---i spread it on SALMON... (see left picture). I just learned the yummiest way to cook Salmon... just buy a big piece (at Sam's), wrap it in aluminum foil (with lemon pepper or pesto on it) and cook it on top of your grill for about an hour... i don't have a grill so i use my pancake griddle. I just turn it up to 350* and leave it. SOOOO GOOD!
---i mixed the pesto with PASTA and peppers and shrimp and tomatoes and some fresh spinach leaves and salt (pesto is not salty)... mmmm. (see right picture).
yes, my kids eat these meals. they LOVE the salmon (except leah) and the shrimp!! they all ate the pasta and cheesey bread (i'm sure there is some Italian name for those appetizers...) a couple kids pick off the tomatoes, and a couple others LOVE the tomatoes... so it works.
anyway, LOVE that pesto stuff.
here is my GREAT ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!
i found AMAZING BUBBLES.
for only $1.
my friend, colita, told me about them.
i bought my kids bubbles for Easter and they stunk.
i HATE bubbles that don't blow, they just make a mess dripping all over your hand.
i HATE that.
these bubble sticks can be found at Wal-Mart by the registers and by the toys, i bought 4... pink, purple, blue, green. (should have bought 400-- you know, a year's supply)
i've never seen a wand like them before... it's long not small and round... but the bubbles are still circular. :)
last night for FHE (family home evening) we went to the park and it was so windy all i had to do was open the wand and watch the wind blow hundreds of bubbles.
it was magical.
and so, i LOVE these bubble sticks.
(they should have named them bubble wands-- sounds more magical.)
but, blowing bubbles is a grand start to the day...
want to hear a quick funny story from the park...
i was pushing leah in the swing and doing "under-dogs"... i think this may have been her first under-dog experience.
she has the cutest, happiest laugh.
she decided that she wanted to change swings, but she was still swinging. i asked her is she was going to jump off (like the big kids). She smiled and let go with one hand to jump but kept holding on with her other hand... she fell on her back in the chips. i smiled at her as she decided whether to laugh or cry... she got a big grin on her face and said, "Did you see that Mom?? I did an Under-BLONK!!"
love that girl.
