This week is winter break. Ava still has basketball and G and I are working so sadly we couldn't go anywhere this year :-(
Friday night Rachael and I had our monthly craft night. This month we made adorable burlap states and they turned out so cute! They were easy to make and it was a great craft night.

We got lots and lots of snow on Sunday. Everything we had scheduled was cancelled and we enjoyed a fun afternoon playing in the snow.

Yesterday we were all snowed in so we spent the afternoon playing in the snow and then we came in and had a delicious dinner. We all love chicken parmesan so I decided to try to make it at home.
Chicken parmesan is a heavy dish and to make it a little lighter I used a skinny taste recipe. I really liked this recipe and my family loved it too. Since we were snowed in I had time to make homemade bread to go with our meal It was a real treat!
I used my own homemade marina for the sauce.
1/4 onion finely chopped
garlic ( to taste I used 4 cloves)
1/4 cup sugar
2- 28 ounce cans diced tomatoes (tuttorosso is best)
basil to taste ( I used the squeeze tube from the grocery store since there was no fresh basil to be had)
1 t oregano
1 t onion powder
1 T salt
Cook onion in olive oil for 3 minutes, add garlic and cook for one minute stirring often, then add tomatoes and seasonings and simmer on stove for 2-3 hours stirring often.
I made the bread dough this morning in my mixer.
The bread-sticks were SO amazing and tasted very similar to Olive Garden's bread sticks! I will make these again for sure!
It was a perfect snow day meal!

We had a great Valentine's Day! My Dad turned 70 yesterday so I talked to him in the morning to wish him a happy birthday. We are going to celebrate as a family when we get together next month in Florida.
For dinner G picked up pizza and wings on his way home from work so we had that. We also gave the girls their Valentine's Day gifts.
