Decisions, decisions

>> Tuesday, August 9, 2011

I am so excited to report that decisions have been made.  Tim took yesterday and today off so we could finalize some of the details for our renovations.

For the boys bath we are putting glow moon tile on the shower walls with a border of this mosaic and this tile in grey for the floor.

For the master bath this tile from Porcelanosa, with natif curry for the floor.

I am so excited that the tile has been finalized.  One decision down, 5 million more to go.


Intro to Meat

>> Wednesday, August 3, 2011

One day last week I went on a baby food making binge.  Carter is now 7.5 months and it is time he starts eating meat.  While the kiddos napped I made apples with cinnamon, chicken with sweet potatoes and apples, and chicken with carrots, sweet potatoes and peas.

The applesauce was the easiest to make and smelled the yummiest while cooking.

Just skin and cut up 3 apples add a little water to the pan along with a cinnamon stick and simmer for around 8 minutes.

Puree and serve or freeze some for later.

While I was making the apples, I started on the chicken and veggies.  This required searing the chicken then adding chicken stock and the veggies, and simmering for about 20 min.  For the chicken I just used the frozen boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins from Costco.

Also to simplify I used carrots that were peeled and ready to eat (wish I had thought of this when I was making baby food for Trent).

Last I cooked the chicken with apples and sweet potatoes.  This recipe was basically the same as above but had a little shorter cooking time.

Apples and sweet potatoes

All done

Both of the chicken recipes were made using just one pot which made cleanup faster.

Next batch of baby food will probably include some beef and pasta sauces. 


Master Bath

>> Tuesday, August 2, 2011

It is so hard to decided what I want my master bath to look like.  I keep changing my mind.  At first I wanted tumbled marble tiles for the shower, then I found some large tiles with subtle stripes on them.  Now I am leaning towards this tile

I am hoping this will coordinate well with the tub we already bought and the vanity I want to get from Pier 1 Imports.  

Even with all this picked out I still need to decide on flooring and the color of the cabinets.

Are there any interior designers out there?  I am losing sleep over all of the renovations.  There are just too many decisions to be made and probably to much money being spent.  I just want someone else to pick it all out and tell me what to do.
