It's Spring Break!!!

Yay!!! I'm very excited! Today started Spring Break with short day at work. I don't go in until 9:30 on Fridays and then school was released at noon. I was able to eat lunch at Mr. T's with Kevin, my dad, and Justin today! That is a nice treat when I usually only have 30 minutes for lunch. What is even better is that I don't have any grad school assignments due anytime soon so I don't have homework I have to do! If I choose to work on some when I have time, then I can, but they aren't due immediately.

We don't have any big plans for this week really. I'm going to work on our business's webpage and do some spring cleaning on my house. It has gotten disorganized during during the last couple of months. I'm in the mood to throw a bunch of stuff away. One of my main goals is to get my cookbooks back in order and organized. I have a lot a new recipes that I like since I've been menu planning and I want to get them all put in a binder.

My brother came over to visit us last night! I really enjoyed it! I had made the Chicken Tortilla Soup in my crockpot that day so we ate dinner, visited, watched TV, and I made Lemon Bars! They were the ready make box kind but were really good! Justin loved the soup but I thought it was a little bland. If you put cheese and sour cream on top it was good but not fantastic. I liked being able to put it all together ahead of time and then it cooking while I was subbing at Crockett but I think I'm going to look for a new recipe for that soup.

I'd like to go on a 1 night overnight trip this week to either San Marcos or maybe Dallas or even to Lane Bryant in Abilene but we'll see. I doubt it will happen.

The Tropical Island pork I cooked earlier this week was pretty good. I think I would like the sauce better on pork chops than pork loin roast. It would be good shredded up in a tortilla. The cheeseburger pie would've been REALLY good if...I hadn't overcooked the bacon. I got it too crisp in the pan and then when I put it in the pie it got a little burned. I'm giving up on cooking bacon because I always get it too done or just plain burned. Kevin will have to cook the bacon from now on because I give up! I have been all over Wal-Mart and Albertsons and at this point cannot find any Orzo pasta for that casserole I want to make. I think I might call HEB or IGA to see if they have it before I go look for it. So I don't know if that casserole will get made.

Well I've rambled on for long enough with no real news...
