Happy New Year! I'm so excited for this year to begin. The oldest bugger is getting so smart with number and letter recognition, he learns something new every day! The littlest bugger is just about crawling already and is just starting solid food. By New Year's 2012 he'll be walking all over and talking too, I can't believe it. Our plans this year include paying down our debt (hopefully paying off our car loan), going on a Mommy-Daddy weekend vacation to DC, and taking a family vacation to Ocean City, NJ this summer. I'm MOST excited that towards the end of April I will be an AUNT! God has amazing things in store for our family this year and I can't wait.
All last week I participated in the Countdown to 2012 Best Recipes hosted by Joy In My Kitchen. It was so much fun! I highlighted:
I made some resolutions for the New Year as I was perusing through all the yummy new recipes I've made. Most of all, I'd like to cook less with meat and more with my Crock Pot. I'm definitely going to have to start slow with my Meat Eating Man, so this week I'm focusing more on Crock Pot meals since chicken is basically on sale everywhere. (By the way, I'm on the lookout for some tasty non-meat Crock Pot meals. Let me know if you have one!) Here is the plan:
Tuesday- Crock Pot Lasagna
Wednesday- Broccoli & Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes
Friday- YOYO (You're On Your Own!)
Saturday- Cinnamon Pumpkin Pancakes
