Home Depot Class Field Trip

This is our second class trip this year. The first class trip was an IMAX movie The Polar Express back in December. We were unable to go because The Cisco Kid got sick. He has seen that movie many times but what he missed most was riding in the bus. Needless to say he was very excited to go on this class trip so he could hop aboard the bus. This was also the first time Chaperones were allowed to ride with the class. Usually we had to have our own transportation. I could defiantly say, I will never ride the bus again. It had to be 90 degrees and sitting there with 40 over excited loud seven year olds was not the way to go.

At first I thought, Home Depot for a Class Trip. Not very exciting! We go to Home Depot all the time, so we know that store like to back of our hands. Home Depot did a very cute job keeping the children entertained. The theme was all about gardening and they were very generous with making sure all the children went home with a bag full of garden goodies.
They let all the children pick what flower or vegetables seeds they liked. The Cisco Kid loves great BIG sun flowers.
All the children's names went in the flower pot and since The Cisco Kid was the teachers assistant yesterday he picked the winning names. The winners won tomato plants with pots, garden tools and flowers. 
Home Depot also gave Mrs. S a very large assortment of flowers. 
Then we all went on a tour of the garden department and he explained the difference between annuals and perennials.
Next Field Trip..... Alligator Farm.  Now that should be fun!!!

Ten more new pages from my blog book.

Here are some more of my pages that I have created out of my 2009 blog. Blurb is a company that offers many different size books. It was so easy to download my blog into their Free Blurb book smart program so this book can be created. I have completed 200 pages and I have approximately sixty more pages to go.

Hot Corn Dip with home made Torillas

This hot corn dip is more than just a dip, it could also be a side dish or you could do like I do and eat it as your main meal. I make full of flavor , home made seasoned crispy totilla chips to serve with the dip.
1/2 cup of chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning
2 cans of 11 oz. sweet yellow corn, water drained
1 can of sweet cream corn
1 can of diced tomatoes and green chilies, drained and diced smaller
2-1/2 cup shredded Mexican style four cheese
1/8 cup of olive oil
Mix all ingredients together except for 1/2 cup of shredded cheese and olive oil. 
In a 5x7 baking dish add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the baking dish.  Add the dip mixture and put the remaining cheese on top.  Bake on 350 degrees for 30 minutes. 
I like a less chucky tomato in my dip so I chopped them up.  

Home made Seasoned Crispy Tortilla Chips

1/4 cup Olive oil and 1 tablespoon of Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning mixed together
1 package of Carb Balance Medium soft flower tortillas cut into 8th's.

Brush each side of the tortilla slices with the olive oil mixture. Salt to tast.

Time that he earns his keep!!!

The Cisco Kid has chores around the house he must do. At this point he does them without complaints. He doesn’t have many to do. He only has to make his bed, keep his room clean and put his dirty clothes in the hamper. I feel it is time for him to have a little more responsibility so I added some more chores to his list. He must put the recycles in the recycling bin located in the garage. Bring his laundry basket to the laundry room on laundry day. Hang his clothes in the closet once they are on the hangers. He gave me a little bit of an argument only because I interrupted his game of Wii. He stopped arguing with me real fast when I told him he will never play Wii again if he doesn’t cooperate.

He is so tired of me taking his picture.  I am always reminding him to smile.  Not this time!!!!  He was more than eager to smile.  He knew if I got my shot I would move on and he could go back to playing his game.
Hanging clothes in record time. I think I'm on to something here.   
Back to his game.
