimes we pick it up but it’s not AH-MAZING. Queso might be my favorite food lately though 🙂


    1. It was so easy! The hardest part was waiting 2 hours! I plan to make it again soon! I was feeling so Martha Stewart, yes. Looking forward to your link up tomorrow.
