I am in!

Being a mom is the hardest job! Every mom needs one hour out for herself, right?
"Time Our for Theta Mom Thursday" was created by Theta Mom last week.
When I read her post, I said loudly 'Oh Gosh! She is reading my mind :-)
What a great idea it is!'
Yesterday was a beautiful day. I went to the beach :-)
Digging my feet into hot sand, drinking my large size iced- mocha, watching ocean and listening the waves rolling in...It was havenly!

When I got back home I was smiling. All night, couldn't stop smiling. I was feeling like a bird!
I'm still feeling great!

Thank you Theta Mom for this great idea! I can't wait to read how the other moms spent their hours out!

Scrambled Eggs with Feta Cheese

(for 3)
6 eggs or 1 1/2 cup egg beater
1 tsp oregano
1/2 black pepper
1/2 cup crushed feta cheese (low fat), milk

In a bowl beat the eggs. Add cheese, pepper and oregano. Spray a nonstick omelet pan.
Pour a splash of milk into the eggs. The milk helps keep the eggs light and fluffy. Stir the eggs with a silicone spatula to begin to scramble them.

If you want an all around "good for you" and you aren't terribly concerned with cholesterol, use the original. If you want extra protein, less fat, then use the beaters.

Egg beaters has 6 grams of protein, 0 fat, 30 cals, and 0 cholesterol. They are great to use when you want an omelette or scrambled eggs.

You may seperate the yolks and add only one egg yolk. One egg yolk has about 300 micrograms of choline. All I know is, it is an important nutrient that helps regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.

My son loves loves this! Here is a picture of him while he was eating his scrambled eggs with cheese for brunch! I love the swetear he wore and I'm still keeping it :-)

P.S Please don't eat this!

Banana Bread

2 bananas(mashed)
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup nuts(optional)
pinch of salt

In a large bowl, combine sugar, oil, milk and eggs. Beat in bananas. Add remaning dry ingredients. Bake in 350 degrees in a greased, floured 9x13 inch pan. This is the first time I used whole wheat flour instead all purpose for this recipe. We loved it!

Aria asked me to make a banana bread yesterday. So I noticed, haven't shared this with you guys yet! I was in hurry and saved some of it in a container to take a picture later.
After the breakfast I took Aria to the water park which is very close to home. He loves this place. My hubby didn't join us.
He had things to do. Whatever, everybody was happy!

When we got back home, grabbed the camera, walked in to the kitchen.
I would post it after the dinner. Container was there, not placed into the diswasher. But only the crumbs remain ;(
My hubby ate it all!!!
I left a message about a few things but forgot to tell him not to eat it.
So I decided to put his picture instead. Isn't it a good idea?

This is my guy! Love him. He is a good friend. And good friend is hard to find!

Beer Can Chicken Recipe

My hubby doesn't cook but he loves food and loves chicken ;) So I noticed that he really interested this recipe.
Lucky me!!! He likes the recipe. We all like chicken. Great! Then, let's do it every week ; )

1 whole chicken
1 tall can beer

olive oil or vegetable oil, salt, black pepper, basil
3 garlic cloves (crushed)

I was talking to my friend Eileen yesterday. This recipe idea came from her.
Thanks Eileen!!!Hugs :) I have her cranberry sauce recipe which I would love to share with you guys! It's on my list. Waiting for thanksgiving ;)

Get the chicken ready for cooking (or let your husband do it ;D)
It will be fun.

Use your favorite rub or here is my favorite meat rub;
Olive oil, basil, garlic,salt and a pinch of cayenne.

Get a can openner. Open up the top of the can and drop in the crushed garlic.
Oil up the can. The beer can goes into the chicken's body cavity. Cover your grill and cook the chicken. Great with garlic and potatoes!!!
If you drink beer, use your favorite for better taste!!! hehe :)

By the way you see twitter follow me button on left side. I'm pretty new on twitter. Trying to figure it out ; D

Just because he loves sharing!!!

I heard about a new fun thing. It's called 'what would your child do' If you would like to participate, visit Marianne's blog, Family American Style.

Kids are amazing and full of surprises. It is a great idea to share our family fun stories, unforgettable memories each other.

Our son, Aria was 2 years old. He was in living room and playing with our doggie, Carmen.
If you are just started to follow maybe you don't know. She passed away one year ago. Sometimes I hear her voice just like she is here. We all miss her a lot!

So, I was in the kitchen and heard a noise coming from livingroom. Aria was screaming, laughing and Carmen was angry, barking loudly. Actually she was a very quiet girl. I had never seen her before like that. When I walked in to the room, Aria was on top of her and trying to put his own pacifier into her mouth :) He was having a lot of fun, but not poor Carmen! Today when I told him he said ' oh, poor Carmen, I 'm so sorry girl! He was looking into the sky while he was saying that! Yeah, we do this sometimes. Talk to her just like she is still here, with us!

He was so happy:)I don't know how many times but he jumped off the diving board again, again and again. I've never seen him before tired like that ;)When we back home he fell asleep while watching TV. My hubby was resting and I was taking my time checking emails, reading comments.
