"Better Than Take Out Noodles" (NOT).

I have been wanting to cook Asian food more often. Partly for Emma and Sophie, & partly because we just like good Asian food! (Which is not easy to come by where we live). I ran across a recipe for "Better Than Take Out Noodles" in the Sunday paper last week, we had 90% of the ingredients needed in the pantry already so I decided to give it a try. I made them for dinner for Greg and I last night. They were DISGUSTING. REALLY BAD. The peanut butter was SO HEAVY and thick, we were gagging. We had A TON left over so I served some to Emma and Sophie for lunch today.............

(1) "Oh Mommy, I am not so sure about this. I want Mac & Cheese". (2). "I'll give you a fake smile. When you are not looking the dogs will get this".
(3). "Wait! These are not bad at all. I like peanutbutter and I like noodles, what a good combo".
(4). "Want MORE"!
Emma and Sophie BOTH liked the receipe. They *did* drink a lot of water with lunch though. ;)

"Halloween Doo" & "Poochie"

I gave Emma a creative little hairstyle for school today. ;) She IS opionated about how she wants her hair done, but she still lets me have my way...... sometimes.

Emma has become very interested in all of MY old toys. In the first picture she is holding "Lady" from Lady & the Tramp. I got this toy when I was 7 so that makes it 28 years old...*yikes*....but Emma LOVES it as much as if it were brand new.

In the 2ND picture Emma is holding "Poochie" that I received sometime around the age of 7-10, I think? DO NOT be fooled though; Emma is VERY MUCH looking forward to Christmas this year. She has figured out that this Santa guy brings toys and that you can make a list. :)


Sophie enjoyed some one to one time with Daddy before bed last night. :-) It lasted for about 5 minutes and she was out!
