I'm sorry.

I haven’t posted in a long, long time…because I’ve been knee-high in boxes for a long, long time. We LOVE the new house, but it’s still a disaster area! The kitchen is finally set up and the kids each have usable bedrooms…but that’s about it. I finally ordered my new living room furniture, but it won’t be here for 6-8 weeks! 🙁 I guess we’ll just have to keep out the fold out chairs until then. I have to admit that I’ve made a make shift chaise lounge out of boxes and old comforters. It’s not so bad until I try to heave my huge, pregnant booty up off the floor! 🙂

We had dinner “guests” for the first time tonight; my parents and brother. They’d eaten here before, but it was only take out and it was on paper plates. So…tonight I tried a new recipe for Maple Pork Chops with Apples.  It was such and easy and yummy recipe that it’s sure to become a staple here. 

We also had some broccoli that I steamed in the newish Ziplock Zip n’ Steam bags. In only six minutes I had perfectly steamed, absolutely delightful broccoli!  Cut up fresh broccoli, shake in some Italian seasoning, steam in the microwave, and then pour on a little butter and garlic salt.  Heaven, I tell you.

We did take a break from packing this weekend to go to the “big” fair about an hour away.  It was misting some, but never a full rain.  We only rode 2 little rides, but the kids had a blast!  They really enjoyed riding the ponies, seeing the big horses, and sampling the food goodies.  Tucker likes cotton candy and Em loves caramel apples with sprinkles.  I have some pretty cute pictures, but I can’t seem to find my cord that connects my camera to the computer.  So…soon (I hope!) we’ll have some pictures up of not only the fair, but our house, too!  I want to have at least something on the walls before I take pictures! 

Your regularly scheduled blog will return soon! In the meantime, go check out the pork recipe and enjoy a yummy and easy dinner!

    I tried roasting broccoli this weekend. It was surprisingly good. I’ll have to pick up some of the steaming bags and try them, too. I’m glad y’all are in the house (even though there are some boxes left).
