Things I've Learned This Week

** Shoveling snow by hand should be followed by a massage.  And possibly a lobotomy.

** The past several days have been like tantric sex.  Minus the sex part.

** If I ever need a good giggle, I turn to …

Crockpot Beef- My Own Recipe

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/13/crockpot-beef-my-own-recipe/

This is what I call a Lazy Mamas Crockpot Dinner!  I came up with this dish one morning with no recipe, I wasn’t inspired by anything in particular; I opened my refrigerator and had carrots, pre-sliced mushrooms and chuck roast.  That was dinner.  You can see how lazy I was because I didn’t even cut the carrots, but with…

Crockpot Mexican Chicken

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/28/crockpot-mexican-chicken/

I put together this crockpot on a cold, snowy day.  I knew by lunch-time that the last thing I wanted to do was stand in the kitchen cooking dinner come 5pm so this was perfect!  I put all of the ingredients in the crockpot, stirred and turned it on high for 4 hours.

Though I couldn’t taste anything (thank…

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/14/crockpot-chicken-tortilla-soup/

I put this crock-pot together on Sunday when the boys were recovering from the flu.  Yes, I already know what you’re thinking… Mexican food?  With the flu?  Crazy, right?  Well, they pretty much spent Friday and Saturday on the couch, eating nothing but toast with jelly,…

Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/07/crockpot-french-dip-sandwiches/

Ahhhhh Sunday.  I needed Sunday.  We went to church in the morning and then I took a little Sunday drive by myself while the boys (all 3 of them) napped. I listened to music, sipped a soy latte and cleared my head.  It was refreshing after all of my stressful ob-gyn stuff.  I’m still stressed about…

Crockpot Lemon Garlic Chicken

I threw this crock-pot together last minute after pre-school and it turned out great!  Though the colors in the picture are kind of ‘boring’… the flavor of this dish are NOT!  Our boys loved it; and it was even more delicious over Creamy Parmesan Rice!  I also steamed their fav veggie- edamame!  Wonder why the love edamame? ; )  Its playful and kid friendly – so fun to ‘pop’!  Lastly, I didn’t want to take the time to brown the chicken like the directions say, so I literally threw every last…

Date Night Dinner : Spaghetti with Clams

Our schedule has been insane this week and the only down-time we’ve had is nap-time.  The rest of the day; morning, afternoon and evening has been filled with pre-school, kids play-dates/Christmas parties, a company Christmas party and a few other night time events too!  Brian said to me last night,

How about a movie night and early bed-time on Friday?

I will never turn that down; sounds perfect!  I declined an invite to a Cookie Exchange…

Creamy Crockpot Chicken

I pulled this out of Rocco’s book-bag this week.  When I asked where Mary was, his response was, “Mary went out shopping.” And Roman said, “Yeah! Mawy’s buying Chwistmas presents!”

I mean, at least they knew where she was, right?

I happened to do more Christmas shopping of my own this…

Turkey and Beef Chili

Find this recipe at: http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/08/turkey-and-beef-chili/

The last time I attempted to make a pot of Chili, it was so spicy that no one could eat it except for my dear hubby.  I could only down a tiny bowl and it was a total bust.  I’d venture to say that not many taste testers could’ve handled the heat.  Why so hot?  Well, I met a can of Adobo…

Sleep? Who Needs It?... And What Day is it Again??

Pregnancy is not kind on the sleep cycle. Neither is a two year old child. So the combination of being pregnant and having a toddler has translated into my averaging about 4.5 hours of sleep a night, as of late.  I’ve heard lots of conventional wisdom about establishing an evening routine as a family, so that everyone can get some much needed rest.…

A Mom with Simple Taste

http://www.reanaclaire.com/2012/05/mom-with-simple-taste.html

ACTUALLY I am a very simple eater... times when I do not post up outside food, those drooling and tempting food, that means I am just having a simple meal at home... so simple that many of us do not find them appetizing at all.



This evening I came home after 7pm and since it was quite late, I was too lazy to go to my mum's…

Fifty Shades of Nutella

I’m standing at the kitchen counter about to start dinner.  I open the cabinet to round up the ingredients for this evening’s meal and I see it, that seemingly innocent white-lidded jar, beckoning my attention.  I look away and continue gathering my supplies, but its call is too great to ignore.  I remove the Nutella  from the cabinet and slowly twist off…

Weeknight Meal: Easy Baked Ziti

One of our favorite weeknight meals is Baked Ziti.  My husband spent two years in Italy. He claims to know Italian food and has given it his stamp of approval. I'll take that.



Baked Ziti is a grand departure from the pasta meals of my childhood.  I…

When Dinner Fails

Who here has never burned dinner?  Show of hands, please?  Great, no hands.

Has anyone ever misread a recipe and ended up with something not fit for man nor beast?  Oh look, lots of hands there!

Have you ever forgot to take a crucial dinner ingredient out to thaw, or forgotten to pick it up at the store?  Yes, I thought so.

Ever set your kitchen on fire, rendering your stove inoperable? No?  Just me, then.

I've had all of those…
