It has been another crazy week. It seems like every week is crazy here lately. I was going to post yesterday, but by the time I got home last night I was too tired to even turn the computer on. Yesterday was a busy day anyway. I never stopped all day. We were just about to leave the house when my phone rang yesterday. I was packing the food up to make dinner at Grandmother and Papaw's house and it was Aaron's nephew calling to let us know that he and his brother and sister would be there for dinner too. They're 10, 12, and 14 years old. They eat a lot. I suddenly had to double the recipe. I grabbed some more chicken out of the freezer and another block of cheese from the fridge. I had to grab another box of macaroni and Aaron had to run to the store to get cream of chicken soup.
Dinner was one of my favorites. We had chicken bacon ranch macaroni and cheese with steamed broccoli and carrots and dinner rolls. The kids all seemed to like it. I was surprised because they stole all of the broccoli out of the veggies.
Today I was trying to relax and recover from yesterday's excitement. I sat in the living room watching Aaron play his game while Bailey was napping. Suddenly I remembered that I was supposed to make bread for dinner tonight. I jumped up and started on the garlic knots. They had just enough time to rise. I called ahead for Dad to preheat the oven and put them in as soon as we got there.
It's been an ugly day here too. It's rained all day and when it's cloudy and dark like this all day I just feel so sleepy. I was glad for some delicious spaghetti with turkey sausage tonight. For dessert my Dad and his girlfriend made flan. I had never had it before. The caramel was so sweet. I think I wasn't expecting that, but it was good.
This week is spring break for my Mom. She's a high school business teacher. One day this week she is going to come have either lunch or dinner with us. We're not sure when yet. There are no new recipes this week. I try to make the last week of the month as easy as possible because it's usually when I run out of ingredients if I made a mistake on my shopping list. It's also when I work on my list for the new month.

Hopefully Sunday will be ham with potato salad, pasta salad, deviled eggs, macaroni and cheese, honey yeast rolls, green beans, and some kind of special dessert. I will probably be making the potato salad, pasta salad, deviled eggs, rolls, and dessert. We try to give Aaron's Mom a break so she doesn't have to do all the cooking for Easter.
