Dear Pasta Roni

Filed under: Uncategorized — adventuresofsupermommy @ 6:53 pm

Just a quick humor for you.

The Microwave Directions on the side of my box of Shells & White Cheddar Pasta Roni read as follows:

In 2-quard microwaveable bowl, combine 2 cups water, 2 tablespoons of margarine or butter. Microwave uncovered at HIGH 10 minutes. Stir. Microwave at HIGH 4 – 7 more minutes. Stir in 2/3 cup milk and Special Seasonings. Microwave at HIGH 2 – 3 minutes. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3 – 5 minutes before serving.
Microwave ovens vary; adjust times as needed.

Does anyone notice what’s wrong with this? I’m sure there are a bunch of people following the directions to the letter and coming up with… SAUCE!

Yes, I tried taking a picture of it, but it’s not legible, and I have no scanner at home.

I’m still alive!

Just wanted to say all is well, just been running around like your proverbial headless chicken, har har.

I have just about finished completely redecorating my bathroom and Kaylee’s birthday is tomorrow, with her party being Saturday. So, I’ve been taking on too much for one person to handle, of course. Pics and tutorials will be coming, soon!

Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Filed under: Uncategorized — adventuresofsupermommy @ 6:28 pm

This is the “baked” kind of mac-n-cheese, not the creamy kind.  Also, this recipe can easily be doubled for a bigger crowd.

8 oz package macaroni (I like spiral pasta, the cheese sinks into the ridges so nicely)

1 large can of evaporated milk

1 1/2 cups milk

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1 cup medium cheddar cheese, shredded

1/2 cup margarine or butter, cut into tablespoon-sized chunks

2 eggs

pepper, to taste

Cook macaroni according to package instructions (don’t forget the salt or it’ll taste nasty) and drain. Mix everything together in a large bowl.  Grease crock pot with a little butter or margarine or spray with cooking spray.  Pour into the crock pot.  Optional: sprinkle on more cheese on the top, because who doesn’t like more cheese?  Cook on low for 3 1/2 to 4 hours (or cook on high for 1 hour, then low for 1 – 1 1/2 hours).  Don’t leave it on high for the whole time, or it’ll be burned to a crisp.  Enjoy!

The Mission Begins

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — adventuresofsupermommy @ 12:51 am

“Remember, the important thing is to have healthy, happy kids—not necessarily a clean house.  If you survive with most of your sanity, that’s an added bonus.”

I am a stay at home mom with two beautiful little girls.  Kaylee is almost two years old and Abigayle (Aby) is two months old.  Somehow I manage to feed both of them, keep a not-so-clean house, and sometimes I can fit in a craft project or two.  I often hear “I don’t know how you get it all done with the two of them.”  Sometimes, I don’t know how I get it done, either.  My girls are happy and healthy, though, and that’s the most important part.

This blog is about my opinions on child-rearing, tips on how to get anything done and my observations on the world and a place for me to brag about my babies.  If you don’t agree with any of my opinions, that is not only okay but welcomed.  Some of these things may work for me but not for you, and that’s okay.  I just hope you find something useful or even thought-provoking.

Like I said, I’m a stay at home married mother.  My deepest respect goes to working parents, stay at home dads, and single mothers.  You are all super-heroes to me!  So if I say anything that seems to be gender-specific, don’t take offense.  I only hope you can get something out of my ramblings, if only a tip here and there or even just a few laughs.  Even people without kids might find a few tips here.

The Beginning

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — adventuresofsupermommy @ 3:04 pm

This blog started out as a joking text conversation between my friend Jenny and myself. I was telling her about my day and said something about being a SuperMom for the day and she said I needed a cape. Eventually, we decided that I needed a polka-dotted cape and costume complete with food stains and spit up on the shoulders.

In the real world, I am a stay at home mom with a 19 month old daughter and 3 week old newborn daughter. Juggling the two of them isn’t easy, but somehow I have managed to keep the two of them fed and alive without major injuries or insanity. I have a wonderful husband who helps me as much as possible (yes, daddy changes diapers). He will be known as my sidekick, Geekdad, whose mild-mannered alter-ego is the Labyrinthine Librarian. (his blog is LabyrinthineLibrary.wordpress.com)

This blog will be not only my daily adventures with the two of them as well as me bragging on my babies, but my thoughts about parenting, venting my frustrations, and just my general take on the world.

Please note, I will be posting things in between chasing after my little ones, etc. So if there are typos or grammatical errors, cut me some slack. *grin*
