We're slowly getting back into routine. Last week was school and church; this week dance.
I'm trying to get cooking at home back into routine. For the new year we have been trying to limit processed food. We typically have a crockpot meal on Mondays, but Craig treated us to dinner. He fixed a BBQ brisket, green beans and macaroni and cheese. So I figured I return the favor, we tried something new... Parmesan Chicken Meatballs and a big salad topped with my new favorite Roasted Red Pepper Italian Dressing!
The girls loved them with a side of leftover macaroni and cheese and we enjoyed something different and healthy.... this was my first time cooking with ground chicken. I adapted this from a recipe I found on Pinterest.
Parmesan Chicken Meatballs
2 lbs ground chicken
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
1 t. Garlic Powder
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
Mix chicken,parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, egg and half mozzarella cheese. Roll into golf ball size meatballs. Mix 1/4 cup pizza sauce and 3 tbl olive oil and brush over each meatball. Cook 15 mins on 400°. Remove and top with a teaspoon of pizza sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Return to oven and turn to low broil for 5 minutes.
Other recipes I've seen include onions, bell pepper, parsley, etc. I'm sure any combination would be an improvement, but I tried to keep it simple. - Enjoy!

We spent the rest of the week and weekend in our Pj's playing at the house. We all had a touch of the Crud and a cold, and Brooke had a stomach bug, so we had good excuses to not get out of our PJ's. We played games, worked puzzles, painted faces, sang, danced, you name it! A perfect way to spend the last weekend of the year!
Again - Happy New Year, may your 2014 be as blessed as our 2013!

And then another day I volunteered to help with their Fall Frolic. Such fun.

As you can see from our post, we have had much to be thankful for this year. We survived the year with no hospital visits or surgeries and very few doctors appointments. After 2012, this is a huge blessing. So we are thankful for family, health, and all of our many blessings!
